What will it be today?
Park, pipe, pitches, or pow? Cruising or crushing? Rossignol created the Krypto Magtek Snowboard for riders with serious commitment issues that want to play the field and ride the entire mountain. This little brother of the Experience snowboard delivers a balanced, forgiving flex thanks to the Amptek Freestyle hybrid camber and twin directional shape, so you can ride hard anywhere, any day, all day.
- Amptek Freestyle camber gives you slight (.5mm) camber between the contact points and slight rocker in the tip and tail to balance stability with maneuverability
- Magne-Traction serrated edges ensure vice-like grip in any snow conditions
- Sintered 2000 base soaks up wax, slides fast, and stands up to abuse

Which Krypto or One Magtek???? What would...
Which Krypto or One Magtek???? What would you ride for groomer days with the family and powder days with the bros if you could only have one?
I would recomend the krypo
Easy rider! The shape of this board, combined with the softer flex (compared to the experience) makes it great for tight trees and soft landings. Compared to some of the big mountain boards that require work and precision, this board lets you relax and is still there when you need it. Magne-tractions gives you the extra grip and edge hold without making you crank on the egdes. Amptek makes turn initiation effortless, giving this board a the unique abilty to be a big mountain rider with street smarts. This is like the AWD sports car of snowboards.
This was an easy pick for me. My go to board is the Rossignol Experience. Just look at some video of Xavier Delerue, and it's apparent that this might not be the best board for you're average snowboarder. For the last few years there hasn't been much of a middle ground, but no longer is this the case. With the Krypto you get brilliant shape of the Experience with a milder flex, more suited for mellower, less "balls to the Wall" terrain. This being said, the Krypto still has all the great tech that Rossignol crams into the Experience model. All mountain Amptek keeps the nose out of the snow as you cruise through the trees after a 3 foot dump, while the Magne-Traction edges keep you poor east coasters from washing out as you make wide carves down a big icy run. So for someone not going quite as "hard in the paint" as Xavier, or perhaps on the lighter side and wanting a big mountain shape thats a bit easier to move around, there is finally a board built just for you. Pick yourself up a Krypto and take on the mountain!
this board is the boss! it is a stiff rider and cruises on all mountain terrain. this board turns a bad snow day into a good one, great turning ability. I love having this thing strapped to me!
bomber! this board really holds up in sketchy snow, but is surprisingly easy to turn. stiff and snappy, will be my all-mountain board of choice this year. anyone looking to ride burly terrain fast and still have freestyle options should get after this board!
This board is Umazing!
I was able to try this board in the short length last Spring, it is really easy to ride and can handle speed and turns like no other board out there. Took me a day or 2 to get used to, but it is like a missile with Magna-traction. Highly recommend it!!
this board is sick! I have always looked for a board that I can tear it up with in the park after a snowless week and then as soon as we have a snowday be able to shred just as well in deep pow, I have finally found it!
