2014 Rossignol Retox Snowboard Review
The 2014 Rossignol Retox snowboard takes a page from the Burton Nug and has an elongated effective edge for greater stability. But unlike the Nug, which you ride 10cm shorter, the Retox you only ride 3-6cm shorter. The moment you take your first turn on the Rossi Retox you realize how playful it is. Riding the shorter board lowers swing weight making spins in effortless.
Also the AmpTek Freestyle Rocker which has 60% camber and 40% rocker makes catch box and rail spins. While the pop wasn’t the best it was plenty adequate, especially when you realize that your on such a small snowboard.
Lastly, we suggest the Retox to every level of rider. If it’s your first day or your 20th year snowboarding it will Rossignol Retox is ready to party!

2014 Rossignol Retox Snowboard Manufacturer Overview Video:
The RETOX AMPTEK is a core, true-twin jib board built for career-ending quad-kinks and urban bomb drops. AmpTek Freestyle combines traditional camber for explosive pop and stability, with slight tip and tail rocker, keeping the Retox playfully loose for effortless press-ability. “Built for the true rail junky,” said Transworld Snowboarding, with ultra-blunt tips lightening swing weight for easy spins and a symmetrical freestyle flex that locks onto rails, all that’s left to do is stomp it.
