2014 Rossignol Templar Snowboard Review
The 2014 Rossignol Templar snowboard introduces the 5 point Mag-traction system for Rossignol Snowboards. It’s a fun all-mtn board oriented to pow and groomers, but we had the most fun on it in the trees. It was reminiscent of the Burton Malolo, but with more dampening. As Paden said, “The board’s flex was borderline stiff, but you could still play and have fun.”
Even though it’s not designed for it we managed to take the Rossignol Templar through a few jump lines. We found it was great on jumps and landings, because of its stability and predictable turning. Maybe the Radcut played a part in that. (See manufacturer video for the explanation of the Radcut.)
All in all the 2014 Templar great in the trees, could handle deep snow, and was still playful all-mtn.

The award-winning TEMPLAR MAGTEK is a toned-down version of the quiver-killing, One MagTek. AmpTek All-Mountain combines traditional camber between the inserts with moderate tip and tail rocker for increased power, stability and float. Rossi's exclusive Magne- Traction 5S features 50% smaller Mag bumps for total edge control with a more forgiving feel. Combined with new RadCut technology and a directional flex, the Templar flows seamlessly edge-to-edge for super playful and accessible all-mountain performance.
