Rossignol Taipan ($349)
New to the 2011 Rossi line, this deck was built as an all-conditions, all-abilities, do-it-all board. Featuring a softer, cambered waist and stiffer, rockered tips, it holds steady at high speeds while staying nimble for tight tricks and trees. It has a twin shape with a setback stance for all-mountian charging, but you can easily center yourself on it and lap it through the park.
“Such a fun board! Perfect flex for all-mountain radness! Very stable at high speeds, yet easy to throw around in tight trees.”
