Rossignol ONE LF Snowboard · 2020
Super lightweight stiffer directional twin. The One LF will shred it all fast and hard. Has mellow Magne-Traction, super lightweight and poppy core and is just fun as hell. The stiffness will keep you feeling secure at any speed! The wide stance of the board will help keep larger feet from toe dragging as well.
Sick all mountain freestyle deck that can ride anywhere from park to peak. Stiffer flex with camber between the feet for pop and snap and quick edge to edge meets rocker in the nose and tail to help with turn initiation and float in powder. Has Magne-Traction as well.

Lib Tech Box Knife Snowboard · 2021
This thing is an East Coast resort all-mountain/freestyle killer. Stable enough to charge any terrain but playful enough for some presses and butters. Magnetraction will give you that edge hold on icy days which is huge out here. It’s got plenty of pop and is just as comfortable in the air as it is locking into a rail.

Steel sidewalls and poplar core gives you a mix of fun and play without sacrificing control. A slightly directional stance puts a little more board at the front so you can handle some of those deeper snow days at the resorts but still play around with switch riding.
