2009 Rossignol One-Magna Traction

By Chris

Board Model: Rossignol One-Mag

Board Size: 163

Age: 41

Riding Style: Freestyle/all mtn

I’m a little surprised to see that nobody has reviewed Rossi’s latest Magne-traction boards. This is the latest technology to hit snowboards and I can tell you it gives you awesome control in even the crappiest conditions. I’ve always been a big fan of Burton boards and when I went out to purchase a new board for the 08-09 season I was introduced to Rossi’s magne-traction technology. Living in Idaho we get tons of light fluffy powder here so I was rather hesitant to purchase a board that’s made for riding ice and hard crummy conditions. This board works great in all conditions. I’ve been riding light fluffy powder all season until last weekend. It warmed up enough to melt much of our base and re-freeze that evening. The next day I took my Rossi One-Mag out and absolutely shredded the mtn. The side cut on this board is like a serrated knife and cuts through the crude like nothing I’ve ever ridden. I had so much control I thought I was riding on fresh powder. If you get a chance try one out or you’re in the market for a new board try out Rossi’s Magne-Traction, you won’t be dissapointed!

    Been waiting to try one of these out. Hopefully I can get a demo next season.

    P.S. It’s not Magnetraction isn’t Rossi’s technology. It’s Mervin who makes the Lib-tech, Gnu and Roxy line of boards. They licensed it from Mervin. That might sound a bit loopy since Mervin and Rossignol were both owned by Quiksilver at one point. Quiksilver sold Rossi but still owns Mervin.

    I just purchased a One Mag this past season and absolutely love it! i live out in the Pac NW where Mervin designed the Magne Traction technology. I gotta say, the stuff really works!

    @dave: take the cheaper you find or the one that suit your eye!
    The JDUB has not changed (beside graphics) since its introduction in the 2007-2008 season so you basically have the option between 3 diferent graphics and different prices…

    Bout to go pick the same board up I will give some feedback after i take it for a run but you are right not many reviews but the few i have read (aside from the rossi bashers) have been very positive.

    I picked up a 2010 OneMag 159 about 2 weeks ago, and have been on it 4 days. I’m a 5’10, 190, 5 year rider, and live in Minnesota. We’re on about 98% man made. I paired the the board with K2 Auto’s. This is lightest combo I have ever ridden. I’m a believer – the magnetraction lives up to the hype. The response is dead on, and it grips better than any other board I have ever ridden. It’s not a high end board, with all the bells and whistles, but extremely solid at its price point. Unless you’re looking top of the line, you won;t do wrong with a OneMag.

    I just rented the One Mag 163 for 4 days in Japan. I am about160lbs(74Kg) and 181cm tall. This board blew my mind, I have never had so much fun. Whether I was floating on powder or running across Ice this board was incredibly fast and deadly accurate to turn and control. Anyone want to buy my 157 Option board?

    I also bought the OneMag earlier this year. Have ridden it one full day, on East Coast crud/ice/chop with old Burton Freestyles.

    And wow–it handled great. Never fell once–even on icy, very steep slopes (double blacks) at high speeds. Didn’t take it in the park because I don’t do park. You find yourself thinking that maybe the MTX isn’t doing anything–and then you hit an icy bump and are shocked to find yourself still upright. So I love the board.

    I just got the rossy experence 2011 and maybe cause the mag one is less stiff but the experience seems loose in the tail at low speeds. It feels like the magna traction takes up all the grip leaving none for the tail. This does make the board super easy to turn being a 163cm for me. Its like all the traction starts in the nose and gets to be less and less towards the back of the board. but at high speed the board grips the snow and the edge is there when you need it most
