Three years ago if somebody told you that you could ride park, pipe, piste and poder on one snowboard you would have probably laughed in their face. Now it’s completely possible and the One Magtek is one of the best at it. The One is an all-mountain directional twin with Rossignol’s All-Mountain Amptek profile and Magne-Traction edges that literally works on any terrain you can throw it at.
The only board to have if you can only have One. AmpTek All-Mountain camber gives you pop, stability and floatation, and Magne-Traction sidecut turns ice into powder. From pipe to pow to anything else mother nature can dish out, the One MagTek always makes you feel like you’ve got the perfect board for any terrain.

Last year the Rossi One Mag got a makeover; Rossignol added their Amptek profile and changed the name to the One Magtek. This made the board the perfect all-mountain slayer; at home in the park, floaty in the pow and fast, stable and responsive when speeding down icy groomers. This year Rossignol haven’t tampered with last years’ board too much; they’ve changed the graphics and to be honest that’s about it!
In my opinion the board felt very similar to last years model and although it had only been a year since I last strapped on the One Magtek I found myself surprised at how playful and versatile the One Magtek is. Despite the terrible light and snow conditions I enjoyed riding it on all the obstacles in the park, even the rails and boxes, but it performed especially well in a ridiculously slushy Kaunertal Superpipe.
Rossignol market the One Magtek as the board to buy if you only want to buy one board…..one board to rule them all! I’ve got to say I completely agree with this summary. Even if you’re a park monkey looking for something with a little more stiffness to ride the pipe or bigger kickers then don’t be put-off by the directional twin shape or brand name because I guarantee you’ll love this board. Perhaps more appropriately; if you’re looking for a board that you can take away with you for a few weeks a year and ride any resort or any indoor slope then the One Magtek gives you the versatility to do just that. You don’t have to be an expert to ride this board; even first timers would feel comfortable on the One Magtek, no matter how many seasons or holidays you spend in the mountains you won’t outgrow it, with relation to your ability!
The best value high-end board on the market
Surprisingly easy to jib and press
Stable and responsive
This years graphics aren’t as good as last years.
