Rossignol XV Sushi LF 2019
The 2019 Rossignol Sushi is much like its namesake. It's made for Japan, hand crafted with care, thrives on the fresh stuff and is always a good choice. Made with Rossignols Amptek Elite rocker and featuring a directional flex, the Sushi is specially made for maximum performance in powder, but also carves up the groomers like a chef slicing up todays fresh catch. The Sushi in powder is like a fish in water, but thanks to the throwback fish shape you'll never sink beneath the surface. Featuring ABS, TPU, and Rossignol Lite Frame technology (hold it up to the light and you'll see), the Sushi will ride smoother, stronger, and longer.
Board Type: Powder
Camber Type: Amptek Elite Rocker
Three patented blends of rocker and camber, each tailored to a specific riding style and intensity level. Featuring stiff extremities and a softer waist, Amptek Elite Rocker is composed of 60-100% camber with an applicable percentage of rocker at the extremities, offering explosive edge grip, pop, and stability.
Flex: 6/10 (1 = soft / 10 = stiff)
The reverse directional flex is stiff under the front foot for increased power and control then progressively softens through the waist and rear foot for confident stability and nimble manoeuvrability.
This board has a larger nose and tapered tail for premium performance and float going forwards.
Core: Wood 5620 + Lite Frame Technology
Rossignols standard wood core features a single type of wood vertically laminated to give you durability and comfort without breaking the bank.
Rossignols industry-first, visible breakthrough innovation, Lite Frame core technology integrates a urethane strip around the entire perimeter of the board, delivering full-length shock absorption for enhanced manoeuvrability, playfulness and ultra-smooth ride control.
Base: Sintered 4400
A fast and durable base that will always perform if you keep it waxed.
Radcut Sidecut - Radcut turn technology fuses a traditional sidecut between the inserts with reverse sidecuts toward the tip and tail so as speeds and edge angles increase, more sidecut is engaged for powerful full-length edge grip. At lower speeds and edge angles the sidecut is less engaged for more manoeuvrability and ease-of-use.
6 x 2 Insert Pattern - More inserts means more adjustment possibilities.
TPU - Combining high tensile strength and very good low-temperature flexibility, TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) absorbs vibrations and allows greater response under pressure.
ABS - Built into sidewalls, ABS provides enhanced durability while keeping the core safe from moisture.
Fiberglass - Fiberglass offers more elasticity than carbon and comes in multiple weights and weavings, making it Rossignols first choice for customised flex and torsional resistance.
