Pros and Cons of the Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard

The Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard is the flagship board of Rossignol’s line of women’s snowboards for a reason.  The Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard will spoil you.  The board features multiple side-cuts which will provide you with extra grip which not only makes it easier to perform big, smooth turns, but the ride itself will be a lot smoother and more comfortable.  The sandwich construction used on the Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard will give your board extra strength and edge hole, and allows for very quick responses to be made.

The Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard is also one of the fastest women’s snowboards on the market thanks to the stone grind finishing used to reduce friction.  This deck will offer nice, even flexibility while being super strong and light, thanks to a wood core and being layered with Kevlar and carbon fibers.  There are also a number of different colors and graphic options to choose from, so you don’t have to worry about being forced to purchase something in pink like so many other women’s snowboards.

It should be noted that the Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard, while widely considered to be one of the best women’s snowboards on the market today, is not one of the women’s snowboards recommended for beginners.  Once you have settled on your style and have picked up basics, then the Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard may be right for you.  With a starting price between $450 and $500, if you are just starting out there are much more affordable options.

Extreme Sports Final Thoughts

There is a reason the Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard is so popular among female freestyle snowboards.  The Diva is one of the best women’s snowboards available on the market.  However, it can’t be stated enough that while there are several benefits novice riders can get from the Rossignol Diva Magtek Snowboard, it is not intended for beginning snowboarders, and you should become more advanced and develop your own style before diving in to the Diva.  Once you have gotten the basics down and know how you ride, you will love the Diva!
