Testers were wowed by Rossi's entire snowboard line this year, but the Krypto rose to the top. Both edges of this directional twin-shaped gun are rimmed with multi-radius sidecut, which allows for seven contact points instead of two, ensuring bear-trap grip on hard snow. It's been seven years since this tech launched, and testers are still raving about its edge-to-edge response, predictability, and strong hold on short- and long-radius turns. Camber between the bindings and a rockered tip and tail blended seamlessly for light-as-air float and snappy transitions. One tester summed it up: "Smooth switch riding, nice poppy feel on rollers, and great torsional flex between bindings. This all-mountain board can be taken out any day in any conditions." 'Nuff said.
