Rossignol Juggernaut 2022 Review by The Good Ride

Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Great Pop, Great Grip, fun to carve regular and switch.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Technical/Catchy. Not good for setting it back in powder.

Summary

The Rossignol Juggernaut has very technical/catchy but also very poppy and fun to carve aggressive mountain freestyle feel that is fun in all but powder.

How It Was Tested

Every day I rode this I also compared it to the Jibsaw 157. I also compared it on one day to the Rossignol Resurgence, Revenant and One.

Approximate Weight

The Rossignol Juggernaut felt normal on the border of being light but its far from an ultralight kinda ride. (We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)

Sizing

The 155 Rossignol Juggernaut  was just right for me. I could for sure ride this one size up but I like the feel of the 155 better. One thing to reference is there is a bump in the middle of the sidecut so it makes the waist seem wider than it is. If you look at the nose/tail and the width over the inserts you can see it is narrower than the waist would lead you to believe.

Here are some ideal US boot sizes for the Juggernaut. You can of course go bigger or smaller but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
152: 8-8.5
155: 8.5-9
158: 9-9.5
158w: 10-11
161w: 10.5-11.5

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

juggernaut camber

 

 

 

The Rossignol Juggernaut is a true twin so it rides really well when weighted centered but you can also drive hard on the front or back foot when turning.

You have a lot of camber going on. I think they call it 80/20 and it feels almost like full camber. It’s not easy to skid a turn compared to their other profiles but its still easier than camber. You get a lot of pop though and it still tracks really well in all conditions.

Flex Personality

The Rossignol Juggernaut is pretty stiff for a twin but somehow the tip/tail make it easier to butter than you would think from flexing it indoors. There is really good pop. It isn’t mind blowing super poppy pop like the full camber Burton Custom but its really good. Coming off the Rossignol One, Resurgence and Revenant it felt night and day.

Uneven Snow

In all conditions I rode, the Rossignol Juggernaut did really well. I didn’t get that messy end of the day snow but I think it should do just as well there as it did with hard micro-bumpy snow.

Speed

So the base doesn’t have a lot of glide but it has good glide if well waxed. The Rossignol Juggernaut is pretty stiff and it can go pretty fast if you point it without falling apart.

Edge Hold

The Rossignol Juggernaut has edge hold similar to the 5S tech on the One. There is one pronounced bump in the middle and then 4 other subtle bumps throughout the rest of the board. This is very competent in hard to icy snow but doesn’t have that really strong grip like the Jibsaw or even the Resurgence or Revenant. It doesn’t grab much in softer snow though and I really like this grip in most conditions I ride.

Turning Experience/Carving

The Rossignol Juggernaut can turn pretty quickly and when you get it on edge you can make all kinds of radius turns without it fighting back. There is a very satisfying spring out of the turn and I had almost as much fun carving this as the XV. They are night and day different boards but they both have a very satisfying turn to them. Unlike the back footed XV, you can weight your turns however you please and it will spring hard out of the turn.

Powder

No thanks. Mostly camber twins that you can’t set back much aren’t fun for me in powder. This is for old school camber riders that know how to keep their speed in powder.

Switch/Pipe/Jumps

So good either way switch. Such a fun pipe board. Technical but fun. Same with Jumps. This tracks well into jumps and springs out of them. Nick liked this a lot here. Jibs…not ideal.

Conclusion

So for me, I really enjoyed the Rossignol Juggernaut. I liked the more forgiving Jibsaw a little better but I could easily have a beautiful life with this in the quiver. I wish Rossignol used this camber profile in one of their All Mountain boards like the One, Revenant or Resurgence.
