Rossignol One 2022 Review by The Good Ride
Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Forgiving. Stable. Buttery. Damp for its flex. Great Edge Hold. Good riding centered for groomers and set back for pow.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Could use more spring on an Ollie and out of a turn.
The Rossignol One could use more pop for Ollies and turns but it is a very versatile, forgiving buttery ride with very competent edge hold.

How It Was Tested
Every day I rode the Rossignol One, I also tested it against the Rossignol Resurgence and Rossignol Revenant. On some days I brought out the Jones Mountain Twin and Yes Basic Uninc. On one day I also tested these against the Jibsaw and Juggernaut.
(We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)
So with the Rossignol One there is a bump center sidecut so treat the waist width as a few mm more narrow than you normally would. That being said the 156 feels a little better for my specs (listed above) than a board this size normally would. I could easily do the 159 but the 156 felt so good I didn’t feel the need to size up.
Here are some ideal US boot sizes for these boards. 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.
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
The Shape of the Rossignol One feels on the twinish side of directional. If you keep the weight between the bindings it has a pretty good feel and you can turn front footed or back footed and the ride doesn’t get that washy.
This mellow camber between the inserts makes the One LF feel very stable but not catchy and very forgiving. It has that same consistent personality in all conditions.
The flex is med/stiff throughout but the 60% rocker in the camber profile makes for a pretty easy board to butter compared to many boards that have a similar flex with more camber. I would like to see more pop as the Rossignol One just didn’t have a lot of spring on an ollie. I felt like I had to do more to make my small ollies a touch bigger.
So the base glide is pretty middle ground but the Rossignol One is more damp than you would think for it’s flex and all that rocker before the tip/tail. The Light Frame tech (a urethane like dampening system throughout the board) seems to do a pretty good job making the ride less chattery. This is a pretty good all conditions ride from hard micro bumpy groomers to soft messy snow as long as you slow down a bit.
The 5s traction bumps aren’t as pronounced or grippy as many other boards in the line but the grip still borders on being excellent but doesn’t grab as hard in softer snow. .
So you can get the Rossignol One to turn pretty quickly but it doesn’t feel super-fast. It has a very balanced sidecut that allows you to play around with all kind of turning radius’. When you get the edge committed to a carve it just doesn’t have the spring that I’d like for an all mountain board. Maybe it’s the 60% rocker in the camber profile, maybe its something else, but it just doesn’t have a really satisfying spring out of the turn. Is it fun? Yeah It was but it just didn’t pop out of a turn like the Jibsaw and Juggernaut. I was hoping that it would be more in line with those boards or even have some of the turning magic of the XV. All of the boards mentioned have more camber.
So I didn’t ride the Rossignol One in powder. There wasn’t enough snow during the time I had it. That being said I did ride the One LF and One Mag in powder. They had less of a setback on board than the One so I think this should fair a little better. With a set back of 2.125” back from center of board at a 22.4” stance width you can get pretty far back on board for an all mountain ride. That is more than the Jones Mountain twin and only a little less than the Yes Basic Uninc. Those are two very good all mountain rides in powder. Then you factor in all that rocker and you should have a pretty floaty ride.
Very doable either way and the Rossignol One is almost like a true twin. While it doesn’t spring into an ollie well, it does track well into small kickers. I love this board in pipe because I don’t need a lot of spring trying to drive hard wall to wall. I like good grip, easy control for quick turns and a forgiving feel so I had a good time making old man turns in the pipe.
So if the Rossignol One had more spring on an ollie and out of a turn this would be a favorite. However, as it stands it is a very forgiving, playful and versatile ride. It is very recommendable for intermediates committed to the sport or for advanced to expert riders that want a forgiving stable one board quiver.
