Rossignol Resurgence 2022 Review by The Good Ride

Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Excellent Grip, Forgiving, Stable, Good Directional Float
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Not a lot of pop on an ollie or spring out of a turn.

Summary

The Rossignol Resurgence is that poppy or fun to carve but it grips super well, is forgiving, stable and has good directional float.

How It Was Tested

Every day I rode the Resurgence I rode the Revenant and One with the same boots and bindings. On one day I compared the Juggernaut and Jibsaw to it as well.

Approximate Weight

The Rossignol Resurgence is pretty normal weight wise which I like.

(We don’t put in the exact weight because with wood cores there is no consistency in a boards weight)

Sizing

Rossignol Resurgence Sizing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Rossignol Resurgence fit my specs listed above really well. I felt like it was made for people below size 10 and it handled my weight really well.

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.
153: 8-8.5
156: 8.5-9
159: 9-9.5

Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level

The Rossignol Resurgence is called directional by Rossi but it seems to be almost a directional twin. It feels very centered when on reference and you can weight your turns front footed, back footed or center weighted.

Rossignol Resurgence Camber

 

 

 

 

The camber profile is called 50% camber/50% Rocker but when layed down on the table it had the same camber profile as the One and Revenant. It feels stable one footing and flat basing. You can also easily skid a turn. It has a very consistent and forgiving feel underfoot in all conditions.

Flex Personality

There is a pretty medium overall flex with the Rossignol Resurgence but because of all that rocker before the nose/tail it is much easier to butter than you would think for the flex. When it comes to pop there just isn’t that much here. It took more work to ollie than most boards. I wish they did something with the construction to add some more pop to it.

Speed/Base Glide

The Rossignol Resurgence is pretty good at pushing past moderate mtn speed. It just isn’t a full on bomber either. The base got some base burn and it would need to be regularly waxed to keep it gliding well but it isn’t a super-fast base either.

Uneven Terrain

The Rossignol Resurgence is pretty good riding all day. It can handle hard micro bumpy snow without getting too cranky and did fine in all the conditions I rode it in. It seems like it would be good in softer messy snow as well like similar rossi boards that came before it.

Edge Hold

The 5S tech with the Rossignol Resurgance is pretty aggressive and it is almost there with the 7S tech of the Jibsaw grip wise. It can grab a little in softer snow but its something most can get used to.

Turning Experience/Carving

The overall turning experience is quick and on the turny side of balanced. You can make all kinds of turns. What I didn’t like was how little spring you felt out of the turn in comparison to the Jibsaw, Juggernaut, XV, YES Basic Uninc, and Jones Mountain Twin. The extra edge hold does allow the Rossignol Resurgence to carve in hard snow a lot better than some boards out there but in comparison to the boards above that is all the same.

Powder

I didn’t get the Rossignol Resurgence in powder but this shape reminds me of the Rossignol Taipan and Templar when it comes to set back on board and directional float in powder. Having 2.125” back from center of board at a 22.6” stance width really helps get that longer rockered nose up in deeper snow. If it’s anything like the old Taipan it will be really fun.

Switch/Pipe/Jumps

Very doable each way and feels almost like a directional Twin. I didn’t hit the park but loved doing old man turns in the pipe and it gripped really well there.

Conclusion

The Rossignol Resurgence is a very easy forgiving ride. I would personally like more pop on an ollie and more spring out of a turn. As it stands though, it is a pretty grippy, forgiving one board quiver.
