Rossignol Temptation 2012 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

The Rossignol Temptation finally stepped forward with Rossignol in 2012 with the addition of hybrid camber. Their mostly rocker hybrid camber and directional shape is a good board for people looking to ride the mountain more than the park.  We say this with a caveat because of the Temptation’s setback changes according to size.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

With every size increase, the Temptation’s set back increases.  It actually starts with no set back at a 139 and then increases to a -20 for the 153.  The bigger boards can ride set back and surfy while also being able to center the stance if you want to take a switch riding/freestyle approach to powder riding.

This is a stable fun groomer board and not a bad choice for anyone who wants to try everything but feels you most likely will end up riding mostly the mountain.

We aren’t the biggest fans of an extruded base but we can’t hate too much.  The drawback is they are slower but the good part is they are more sturdy and require less maintenance.

Despite the extruded base the Temptation still does a good job all over the mountain and offers the consistency you need when it comes to learning how to snowboard.  This will help you stay out of the rental shop and get you to the next level.
