Definition: Magnetraction is the trade name for a ski and snowboard design that uses a "wavy," or serrated edge to increase edge grip on ice or firm snow conditions. Unlike traditional board designs that use a straight edge, the waves on a magnetraction board contribute to multiple points of contact when the board is put up on edge. Currently Libtech and Rossignol offer magnetraction snowboards, and Libtech also offers a limited run of skis featuring the edge design as well.
