Rome Snowboards 2008-2009
03 Feb, 2008
I’m a huge Rome fan. In fact looking through the stuff I own…a lot of it is Rome. I own two pairs of Rome Madisons plus numerous soft goods from Rome.
Every year at SIA…I look forward to seeing what Rome has in store, whether it’s new boards, boots, bindings or outerwear. Definitely one of my favorite companies to support.
This year Rome is adding 4 new boards to the line up: Riff (Wide version of the Mod), Minishred, lo-fi, and Jett. I was stoked to see the minishred a kid snowboard and the name…that’s what I call the kids on the hill! The two new womens models are definitely great to add to the mix. The lo-fi being a new womens true twin that can be rode in the park or in backcountry and the Jett being a entry level womens board to progress with.
I have rode the 08-09 Rome Blue and reviewed it here.

Rome Flag, Anthem and Notch
Notch this year added the 162cm to the size range and 172cm swallowtail which looks rad!
The 1/1 sign that you see shows that each board will be one of one. Every agent out of the factory has hand-painted elements so each one will be unique, no two exactly alike. The 1/1 is also featured on bindings like the Targa’s and 390’s.
I really like this years graphics (maybe it’s cause I’m one of few girls who likes strip clubs). The base is like a sign saying “Live Nude Girls” and the photo of the girl on the tops sheet is scratch-off.
You can see the Vamp in black with the dual boa system.
