Rome Snowboards 2010-2011

28 Jun, 2010


After all the years of Rome snowboards, the shred remains in their collection and is the constant devotion behind their products.  For 2011, their snowboards feature a variety of camber/rocker options for the assortment of riders that hit up the local mountains.

For camber, rome has positive camber, hybrid camber and powder S camber.  For reverse, Rome offers reverse mtnpop, reverse free and reverse jib.  In board construction rome offers boards with pop using their hotrod technology, pressurepop technology and powerbars technology.  Each with a focus of delivering a lively, snappy feel on the mountain with different pop regions.  Rome’s quickgrip delivers a sidecut technology that steps up freestyle playfulness and freeride precision in the same deck that provides extra grip for the mountain.

Just a note, not all the 2011 snowboards are shown in photos.

    I had a chance to demo that Artifact Rocker and I must say it is one of the funnest boards I’ve had the chance to ride. It feels so much like skating around the mountain.

  6. June 29, 2010

    Hi Shay and Others,
    Will like to know more about the 157 Agent Rocker 2011.
    Must be a good board with quick grip sitecut and so on… ?
    Will like to know if it could a good choice for an allround Big Mountain board : Carving (hardpack and Ice) and powder and fun board… to replace my Lib Tech Lando 160cm
    Will have difficulty to decide between: 157 Agent Rocker 2011, 156 BSOD 2011, 159 NS Raptor 2011, 157 Magic Banana Lib Tech 2011 or even 159 Bataleon Undisputed 2011
