Rome Snowboards 2011-2012

16 May, 2011


Since the beginning, Rome has been redefining, reinventing and revolutionzing their collection year after year.  They’ve expanded their collection of snowboards to offer something to every type of rider.  From the urban jib sticks to the backcountry powder machines, each board serves a purpose.  For 2012, Rome introduces the whiteroom splitboard, reverb and reverb rocker for park to pow, factory rocker as a price point rocker.  Women get additional rocker with the detail rocker snowboard.

For board tech, there’s a whole range of styles depending on your personal preference:  No hang ups, jibpop, freepop, mtnpop, stay positive camber, hybrid ripit camber, hybrid fun camber, powder S camber.  Rome continues to offer rocker snowboards with quickrip sidecut.  It lets a board ride short at slow speeds by engaging the mid-section sidecut between the mid-board contact points and ride long at high speeds by engaging the full length sidecut where the mid-board contact points work to improve edge hold.  Rome continues with hotrod technology for a targeted, focused, lightweight pop and pressurepop technology for energy transmission from binding to board to snow.

    @ Andy,

    strange I was kinda thinking the same thing. Its still has that signature rome style but its getting really abstract and into geometric shapes much like burton graphics.
