Rome Snowboards 2012-2013

02 May, 2012


From urban jib sticks to backcountry powder machines, Rome Snowboards continues to revolutionize their collection year after year with boards that suit all riders.  For 2013, Rome continues to add to the collection most noticeably with the new Double Agent and Powder Room splitboards, for park destroyers the new Hammerhead.

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.
