The all-new Kashmir is Rome's latest offering for flat-cambered, ride-everything fun. A true twin shape and flex pattern that is equally at home pressing in the park, darting through ancient forests or sneaking in a few laps after work. The Contact Camber profile combined with the FiveGnar Sidecut brings snap and pop, but also rounds things out with a mellow torsional flex perfect for all-terrain riding.
This board is designed for snowboarders who don't want to be limited. You want to ride everywhere and everything without any compromise? Then this is your board.
The perfectly symmetrical True Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. The FiveGnar Sidecut is a sidecut with five different zones to add a lively, responsive feel to boards with a flat camber profile.
The Contact Camber profile is 100% flat through the running length. No rocker, no camber and no early rise in tip or tail. This profile gives the board its all-terrain capabilities, the flat section provides stability on firm snow, is forgiving in the park and provides float in the powder.
The medium/stiff flex provides you with a lively board that allows you to stay in control at all speeds and pop over everything.
HotRods are at the core of almost every board Rome makes. They start with thin, hollow tubes of carbon, bamboo or glass and then insert them into milled channels in the core of the boards. These are arranged in different patterns and configurations all designed for specific riding situations and levels of responsiveness. Targeted flex and pop through custom-tailored HotRod placement and design. In many boards, Rome just wants to add a nice hit of ollie pop without making the board stiff at all when it twists. With a Bamboo Single Barrel in the centerline, they get this boost of power and leave the rest of the board feeling smooth and playful. The Pop Core Matrix features dual zones of ultra-lightweight wood converge with a body of snappy, responsive poplar for a buttery yet high-powered flex. The StraightBiax Carbon laminate takes the freestyle-oriented flex of 90-degree biaxial fibres and adds in longitudinal carbon strips to increase ollie power without any unwanted overall stiffness. The Impact Base is perfect for park riding and street spots. A stronger extruded compound helps to fight against the abuse of rails and boxes.
Rome SDS lives and breathes snowboarding and has done so since day one. Seeking to reestablish the true roots of snowboarding, Rome kicked off production is 2001. Their goal was to create a brand that "lives the values of snowboarding and innovates products that increase the one thing that matters most in snowboarding: fun." They have overshot their goal by miles, and as true snowboarders at heart, we are stoked to have them as a part of our team.
