The Mechanic is dialled for all-around good times on the mountain. Cruise turns. Find a line in the woods. Hit the same side hit every day. Take a lap, or ten, through the park. A single shot of pop-enhancing HotRods technology teams up with a flat rocker profile for the right blend of response and fun.
All-Mountain - This board delivers perfect performance on the whole mountain from groomers to the backcountry.
The perfectly symmetrical True Twin shape offers a balanced ride that’s equally versatile when ridden regular or switch. The idea behind QuickRip SideCut is to give you a board that rails turns at high speeds with a playful feeling at slower speeds. To do this, Rome uses two sidecuts with the same radius, one in the mid-section of the board and one in the nose and tail regions. The intersection of these two arcs is near the bindings and creates the Mid-Board Contact Points.
FreePop Rocker - A rockered nose and tail that meets a flat mid-body to create a responsive and fun all-terrain camber profile. The flat camber is stable and solid underfoot, while the rocker in the nose and tail add buttery playfulness.
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. The Glass Single Barrel tube adds a more dynamically poppy flex than flat glass fibres. The TTT Core Matrix is the classic 100% nose-to-tail wood core for pure snap and ollie power. Timeless tried and true, wood is good. The StraightBiax laminate is for riders who make the most out of any terrain. 90-degree fibres create a fun, playful flex perfect for cruising, lapping park or ripping bowls. The XTRD Base is strong, fast, easy to fix and simple. This is the standard for everyday riding and beyond, wax it, shred it and repeat.
Rome United Binding: Superlight, super smooth performance
Stripped down but never watered down, the United comes with all the pedigree and versatility of a Rome binding, but at a fraction of the cost. Light-weight, mid-flexing, highly adjustable and ready to ride whatever you put in front of them, the United can ride lines off summits, power turns on fresh groomers, and tweak out in the park.
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.
