The Sawtooth slashes into the collection with a taste for freeriding with style, quickness, and speed. Whether it snowed last night or hasn’t in two weeks, the Sawtooth uses the Free-The-Ride Camber technology to lay down deep slashes and fully railed out turns. The 90/90 carbon hybrid laminate teams up with bamboo HotRods to power the performance.
This Snowboard wants to ride powder or carving. The shape and profile of the board make it perfect for fast runs in every terrain.
Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition.
Free-the-Ride Camber begins with positive camber in the board’s tail, transitioning into a flat camber section beneath the rider’s front foot and ending in a rockered nose for maximum float. The end product of this blend is an ultra-agile turning machine with a buoyant nose for powder and an appetite for groomers and choppy conditions. The rockered nose lets you float and rip through the deeper snow while the flat camber under your front foot blends in a reassuring amount of stability and response. The positive cambered tail rounds it all out by providing the snap and slash power that all-mountain riding needs.
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. At the 90/90 Carbon Hybrid Laminate, Rome integrates thin bundles of carbon into a biaxial glass on top and biaxial layer on the bottom. The workhorse of base materials, the strong and absorbent SinterTrue Base is the first level of speed generating technology. It provides a healthy dose of speed for bombing groomers, lapping park or beating your friends to your favourite stash.
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.
