An all-mountain binding that understands your addiction, the Vice combines lightness, flexibility and customization for riders who like their power transmission to be super smooth. Backed with the new Asym Vice Highback, this new model lets you tweak grabs yet still have the power and pop to rip Euro-carves. Armed with PivotMount Technology, the Vice gives multiple strap positions to customise how responsive you want the binding to be.
The Asym Vice Highback features a light combination of flexibility and response through coring and Rome's signature spine of lateral support. The full highback rotation lets you put your power where you want it. With a range of 0 to 24 degrees, you can align your highback with the heel edge - this delivers direct powers on heel sides.
With the V-Rod Ultralight Baseplate, Rome maintains a powerful connection between your big toe and the lateral side of your heel, while at the same time lifting the other two corners and increasing SubBase dampening materials. With this construction, Rome delivers proper flex to different areas of the binding: Edge-to-Edge Power from the "rod" of edge to edge contact, Flow and Tweak from the raised baseplate corners and added dampening materials, and minimal baseplate contact to board for more natural board flex.
The Contour Boss 2.0 Ankle Strap is made of a temperature resistant material in a lower profile construction, for a perfect mid-range flex. The ConformGrip 2.0 Toe Strap maximises the use of high-friction over-molded material to stretch and lock into place over the toe of your boot. The result is more foot control with less pressure, for maximum comfort. Moving where your ankle strap seats on your ankle is super easy thanks to the PivotMount Technology: just loosen a screw and snap the PivotMount's arm into different positions. You can run your strap in the LOW position for maximum tweak, in the MID position for a balance of power and freedom (default setting) or in the HIGH position for driving max power to your toeside edge.
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.
