The Blur is the result of years of careful camber and shape calibrations, all revolving around the unrelenting desire for all-mountain precision and speed. From first chair burners to steep drops and bottomless trees, this board has the power and response to throw clouds and rip turns no matter the snow conditions. Go fast, take chances and ride everything in your path.
Directional - for those all-mountain and powder riders with a strong freeride perspective, the directional shape has a nose that is longer than the tail and a flex pattern with more stiffness in the tail.
Fusion Camber: positive camber though most of the running length and a small amount of rocker that starts just before the end of the running length. When loaded with rider energy, the contact points "roll back" giving the tip and tail a small amount of added rise. The design of the Fusion Camber has the pop and response of positive camber to define its primary feel, based on the positive camber through most of the running length. The small amount of rocker in the tip and tail create a smoother feel and added rise in powder.
This board feature the AirPop Core Matrix: starting with the responsive "pop" of poplar laminates, Rome integrates five zones of low-density, ultra light wood to reduce weight. Then they add air channels to make it even lighter. The 45/90 Carbon Hybrid Laminate drives an all-mountain freestyle feel by combining the high response of 45-degree fibres with the 90-degree fibres that let riders feel and finesse the terrain.
The Blur also features the TurboRod Technology, in which Rome mills channels in targeted areas of the core and place a sleeve inside the channel. Then they insert a thin rod of carbon inside the sleeve and anchor the carbon rod at the end of the channel, closest to the midpoint of the board. This allows the other end of the carbon to flex independently of the sleeve and load up more energy - when the storage of energy is released, it increases power and pop for the board. Exclusive for this board, the Carbon Dual Arc pattern along the edges adds tons of extra twisting (torsional) power into the board, for super response edge to edge and explosive power into pow slashes and ollies.
Speed matters, whether you want to glide smoothly through powder or whether you want to make sure you clear the knuckle. That's why the Blur features the SinterSpeed Base, the base that ensures you get to the line first and you land in the sweet spot.
Basalt Impact Plates
When landing bigger drops to flatish landings or when cranking a ton of heelside power into your board, your bindings can put a lot of force on the core of your board. To help disperse the energy and prevent denting of the core, Rome lays in thin Basalt Impact Plates to reduce core compression by over 2x.

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.
