A new shape constructed for exploring new zones, stomping new tricks and expanding your snowboard horizons. Flat cambered for the edge hold and float you crave, while its flex pattern provides stability for both deep landings and high speeds. With enough tech under the hood to make an IT department jealous, the Marshal is the new go-to for all-terrain agility.
All-Mountain Freestyle - You want to have fun on the whole mountain? This board does everything with ease, from kickers and rails in the park to side hits on the piste or powder runs and fast turns.
The shape of the Marshal is Directional Twin. From contact point to contact point (100 % of the running length), this board is twin - the shape and core profile in the front part of the board is the same as the rear part of the board. The non-twin portion comes when the nose and tail start to rise. In this shape, the distance from the front contact point to the tip of the nose is slightly longer than the distance from the rear contact point to the tip of the tail. This difference allows for a bit of extra float in powder and more control.
The Marshal features Rome's Contact Camber, which has a flat camber throughout the entire running length of the board. For many riders, the Contact Camber is the best of both worlds with a lot of the pop that riders like in positive camber and a lot of the playfulness that riders like in rocker shapes. Then Rome added "pop" to this versatile feel by complementing the camber line with their new five-zone sidecut, the FiveGnar Sidecut. To add a lively, responsive feel to flat camber boards, Rome designed this complimentary sidecut that features two different sidecut radii used in five distinct zones of the board. The zones under the front and back feet are the same, while the areas in the nose, tail, and middle of the board are all the same tighter radius sidecut. All zones are blended into each other to make one smooth arc that is not interrupted by bumps. With a tighter radius in the nose, tail, and midsection, the board engages more actively, feels tighter in the middle of a turn and finishes the turn with more pop.
The SuperPop Core Matrix of the Marshal is lightweight and super responsive. It features poplar for power and three zones of low-density wood for lightness. The 45/90 Hybrid Laminate drives an all-mountain freestyle feeling by combining the high response of 45-degree fibers with the 90-degree fibers that let riders feel and finesse the terrain. This board comes with SinterSpeed Base, a fast sintered base that ensures you get to the line first and you land in the sweet spot.
The National also features Rome's new SinterStrong Sidewalls, constructed with sintered base material. With greater strength through greater elasticity, these sidewalls increase durability for those times that you unintentionally hit a rock or intentionally land on a rail.
TurboRods Carbon Single Barrel
In the TurboRod Technology, Rome mill 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 mid-point 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. In this board, a single barrel of carbon delivers more pop in the centreline of the board without any unwanted torsional power to increase freeride edge hold.

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.
