For 2017-18 Rome has added newly designed boards, boots and bindings to their stacked snowboard product offering. They’re bringing some heavy hitting all-mountain boards, one with a modern take on positive camber. For boots and bindings, their focus is on increasing comfort and customization. On the board front, meet two new all-mountain freestyle boards, The National and Marshal, along with the ride-it-all Blackjack and ladies’ Kashmir crusher, too. Regarding boots, they’ve created a fully redesigned Libertine SRT, with a lace-less liner, backed by a Boa, traditional lace and power strap outer shell. In the binding world, they’ve trickled down some tech from the keystone Katana into some other bindings, including PivotMount strap bracket to better adjust your straps to your boots and riding style. Rome’s ethos has always been buried in snow. With a passionate team of riders and employees that rip, these designs come tested and backed for next season.
Look out for this product to drop in the Fall, available in shops and on RomeSnowboards.com.
