Rome Lo-Fi Rocker : Good Wood 2015 Reviews
Women’s All-Mountain Snowboards
Crafted for the lady that likes it all, the Lo-Fi Rocker is a staple in Rome’s line that’s solid on jumps, floaty in pow, and charges carves. The Freepop Rocker gives it a flat profile underfoot with rocker in the nose and tail for added butter-ability and a surfy feel in the fluff. The true twin shape makes it fun to go both ways, and with a glass rod in the core, its a poppy, ollie machine. You know what Instagram filter to use with this one.

“She’s a pretty frigging solid toy to play with all over the mountain. What blows me away is how poppy this babe is. She carves hard and charges chunder. A little stiff in the nose, but really no complaints—it’s a great all-mountain shredder.”
Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test Presented by THE-HOUSE.com
How do you pick the board that rides the way you want from the thousands of options out there? The answer: with the Good Wood 2015 Snowboard Test results. This year our 18 testers spent eight days hammering 400 boards through the park and pistes of Winter Park, Colorado. Each of these testers rides a little differently from one another, so there’s something to be said when a board stokes out all who tried it. With the scores tallied for the 16th annual Good Wood, we present the best performing all-mountain and park boards of the year.
How The Boards Are Scored
Shortly after burning some laps on each board, our test crew inputs scores for 18 characteristics that measure the ride on a sliding scale. The park and all-mountain scorecards each have different criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each snowboard. We don’t cut the boards open and examine the details, but the crew often does break a deck or three. Once the winners are calculated, the testers are long gone, and the cardboard dust has settled from shipping, we package the tester feedback and send it to the brands involved, which they can use to help make better boards.
