  • Rome's The Shank 2013 Snowboard

    Posted on January 20, 2012 by wiredsport

    Rome is debuting The Shank 2013 snowboard this coming year and man is it loaded with new tech. That means it's time for an Innovation Watch. This board will keep you killing the park and streets all day and night. Highlighting Rome's new "No Hang Ups Rocker" design, this board is a scary fun new combination of flat rock with an odd twist on rockered contact points.

    Rome 2013 Shank Snowboard Profile:

    Riding Style: Park/Street

    Available Lengths: 145 cm and 153 cm

    Shape: True Twin

    Flex: Fairly Soft

    Featuring:

    Rome's No Hang Ups Rocker: flat rock profile with Rome's new 3D Camber Profiling. This technology allows for a flat base running through the center of the board in the shape of a large diamond. Then the edges are slowly rolled up starting at the inserts and progressing all the way to the nose/tail of the board. This allows for the board to keep a flat camber while slightly elevating the nose and tail of the board as well as the contact points. What this means: this board has a smooth skate like feel but keeps an effective edge, running length and pop that you traditionally could not find in a rockered board.

    Carbon Single Barrel HotRods: A light single rod of carbon in the nose and tail of the board that runs down the center. This rod provides pre-loaded power for super pop on ollies without creating any torsional stiffness. High pop with easy edge transition, yes please!

     

    QuickRip Sidecut: Rome's patented design, this board offers a midsection sidecut and another sidecut in the tip and tail of the board. At slow speeds only the center sidecut is initiated  allowing the board to "ride short", then at high speeds while carving the outer sidecut makes contact "increasing" the length of the board allowing for a stable smooth ride while bombing down the hill.

    Summary: With a SinterTrue base, HotRods in the noise and tail, soft flex and Rome's No Hang Ups Rocker, this board will have you killing the parks and the streets all day long. The 3D Camber Profiling ensures your ride will always be catch free and smooth. And with this board featuring a dialed in tranny finder and basalt impact plates, you will not find a more complete park board.

  • Rome's 3 Dimensional Snowboard Deck

    Posted on January 14, 2012 by wiredsport

    Rome 3D Snowboard Deck: This round of Innovation Watch is looking at what appears to be an innovation taking place in multiple companies, 3 dimensional decks. This model is the 2013 deck from Rome. Essentially what this is is a snowboard with a flat center in the tip and tail with the edges rolled up. This lifts up the contact points very slightly to allow for that loose feel while still keeping a traditionally cambered board (Rome is also going to be offering this on their flat rocker as well in 2013). No longer do you have to ride a reverse camber board to get the loose feel and catch free riding that has become so popular. You can kind of see the technology in the picture if you focus on the nose of the board. You can see two lines that run on each side of the Rome logo coming to a point towards the nose of the board. The center part between those lines is flat and those lines are where the board starts to curve up, elevating the contact points slightly.

  • Rome Targa Bindings

    Posted on January 12, 2012 by wiredsport

    Rome Targe 2013 Snowboard Binding: Time for an Innovation Watch on the 2013 version of the Rome Targa Bindings, a perennial favorite in the snowboard binding world. This year they are all about the cant. These bindings actually have three canting options in three different degrees including a pre-installed cant. Even their footbed is pumping out the cant sporting their motto "yes I cant" on the footbed. If puns aren't enough to make you like a binding how about one of the only bindings around that actually pays attention to the little things like your straps being in the way when you try and put your boot into the binding. Rome once again has rubber straps to pull the ankle strap out and away from the binding leaving nothing in your way to quickly throw your boot in and tighten the straps back down. Oh and of course they come with ankle strap inserts to adjust stiffness. The tech on these bindings just doesn't seem to stop. Lots of photos inside the blog, take a look!
