WARNING! THE MOST DANGEROUS BOARD IN SNOWBOARDING.
Top out the flex meter and press the shit out of everything—single bars, boxes, barrel bonks, and wall rides. This shape will open a new bag of tricks in the park and make you remix classic hits on your favorite stock runs. Turnin’ heads will be easy when you’re having the most fun on the mountain.
Freepop Rocker: A flat camber-and-rocker combo where the flat camber section extends 5 cm wider than the insert packs. The extended flat section gives versatile response and landing power in and out of the park, while the rocker in the nose and tail delivers equal doses of rail tricks and powder slashes.
Skatecore Profiling: Skatecore Profiling creates both the ollie feel of a skateboard and the turny feel of a pair of trucks. We do this by thinning the board between the feet and thickening the core under foot. We mill this technology into some of our cores to create a feel that is similar to the turning and ollie-feel of a skateboard. Thinner between the feet and thick sections that extend towards the nose and tail creates a twisty, maneuverable feel that still can pop and ollie and give you the necessary landing gear.
Quickrip Sidecut: Two additional mid-board contact points between off-set sidecuts for added grip at high speeds. Or, engage the inner contact points at slower speeds for a playful, shorter feeling board with control. QuickRip is a Rome signature technology for power when riding fast and extra fun when slowing things down. Two sidecuts with the same radius (arc) are off set with one between the feet and one in the nose and tail. Where they meet near your bindings are shaped Mid-Board Contact Points where the center sidecut transitions down to the nose/tail sidecut. The result is a board that can be ridden slow and loose between the Mid-Board Contact Points at your feet, and a board that can be ridden powerfully along the full running length. The Mid-Board Contact points become areas of added edge grip when the full running length is initiated. One board—rides short and rides long.
Butterout Transition Zones: We elongate and mellow the curve of the edges at the contact point. This creates a playful feel on the snow and lets you get greasy on rails. The modern incarnation of our Profiled Transition Zones from the early Rome years. To create a smoother feel when landing, spinning or buttering, we lengthen and mellow the transition of the contact points where your sidecut transitions into your nose and tail. A longer transition zone with a bigger radius means more freestyle fun.
- Pop Core Matrix-The bread-and-butter of our street-to-steeps board models. Smooth and fun for pressing out box tricks. Snappy and poppy for bombing a backcountry couloirs. Two zones of lightweight wood team up with a body of responsive poplar.
- StraightBiax Laminate-The laminate that optimizes smooth-flexing good times. For those riders who hang mainly in the park or who are just getting hooked on standing sideways, this laminate tunes the board for creativity and fun.
- Impact Base-Our extra high-density extruded compound is ideal for the rider who puts a beating on his board and doesn’t get around to waxing it very often. The high-density design holds up to damage from rails, boxes and stumps.
Shape: True Twin
Flex and Feel: Very Playfull
