Park, trees, powder, and playing around on everything else. Full rocker shape, and med/soft flex makes this board great for playful groomer riding to park. It can handle the whole resort, and be forgiving when your off your game a little, and performs well in powder as well. Solid board for under $400!

Great all-around snowboard that will be stable and not too catchy, and the soft flex will give a lot of manueverability and playfulness. The camber underfoot on this snowboard makes it a better carver and more stable at speed than full rocker snowboards.

Rome Warden Snowboard · 2021

Camber underfoot and rocker out in the tip and tail, this is a slightly directional shredder that will sling out of groomer carves with power. Highly versatile directional twin designed for the hard charger yet playful enough for buttering and popping off side hits!

Park laps, groomers, side hits, you name it, the Warden can rip it. Killer mid-flex all-mountain rig from Rome, this one gives you a rocker at the tips and camber in between the inserts providing tons of response when you need it, but can keep things mellow if you so desire. Combined with a directional twin shape you get tons of stability while still being able to approach stuff switch.

All-mountain cruising, fun slashing on the groomers. It's a very versatile platform with deep side cuts to make those long carves. Coupled with awesome edge hold, this is a dynamic board that will have you sailing down the runs.

A true all mountain twin that can handle all areas of the mountain with ease!! Parabolic camber keeps you locked in on the carves, and gives you nice pop as well! Equally as comfortable in the park as it is in the pow and on the steeps!

This is a fully rockered deck that will be quite noodly and playful. This means that the edges curve away from the snow instead of towards it, so turn initiation is easier and catch free. If you like to get buttery and and surfy, this is the deck for you!

  • A perfect twin park-preferring utility board that's still at home on the whole mountain.
  • Magne-Traction holds an edge when the snow gets hard or icy (think of a serrated edge knife).
  • C2 Rocker Camber Hybrid and a sustainable wood core will have plenty of pop for those ollies and side hits, while still being easy to turn edge-to-edge.
