Product Info

The collection of features on this binding reads like a greatest hits album. The Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings offer power, pop and a long list of tech niceties to make your riding day better. If these bindings get any more advanced, they'll probably be confiscated and classified by the CIA; so get them while you still can!

Product Details

Flex

A stiff flexing binding that can be playful yet powerful, these bindings can be adjusted to give you the flex you want.

Flex Rating: 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)Softer snowboard bindings are comfortable and forgiving.

Baseplate

V-Rod BaseplateA V-shaped baseplate with a "rod" of edge-to-edge contact limits the binding's footprint on the board, which delivers three things: natural board flex, greater binding flexibility side-to-side, and full power from to toe to heel. You get the perfect blend of flex with pop.

SubBase V-PadPartnered with the V-Rod baseplate, the 3D profile of the EVA and rubber sub-base pad fills the lifted corners of the baseplate for the smoothest side-to-side flex.

Straps

PF Adjust Ankle StrapUltimate customization with three different EVA insterts: supportive, very supportive, and ultra supportive

ConformGrip Toe StrapOvermolded TPU grips the toe of your boot while conforming seamlessly to all models on the market.

Contour Ankle StrapPlush feel for maximum comfort on long days with a dog-bone shape for flexible tweakage

Bought these after reading all of the reviews and finding such a great price. Put them on a brand new Lib Tech and hit up Winter Park, CO for a test ride.

I knew they had all sorts of adjustability going on, but jee-wiz, this is almost too much. I would have benefited from some additional info on getting them set up. I am going to need to keep adjusting here-and-there to get them perfect, but so far, they have be really comfy and really fun.
Rome has really put some extensive thought and technology into these. I love the 'Yes I Can't' system and the adjustability of the straps, though it's going to take some time to get them dialed-in perfect with my boots(DC Scouts). There were more features on these bindings than I had even realized :) check out the manufacturer's website for all the details.
I ride mostly freestyle/all-mountain, and like how they are a stiffer binding that can adjust to different riding styles.
There may be a lot of adjustments required, but you get the options you need to get the EXACT feel you are looking for :)

These are the worst bindings I've ever purchased. The screws that need to be undone to adjust the length of the heelcup were completly seized, and after applying only gentle pressure one stripped and became impossible to remove. This would be fine if I wore a size 10 boot, but I wear a 13. If there were still a method to adjust these I would leave a better review, but I'm assuming the next step is drilling the screw out.

Comments about Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings 2013:

I'm using these bindings on an OZ Varix 164 Wide board. They are pretty light, and very *VERY* adjustable. There are people online that recommend having a very large Phillips bit for one of the adjustments, as the screws are in very tight and will probably strip unless you have good tools. Otherwise, they're super easy to use, I have them dialed in just about perfect for my riding style, they look nice without being too gaudy (Oh, sorry, I meant "steezy") and I'm pretty sure they'll last a good long while. They feel really responsive with the 3.5 degree camber bed, and the straps are really comfortable and don't create any hot spots. I definitely recommend these bindings to anyone who is looking for something reasonably stiff and very responsive. I think I said "very" about 30 times.

    Love the amount of adjustability with these bindings. The underfoot inserts help a lot, but can be a little tricky to put in. But you do it once and don't have to worry about them again.

      Comments about Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings 2013:

      To adjust the heel cup use a Phillips ratchet screwdriver. You need this extra leverage to undo these screws or you will definitely strip the screw. They are extremely tight almost seized on arrival. Having used this I've dialled in my bindings perfectly, yet to test on the slopes but look like they'll do a great job.

      These are great bindings for freeriding or freestyle. If you like a rigid/responsive binding then this is the ticket. Comfortable, good performance, good componenets.

        Super sick bindings. Took a little while to set up, but worth it. I put in the red foam in the strap for added stiffness. I ride an Endeavor HighFive and with these bindings it made for a lethal combo.

        I love them. Get a pair and you will too!

          Comments about Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings 2013:

          These bindings intimidated me at first because of all the extras, but once I got associated with all the options I fell in love with them. The canted footbed allows for exaggerated stance width so things get steezy in the park, and the toe-strap is wicked flexible, it conforms to almost any boot shape. The only thing to beware of are the screws because they seem like they want to strip so make sure all of your tools are the recommended ones listed in the instructions.

            Comments about Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings 2013:

            These bindings are the first pair I have owned. I love the canted footbeds and the extreme adjustability. The only downside is that they are a touch heavy and on the ones I received some of the screws were in so tight that they were impossible to remove by myself or a technician at a shop. Luckily it ended up fitting my 9.5 size boots well at the setting it was on. I hear Rome has extremely good customer service, so I was never worried (worst comes to worst I would have to get a replacement). No complaints - nice bindings. If I was to purchase again I might go for ones that are slightly less engineered.

              Comments about Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings 2013:

              I'm an intermediate rider, mostly groomers and some off-piste.

              The bindings are very adjustable, but they can take some time to set up because of all the different parts. With an 11.5 boot the default settings for the bindings seemed to work well for me. The canted footbeds are awesome.

              Have to be careful with the screws and use the right screwdriver/tool, they all seem to be prone to stripping.

              Couple of minor cons. They're a tad heavy, or at least certainly not light. The left foot toe strap sometimes doesn't release well. Have to be careful not to overtighten or they pinch a little on the outside of the toe. The pinching might be my boots, I need something a little stiffer than my Burton Motos for next season.

                Comments about Rome Targa Snowboard Bindings 2013:

                I'm pretty picky when it comes to binding setup and feel- I always lock in super tight and I want something that really channels my energy into the board. Paired these bad boys with a 2012 Rome Anthem SS and so far it's been the best setup I've ever ridden! Some may complain about the complications with dialing them in perfectly, but they are designed for riders who WANT to have all the little details worked out and fit perfectly. Stiff and sturdy enough to keep you locked in, and amazing cushioning when dropping the big stuff. I wouldn't recommend them as much for park or freestyle, but in my opinion for bombing steeps and ripping pow they can't be beat.
