Product Info

For the pure pleasure of pressing 5-0s and blunts, LNP, Eiki and Lazz all mount up the true-twin Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard when they ride handrails, ledges, and boxes. The Reverse-Jib camber line is flat underfoot for balance on rails, while the reverse camber in the nose and tail makes press tricks so easy that it’s almost cheating. Glass Reverse-V Stringer Technology ups the ollie and nollie height as well.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Reverse Jib CamberFor those riders who prefer the park even on pow days; a flat profile between the feet and reverse camber from inserts to contact points for a board that takes pressing to a new level and delivers locked-on balance between the feet on rails.

Sidecut

QuickRip SidecutA unique sidecut geometry that lets the board ride loose and playful at slow speeds and powerful and precise at higher speeds. QuickRip lets a board “ride short” at slow speeds by engaging the mid-section sidecut between the mid-board contact points and lets you “ride long” at high speeds by engaging the full running-length sidecut where the mid-board contact points work to improve edge hold.

Core

Impact Core MatrixComposite wood technology designed for lightweight strength. The StraightBiax Laminate is tuned for butters, presses, and catch-free landings.

Glass Reverse-V Stringer TechnologyAdds ollie pop that lets the board stay this way too.

Base

Impact BaseExtruded compound that fights against jib abuse

When Rome first came out with the Artifact almost 8 years ago it was the first board of it's kind. A board designed to jib, press and hold up to the abuse of a 100 day season taking a beating day in and day out without breaking the bank. The New Artifact Rocker holds up this tradition but with added benefits and features like the QuickRip Sidecut, Glass Impact Plates and Jib Rocker. The Artifact Rocker is one of the most fun boards we have in the line that I ride on a regular basis. I ride the 153 and take it with me to demos and on snow events. If the snow is stale and the park is beat you can still have the most fun of your life on the Artifact Rocker. It's probably not your first choice for riding on a pow day but it will be your go to board for park riding.Take a look at this review done by the Angry Snowboarder. This guy is pretty hard to please but he loves the Artifact Rocker. [@]

The board rides pretty awesome in the park. It's got a lot of flex and pop but is still smooth on big landings, you don't butter out like tech9's. It's good for technical rails and big jumps, but you can still ride the rest of the mountain with it. The only problem is that my tail layers split after only 3 months. This wasn't from dinging it or hitting a rock, the layers split from a manufacturer's defect. I'm still talking to rome about getting it replaced.

    Comments about Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard 2011:

    I am a beginner~ish intermediate. I got 150, I am bout 170, 5'-7". I am pretty comfortable with carving and just started to dabble on ollie~nollie business and doing tiny little jumps and presses. My first board was Rossi Avalon (03~ish?) which I felt too stiff to try learning butters & other butter related activities... so I was looking for something forgiving & flexible fun. I took it out for the first time last weekend and the board was SO amazing! Very forgiving and easy to press, and I could be much more reckless on it without catching the edge and fall on my butt. I don't ride so fast (beginner!)but when I carve down, it held much better than what I imagined. That was a nice surprise. It felt very nice when I was laying down carve properly and felt the baord pop. The rod thingy they put inside the board (forgot what it was called) definitely works to give some pop when ollie. (I was expecting noodle...) It was last day of the season for me, and I smiled all day riding it. [...] and Aprils Fools Day 10% discount on top of already lowest price I could find the internet was super sweeeet! (I have been looking to buy a board for over a month searching online!) KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Other boards I seriously considered are K2 WWW (it was just more expensive, sadly), Rome Garage Rocker (I think it would've been also quite nice), and Salomon Salvatore Sanchez (It was actually MUCH cheaper than Artifact but seen a few reviews of people hating it outside the park...) - oh, btw, was riding it with Burton Mission binding + DC Rogan boots. Very safistied with all my gears right now.

    Comments about Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard 2011:

    Rome's softest board could quite possibly their most fun. Obviously the board was made for the park. Tons of pop, super buttery for presses and smooth landings. This thing is also pretty dang stable at high speeds; I didn't feel out of control what so ever when pointing it straight down the hill. The only con I have is carving, as in it's not super good at it. The 3 degree beveled edge may prevent you from catching on a box or rail, but it certainly makes holding your edges a little more difficult. This board does take some adjusting to, you really gotta dig in your edges to get a good hold. But really, you're not buying this board for its carving ability. You want the butter, and this board gives it to you.

        The Artifact Rocker is perfect for what it's designed for - butters, 180 on nose press tail tap out on rails and boxes, and tail presses over your head. It's got decent pop because of the fiber glass rods in the nose and tail, but it's too soft to bring you down if you land on your tail. It's basically the ideal jib / rail assault board. Perfect for what it's meant for, but intended to compliment your quiver, not replace it.

          I've been riding since the Burton Woody was in style and have ridden more decks then I can recall. I always saw rocker as a gimmick... Something the punk Groms rode... No longer. This not so old old man is sold. This deck is super buttery. Like riding a wakeboard or a kiteboarder which is great in powder and park. Uber forgiving on rails and other objects. You can land off on jumps and are much more likely to slide it out over catching an edge. It is now my goto board for most days. I will however stick with my other boards for icy/groomer days. I have used it some snowkiting and really enjoy the POP for tricks, but it does lack a good solid edge for higher wind days.

          I generally stick to freeriding and am quite to noobsickle when it comes to tricks and freestyle but I bought this board to play around on while teaching friends and family how to snowboard. My stiff freeride board (Bataleon Omni) wasn't much fun to use while going really slow and teaching turns so I bought this to learn some ground tricks and switch riding and wow is it fun!

          Presses like the Staples Easy Button and super forgiving thanks to the reverse camber. It has a surprising amount of pop for such a noodle board as well, which was nice. However a jib specific deck does come with drawbacks: it is unstable at high speeds and has no dampness whatsoever. You will feel every little chop and bump outside of the park.

          Overall I really enjoy the Artifact Rocker as good board to mess around on and take to the jib park. I'm hoping to try out a Bataleon Disaster to compare as I really enjoy my Omni though.

          Awesome steal for the price. Board is definitely made for rails and boxes, but can be taken off smaller jumps as well (wouldn't recommend hitting anything bigger than a 25 footer.) I can easily stomp 3's and 5's with it, but it is best on rails. Being a 2 out of 10 (super soft flex), you can just about bend it in half without it snapping. Great buy.

          I would recommend this board to someone who treats the whole mountain as a park. Not looking to bomb runs everywhere but looking to just have fun. It will carve great but doesn't have the pop in and out of the turns like some of the other boards in their lineup. I would gladly take this as my everyday board. I like the tip and tail pop and the torsional flex makes the board buttery fun. I had never ridden an Artifact before and now I am sad that I haven't. This board ranks in my top 5 for park boards that I have tried out a couple more days on it and it might start pushing for number 1.

                This is a really fun board, very loose, great for presses on boxes and rails. It is by far the softest board I've been on, and has taken a little getting use to. It's great in the park, although I found myself washing out on landings if I'm in the back seat at all - because of how soft the board is.

                This board is definitely great for boxes and rails as the flex is beyond super soft. It's got enough pop to get on to rails but if you have a feature with a smaller lip and a larger hit you'll defintly be laboring for it. The only other thing I didn't likr was that i washed out on heel side carved a lot at high speeds. I know its a rocker and a super noodle but it doesn't really build up you cofidence to cruise. I did however like it in the park it defintly crushes it when it come to presses and spins on and out. If you just hit the park it would be okay but for me I like to take a run or two to find natural hits when I get mad at a trick so I like something a little more stable to cruise with confidence. that's why I went back to soft camber!

                  The radest park board I have ever ridden!! The reverse camber is killer. It is a must have for the park. It cradles the rails and so much more.

                  The boards flex is sick in the park. Holds up well on rails and boxes. Wouldn't recommend doin huge kickers with this board. High speeds get a little sketchy. Otherwise sick board would definitly recomend for intermediate and up park rider.

                    I bought this deck because it was 66% off and wanted a board that I could tear up and not care about.

                    After detuning it and riding it a few times I definitely would ride this in the park all the time; it's great for jibs and is easy to land on. The flex is awesome. It makes presses a lot easier. I was most surprised at how much pop it has, but looking down the edge I think it's because this board is mostly flat. It does have a slight rocker profile and rides like a rocker board, but it doesn't have nearly as much as most rocker decks.

                    The only problem I've had was tightening the bindings. I didn't have this problem with the Lib Tech so I wasn't cautious. I put the bindings on and they still moved around, so I tightened them to the point where they wouldn't move. Looking at the back, the screws pushed out the base on all 8 holes... I might recommend getting some shorter hardware or some kind of spacer for mounting the bindings.

                    The only other thing is it's made in Austria... Really wish it was made in the US

                      Got this as a Christmas gift. I honestly love it. Pretty flexible and really soft and LOTS of pop.
                      I'd say best for freestyle and jumps, but handles park really well. Best for an all around rider. I ride a 155 wide (I have a size 12 foot so I have to go wide). Best board ever. Although, if you're looking for a park only board, go with the artifact. the Postermania is an AMAZING all around board. 5 stars

                              Rode flat camber last 2 years. Was looking at arbor draft rocker but found killer deal on this board at evo. I grew up skateboarding and wake boarding. wanted a board that I could goof around on - butters ollies and all that - surf style. This board is so fun to ride. I'm 5'-10" and around 170lbs and riding the 153.

                              I've only ridden positive camber boards previously, so switching to a reverse camber board was a bit different at first. It feels completely different than a + camber board. Overall, the board is great in my opinion. It's easy to use and very fun. Performing tricks of any kind (especially butters and presses), are easy and effortless. I beleive that riders of all skill levels can easily adapt to this board. At higher speeds, the board can get a bit squirrely and unstable. Also, it's not the best board on an icey day. Overall, this is a great board for everyday use at your local shred-playground.

                                Board seems good so far, I've never owned a rocker board or such a soft/flexible board before. It's a lot of fun to play around on and super easy to butter and board press.

                                The only thing I've had trouble with is holding an edge when landing from spins. I tend to just keep spinning when i hit the ground. This is just likely because I am not used to the rocker edges yet.

                                Great board so far, definitely recommended!

                                I got this board cheap online. I generally ride all-mountain and jumps, not very much rails. I am used to riding my + camber Rome Artifact, so when I got the artifact rocker it was quite a bit different at first. It has a completely different feel than the other boards I have ridden. I wouldn't say its better or worse, just different. This board is very fun to ride. The soft flex makes it easy to do arial tricks and buttery flat-land tricks. The board can get a little squirrely at high speeds, and a little sketchy on icey conditions (but what board doesn't). It's probalby not the best board for pipe, huge booters, or deep powder, but it does suffice. Overall, this is a great board to just mess around with and have fun on a great shred day. It's a great board for a great price.
