Product Info

Ollie it, press it, stomp it, ride it out like a baller on the Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard. Crafted with freestyle-focused FreePop Rocker which places a flat section between the bindings for epic stability on rails. In the case of a surprise pow day, the Artifact can handle big drops and floats with ease due to its rockered nose and medium flex. The wood core is profiled like a skateboard deck to ensure you have the snappy, playful feeling you need to really throw down some tricks. Rome s Artifact Snowboard hangs in the park and can hit up some urban street rails after dark.

Product Details

Rocker Type

FreePop RockerFlat underfoot with a rockered nose and tail for pop that still floats and presses.

Shape

True TwinA true twin snowboard shape is ideal for riders who want to ride switch and do some tricks. The nose and tail are identical and the flex is evenly distributed throughout the entirety of the board. True twins are perfectly symmetrical.

Core

Stomp Core Matrix100% wood core with additional impact-resistant wood in the necessary areas to strengthen and dampen the deck.

Skatecore ProfilingA full length horizontal laminate on top for the strength underfoot and a maximum skate full throughout the flex pattern.

HotRods | Single BarrelA thin rod placed down the centerline of the wood core. This gives the deck a powerful pop without unwanted torsional stiffness.

Laminates

StraightBiaxRome's laminate for riders who make the most out of any terrain. 90-degree fibers optimize the deck's flex.

Sidewalls

Rebound SidewallsFor park-oriented boards, a new elastic sidewall compound is used that absorbs impact better for greater durability.

Base

Impact BaseExtra-high-density extruded compound is ideal for the rider who puts a beating on their board and may not get around to waxing very often. Durable, no questions asked.

Die-Cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

    Comments about Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard 2016:

    I had a smile on my face the entire time I got to ride it today, people calling this a wet noodle clearly haven't ridden it or are simply too heavy. It's got great pop and great feel. Butters and presses for days. But when I got it home I noticed split edges in both the nose and tail.. and slight delamination toe side edge of my back binding from sidewall to top sheet. This really bummed me out since I only rode it for 6 hours. Only hitting kickers and throwing spins and grabs. Didn't do any jibbing at all because I wanted to break it in fully first. I went from a 2012 ride kink to this and my ride took so much abuse it's not even funny. I just wanted a more playful jib deck for pressing and such. The board is a ton of fun to ride, but I don't see it holding up for very long which is why it only got 3* if you can afford to buy a new deck every season, get this board! If your looking for a board you can thrash season after season and is this much fun, please let me know what you find.. because I don't think I will be buying Rome anymore.

    Great park board. Only used it three times and I can tell I'm gonna have fun with this for the foreseeable future. Lots of pop, great with boxes/rails and decent sized jumps. Can't wait to use it again.
