Product Info

Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2011: Poprock technology for the people! Some riders sacrifice income for the sake of the shred; others treat their snowboards like skateboards- use ‘em hard, wear ‘em out, and replace ‘em. And some of these riders want the buttery, press-with-pop feel of a Poprock reverse camber board. Armed with Glass Reverse-Free Stringer Technology, the Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard lets these riders kill the local fun box and get floaty in pow.

Product Details

Flex

This board has a mixture of pop and buttery feel that is perfect for jumps and jibs and even attacks pow lines.

Construction and Core

The TTT Core Matrix is a 100% wood core for that natural snappy feel from wood fibers. The StraightBiax Laminate jumps in and is tuned for butters, presses and catch free landings. Add to that the Glass Reverse-V Stringer Technology gives you added Ollie pop that lets the board stay buttery.

Base

The XTRD Base is a hassle-free extruded compound for baseline speed.

Sidewalls and Edges

The Park Edge Bevel -2° base and side give you a blend of finesse and grip

The Reverse Free Camber is for those riders who like running park laps as much as they like shredding pow lines; this camber extends just beyond the inserts with straight camber in the nose and tail for a board that butters, carves, floats and jibs

picked this up from evo in fremont, i wanted this board since the day i saw the flex tests. it is sooooo flexible, ive ridden it for 4 eight hour days now and i LOVE it, ive ridden it through powder, in the park, on groomers and even on icy snow and it always holds up... the only things i have seen that get to me are the topsheet graphics (which i have mostly covered in stickers) and the fact that at speeds it is VERY easy to washout when carving on groomers and in icy conditions, way more than other boards i have ridden... OVERALL i give it an 9 out of 10.

I'm a pretty all around rider; I like rocking out on quick slopes for adrehnaline, slow ones for messing around with buttery tricks, and most importantly hitting the park for rails, jibs, boxes and a kickers.

This board handles just the way Rome describes it. it's catch free and soft enough to effortlessly lay down lean lipslides. Very fun board.

Big downside: A 1.5"x0.5" shard of the topsheet tore off on my first day out from an encounter with a monster mound of powder with some ice at the bottom. No way this should have happened.

Now I'll see how accommodating Rome is with warranty work...

Comments about Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2011:

I love the garage rocker. Its super playful and fun. I'm a park and pow shredder n this board makes it all the better. It feels a little unstable goin mach ten, or carving, or goin through crud, but its not meant to. Its a buttery board with plenty o pop. Rome did a great job. Love it.

    I love this board! Great balance and smooth ride in the park. TONS of pop and awesome flexibility. Only downside I found is it doesn't have the re-camber in the tip and tail to give you any support if ya land on the hood, or in the backseat (if you know what I mean); but thats a pretty small downside.

    Comments about Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2011:

    all i do is shred the park and ride lots of street where i'm from. at first when i bought the board i thought maybe it was gonna be a bad idea. i thought this board is pretty cheap and there's no way this is gonna stand up in the streets. But you know what, i was completely proved wrong. I've had this board out to the park 8 times this season and love it. perfect pop for hittin kickers and its stiff enough you dont wash out. on rails, this board has the perfect shape, the flat base in between the feet is amazing for staying on rails and it has the perfect amount of rocker. Flex wise i give this board a 5 and that perfect. you have to flex to butter you whole way down the mountain and the stiffnes to pop ollies as high as you want. all i can say is YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS BOARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comments about Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2011:

    The Rome Garage Rocker all in all for the money esp. here on EVO.com is a great board. First impressions are important and unfortunately for the garage rocker they are not good. Ugly graphics smeared on the top sheet. I have the 154 and it has a mexican dude with a blindfold on. this is a dude snowboard and it's called a garage rocker...can we please get some chicks, beer and headless bats on the top sheet? This thing rides well in the park. It's good on smaller kickers (under 30 feet) but anything larger it is a little unstable on the landings. Good pop, and great for jibbing. I love the reverse hybrid camber but i do wish it had a little bit more of an upcurve on each end. This sucker will ding pretty easily sometimes, but it has also suprised me by holding up to some rough sidewall smashes. For the current asking price of [$] plus 20% off how can you go wrong. Buy it, tear it up. also I detuned my edges when i received it. It comes park tuned but still has to much edge. detune those bad boys or you'll probably eat it on a rail. Just sayin.

      Comments about Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2011:

      200lb. dude on a 159cm. Great cheap board to surf pow on. Rocker lets me ride a shorter board and still float; and surfy feel makes carving snowy wave features dreamy and effortless. It's soft and forgiving for my old knees and still has remarkable edge hold on ice.
      My only gripe is the newschool megastance options - my next setup will require smaller stance options and this the ability to ride a slightly set-back stance.

          This board is a great buy for the price! Doesn't get much better. The reverse camber ("rocker") design seems flawless, definitely a better ride than the traditional camber boards. Board does not catch edges and gives a much more stable, comfortable feel than other boards.
          The only downside is that it's not the fastest board ever. A good wax does quite a lot to help, and it hasn't bothered me too much. But I've just noticed it's not as fast as other boards.

            Comments about Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2011:

            I am an all mountain rider. I have taken this board from groomed park conditions to deep powder and it never dissapoints. In the powder it floats perfectly and dosent sink to deep. While on groomed snow it keeps itself together at higher speeds and when you feel like throwing in a butter its flex is unmatched. It also can take a beating, i've run this thing over rocks, sticks, and into trees and it still holds up. This board does run a bit wide so i would suggest it for more experienced riders, who already have a year or two under their belts. All around a perfect board for a experienced rider who's ready to step things up a notch!

                  My son loves the board, but when another boarder went across the back of his deck, a chunk was lifted off the board. so far creative use of gorilla glue, various epoxies and time have yet to solve the issue of continual lifting.

                    Really nice ride, upped my progression considerably. only downside the factory edges are super gnarly, a good detune will be important to avoid catching edges on rails

                      -thought it would be a brighter yellow, almost neon, the color it is isnt as appetizing
                      -regardless of the above, it was super cheap. All in all, I got a great frikkin deal

                      i got this board for only [$] !! this board is insanely fun because of how flexible it is. i get a lot more pop when i jump onto a hand rail, making my ride a lot more smooth. this board is completely worth every penny.

                            Well I bought this board after my first time snowboarding. I was immediately hooked on the sport after going on my first run, and all I thought about was buying the right board afterwards. I chose this one, I looked at reviews, what size in relevance to my weight, everything you can think of. I finally was able to take it for a run a few days ago, and I love it! I'm a beginner, I just got carving down, thanks to this board. I don't know all the terms yet, but I do know the board is the business! It's semi-flexible, carves nicely, and looks sick with my nike boots! "flyer than the rest of 'em." I'd recommend this board to any beginner and i'm sure it's great for intermediate use! ALSO, get the Rome bindings, their on-sale at EVO's outlet, and they go perfect with this board, that's what I did at least.

                            I'm a pretty all around rider; I like rocking out on quick slopes for adrehnaline, slow ones for messing around with buttery tricks, and most importantly hitting the park for rails, jibs, boxes and a kickers.

                            This board handles just the way Rome describes it. it's catch free and soft enough to effortlessly lay down lean lipslides. Very fun board.

                            Big downside: A 1.5"x0.5" shard of the topsheet tore off on my first day out from an encounter with a monster mound of powder with some ice at the bottom. No way this should have happened.

                            Now I'll see how accommodating Rome is with warranty work...
