Product Info

The ultimate freestyle board designed for the snowboarder who can't get enough park riding in a days time and sets up an urban jib park in his backyard jibbing late into the night. Rome's playful Garage Rocker Snowboard makes buttering down the mountain an art form. Rome's Freepop Rocker extends the flat camber section 5 cm wider than the inserts allowing for more stable landing power without giving up the playfulness of rocker in the nose and tail. The Garage Rocker rocks in the park and in the powder.

Product Details

Rocker Type

FreePop RockerA flat camber-and-rocker combo where the flat camber section extends 5 cm wider than the inserts. The extended flat section gives more versatile response and allows for edge control and smooth landings, while the rocker in the nose and tail give float in powder and smooth style on rails.

Flex

Flex Rating: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A softer flex for a more playful feel.

Shape

True TwinEverything from the center of the board out towards the nose and tail is exactly the same. Perfect for riding switch

Sidecut

QuickRip SidecutAdvanced sidecut geometry gives a short, playful feel at slower speeds and a longer, faster and more stable feel at higher speeds. The mid-board contact points end the running length at slow speeds and add grip at high speeds.

Core

Bambooster Technology: CenterlineA 4mm rod of bamboo is milled into the center of the core. Using bamboo is an eco-friendly way to load up energy which give you the pop for doing ollies.

TTT Core MatrixRome's 100% Wood core for a classic snap with flex.

Laminates

StraightBiax LaminateLaminate that optimizes smooth flexing and is designed for freestyle riding

Glass Reverse V Stringer TechnologyStrips of laminated fibers add response and boosts ollies without unwanted torsional stiffness.

Base

XTRD BaseStandard base fast enough for most riders and durable enough for everyday use while still strong and easy to maintain

Binding Compatibility

Rome Snowboards will accommodate 2x4 and 4x4 insert patterns.

I haven't ridden it yet I'm not going to speak to its performance but it looks great out of the box. I'm gonna focus on evos service. When I got the package it seemed to not be packaged very well.. It was just a big cardboard box with no padding or anything but after all you don't really need it for a snowboard. The other issue I had was that there was a pretty obvious line of scratches on the board from one side to the other. It seems as if someone just scraped it against something idk but I'm not very pleased with that. Overall though I am happy with their service

Good Rome Board

Very good deck, especially if you are a beginner. Not too stuff, but not too flexy either. Good for jumps

    Comments about Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard 2014:

    This is a overall solid board. As a very seasoned snowboarder without a big wallet I purchased this board and couldn't be happier for the price this board is awesome. I've ridden it for the past two seasons (for me about 80 times) and it has held up great other than the scrapes on the bottom from cliffs (not recommended for beginners)the board is good for anyone and anything.

      I love the way the board flexes and recovers when you need it. Great pop and great buttering for those rails or just flat mountain. Awesome warranty too, and for the price. Nothing can beat it. Couldn't be happier

                  I got this board for this season of 14/15 and I fell in love. This board is great for spending your whole day in the park or if you like spending your day cruising the whole mountain. I had low expectations for this board because of the price but I was 100% percent wrong! This board is great and I would highly recommend to any beginner or advanced level rider.

                    i use it to avoid renting equipment at steven's pass in washington state. I've used this once on regular free riding through green and blue runs. i found out after buying that it has an extruded base which means less waxing needed and more durability. i've used it once - I'm no expert, but I like this board and I have no regrets about getting this board (except perhaps getting orange instead of blue - however colors are stuck with the size of the board)

                    great value for someone starting out!

                          If you are looking for good cheap park board then look no further. This board is super cheap, but very enjoyable. This is definitely a good choice for novice riders. Pretty soft and playful, it will forgive you lots of mistakes. The only cons I discovered is this board suck at powder of any depth. So I will not advice this one as an allmountain board. You can adapt your technique but it's very uncomfortable in comparison with specialized freeride models, because here you have to pull your board nose almost all the time, otherwise it will sink.
                          Overall: Super-duper-cheap, soft, playful, fun, good for novices, and also a good choice if you need simple work horse for park. Very good piece of equipment for it's price.

                                  Ordered this on Black Friday, for the price I thought I was taking a gamble. Just took it out this weekend and was very impressed. Flexibility was great and with my size 13 boots, my toes didn't drag into the snow like they have with my previous board. Very impressed for the price and would recommend Rome boards to anyone.

                                      I broke in the board as a 5'5" female to check the ride, it's great, although obviously hard to handle with my weight and size. This was ultimately a gift for a 5'10" male beginner. It rides great and easy to learn on.
