Product Info

Remember the first published photo of a rocket air on a skateboard? Well, maybe not, but it was none other than Christian Hosoi. The Rome Hammerhead Snowboard pays homage to to this groundbreaking skate icon with the shape of this deck. The Freepop Rocker profile allows for superior pop to get the maximum amount of air time possible while the Hosoi shape gives natural jibbing capabilities. This is a true skate inspired board for those in search of hand plants, transitions and Animal Chin. *Note: This is a factory blem board and may have slight cosmetic damage.*

Product Details

Rocker Type

FreePop RockerWith the flat section extending 5 cm outside the inserts, these boards have a park-to-peak amount of pop and edge control. At the same time, the rocker in the nose and tail give float in pow, smooth style on rails and stylish finesse off jumps.

Flex

Flex Rating: 2 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A soft flex for freestyle and a very playful feel

Shape

ButterOut Transition ZonesSmooth as butta'; this drawn out transition zone is a playful take on Rome's classic design, creating a play-a-round freestyle board, guaranteed to fuel your snowboard addiction.

This deck honors skate history with an iconic Christian Hosoi shape.

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.

True Twin for easy switch riding.

Core

Skatecore ProfilingThis is a core profile that is thinner and softer between the feet and stiffer in the nose and tail. The result is a ride that feels like a pair of trucks when turning and ollies more like a skateboard.

PopCore MatrixLow density wood in two zones through the board for a lightweight profile with a flexible poplar matrix

Laminates

StraightBiaxDesigned for the fun and creative rider, this laminate has a forgiving response through presses, jumps and jibs.

Base

Impact BaseRails, rocks and trees mean nothing to this base. Constructed of the strongest abrasion resistant compound, this advanced extruded technology with a high density structure holds up to what you can dish out.

Binding Compatibility

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

    Comments about Rome Hammerhead Snowboard - Blem 2013:

    I just bought a Hammerhead and it is the greatest board I have ever ridden. Unfortunately we don't have many days left in the season for me to enjoy it. I have had Burton under my feet since I started riding, but now I have seen the light and you have earned a customer for life. I love the heritage and hometown feel Rome brings to this awesome sport, and the hassle free shipping and purchase from Evo. The time and effort that was put into my Hammerhead is obvious just by looking at it. Riding it is another story. It the most flexible board I have ever seen. All the tech in this board just blows my mind. The Hammerhead is very flexible and forgiving on handrails especially. I receive at least 3 comments on it each day I ride, people love the evil, mean look of the graphic and unique tip and tail. The flex in the board makes it very easy to kick onto a feature with next to no effort. The only issue I have with the board is that if I hit a kicker bigger than 5ft the landing is impossible when the board becomes a wet noodle under my feet. That is not the intended purpose of the board though and for jibbing it is unmatched in steez, flex, and pop. I love this board and I love Evo! Keep up the good work.
