Comments about Rome Lo-Fi Rocker Snowboard - Women's 2013:

I rode it for a week straight this christmas and I can honestly say it's my favorite board. It looks great and I get complimented on it a lot, and it's very easy to maneuver and handle overall. However, it does ding very easily. After a week it had a couple scratches around the edges and peeled a bit. Still, it's very nice and the bottom isn't scratched up even though I did hit ice patches.
A good board for a good price and it looks awesome.

Comments about Rome Lo-Fi Rocker Snowboard - Women's 2013:

Got this board because I wanted to progress from freeriding into the park and was looking for a stable, all-mountain board, this one was priced great with good reviews. I've been snowboarding for 13 yrs and ride about 65 days a season, and I wanted something forgiving enough for the park but stable enough for riding backcountry and deep powder. This board dominates it all with one exception: It's hard to go straight. The rocker shape is excellent for gliding, turning and floating pow and landing jumps, but carving on firm days is a challenge because I fight to hold an edge, and straightlining at high speeds feels loose - like the board is going to fly out from under me - because it has so much torsional flex. Overall it's a good board and I'm excited to have it in my quiver, but I'm keeping my old board for groomer days and speedruns.

      I love this board. I would only consider myself an intermediate, but I had just gotten to the point with my old board that it was holding me back. In came the rome lo fi rocker. It was love at first ride. Super responsive- I thought, therefore I went. Not a crazy rocker, so it made a great transition for me from my old camber. I'm looking forward to many beautiful seasons together.

      Comments about Rome Lo-Fi Rocker Snowboard - Women's 2013:

      This board is amazing! It will take your riding to the next level. It's very sensitive and easy to control however it is easy to catch an edge especially in flat areas because the board likes to turn and spin and pop more than it likes to go in a straight line. It's feels really stable over jumps and lands smoothly...feels like you could land anything. I bought this board to ride park primarily...I havent really been able to try it in powder (thanks global warming) but it rides great on groomers and doesnt chatter or feel rough. After riding it for three days in the park the top sheet is pretty chewed up around the edges-it doesn't seem that durable but obviously dents and dings are just cosmetic. Overall I definitely recommend it.

      Handles great at high speeds (I'm able to keep up with my boyfriend!). Lightweight and flexible enough for ollies and presses. Rode this in both the northeast and Colorado. Just an awesome all around board. Only gripe is that the topsheet dinged on day one.
