Product Info

Love to goof around in the park, butter your board, and land happy and smooth? Also like to take that same board beyond the park for some speed and all-mountain fun? The Rome Lo-Fi Snowboard, with the FreePop Rocker and PressurePop Technology, is built to do this all and more. Grab the lo-fi and get down for a good time.

Product Details

Rocker Type

FreePop Rocker CamberA longer flat mid-section extending outside your bindings and then rocker from there out to the contact points. The rocker allows the board to feel buttery and float in powder, but the extended flat camber section improves ollie pop, edge control and stability for jumps.

Flex

MediumFor a lady looking to push the boundaries of riding possibilities from the park through to the rest of the mountain

Sidewalls, Edges and Base

SinterTrue base has fundamental sintered performance that is abrasion resistant with major wax absorption for a speedy ride.

Core

Superpop Core MatrixA super lightweight matrix of poppy wood for a dynamic, lively feel.

PressurePop Basalt V TechnologyAn eco-friendly tech that is light and strong to maximize torsional snap for edge-to-edge quickness and power. V shape extends outward from the rider foot to the edges at the contact points increasing both longitudinal response and energy release from edge to edge.

Laminates

StraightBiaxThe glass configuration that steers the board and is torsionally forgiving to keep a super playful feel.

Base

SinterTrue BaseFundamental sintered performance provides abrasion resistance with wax absorption equals all the speed you need.

This is my first board and I have rented for a LONG time, so I have tried a lot of boards. There is a good review on "the good ride" about this board and I agree with it completely. Yesterday I took it down the mountain over and over and over again :) The board has the most amazing turn initiation I've ever tried. (could have been my awesome rome runway bindings too though!!) it is lightweight and easy to maneuver in just about any trick or run. The only thing it is missing is the magnum technology that gives you a smooth ride in thin cover and end of day bumpy conditions. This board had a harder time riding stable on the very last run on the yuck bumps and ice. Other then that I am quite impressed with this board and I can't wait to ride it again!

This is a fun board, I usually hate rocker but since it is more flat then rockered it makes it more stable. I went 3 centimeters up so my first day was a little uncomfortable. Now that I have ridden it a few times it' a really fun board for small spins and jibs. I think it will be a nice boarder.

    Comments about Rome Lo-Fi Rocker Snowboard - Women's 2012:

    I got this board new this last season after using my first ever beginner board for 4 years. I cannot tell you how happy I am with the change. I have improved so much this season and it is because of the board. It is very forgiving and so stable, it gave me so much more confidence to push myself to do things I wouldn't have tried with my old board. The best part about it is, because we ride at Baker in the Northwest we see a lot of deep powder, and this board just made it feel like carving through butter...like floating on a cloud. I can't speak to it's ability at the park but I rode in all conditions this year and no matter what I put it on it rocked. I LOVE IT!

        Really like this board. It is my first owned board so it took a few runs to get used to it, but once I did, I loved it. I ride both goofy and switch and because its a true twin, it was very easy switching between the 2. When I was in Vail I had several people who work there ask me where I got it since they wanted it but had trouble finding it there.

                Ride this board every day since the year Rome came out with the lofi. This is my first time getting the rocker but it's awesome. Some rockers tend to be very wishy washy but this boards rocker is more of an early rise on the tips so it is still as stable and fun as the lofi always has been. I demo boards often and will be surprised if I ever switch models. I've ridden it on jump, rails, trees, back country, and on groomers. Just perfect!

                This board is great, my last board was a roxy eminence and it did not feel as stable as this board. The rocker in the nose and tail really helps and allows float in powder. This board is slightly harder to carve than a board with the rocker between the feet, but I actually liked this better because it feels like I am in more control. It's a little rough on bumps when the snow gets bad at the end of the day, but great on jumps, ive been learning 180s on this board, great on boxes, overall just a great go do anything board.

                  Bought this as a gift, some friends who rode this last year raved about how amazing it is. One girl in particular was just learning and she credited her ability to get the hang of things so quickly to the versatility of this board. The other two friends were already int/adv'd and simply loved how the board felt and how it inspired confidence.

                        I used this board on a ridiculous 60CM pow day at whistler.... and i almost died in all the pow. I wish this board was a bit longer/ faster/ harder riding -- but that's probably definitely also my skill level holding me back. Good fun board to jump around on, play with in the park and i look fwd to progressing on it!

                        I use the board two to three times a week. It's been awesome! Has lots of pop, good control, and great for an all mountain board.

                          I love the board, the only negative thing I can say about it is is doesn't always carve so easily because the edges don't grab harder packed snow.

                                Ive taken this board out 2x's and LOVE it so far. Feels super stable riding down the hills, carves well and is still playfull and poppy for tricks. Great all around board, highly recommend!

                                  I really really like this board! Its very fun and responsive! The only thing I do not like is in super early fall Colorado conditions its a little harder to keep my edge. It isn't bad you just have to work a little bit more in icy spots. Its a great board but a little more advanced then I'm used to so far. Cant wait for an awesome season!

                                  I love this board so much! It has great flex, the pop is amazing, its more for an aggressive rider but its a blast.

                                  This board like any other cambered board was easy to turn super effortless and held a really good edge since it had the bump under foot..
