Product Info

The Mod Rocker can do anything you want it to do in a single top to bottom run. From backcountry kickers to deep powder lines to the park, this is your weapon of choice. Built with never ending pop and full control stability, the Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard responds like a Porsche and destroys like a tank.

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: 6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A stiff flex for powerful turns and lightning quick response

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

AirPop Core MatrixHeavy on the non-heavy side of the spectrum (it's superlight) with five zonal regions of low density wood mixed with poplar for high energy transmission and a responsive reaction

HotRods: Carbon Double BarrelTwo milled rods of the lightest, most durable, power-transferring material channel pop to the entire nose and tail with a little extra torsional stiffness.

Laminates

Kevlar Impact PlatesThe sweet spot is under the bindings. With all that abuse, the Kevlar in these plates protects your top sheet and transforms chatter, torque and compression into concentrated pop.

SuperlightBiax LaminateDesigned for one thing: to shave the fat and eliminate the weight. This laminate takes a new approach to harnessing flexibility while blending seamlessly with the pop created from HotRods.

Base

SinterCarbon BaseSay no to static friction! With the durable and porous sintered structure as a foundation, carbon nanoadditives reduce friction to eliminate unwanted drag and provide the speed riders crave.

Binding Compatibility

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

Comments about Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard 2013:

First off I am not a rocker camber guy, but after riding this board I'll never look back. This board easily added another foot onto my ollies! Rome adds two carbon fiber rods into the nose and tail that make this board ridiculously poppy. Yet it still allows this board to jib rails and crush pow. Beside all of that, the board is very light, durable, and fast! If you are looking to turn the mountain into your park, I would look no further. This board won't disappoint.

        Comments about Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard 2013:

        I bought this for my nephew for Christmas 2013. I gave it to hime early, so he could start using it at the begining of the season. This is the first time we purchased a board from ROME or EVO. I started my nephew's snowboarding addiction 12 years ago. He was very excited to try a new brand of board. He did the reasearch and picked it out. To our surprise the board broke on his first trip to the hill. Part of the edge chipped away and EVO had us work with ROME to see if it would be covered under Rome's warrenty. It is not because it looks like "impact damage." We have never had anything like this happen with a snowboard. I will never purchase from EVO or Rome again. Now we have to pay to get the board fixed...if even possible.

                  Comments about Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard 2013:

                  After riding Ride boards for the past 8 years, I decided to switch from a camber to a rocker board. I demoed this Rome board and it surprised me on several levels. For one, the rocker on this board definitely rides longer than the 156 size I picked up - feels more like a 159 without sacrificing any carving ability. Second, the pop is super responsive and really fun across the mountain.

                  I've been freeriding for over 20 years so now I mainly just ride for speed, the occasionally ollie and some deep powder carving. This board fits my needs to T. Excellent board that I would highly recommend!
