Product Info

The Rome Reverb Snowboard is the golden child in the Rome family. Designed with Stay Positive Camber to give that distinctive pop in the nose and tail for effortless takeoffs and Basalt Impact Plates allowing for smooth landings. The Pop Core Matrix and mellow flex profile gives a perfect blend of balance and response to press on boxes, hit every jump on the mountain, and stay afloat during epic powder days. The Reverb is one snowboard to slay the mountain with.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Stay Positive CamberPositive camber from contact point to contact point for an ultra-responsive feel. Reliable and durable stiffness while maintaining a distinctive pop.

Flex

Flex Rating: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A medium flex for a mix of playful and powerful riding.

Sidecut

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

Core

HotRods: Glass Single BarrelA thin glass rod is milled into the centerline of the board under the bindings and out towards the nose and tail, which provides more pop, without adding any unwanted stiffness.

Laminates

Basalt Impact PlatesThin reinforcements beneath your bindings to increase strength against core compression caused by bindings

StraightBiax Carbon Laminate90-Degree biax fibers give a solid foundation for freestyle fun. Carbon decreases weight and adds flex to add height to ollies for bigger pop.

Pop Core MatrixTwo zones of lightweight wood paired with a body of responsive poplar make for a smooth and fun board for freestyle riding, and give snap and pop for all mountain riding.

Base

SinterTrue BaseStrong and wax absorbent sintered base allows for an average day of all mountain and park riding.

Binding Compatibility

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

I actually haven't ridden this board yet but I will submit an in depth review of what I think after riding it. According to the specs and how it flexes, I have listed what I believe it would be good at based on past experience. The one thing I have already found as a discrepancy between what I believe about this board and the good ride review of it is they claim it isn't necessarily lightweight. I also ride a Mod Rocker 159 and that board is super light. The Reverb is definitely not heavy, at least as a 155. Further review to come after riding some!

I put about 60 miles of trail riding, groomed and ungroomed powder/moguls, and some amateur park riding on this board over the past few weeks. The board holds edge quite well, it's fine in powder, and has great energy for carving (mind you, I am 5'11" and 145 lbs and I ride the 156). I love it for all mountain and freestyle riding, I set my stance at about 23" and use Rome 390 Boss bindings with the 3.5 degree canted footbeds, 3 degrees duck each foot and the board just feels so easy to control and comfy to ride. It's light and flexible enough and feels fantastic popping air off natural terrain and rolling jumps at the park. Performance wise I have absolutely no complaints and for the ~$200 I spent on it, I couldn't ask for more.

Downside is that the topsheet lacks all forms of durability. The first time I took it out I already had two decent chips, one on the toe side and one on the tail. No clue how they got there, I was on the trail the whole time and never went into the woods. Probably from contact with other ski's and boards on the chairlift area.

By the end of about 45 miles of riding I had some delamination on the tip and tail areas, could have been from falling a few times on icy areas, or from running over small twigs/sticks in the glades. Nothing too serious yet.

By the end of about 60 miles, I must have ran over a stick or a rock or something that peeled the topsheet back on the nose of the board pretty seriously (about 1/2" wide by ~1" long). Stupid me continued to ride it and fell off a jump right on the nose of the board and the topsheet delaminated back about 5 inches.

I've been riding my K2 turbo dream for almost 2 years now in the same conditions and it has nowhere near as much damage as this board has on it after about 2 weeks.

So basically, if you buy this board prepare to do some top sheet repairs. Also it doesn't feel as fast as my K2. But the performance per cost is really quite excellent.

        Very smooth and buttery carving! Playful and yet very relaxing too for free riding. Quick turning, light, very poppy and just all around a fun board to ride.

                Nice, snappy, poppy, carvey board. My last couple boards have been hybrid camber profiles and those have been more loose and buttery so this was a bit grabby and hard to turn at first but i love it for hard pack and park.
