If you love powder and hate lift lines, then you already have two things in common with the Rome The Whiteroom Splitboard. Rocker up front to keep you floating on the pow pow and camber in the back to give you the needed power for big slashes and huge airs, The Whiteroom is your ticket to surfing the fluff, away from the crowds.
Powder-S Camber Rocker from the front foot to the nose and camber from the front foot to the tail allows for perfect powder riding. A ton of float in the nose and a ton of power in the tail for responsive riding.
Directional Designed for set-back stances, with more board in the front of your front foot than in the back of your rear foot, to optimize fast and powerful down-mountain riding.
AirPop Core Matrix Five regions of super-light low-density wood integrated with poplar throughout the core for an extra responsive feel
Kevlar Impact Plates The highest level of strength and protection from core damage
StraightTriax30 The laminate that covers all the bases, from the park to all-mountain peaks, the 30 degree off-axis fibers set the personality of the board to flex into low speed butters and pop into high speed takeoffs. It provides some extra kick in a slash and maintains your style while getting creative on and off the trails.
PowerBars: Carbon V More power, more energy, and more carbonation. Pre-formed bands of lightweight carbon add responsiveness and guarantee pop in powder.
Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
SinterSpeed Base Ultra porous high-end sintered compound absorbs large amounts of wax to maintain high speeds while straight-lining jumps and bombing through powder.

Comments about Rome The Whiteroom Splitboard 2013:
I bought this board because I wanted a split that was reasonably priced, skinned well, and was directional. The whiteroom does all of this. It is one of the better priced splits on the market and Rome presses quality boards. This is the first cambered board I have been on in years. I bought camber because of the benefits while touring and was a little nervous to ride camber again. It rides great and with the huge rockered nose it floats great too. For a Rome board it is a little less skate feel and more surfy (not bad just being a Rome I thought it would be a skate like feel). It does great in angle pow surfing and big lines (I had it in Paradise basin on Ophir pass last weekend). Only complaint is at low speeds it can be hard to turn and having tight trees here in Summit it makes it less than ideal in some situation.
