Product Info

Built to dominate handrails, jib lines, and anything else in the park; the Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard features the JibPop Rocker Camber that is flat in the mid-section and rockered from the feet out for the perfect amount of balance and fun on presses. Plus Glass HotRods technology increases the kick in your ollie and nollie power.

Product Details

Rocker Type

JibPop Rocker CamberLoose, playful and super press-happy. Flat and stable in the mid-section with rocker from underfoot to the nose and tail to optimize press tricks.

Flex

Buttery and soft

Sidecut

QuickRip SidecutA unique sidecut geometry that lets the board ride loose and playful at slow speeds and powerful and precise at higher speeds. QuickRip lets a board “ride short” at slow speeds by engaging the mid-section sidecut between the mid-board contact points and lets you “ride long” at high speeds by engaging the full running-length sidecut where the mid-board contact points work to improve edge hold.

Core

Glass Single Barrel HotRodsPlaces a rod of fiberglass in the centerline of the nose and tail for higher ollies and nollies. The single barrel increases longitudinal kick without altering the flex profile.

Impact Core MatrixA composite core impregnated with 40% wood fibers that flexes smoothly, stands up to abuse and leaves light impact on the environment.

Laminates

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

Base

Impact BaseAn advanced extruded compound that fights against the abuse of rails, boxes and rocks.

Glass Impact Plates™2x more compression resistant under the binding to combat the abuse of landing on hard objects.

This is my first rocker board, and first "park" board. I've been snowboarding for about 10 years and started on a traditional camber board and I've ridden camber almost the entire time. My last camber board that I still have is a 2008 Burton Custom X 156 (very stiff, very fast board). For the past season I wanted to try something different, so I got a hybrid board (Burton Custom Flying V 148) and this board, the Rome Artifact Rocker 144. I got the shortest board (I normally ride ~153) because I wanted this board to be single-purpose board: Just for the park and for buttering. That said, it really is a single-purpose board, not an all-mountain, jack-of-all-trades board.

I tried doing some speed runs with it and it's downright scary. Too much flex, unstable at high speeds, doesn't carve well. I must have wiped a few times trying what I would have done in my Custom X with no problems with nice big carves. So that was the last time I was trying that...

But on a more flat incline, trying butters and ollies and jumps and just playing around in the park, this board shines. It's really hard to describe how flexible this board is. Despite the short length, I can easily lift up half the board at will. It's really soft. And therefore playful and easy to mess around with. I paired my board with 2013 Burton Malavita bindings (which is stiff for a park setup, I believe, but I like my bindings super-stiff (I'm mostly a carver/bomber and need uber-fast control and stiffness in bindings and boots), so it's still "soft" to me. But it also gives me great control over the flex of the board. It's a combo that works. I might try putting my old-school 2001 Drake F-60s on this board as the high back is not as big and high, so it might give me more flexibility.

The short summary is, if you're looking for a super soft and flexible board for the park, tricks, and butters, and you don't want to pay a butt-load of money, this is your board. I got mine as a clearance 2012 model in 2013 too, so it was cheap enough that I don't care if I scratch it, break it, whatever. In fact, I got a big nasty gash the first time I rode this, and I just laughed and said I'll p-text it later, whatevers, it's so much fun...

Just don't expect to bomb runs and carve with this sucker.

The Rome Artifact Rocker is a solid park board but with limited all mountain capabilities. Great for rails and spinning. The board is very quick edge to edge and can get unstable when carving while freeriding. Given the prior year discount, this is a great option for a park board you don't mind banging around.

    Comments about Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard 2012:

    I actually own the 10-11 version of this board, but they are very similar with only slight changes. I have been riding for about 14 years but more recently got into jibbing. I picked this up as a 'sacrifice' board for rails and to have something smaller and more flexible than my everyday board (Rome Agent Rocker) for riding with my wife and kids (read: switch). This board is SO much better than just a jib stick. Edge grip is very good for such a soft rockered board. I was able to produce some respectable whiteroom inducing turns on steeper corduroy without washing out. That's despite the fact that I was on a 156 and weigh 195 lbs. Poppy, smooth, fun, absurdly easy to press and butter. Check out Angrysnowboarder's review for another opinion. No, this would not be my first choice for running the LBS, but it's a LOT more versatile than I was expecting.

        This is probably the nicest board I've ever ridden. It rides very smoothly, and feels very natural. It flexes just enough for presses, but it doesn't slip out. It has plenty of pop, even for a park board. I haven't found anything I dislike about this board yet. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to ride in the park.

        Comments about Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard 2012:

        I bought the 156, and named it Lexi Anne ;D I took her up over Easter weekend and got to get some nice spring riding in. Im 5' 10" and 135 pounds and I rode pretty much all mountain. She tore the HELL out of everything I rode her down. It was best in the park, Specifically rails and boxes, and good on kickers. since I'm light I can still get some spring out of the tail. She was awesome in powder and staying in control while weaving through those narrow trails in the trees. She did alright speedwise and on steep stuff (I wish I had a camber for that) but it felt awesome, especially for a rockered board. She doesn't catch edges as well, helping to make your landings better off kickers. sometimes, however, I washed out while landing a kicker when i least expected it. but that may be because I have a size 11.5 foot. Overall an awesome board.

          This is hands down the most fun I have had on a snowboard. It locks in to presses without any effort, kills rails better than Gary Busey on a 3 day bender and butters better than Land-o-lakes. Tons of pop for being such a flexy board and handles big park kickers with no problems. If you live in the park or shred handrails after hours you shouldn't be riding anything else. Period.

          Had the 144cm for a 5'2", 115lb son. Perfect fit. He loves it. Good enough for midwest pow..Great for freestyle and park..Jibs, ollies easily with extra pop.Landing on ramp jumps was solid but I would not recommend the 144cm for a heavy weight person..Very good all round board for our Midwest resort conditions.

              I was so excited to get my hands on this board before the 2011/2012 season ended. I didn't want to spend a whole lot, so I waited near the end of season to get it discounted. Evo even did price matching plus an additional 5%, and the turnaround was next day! Anyway, as for usage, I usually spend my time on groomers, but wanted to venture onto more technical riding on parks and features. I'm new to it this year, but I've been riding for almost 8 years now, and I thought this would make the perfect entry point for me. The flex in comparison to my other board is quite substantial. I've been practicing butters and going over boxes and rails, and I can't wait till next year! Thank you Evo!

                  This is the first time I've bought a "specialty" board (i.e. not an all-around board), so take that into consideration... Having said that, this is not my board of choice if I wanted to carve and bomb double diamond steeps. In fact, it's a bit scary and unstable and I wiped out a few times trying that lol... I have a Burton Custom X or my trusty all-around Burton Custom Flying V for that... But if I want to hang out at the park and do some flatlands buttering, this is the right board. Ultra flexible and playful. I sized down considerably (I'm 130lbs, 5'4", normally ride a 150-ish; but I opted for the 144cm Artifact Rocker). It's super easy to do presses and butter and just a nice light playful board. I got this one as a past season board at a superb price at evo, so I bought it to beat on it. However, on my first day out (spring riding, slush), I hit a few rock patches and the base got gouged quite easily... So I guess it's not quite as durable as I had thought... But I'm going to ptext it and keep riding it. At this price, I can afford to bang it up... :)

                  I've mounted this with a pair of 2013 Burton Malavita ReFlex bindings. A good combo.

                  The Rome Artifact Rocker is a solid park board but with limited all mountain capabilities. Great for rails and spinning. The board is very quick edge to edge and can get unstable when carving while freeriding. Given the prior year discount, this is a great option for a park board you don't mind banging around.

                      My main worry when I bought the board was that it wouldn't be as stable as I hoped since it is my only deck. But I was surprised at the balance between flex, pop, and stability. I lightly detuned the board and still had plenty of medium speed stabilty. Great board for park laps AND groomers. I would recommend this board to anybody regardless of skill level.

                          Very easy to do ground tricks. Soft flex. One of the best boards for buttering.

                              This board is so playful and iv learned so many new tricks with it. Awesome flex and loads of pop. Iv also bombed hills with this board with no stability problems. This board comes at a great price now and you would be crazy if you needed a new board and didn't buy this.

                                        The board was a gift that I picked out. Ordered before Christmas thought it would arrive Christmas Eve, it didn't show up and I was leaving Friday on a trip to Lake Tahoe. I called EVO on Wednesday the day after Christmas told them what was going on, they looked into it and there were weather problems that had delayed the package. The package was later lost by the carrier, EVO saved my trip by shipping it overnite on Thursday for us!

                                          This board is super buttery and is awesome for jibs. It's got good amounts of pop and is awesome for landing big tricks off some back country kickers. This board is awesome.

                                            Really nice and buttery and flexy. Not the most stable at speed, chatters a bit but knew that before buying. Not as much pop as I would like. Tons of fun though and easy to maneuver.

                                                I purchased this board for my son. He says it's great! Plus the design is cool.

                                                I initially got this as a park deck but it actually does well as an all mountain board too. It has a decent amount of pop and holds edge really well, especially here in MN where it's mostly hard pack. It doesn't have the fastest base but that's expected at this great value price. Not the lightest board I've owned but predictable and easy to ride.
