Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard
The Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard could well have come into being when Bjorn Leines and Lucas Debari simultaneously picked up a magic lamp and wished for the be-all and end-all backcountry freestyle board. Chances are that the Mod;s improvement with FreePop rocker, QuickRip sidecut, and double carbon barrel HotRods was the work of some hardworking engineers and input from riders, but nobody should rule out the possibility of a magical genie doing his thing, either.
- FreePop rocker gets loose on jibs while still crushing huge jumps and floating pow lines with a primarily flat profile that extends 5cm outside the inserts, then transitioning to rocker out to the the nose and tail
- True twin shape rides evenly whether you're straight-bombing or switch-mobbing
- QuickRip sidecut places extra contact points on the middle of the board to give you reliable traction between your feet
- Double carbon barrel HotRods place two hollow carbon and fiberglass rods directly into the core to enhance longitudinal and torsional pop
- KEVLARŪ Impact Plates reinforce the board's most vulnerable area directly under the bindings, greatly reducing compression and stress on your binding's base plate
- SuperlightBiax laminate weighs considerably less than regular biax glass while still delivering a flexible feel with just the right amount of snap
- AirPop Core Matrix is Rome's lightest core because of its articulate lay-up and blends of smooth poplar and five zonal regions of low-density wood; the end result is an overall lively flex with hints of forgiveness throughout
- SinterCarbon base infuses the durable and porous compound with nanoadditives to greatly reduce friction so you can clear the gap and get to the pow first

i LOVE this board. pretty stiff, much stiffer than my previous board so it was a bit hard to get used to, but now that i've ridden it a bunch it handles like a dream. the pop rods really work i can ollie wayy higher than ever before and the quickrip holds an edge like none other. a bit stiff for rails but it will still get you through. buy this board ppl!

I switched from a gnu to this board and I love it. tons of pop, super stable on jumps, and it hauls. Great looking board that can do anything on the mountain!

This is probably the best board I've ever ridden. The freepop camber profile on the Mod rocker is just so fun to ride. The dual carbon fiber hot rods in the Mod rocker are really noticeable when cracking off big ollies. I've ridden this on groomers, in the park and in powder...it charges thru all of it.

This board can literally do anything. Still enough flex to get a good press on rails, but one of the snappiest decks I've ever ridden. The HotRods give you noticeable improvement in ollie pop, and the thing absolutely hauls ass. Great for ripping all-mountain, in the park, yet still floaty in pow.
