the rome service dog is just waiting for you to let it off the leash. it's the ultimate new powder board in the rome family and won't let you down on deep powder days. the free-the-ride camber, in combination with the 3d-nose provides massive lift, while bamboo hotrods provide stability. let the service dog off the leash and feel its power.
riding style the new rome freeride board for deep powder days. this board is perfect for experienced riders looking for a versatile board for high-speed turns on the slopes and in the backcountry. no matter the terrain or snow conditions, this is your resort and backcountry performer.
shape the tapered directional shape is perfect for all-mountain and freeriding. the nose is slightly wider than the tail and provides for controlled turns in any terrain. the offset of the bindings in the direction of the tail (setback) makes the nose a little longer for even more lift in powder.
profile the free-the-ride camber profile comes with a positive camber in the tail, a flat camber on the front binding and a rocker in the nose. the positive camber offers pop and good edge hold. the flat preload allows for easy and quick turn initiation. the rocker in the nose increases buoyancy in powder. the diamond 3d profile is essentially a 3d shaped nose. just like the shape of a spoon, this lifts the contact points off the snow to prevent canting and increase lift in the pow. without compromising stability, pop or grip on hard snow.
flex the medium-stiff flex ensures precise control and fast board response.
construction the stomp core is made from 100 % poplar wood, making it the most stable core in the rome family. the powerslide base is a high quality extruded base. quick and easy to maintain. hotrods are thin tubes made of carbon, bamboo or fibreglass and are embedded in milled channels in the wooden core of the board. the flex and pop can thus be precisely placed and changed. in the case of the service dog, bamboo hotrods were installed to increase stability.
