Sometimes you need a little reverberation in your rock and this board is just that. Cranking the metal up to 11 and getting down with a face melting slash is just what the doctor order when you’re shredding this stunt stick. So here’s how this board rode.
Board: Rome Reverb Rocker
Camber Option: Mtnpop Rocker Camber. Reverse between the feet and camber in the tips.
Bindings: Rome 390 Boss
Angles: 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 T1 DB
My Weight: 160
Conditions: Powder, slush, firm groomers, sunshine, pure blizzard, and all the other typical spring conditions that happen in Colorado.
Preconceived Notions: It’s another board with that combination of reverse between the feet and camber out in the tips designed to be ridden all over the mountain.
Flex: Softer tips little stiffer between the feet and some torsional give making it one of those middle of the road predictable flex.
Stability: Not overly damp which adds to the livliness in this board. Sometimes in chopped out terrain there was a bit of instability making you check the brakes.
Ollies/Pop: Great snap out of the tips that really let you load up and pop on to rails or off jumps and rollers.
Butterability: The slightly softer tips let you manipulate the board into various ground presses.
Cruising: The edge hold on this board is super solid on every snow condition I encountered. Rome has the Quick Rip sidecut that gives a little extra hold where it’s needed.
Jibbing: Locking into presses was amazingly easy on this board and the sweet spot was perfect. It’s the right blend of flex, camber profile, and shape that let this board excel.
Rider in Mind: The true all-mountain freestyle slayer.
Personal Thoughts: This board is solid I’ve ridden the Agent Rocker/85 the last few years and honestly I wish this is how that rode. For cruising the whole mountain it was great. In the park from jumps to jibs it was solid. It was just a board I could get on and honestly was super stoked to be riding.
What They Say: First chair on pow days, last chair on warm park days, snow-gun jibs;stale fish over gaps; tree lines; belly-scratching carves; knuckle-dragging laybacks.
