Our resident backcountry traveler Gary was able to take the Spark R & D Afterburner out into the wilds of Colorado and test this binding. He put it through the paces of seeing how it reacts to skinning, shredding, and all around non resort riding. As a reminder be safe when you head into the […]

You probably saw the picture for this link and thought to yourself what the hell is this and that’s why you clicked on it. This binding has been around for almost a decade just under a different name. It’s something we’ve always wanted to test and see how it held up. This is our review.

The Rome 390 Boss a binding that is as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife. You might find yourself riding powder one day or hitting a rail the next and this binding can handle it all. Here’s what we had to say about it in this review.
