The idea of using a highbackless binding isn’t anything new it’s just more people are feeling that it gives that skate-like or surfy feel when sliding around the mountain. Since Kevin our resident binding tester is a strapping young lad or lady depending on who you ask he was willing to sacrifice his body for […]
I’ve ridden a lot of decks in my day and it just seems that every year someone has to make a death sled that scares the living hell out of you. This was one of those decks. Whether it was the base profile, use of original camber, or the fact the core is one of […]
I’ve ridden this board since it first came out in the Nitro line. It’s a jack of all trades master to none type of board that I think just about anyone that’s cruising around playing on the mountain would be happy. Since it’s a new year here’s another review.

Now that everyone has figured out the whole alternate camber thing and it’s pretty much a done deal base shape is the new thing. You have TBT, BS Tech, 3d Base, Snake Transition, blah blah blah etc. etc. Rome is playing around with this diamond shape that elevates the contact points but keeps the majority […]
Big mountain freestyle is one of those awe inspiring things to watch, but it’s even better to do. The Grip is designed for just that. Utilizing G.I.F.T. technology you would be hard pressed to find a more green snowboard.
