The best way to spend a day or week in the winter is up on a mountain snowboarding! If you like free styling, glade running or all around boarding, Rome SDS has the right board for you! The Rome Slash is the perfect board if you like to mix up your day and hit all the trails. A triax laminate lets this board turn easily at slower speeds, but its still responsive off jumps and holds its edge when you’re moving fast. A carbon reverse-v stringer in the nose and tail help with response too. Romes signature impact edges are extra thick to prevent damage when hitting the rails or grazing a tree. In addition, Rome uses proprietary impact plates below the bindings to make the board 2.5x stronger than traditional wood core boards. I wish I could truly test out all those features; however I am just not that good on the slopes and really didnt want to visit the local emergency room. Thankfully my 15 year old son is that good, and could test out all the features. To choose the best board for your riding style, visit Rome on-line at www.romesnowboards.com.
