ROME WILDCAT 2016 WOMENS SNOWBOARD
If you’ve ever hiked a park feature till you got your trick, this is your board. Park-centric fun with tech that helps to butter and stomp spins. Built for front boards, back 1’s, tripods and everything in between—it’s time to drop in.
N0-HANG UPS PROFILE: The Rome no hang-ups rocker/camber profile is 3D moulded to have a concave shape very similar to a skateboard. This type of camber has increased pop while still maintaining the playfulness of the reverse camber profiling.
BAMBOOSTER TECHNOLOGY - CENTER LINE: A single strip of bamboo for higher ollies while preserving overall butteryness.
SKATECORE PROFILING: Thinner between the feet with thicker nose and tail for a skate like feel.
POP CORE MATRIX: The everyday balance of response and lightness, this go-to design is built primarily of responsive, strong wood, with two zones of a lighter wood species.
STRAIGHT BIAX LAMINATE: For boards where the focus is on fun and a more mellow feel, pure 90 degree fibers drive the personality.
XTRD BASE: A strong foundation of extruded base material that is plenty fast and super easy to repair.
QUICKRIP SIDECUT: To give both response and playfulness to our rocker boards, we created QuickRip Sidecut to balance the inherently looser feel that rocker provides. You still get the butteryness of rocker, but you also get added power and response when you want it. We integraet two off-set sidecuts that create one sidecut zone in the nose, one between the feet, and one in the tail. The radius of the zones in the nose and tail are the same radius. We don’t blend where these radii meet, but rather deliberately create “bumps” that we call Mid-Board Contact Points. These Mid-Board Contact Points serve as the end of the running length at slow speeds—this allows the rocker boards to ride between these points at slow speed for easy maneuverability. At higher speeds when you are using the full running length, these Mid-Board Contact Points are “bumps” that add edge grip and power.
SHAPE: True twin.
