This board is not a twin and is definitely a good board for an intermediate or beginner rider. It is a good board for the money and has a softer to medium flex which while forgiving for beginning riders won’t hold up as well on very steep advanced terrain. Great board for the price to ride on average runs at a resort.

the 2 is because there was so much hype behind this vid, the trailer was amazing, the crew of riders are very elite, and it was a little of a let down. it is a good movie and the cinematography is very good, all in hd, it probably deserves a 3 or 3.5. the parts are too short, the music sucks and there are too many parts that have the riders posing for a picture. it almost seemed as though they were too into themselves. but there are good parts to it as well. the biggest disappointment was that dcp is only in it for maybe 20 seconds. i think that the rome any means video is much more fun to watch, and the absinthe optimistic is far better.

VERY NICE. I'm partial to Rome snowboards, this is my 5th in the last 2 years. You can't go wrong with Rome. If you like the looks of this board from the picture you will love it when you see it in person. Lots of detail that you can't see in the pic. Very light and snappy. Not your traditional park deck. I think it would suit for lighter riders as an all mountain twin tip. Out of the box it seems about as stiff as an agent, it is stiffer than my last year agent but that board is broken in. The tip and tail have been thinned out for low swing weight. THEY ARE VERY THIN at the tips, shockingly thin. I'm sure that this will be noticed while doing spins. It has a squared off tip and tail like the headroom or the seven, takes a little to get use to the look of it but it grows on you fast. Very light, very poppy, great jumper board. Dont think it will be the best on rails, but im staying away from rails for awhile with this deck.... Its the board Im most excited about this year.

SICK SICK SICK...
They are a little lighter, the ankle strap is VERY comfortable, and they look better in person than in the pic. Buckles slide smoothly, and they are very adjustable. Best improvement on this binding in my opinion is the toe strap. If you look closely in the picture you can see that they used a different material or pattern (looks like little rectangles), this helps for a comfortable snug fit, more so that previous years. I have always been a Burton binding fan, but these are slowly taking over. I like them much more for the park and freestyle aspect of riding. I think that Burtons are more responsive, but these let you move around more aggressively without reacting too much. They are more forgiving and easier to jump around on. The highback seems to stay out of the way until you lean in to it, or want it to respond. This is great for tweaking and while on rails. A very solid binding, I would highly recommend them.
