Renowned for its true all-mountain versatility, the Rome 390 Boss Snowboard Binding is the go-to choice for shred bums, shop kids, Rome team riders, powder junkies, and anyone else who wants a tough, versatile binding that excels anywhere and can take a serious beating. It offers a happy medium of powerful response and forgiving flex to help you light up everything from park jumps and urban rails to powdery glades and steep chutes.
One of the key features to its ride-anywhere, shred-anything prowess is the 390 Asym highback. This asymmetric highback is stiff enough for powerful heelside carves yet still laterally flexible for tweaking grabs and pressing with precision. Giving the binding high levels of edge-to-edge response, the binding's V-Rod baseplate is a rockered minimal contact baseplate that maximizes the true flex of your board, helping to reduce the dead zone underfoot. Its UnderWrap heel hoop wraps underneath the binding's chassis for near-instantaneous response when you're carving steeps and launching off everything on the mountain. Additionally, this heel hoop has Channel Adjustments for a perfectly dialed fit for your individual boot size.

Solid as a rock, F.L.A. a bummer?

Rode one full day, so far very happy with the purchase. They are incredibly adjustable in so many ways, you can spend hours making fine adjustments for a custom fit. Best attribute was their comfort when riding, felt like riding on clouds, even when stomping and carving hard turns. No longer do i feel that outer-leg burn, these bindings work with you. Very supportive, super easy tightening straps on the fly, and the Autotech strap feature is a sweet bonus. Pads are like pillows, no pressure points what so ever. Components are high quality, hardware is bombproof. So far, I'm disappointed in the tool free forward lean adjuster, even though it is convenient that it can be adjusted on the mountain in a jiffy, the system feels a bit junky, but mainly I am bummed about the levels of lean it offers, as I feel it doesn't come close to how far forward I would like it to lean. Maybe I'm wrong??? But I compared them to my old crappy Solomon binding's and my old pair leaned much further forward. I want that forward lean for better control between heel to toe side transitions, I have a wide, squatted stance, which asks for a higher forward lean. I just switched to the Yes I Can't 2.5% Inbed canting footbed, I'm excited to try it out, supposedly gives more power and control, especially for rocker boards, and eases pressure on the knees. They are also on the heavy side, but a good trade for high quality components, I didn't notice their weight when riding, but you probably will if you ride park a lot, which I don't. Cool colors as well. Toe strap works great both over toes or on top of toes.
Ankle Strap Snapped After 1 Year of Use

I paid 140 for these bindings on sale. Definitely not worth full price. Stoked to get them. Really loved them for the year they worked. Overall, a pretty good binding, when it isnt broken. Im fine with the fact that they broke after 1 year of riding, but I cant get past Rome's "customer service" Its the beginning of the season and what do I want to do? Shred. What cant I do? Shred. Why cant I shred? Because Rome's warranty/customer service center is ignoring me. Why do they have a priority setting on their warrenty claim form if they aren't even going to pay attention to that? I choose "Urgent, shredding this week!" ... I get 5 days of silence and still no response. So I bought some Ride Bindings because Im desperate to ride by Sunday and Ill get them by Saturday. I dont know how the binding will treat me, but I think anything is better than Rome at the moment. Do yourself a favor and buy from a company that actually cares about their customers.

These binders are dope. REALLY strong. The underwrap tech allows for extra torsional flew which makes turning and 180's a freakin breeze. Only complaint I could forsee for people is that they are a tad heavy but in my opinion its nice to feel your binders under your feel. Kinda like a truck feel with a skate board. Bomb proof bindings. Buy these.
