It's good to be the boss.

Unlike your supervisor at work, the Rome 390 Boss Snowboard Binding won't give you crap for your appearance, reprimand you for drinking on the clock, or constantly hound you about your TPS reports. Instead, this is one boss that will actually listen to you, thanks to a responsive feel and a versatile flex that shreds everything from back alleys to the backcountry.

An asymmetrical design lets the 390 Asym highback match your stance angle for a natural feel and delivers the right balance of flex and support. A minimal footprint on the V-Rod baseplate allows for more natural board flex and better heel-to-toe energy transfer, and UnderWrap.2 aluminum heelcup features the new Channel Adjust system to make dialing in the right fit easier than ever.

Experience less fatigue and greater ollie power with the Yes I Cant canted footbed. It allows you to easily adjust the canting angle from zero degrees to three and a half degrees to match your body's natural stance. The Conform Boss ankle strap has double the padding for a cushy, comfortable feel. ConformGrip toe straps allow you to wear the strap around the toe or over the top of your foot, and AutoStrap technology uses an elastic band to keep the straps out of the footbed when you're not strapped in.

This was my second set of 390 Boss' and on the 2nd day of riding this happened to both sets.

Hit up Mike G at Rome. He will take care of you.

Toe strap

Recently received my bindings and was sad to see the toestrap break on my 1st run... not to happy. Luckily the rental shop gave me a toestrap to use so my day on the hill wasn't ruined.

Responded on

Must have been a faulty strap. I have 20+ days on mine and they still look new. Email Rome, guaranteed they'll send you a new strap for free.

Responded on

Wish I had your luck. My second pair did the exact same thing on the 2nd day of riding. I'm going to go back to the trusty Burton Cartels which held up for multiple seasons before breaking down.

Responded on

I have two seasons on my 390 Bosses and have had ZERO problems with any of the straps. Hit up Mike G in the Rome Warranty Department for replacement parts-

Better than Burton Cartels, hands down.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Riding a 2014 Jones Mountain Twin, and I originally started with this year's Burton Cartel bindings. The board was amazing, and then two days into the season the Cartels broke (toe ratchet). I've had enough of Burton's low build quality. so I returned the Cartels (excellent customer service by Backcountry!) and bought the Rome 390 Boss.

I went to the Backcountry retail store in Utah, so I was able to make side by side comparisons of the 390 Boss, my old Cartels, and the Union Force and Factory. The 390 is the most stout in build quality, the most customizable, and the new toe strap is AMAZING. It put the Burton Capstrap to shame, and up until now that's been the industry standard.

If you're looking for a binding that can really do it all, the Rome 390 Boss is the way to go. I set it up to ride a little bit more aggressively with the JMT and Salomon 4.0s, and they were a 100% improvement over Burton Cartels. From taking the time to set them up, I can speak to their adjustability, and they can be set up to be a great medium flex all-mountain freestyle binding as well.

The 3.5 degrees of cant is excellent, there is adjustability built into every aspect of the binding to accommodate soft through stiff flex, forward lean, highback angle, and a lot more.

Spend the extra few bucks, and never look back. I know I won't.

Happy with the bindings

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

First new bindings in about 6 years and I love them. I took some time initially to set these up just how I wanted them. It took a while, but had all the options I wanted to get a 12/-12 duck stance with the high backs rotated and adjusted to fit my boot size. And yes, you need a #3 screw driver, especially on the parts under the footbed to adjust the size for your boot. Almost stripped those screws with a #2.

I've found these to be super comfortable so far, but haven't had too many great days in the PNW yet. The straps feel great and there is definitely a lot of shock absorption. I would have liked to try a 2 degree canted footbed, but I still find the 3.5 comfortable and easy to get used to coming from a flat binding.

390 Boss, GREAT binding

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased these this winter and have ridden them 7 times now. I Love just about everything on these bindings except for the weight. I was used to a much lighter binding, but in return i feel now i have a battleship of a binding! ill get used to the weight. From the canted footbed which is so NICE to the toe strap which i was leery of first now am SOLD. Grips my boot like no other toe strap. No slippage for me. Ankle strap is kush. no pressure points what so ever. Powerful binding with plenty of flex. Havent done any big mountain pow day yet, but im sure i will be pleased when i do. Im happy with the ratchet system, and the auto strap "technology" is a simple but smart feature. They did take a bit to setup, but i def like that about the binding. Probably why the fit so perfect!

I wear a 9 Nike Vapen boot. what size should I get? S/M?

Responded on

That is what I would recommend. For most bindings, I am borderline between small and medium and always size down so my boots have a nice, snug fit in the binding.

Responded on

You should fit fine in the Small/Medium

A Step up

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very cool binding! For me it is a huge improvement from the Cartels. Not taking anything away from the cartels. But with 390 boss I felt in a lot more control of the board then before. Even on long flat runs covered in bumps left behind by those pesky skiers, or day old pow pow, it never felt like I had to work to stay in control of the board.

These binding are extremely comfortable and very forgiving on the knees. That 3.5 bedding they put in there is like butter. When your a grizzly bear on a snowboard its one of those things that you pray for. (I'm a big dude)

They are a bit on the heavier side which didn't really make that much of a difference to me since I stick to cruising the mountain and not much else. The ankle strap in very comfortable and I didn't feel like it was too tight at any one point. The toe strap gave me a bit of a problem to begin with. It took a bit of adjusting for it to stay completely on the boot, but once I got it working properly it was smooth sailing. Keep in mind, although they have made huge improvements from last yrs model(or so they claim) this binding still comes with diagram on how to tweak them up to your specs. I will say I have put together a carburetor faster, but it is well worth the hour or so that you will spend for the ability to customize it.

Only complaint about the 390 Boss is the ratchet system. I was looking for a binding that would be as easy to use if not better then the Cartels, Didn't get so lucky. Locking in is pretty smooth, but releasing does require a bit of elbow grease.

Final note- make sure to use the recommended #3 screw driver or you risk stripping the screw.
All in all this is an awesome binding and I'm very happy I got them.

I wear a 9.5 32 boot. what size should I get?

Responded on

You are obviously on the border, but I would go with the L/XL. 32s are kind of a mid-width boot in general but you don't want to be stuck jamming you boot into an over tight binding.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I didnt keep the first pair of bindings I purchased. I am a size 9 right on the cusp of Rome's sizing betweekn M/L ad L/XL it was recomended that i choose the M/L - not a good recommendation! the L/XL are definitely a better fit for a size 9. havent ridden them yet but they seem exactly as represented so far. I especially like the elastic band that pulls the strap out of the way of the footbed.

Are these the 2104's?

Just what the doc ordered.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Amazing bindings with total tweakability and plenty of support for all-mountain freestyle riding. If big-mountain riding is your thing, you may want to look at the Targas, as they offer a more support in the highback. Otherwise, I'll quickly reiterate what others have said. Super comfy toestrap is probably the best in the biz. Plenty of customizing, as far as fitment goes. Dampening is excellent, and I love the 3.5 degree canted footbeds for decreasing knee fatigue and giving my rockered board more powerful ollies. Nothing bad to say about these, in fact I would recommend these to any skill level and any terrain, except huge Alaskan-style lines.

*Note, use a number three Phillips screwdriver when adjusting the binding. I happened to use a number two (my mistake) and severely stripped one of the screws. I had to drill the screw out, and the polycarbonate base held up (although, I wouldn't recommend you do that). Super tough bindings overall.

Definitely Boss

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Romes best binding ever, everything you'd want for sure. I've had these for a few season and bought them a few times. Stiff enough to hold hard landings, but soft enough for tweaks and other saucy tricks in the park. They're pretty light weight and also customize-able so you'll be able to get them set how you'd want them. This may be weird but the toe caps are probably my favorite part. I LOVE ROME TOE CAPS. They fit so freaking good on your boot and you will never have a problem with them. If you been looking at these for a while and can't decided. Stop thinking and get them.

Tweak Hard!

The 390 Boss bindings are just that, BOSS. Strong enough to handle the rough stuff, and soft enough to tweak a proper tuck knee (Even if you are upside down).

Tweak Hard!

Fully awesome, super customizable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bindings are the BOSS. It's in the name for a reason. I really really love the level of tweakablility and customization. If you are like me and love your set up super tuned, you will also apreciate what Rome has done with these. The ratchets this year are awesome. They grip like a bear trap when you want and slide off like melted butter when you need em to. The toe cap on this binding is my favorite, ever. It doesn't have any fabric or material to wear down or through in my case. It conforms perfectly to different boot shapes and can be rocked on top or over the toe. The V-Rod base plate gives you a more natural flex on any board and offers more tweakability when getting nasty in the park. The straps are super meaty and even have Auto strap tech that pulls it to the side so you don't have to struggle to get in. Given all those awesome features they even have a CANTED footbed! They come with multiple angle footbeds so you can decide what feels best for you. There really is something to the technology and I've really enjoyed the comfort and enhanced power in my ollies. I weigh about 185 LBS and can take this binding just about anywhere I want. For hard charging mountain and pow, the highback may feel a little soft depending on your preference. Get em' and ride like a BOSS.

Rome is BOSS.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Have not ridden these yet, but will give everyone my initial thoughts for those interested in ordering these before the season starts like I did.

First off, I have wanted 390 Boss's for some time now and have heard nothing but amazing comments on these since I can remember. I wasn't sold on the color options from last years 390 Boss's so I held off until just recently.

I ordered the Black/Blue which match great with my '13 Artifact Rocker 156(Black/Blue/Purple). The blue on the bindings is a little lighter shade than on the board, but it looks amazing nonetheless.

The canted footbeds are a simply brilliant idea. These come with the traditional 0 degree footbeds and the 3.5 degree footbeds. I didn't even have footbeds on my Cartels. Talk about a step up. I run a pretty wide stance and just standing in the bindings I can feel a big difference. It doesn't feel like my knees are being torqued outward anymore. Gotta save my knees. 27 years old, I'm no spring chicken anymore.

I love the toe strap too. My old Cartels would frequently slip off of my toe, even when I wasn't hard charging. I see no slipping happening with the ConformGrip toe strap. The ankle strap is very firm, but soft too, like a good mattress.

These bindings have many adjustments to them, giving you the ability to really dial them in and make them your own. Some people may see that as a negative, some as a positive. I enjoy tinkering around with my gear, so for me that's a positive.

I will provide an update once I get 4 or 5 days on them.

Everything You Want in a Binding

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these bindings. The straps are super comfortable and you can really feel the canted footbeds when you ollie, turn, or ride over chunder. The combo of the aluminum chassis and plastic footbed makes the 390s super responsive but they have a great flex when they're on the board. I ride them in the park and powder and they kill it!
