For those who like it kinky.

If your idea of fun consists of sliding through kinks, bonking off everything in sight, and nose pressing with authority, scoop up the Rome Artifact Snowboard for a playful board that's home grinding hand rails, buttering around the mountain, and destroying park lines. Sticking with the proven performance of positive camber, the Artifact is used and abused by the likes of LNP and Jonah Owen, due to the poppy and locked-in feel that rockered boards simply can't touch.

Inside the guts of this stick you'll find an Impact Core Matrix. This core contains a 40% wood fiber material in a composite, which helps to extend the durability of the core and also allows for smooth flexing. A single glass HotRod has been inserted into the core, from the inserts to the center of the contact points, enabling explosive pop when preloading the nose and tail on ollies and nollies.

Offering stability when hauling at high speeds and a playful, agile feel at slow speeds, Rome's QuickRip sidecut is included for performance and versatility, no matter how fast you ride. Glass Impact plates are built-in underneath the binding inserts. This brings much needed shock absorption and core protection from heavy impacts, which are common when bomb- dropping, grinding, and gapping through street lines and park runs. 

  • True twin shape with positive camber
  • Soft and playful flex
  • Impact Core Matrix: 40% wood fiber material in a composite
  • StriaghtBiax laminate
  • HotRod Tech: single glass HotRod inserted into the core
  • QuickRip Sidecut: two additional mid-board contact points
  • Glass Impact Plates underneath bindings
  • Impact base (extruded)

the shit!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

tons of pop with tons of press. My little brother has the rocker version and its the softest deck I have ever been on but does not pop like I want so I bought the camber version and I fell in love with it right off the bat. This deck is meant to charge the park so if you want that catch free ride get one of romes other decks. But if you want to hit every feature in every park this is the deck.

So Sickkkkkkkkkk

Perfect shape. Regular camber, no BS! Plenty of pop, and still able to hold an edge like no other. Still soft enough to hold your press, but stiff enough to handle the jumps. All around perfect park board. All black graphics, doesn't get much better than this!

The Perfect Jib Board

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been my favorite park board for a long time, and with good reason. Traditional camber is super stable and poppy, plus the soft flex makes pressing and buttering easy. I've run over a lot of rocks too and the Impact base barely gets scratched.
