Description

The new archetype of backcountry freestyle.

The Rome Mod Rocker Snowboard could well have come into being when Bjorn Leines and Lucas Debari simultaneously picked up a magic lamp and wished for the be-all and end-all backcountry freestyle board. Chances are that the Mod;s improvement with FreePop rocker, QuickRip sidecut, and double carbon barrel HotRods was the work of some hardworking engineers and input from riders, but nobody should rule out the possibility of a magical genie doing his thing, either. 

  • FreePop rocker gets loose on jibs while still crushing huge jumps and floating pow lines with a primarily flat profile that extends 5cm outside the inserts, then transitioning to rocker out to the the nose and tail
  • True twin shape rides evenly whether you're straight-bombing or switch-mobbing
  • QuickRip sidecut places extra contact points on the middle of the board to give you reliable traction between your feet
  • Double carbon barrel HotRods place two hollow carbon and fiberglass rods directly into the core to enhance longitudinal and torsional pop
  • KEVLAR® Impact Plates reinforce the board's most vulnerable area directly under the bindings, greatly reducing compression and stress on your binding's base plate
  • SuperlightBiax laminate weighs considerably less than regular biax glass while still delivering a flexible feel with just the right amount of snap
  • AirPop Core Matrix is Rome's lightest core because of its articulate lay-up and blends of smooth poplar and five zonal regions of low-density wood; the end result is an overall lively flex with hints of forgiveness throughout
  • SinterCarbon base infuses the durable and porous compound with nanoadditives to greatly reduce friction so you can clear the gap and get to the pow first

Great flex

just carpet jib these baby
good flex, compared to my bataleon evil twin which is hair stiffer
weight about the same with evil twin, not that lightweight like all the review say
and the base look fantastic closer

really looking forward to test this baby
winter please come faster

Hey Tim, the appropriate size snowboard will also heavily depend on your ability level and the type of riding you like to do (park, powder, all-mtn, etc). Chat or call in and one of our Gearheads would be happy to make a size recommendation for you.

kill it anywhere

i LOVE this board. pretty stiff, much stiffer than my previous board so it was a bit hard to get used to, but now that i've ridden it a bunch it handles like a dream. the pop rods really work i can ollie wayy higher than ever before and the quickrip holds an edge like none other. a bit stiff for rails but it will still get you through. buy this board ppl!

I am about 165 lbs, 6 feet tall, and wear a size 11 boot. I have been riding a 153 k2 and have been feeling fine with it but I am looking to buy a new board. I was wondering if the 156 mod rocker would be alright for me even though my feet are on the larger side because I would prefer not to step up to the 158 just to get a wider board.

FWIW, I've ridden the 156 mod rocker with a size 11 boot and my toes don't drag. I think you'll be fine at that size.

I've been riding this board in a 156cm. After 7-8 days it's finally breaking in real nice. I'm shocked at how well it performs on every condition. I've taking it in pow, tree lines, park and groomers. It just eats em all up. I am currently about 5'10" 180 lbs. This board has just about every feature you could want. Beefed up kevlar plates under the inserts to give you ultra durability and better power transfer to the board. Has the super awesome airpop matrix core which is poplar based so its nice n lite but snaps off mega ollies, especially thanks to the carbon hotrods. I have also really been enjoying the quickrip side cut that offers additional contact points but not too grabby. Regarding the multiple contact topic, I feel like the magnetraction is just a bit much in some scenarios. Just feels a bit hooky sometimes riding switch or spinning. I have a few days under my belt so I do have pretty solid board control skills so maybe i'm just able to get the control I need without it. Granted, magne-traction kills it on ice. I've been on quite a few multi camber type boards (DC, LibTech, Burton, Rossignol, Nitro and Neversummer) as of late. I really really like the 80% flat with 20% ish early rise camber style. It's simple but very stable at slow speed, high speed, flat based, turning and still has tons of forgiveness thanks to the reverse camber tip n tail. Oh one more thing I love! Super rad sintercarbon base is not only lightning fast, it can take a beatin'. Hit a rock today lacing up a tree line. Looked at the base when I made it home and it just had a white smudge I was able to nearly wipe off completely. I would say for a all mountain but really park friendly ride, I would prefer the 153cm. The carbon just gives it a ton of pop and reliability. Due to the early rise I can still float in the pow just fine with minimal weight transfer. I will update this as I get more time on this amazing shred machine.

Wicked good fun

I switched from a gnu to this board and I love it. tons of pop, super stable on jumps, and it hauls. Great looking board that can do anything on the mountain!

Mega POP

This is probably the best board I've ever ridden. The freepop camber profile on the Mod rocker is just so fun to ride. The dual carbon fiber hot rods in the Mod rocker are really noticeable when cracking off big ollies. I've ridden this on groomers, in the park and in powder...it charges thru all of it.

Quiver Killer

This board can literally do anything. Still enough flex to get a good press on rails, but one of the snappiest decks I've ever ridden. The HotRods give you noticeable improvement in ollie pop, and the thing absolutely hauls ass. Great for ripping all-mountain, in the park, yet still floaty in pow.
