Move from the trees to the park to pow.
Progress your riding skills with the smooth-flexing, ultra-lightweight feel of the Rome Women's Shift Snowboard Binding. Serving up a mid-level flex, the Shift is a highly versatile binding that's ideal for up-and-coming riders looking to hit everything on the mountain without an overly stiff, unforgiving binding holding them back from linking first turns and learning new tricks.
The Shift highback features cored-out sections for enhanced lateral mobility when you're tweaking out tricks, without sacrificing heelside response desired for responsive carving. Tool-less forward lean allows riders to fine tune the level of heelside response when they're transitioning from park laps (usually ridden without forward lean) to steeper runs where forward lean is more desirable. The Unibody baseplate saves serious weight with its injected one-piece design. Additionally, substantial EVA baseplate padding softens the blow from heavy landings and choppy snow conditions.
Dialing in an ideal fit, both the ankle and toe straps feature tool-less adjustment for centering them over your boots without fumbling with screwdrivers on the slopes. The Progressive Flex ankle strap is 3D-formed to reduce pressure points with a flex that stiffens up as you move toward the center of the strap. This allows for an optimal mix of flexibility and ankle support, ensuring high levels of overall comfort. Additionally, the ConFormist toe strap comfortably hugs the tip of your boot should you desire a more traditional feel.

- Q & A
Careful with the size!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I needed new bindings, because my older ones were getting "stucky".
I am still getting used to these, but my initial impression is promising me an even more enjoyable season than I had so far, the bindings are higher off the ground and react a little different to me than what I am used to, but already feel like they will perform better with me as soon as my feet and them get comfortable with each other.( I will update my final impression when the time comes)
I like the no-tool adjustment system on the latches. The flip and click pressure system makes it easy.
What I don't like is that they're running small. I am wearing size 8.5 boots and therefore ordered these bindings in Small. The latches just barely fit over my boots! Next time I will order them in M.
