Get away from it all.
There are three things that we don't like about resort snowboarding: crowds, money, and hardpack. The Rome Whiteroom Splitboard makes all three disappear. The reliable convenient split mounting system combined with medium-stiff flex and Rome's innovative Powder S hybrid camber make the Whiteroom the perfect tool for getting away from crowds and into the privacy of your own, personal white room.
The Whiteroom's most important innovation is its Powder S hybrid camber. From the nose to the last front binding insert, the Whiteroom uses a full rocker profile for huge flotation in bottomless powder. The effect is a ride that can only be duplicated on a surfboard. From the front binding inserts back to the tail, the Whiteroom is a traditional camber board. That means tons of pop from the pre-loaded tail and unparalleled edge control on harder snow.
The folks at Rome laid up the Whiteroom with tried-and-true wood laid tip-to-tail. Two zones of lightweight wood team up with poplar for smooth, predictable flex and loads of pop. Then they added Kevlar® and carbon stringers in a V at the tip and tail for ridiculous stiffness and unheard-of edge control. The StraightTriax30 laminate adds even more stiffness and edge control. Rome's designers also added Kevlar impact plates under the binding inserts to eliminate compression caused by high-impact landings, and finished off the Whiteroom with a lightning-quick SinterSpeed sintered base.

Great at getting up and getting down.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have a 158 Whiteroom that I use on the East Coast and enjoy it. I run Voile pucks with Blaze bindings. I find that the board takes zero adaptation from my groomer board when I'm out on it in the powder; I believe that is thanks to the rocker nose of the powder S camber. I've been happy with the uphill performance both breaking trail, in established tracks, and on snowmobile/snow-cat tracks. I tried a fully rockered split previously, and it was a little scary in tour mode on the slightest bit of packed snow ~definitely a fan now of the S camber for touring. Weight is low on the decks as well...

Thanks for your question!
The Rome Whiteroom Splitboard only comes with the clips that you see in the picture. There is no additional hardwear that is included when purchasing this splitboard.
You would have to buy the essential kit from voile or a karakoram set up (which if yea got the $ I'd suggest it).
http://www.backcountry.com/voile-universal-splitboard-interface?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6dm9pbGUgc3BsaXQ6MTo0OnZvaWxlIHNwbGl0 there is one package that is cheaper with out the binding plates, which I would highly suggest having split specific bindings. Other wise you're an inch above your board.
Or the karakoram system, it is the best system on the market, also the priciest.
