The park: it's the place where all the pieces of your snowboarding skills come together to form a style you can proudly call your own. Whether you assemble the team to learn skills from each other or head out to shred the gnar on your own, the Rome Artifact Snowboard helps you put it all together for freestyle fun. A stable, predictable core paired with a powerful camber shape has heaps of pop, tons of response, and enough forgiveness to give you the confidence to keep on going and learn your next new trick. You don't need to be an archaeologist to unearth what makes the Rome Artifact Snowboard so much fun for riders of all skill levels.
Stomp Core: Rome's most stable and predictable core, built with 100% poplar construction.
Bamboo HotRod(s): Thin rods of bamboo are milled into the board's core starting just inside the insert packs and extending into the nose and/or tail. Bamboo HotRods are very pressable and playful.
Impact Base – Rome's newly upgraded ISOSPORT 4400 base material features improved wax absorption, increased durability, and the most bang for your buck.
A true twin shape is completely symmetrical. If you cut a true twin in half exactly down the middle, you would end up with two identical pieces of board.
This means that the nose and the tail are the same length and the same width and the bindings are centred on the board – i.e. they are equal distances from the centre of the board and the front binding is the same distance from the nose as the back binding is from the tail.
Of course, as you can adjust the width of the position of the bindings you could create a setback stance if you were so inclined but this would be unusual on a true twin given its purpose and might be a strange feel depending on the camber profile (i.e. one foot could end up being over camber and the other over rocker which would probably feel odd).
In addition to this a true twin has exactly the same flex in the nose and tail.
