For the vast majority of snowboarders, hitting the park from dawn to dusk is the stuff of nightmares. The mountain is there to explore and limiting yourself to the same slope for hours on end is a waste of what mother nature has to offer. The Rome Blur is made to cater for riders whose days are instead spent exploring the trees, picking lines out from the chairlift and charging piste in pursuit of their next powder fix. Sitting between mid-flex and stiff, the Blur is a serious charging board which is best suited to advanced intermediates and above who want a go-anywhere, handle-anything chargin board.
Built around Rome's AirPop Matrix core, combining Poplar throughout with five strategically placed Ash inserts to create longitudinal stiffness with lightweight strength and pop. This keeps the board feeling obedient and responsive without being overbearing or sacrificing its playful character.
The high-end SinterSpeed base is fully sintered providing reduced friction and increased wax absorption over standard extruded bases, meaning you can charge faster on the mountain and go longer between services.
The carbon hybrid topsheet utilises 45 degree stringers layered up 90 degree ones through the core. This creates a powerful, directional orientated flex which drives the nose and tail into and out of the turn.
Basalt, a volcanic glass, is forged into thin plates which are then positioned under the binding inserts. These impact plates are designed to stop core compressions on heavy landings by soaking up the excessive energy, this helps to increase the longevity and life of the board.
The Blur gains supercharged performance thanks to the arcing dual TurboRods, strategically placed carbon rods which focus energy into the nose and tail which help power the board in and out of turns and provide massive pop and rebound.
The Hybrid camber blends traditional camber underfoot with rocker in the nose and tail when the board is loaded. This gives the board stability and directional response underfoot with increased lift and float in powder. This makes it a great choice for riders who want a happy medium between powder performance and all mountain ability.
What we say: â€œRip everything from groomers, sidecountry, trees and backcountry with complete ease on the Rome Blur. Designed in every way to give you complete control and obedience from the board no matter what conditions you take it through.â€
