HotRod Technology


New configurations and new materials for 2014 mean more precisely targeted pop from Rome’s HotRod Technology. First we build thin, hollow tubes of carbon, basalt and glass. Then we mill channels in our cores and insert the rods. Different patterns, all starting under your bindings and ending at the contact points, create different levels of ollie, nollie and torsional response. Basalt is new for 2014 for a lot of the power of carbon, with an environmentally-friendly footprint.

HotRod Configuration

Reverse Radial V

A reverse-V pattern of HotRods with a slight radius that channel power into ollies and nollies while only adding minor torsional response. Available only in carbon.

Double Barrel

Two parallel HotRods designed to give rocker boards more pop all around—for ollies, nollies and power off the edges. Available only in carbon.

Single Barrel

One HotRod down the centerline of the board is the perfect solution for giving more ollie/nollie pop without adding any unwanted torsional stiffness. Available in carbon, basalt (new) and glass.

Single + Double Barrel

A new powder-specific configuration with one HotRod up front and two in the back for more tail snap. Slash in deep snow and land big drops. Available only in carbon.
