BOARD SHAPES

THREE APPROACHES TO SHAPING FOR THREE APPROACHES TO THE MOUNTAIN

To work with the personality-driving impact of our camber shaping and our technologies, we design three types of board shapes that help create the different feels within the Rome quiver. The shape helps determine if the choice is designed for a nearly pure park life, a life sampling from everything from peak to park, or a daily search for that perfect turn .

True Twin

Our True Twin shapes are perfectly symmetrical. If you cut the board in the dead middle of the board, the nose piece and the tail piece will be identical in shape and flex. If you remove the graphic from a True Twin, there is no way to tell the nose from the tail. With their balanced feel and equality toward switch riding, this shape helps drive the personality of our park boards and the more jump-oriented all-mountain freestyle boards.

Directional Twin

These shapes are predominantly twin and drive the versatile, kill-anything performance of our all-mountain freestyle snowboards. From contact point to contact point (100% of the running length), these board are twins—the shape and core profile in the front part of the board is the same as in the rear part of the board. The non-twin portion comes when the nose and tail start to rise. In this shape, the distance from the front contact point to the tip of the nose is slightly longer than the distance from the rear contact point to the tip of the tail.

Directional

For those all-mountain and powder riders with a strong freeride perspective, our Directional shapes have noses that are longer than tails and flex patterns with more stiffness in the tail. For some of these shapes, we also incorporate taper in the tail so that the nose is wider than the tail. Many times, we match up some of our directional cambers like Free-The-Ride or Powder cambers with these directional shapes. There is nothing twin about the shape of flex of these designs.
