Neither was ROME SDS - read here to find out a little more about this grass roots anti - establishment snowboarder focused company and their 2020 lineup, now stocked at MSC!
Rome SDS was founded by Josh Reid and Paul Maravetz who wanted to start their own snowboard company, with the aim of improving on the mediocre stuff other companies were releasing at the time.
To this day ROME has helped to drive snowboarding counter culture, embracing the snowbums, park rats, pow slasher, outcasts & true characters that have given birth to the sport we all know and love today.
With a strong focus on rider driven testing & even more solid team backing including the likes of Laurent-Nicolas Paquin, Stale Sandbech and Rene Rinnekangas you know their boards are getting put through their paces.
