The 2023 Rome Artifact is the next chapter for the original park board. The go-to for team riders and park rats when they're looking to get creative and playful, the Artifact boasts a softer flex along with a stable yet easy to press camber profile, plus all new Flax Impact Plates to make the board more durable and absorb impact so you can push through the abuse of sliding, bonking, and inevitably crashing into any feature in the park and out.
Board Type: Park
Camber Type: Stay Positive Camber
Stay Positive Camber (aka traditional camber) is the original camber profile, delivering a powerful and predictable feeling with unmatched pop and response.
Flex: 4/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
Shape: True Twin
True twin snowboards are 100% symmetrical with an identical nose and tail. The flex pattern and sidecut is uniform throughout, and will feel the same whether you are riding switch or regular, so you can jib, jump and spin with ease!
Core: Stomp Core
The Stomp Core is the most stable and predictable core from Rome, made with 100% poplar wood.
Twin Single Bamboo Hotrod
Bamboo Hotrods are thin rods of bamboo milled into the boards core, giving the board a pressable and playful feeling. This configuration inlays a rod in the centreline of the board in the nose and tail, maintaining a pressable yet poppy board personality.
90 degree fibres that give the board a more mellow and torsionally playful feel.
Flax Impact Plates
These full woven flax constructed plates covers and reinforces the insert pack and are designed to make the boards more durable. Flax Impact Plates help absorb impact and add increased strength without changing the boards flex pattern.
Base: PowerSlide Base
The PowerSlide base is made of a new base material that features improved wax absorption and increased durability.
Double Kick - This board features double kick, which is an aggressive, two-part rise in the nose and/or tail, designed to increase pressability and improve landings.
