2023 Rome Vice Snowboard Bindings
Sure, we all have our Vices; for some it’s locked in front boards, others can’t stop ollieing rollers, even some folks like to get up early and pillage fresh corduroy. Versatility comes standard when you pair the surfy feel of Rome's AsymWrap platform with the locked in hold of UltraLight Ankle Straps and ProGrip Toe Straps with a medium flexing highback. Whatever your habit, the Vice is recommended by 10 out of 10 shop kids to help keep you tweaking and slashing.
30% Glass, 70% Nylon
V-Rod Baseplate – Rome combines edge-to-edge power with side-to-side flexibility and improved board flex by reducing the material in contact with your snowboard. Minimum footprint with maximum board feel.
AsymWrap Technology – The flex comes before the pop in this platform. With three points of heel hoop connection and Rome's UnderWrap concept at a single point on the medial side of the toe, the AsymWrap platform focuses on a smooth, flexible feel. This technology is for riders who like to surf freeride terrain and folks who like to tweak and play on freestyle features.
Canted Footbeds - These tilt your feet and therefore your knees inwards towards the center of your snowboard. This alleviates pressure on your knees and increase power transmission through your board.
AsymVice Highback – Lightweight, tweakable yet responsive with an anatomically correct flex pattern.
Full Highback Rotation – Riders have the ability to rotate the highback so it aligns with the heel edge of their board. Being able to adjust the highback provides better power transfer, more tweakability and proper edge hold.
Tool-Free Highback Forward Lean Adjuster
Ultralight Ankle Strap - Cushy and supportive, this lightweight injected EVA ankle strap is built with a dog bone shape for maximum surface area and connected comfort
Progrip Toe Strap - Powered by AuxTech™, this innovative network of small hinges provides unmatched hold and locked-in grip
AuxTech™ - Auxetic patterns are geometric patterns that become thicker perpendicularly when stretched. Think of them as a network of tiny hinges that when pressure is applied, actually expand and open. This creates a more direct connection to the boot.
PivotMount Technology – Every Rome binding comes with 3 or more strap positions so you can customize the level of strap support you want.
Fast Entry – Pre-curved ladders on the ankle and toe straps are designed to pop open and help keep the straps out of your way while getting your boot into the bind
