    The Agent was constructed with the Superpop Core Matrix and the Straight Triax 230 Carbon laminate to give you a board that is superlight, smooth and has a ton of pop. The SinterSpeed Base is know as one of the fastest wax absorbing bases that really cranks. With this base you will not have a problem getting enough speed to clear the big gap jump.

    To make this a great park board Rome has used their technology of Impact Plates, Impact Edges, and Park Edge Profiling making the jumps of rails and boxes easier. With this technology you takeoffs and ladings will be smoother, while you do nit have to worry about beating up the base and edges of your board.

    Rome Artifact

    May 5, 2008

    The Rome Artifact is a FreeStyle snowboard that can be used on the whole mountain, but it is known for its excellence in the park and jibbing. The boards design was led by Rome Team rider Casey Neefus. Casey is know to be one of those riders that loves to have fun, so you can see why people say this is one of the most fun boards to ride.

    Riders love this board for jibbing as the it has a soft flex in the tip and tail to make those nose presses off the rails and boxes super easy. When jib ridding you want a board that has a nice flex, but also has some stability between the feet for balance. Rome has done a great job to give rides as solid feel between you feet and some nice flex to make this a fun board for the park.

    Even though this is an all-mountain board you are best to keep this in the park and for jibbing.  The board is loved for jibbing as it is supper soft and light and a soft board does not always fear well on the rest of the mountain.

    Features of The Rome Artifact Snowboard:

    • Shape – Twin Tip
    • Pop Core Matrix – Consistent, dynamic flex
    • StraightBiax Laminate – A soft torsional flex for control on rails and jumps
    • Impact Base – Speed with added resistance to rail abuse
    • Bronze Edges – Smoother, catch-free rail performance
    • Jib Edge Profiling – Maximum bevel for no hang-ups on rails
