Powerful freestyle traditionalist.
A favorite of freestyle riders who prefer the powerful feel of traditional camber, the Rome Agent Snowboard specializes in boosting off massive jumps, popping natural hits, and straight-lining steeps. This highly versatile freestyle stick is slightly directional in shape, meaning that it's centered between the contact points with a slightly bigger nose for added stability at high speeds and enhanced float.
Stay Positive camber gives the Agent a poppy, powerful feel when you're treating the mountain like one giant park. As if that's not enough, the folks at Rome engineered the Agent with a SuperPop Core Matrix for tons of pop off jumps and natural features in the backcountry. This core consists of long-grain poplar and three zones of low-density wood for a lively flex pattern that's prime for snapping off kickers and natural windlips.
Reinforcing the board at the tip and tail, Carbon Single Barrel Turborods provide a bit more landing gear for stomping huge jumps. Plus, these snappy carbon rods allow you to pre-load the nose and tail for boosting huge nollies and ollies. Going one step further, Rome added a one-inch strip of Zylon down the center for even more pop and increased longitudinal power. Zylon is a material that's lighter, stronger, and snappier than carbon (hard to believe, right?), giving you maximum control for blasting at serious speeds and launching huge kickers.

The Agent is quite possibly the best all-mountain snowboard EVER. It is incredibly stable and durable with tons of pop. The Almost Twin shape helps it float in powder and the new TurboRods add a ton of energy to turns and insane ollie power.
