Ride it all and ride it hard on the Anthem.

Rome built the directional Anthem Snowboard for riders who want a kick-ass high-end board that can stick with them no matter where they tear it up. If you start off the day by throwing down hard in the park but may end up hucking yourself off a backcountry cliff before last chair (or vice versa), then here's your board. The Anthem's Airpop Core Matrix core with glass and carbon laminate kills it in edge-to-edge transitions and decreases the board's weight for easier spins. Bamboo inserts give you crazy pop in the park and pipe without causing too much torsional rigidity. This all-mountain board's super-fast SinterSpeed base give you greased-lightning glide for throwing the sickest tricks over the biggest gaps.

i have a size 12 boot. should i buy this board?

Responded on

Go With the Rome slash. It's basically the same board just a little wider. It's what I have and I ride a 12 boot also.

Responded on

The Flag is the wider version of the Anthem. Get that one.

Does anyone know what the edge bevel on...

Posted on

Does anyone know what the edge bevel on this is? The 2010 is 1/1 Mountain but the 2009 catalog says 2/2 Park. Did they really change this or maybe this was a misprint in the 2009 catalog? I have contacted Rome and have not heard anything.

Responded on

I emailed Rome and they informed me that the 2/2 bevel was a misprint in the 2009 catalog, and the 2009 anthem has a 1 bevel just as the 2010 does.

awesome pow/jump board.

this board has been my go to board for 4 years now. its sturdy enough to take core shots from the shitty fall/late spring conditions and yet sinister speed base(if you take care of it). it is a stiff board. one of the stiffest on the rome line. i dont ride rails or boxes but it is definitely a jumper. hit 30-40 foot booters on this bad boy and landing was a breeze. just know that this is a directional, and it sucks not being able to land or ride switch, but on pow days and booter days this board stands alone.

rome is ok

this board is ok for like powder with great handling but if u are going to ride park not good because of the rockers dont flex enough so hit it to hard and u might just be out of a snowboard for the season

Can an intermediate rider who is going to be really good get away with riding this board? 6' 2" 190 lbs. SIze 11 foot or is it too much board... NH rider....

Best Answer Responded on

little cocky there cat. this will probably do you fine, its not too advanced, but will hold up when you get "really good". grab the 162 for all mountian, or the 156 for park, and go back up ur talk

Responded on

yea u can .. if your really going to get really good then the advanced should be good for you

Responded on

yes u should get one they have great pop for jumps and rails

Responded on

noah is dumb. this board does have great pop fer jumps. is like a plank on rails. good for high speeds, groomers and prolly pow and jumps

I took this board on a demo, coming off a Burton Custom. It's pretty stiff torsionally, which results in pretty strong edge hold: you can really lay out some hard carves. It's also snappy in between the bindings and you can get some good ollies out of it. The nose and the tail feel soft and buttery, but you probably don't want to butter this board unless you have precise edge control. The board likes to be aggressive and you need energy to ride it -- if you don't pay attention, it will throw you. I think the board needs a little more dampening for choppy, cruddy stuff, but that's really my only complaint. It feels fairly light, too.

"Rides fine but..." ...you never want to have to say that.

This board is stiff. I disagree entirely from anyone who says otherwise. Compared to other boards I've ridden this year (the Rome Postermania, the Ride DH, the Lib Skate Banana.. bla bla) it's stiff. That means it holds an edge well but is a bit out of it's element in choppy stuff, so try to stay away or you will feel a bit beat up by the end of the day. On the bright side, it is nice to slash turns through powder with, but make sure you've gotten a long model because the float is about average, even for a directional board. As a whole, it does feel stable (none of that triple-base nonsense washing your turns out *ahem* -->battalion<--) but in my opinion stable isn't enough - I'd like to feel PLANTED. Perhaps it's the waist on the board, which is narrow enough to make riding it with size 10 or larger boots a bit of a chore. (Before you flame me out about this review, I will admit that a wide version is made that I have not ridden yet, and that would undoubtedly remedy this problem.) But in spite of the simple, tried-and-true design, I'm just not convinced. And there's another problem.

I had last year's model of the Anthem and within three months of riding, the topcoat chipped off on an area of the tail about 1" x 2" wide for no reason at all. I returned it and had it replaced with the newer model at no cost to me, which I was very pleased about. Unfortunately, almost the same thing happened on the opposite side of the tail within about 6 weeks with the new one. I was even walking through REI a few days ago and saw another Anthem returned for the same reason - and on sale for 86 bucks! This seems like a chronic problem and that, frankly, is unacceptable. Granted, it doesn't technically interfere with the board's performance, but who wants to ride around on a board that looks 5 seasons old when it's actually brand new??

I'd like to say that I rode this board and had the time of my life because I like Rome as a company, despite the fact that they never mailed me my die-cut sticker when I sent the business reply mail envelope in to them when I bought it new. However, even though I like the company and they truly do make other good boards, I wouldn't recommend this one to a friend. In fact, I prefer my Gnu Rider's choice 154.5 to my Anthem 162 in almost any condition. Imagine that.

Super fun!

I was a firm believer in Burton but have moved over to Rome, I love this board. I am a all mountain rider so I went for the Anthem being a high end directional board. This board holds edges with ease and transitions rail to rail with no problem. Super fun all mountain ride. The majority of my friends ride park so I spend a lot of time there as well, This is a super poppy, very stable board. Love it!

Love It

This is my first board so I really don't know if I qualify as an evaluator, but in my opinion this board is great.

ROME is legit

This board is awesome. I didn't find it too stiff, just solid and fast as hell. It's seriously the fastest base I have ever ridden, I was flying past people on the cat tracks while others were pushing. I went rinding at Snow Summit...bleh, not much snow and it was choppy too, this board held an edge all day long. Totally stoked on ROME!

i received this board as a replacement for last years anthem, which delaminated on me after about 2 months. I rode this years about 7 times before the edge started separating from the top sheet, then after about 12 rides the edge behind my front foot caved in. I dont even plan on sending this piece back because i dont want another crappy replacement.

im about 5'11" with 10.5 to 11 feet will this board be good for me or would i need to go with a wide board

Responded on

This may be a little on the narrow side for you...At a 10.5-11.0 I'd suggest a board with a waist width of 250-259mm.

Anybody ride this versus the Agent? Any noticable differences? Pro's/Con's of Both?

Responded on

The Anthem is directional and stiffer then the agent. The agent is a twinish board (the nose is slightly longer then the tail) and not as stiff. Anthem is more all mountain/freeride while agent is all mountain/park. Both are great boards.

good board

love the board though I did not feel much difference between this board and my firefly board. this board is very durable, though the top sheet chips easy.
bottom line I would definitely recommend this board to a friend

I love it but

I am not into really stiff boards anymore. It's waaaay stiff. In the pow if you go extra long, I can see it being fun. I took it out for that purpose and then the forecast did not come through so I was riding it in hard pack. It will stick with you for sure. It just was not for me. I love the agent which is way more flexy. But if stiff decks are what you are after with precision handling at high speeds you have found heaven at last.
