Ride to the anthem of the syndicate.
- Hybrid Camber technology dishes out the same pop of traditional camber while the rocker camber engages to raise the tip and tail and deliver a soft, forgiving feel
- Airpop Core uses ultralight wood with added bamboo for strength so you get the power and flex you need without the added weight
- StraightTriax45 laminate sheet has naturally forgiving tip-to-tail flex while off-axis fibers create torsional strength for hold during high-speed turns on hard snow
- Super-light and incredibly strong KEVLAR� Impact Plates underfoot create a stable, nearly indestructible core
- Carbon V Powerbars channel energy from your bindings to the board ends to add pop in takeoffs, landings, and slashes
- PressurePop technology utilizes super-strong yet lightweight Kevlar plates to transmit energy from your bindings to the board edges for maximum hold at high speed

hey guys I am 5'3 anyone know if it's a good idea for me to get the 157cm size for this? or will it be too big for me still?
Height only has a little to with sizing up ur deck. Its mainly based on weight and how big of a deck you like to ride and what you mainly ride, ie park, pipe, groomers etc. Seeing as its a directional deck, im guessing you mainly ride groomers or pow? How much do you weigh? If ur 5'3, then the 157 is too big for you, unless you like riding a huge deck. I would put you on a 152 for a good solid all around ride but wont be a hassel in the park if you decided to rip through. A little bigger if you mainly ride the pow, and the same(152) or possibly smaller if you mainly ride park. But seeing as it is a hybrid camber board, you are able to ride something a little shorter in comparison to a traditional cambered deck. So if you usually ride a 155, you could technically drop to lets say a 152 and you wont notice much of a difference. So in comparison to me, im 6' 170lbs and I ride a 154W. Hope this helps
this thing rips!
only 2 days on it so far but am loving it!
super stiff and responsive
the faster you go the more it grips
my second Rome board let's see if this one stays together
Rome Anthem '57
(First things first I am a bit of a Rome fan, ever since I got a Solution in '05, and I love my Agent in the park).
Out the box I was surprised how light the Anthem is, and whilst I've never bought a board based on the graphics, this one has an awesome design - there's even an extra layer of black detailing that you can only see when the light's right. Not really a deal-maker, but a nice plus.
On the slopes the board is so stiff and so responsive even the smallest input gives you instant direction change, and the board grips the tightest turns without breaking out. If there is a downside to this, it's that you can ride at insane speeds with a lot of confidence - definitely not recommended for relatively new riders.
I've only had a couple of kickers to play with (early season), but this board has tonnes of pop, it changes direction very easily, and I feel equally at home riding switch on it - surprising for a directional board.
Overall, a stunning board - couldn't be happier.
