Description

The Rome Artifact 1985 Snowboard takes jibbing into the reverse camber dimension.

The Rome Artifact 1985 proves that reverse camber is the new hot sauce. This reverse camber, super-flexible, snappy-as-hell Rome banger adds spicy jibs, hot butters, and peppery presses to your buffet. Rome mapped carbon strips onto the tip and tail of this twin-tip jibstick to give the Artifact 1985’s ollies extra pop. A hard extruded base maintains its integrity even after constant abuse on metal and wood, so you can get saucy all season with only minimal maintenance required. Rome gave the Artifact 1985 bronze edges—smooth, naturally rounded edges that avoid hang-ups on rails and transitions. Peep the scratch-off graphics and use friction to stay warm on the lift.

what determines the length you should go with?
im 5 7'
although i am only 110 pounds(im very lean)
what would be a good length?

i was thinking the vibrant blue, i think its 153...not sure though

Responded on

Hey it all determines on what you like to ride and where you ride it.
I have 3 boards that i really enjoy riding. Rome graft 149, Rome Agent 152 and the rome Artifact 150.
There all awesome boards and there all different sizes

Im around the same hight you are, but im 5'8

I really enjoy my rome agent because the tail and nose is not to short and i butter up the park
and get some mad pop

I currently ride my graft thought more often
and it a great board but its a lil smaller so i cant butter like i do with my agent

but my artifact is just the right size for every thing.
But watch out, the bronze edges will wear on you the second year. and its definitely not the greatest for jumps

but if you like to jib a lot its a dream come true

Level UP

I agree with everything "The Guy" said. Instantly improves every aspect of your park game. Everyone knows this. What impressed me the most was the amount of control it had over the entire mountain - especially in deep in the trees. Granted it will not slice through corduroy, but do not sell this stick short. The reverse camber easily keeps the nose up and floats with the best of em. At high speed, feels much more like wake boarding than riding, a lot more long slides than deep carves. Yet it is very responsive and an absolute blast to ride. Tack on that it is impossible to catch an edge and it makes for one of the most fun and versatile decks year round. Buy it. Donate sperm.

HEY i love the look of this board the neon pink is so cool! im a girl btw! but the problem is iim small and im worried the 147 wont fit me! witch rly sucks cause i want this board so bad! tell me what u think im 4"9 and about 95 lbs could the 147 fit!? it would be my first board but i alrdy no how to snowboard i love the park so im lookin for a good park board to help me get better at my jumps and ramps so what do u think!?

Responded on

147 seems really long for a 95 lbs girl for park. also, if by "ramps" you mean pipe, rockered boards are not the best. at your size you might actually be better off a kid's deck, or on the very short end of a girl's deck. sorry

Responded on

renne a 147 would be way to big for you due to what this board is made for. it is sweet and youd prolly look hot ridin with it but like pk said check girl boards. this will be to wide and big and you wount be able to flex right. check the k2 va va voom rocker. its a rocker jib-board designed for girls and you might like it

does this board really have the pop of the normal non-reverse camber artifact? i feel like since it is reverse camber, it wont be as poppy.

Best Answer Responded on

reverse camber boards naturaly have less pop than camber boards, but it sounds like this is about as good as it gets for pop on RC boards

Responded on

From my understanding, it's got more pop then the standard Artifact. And that is because of the carbon Rome put in the tip and tail of the 1985. My brother loves his 1985, his favorite board he has ever been on.

Responded on

Not true Cyrus Baumgarten.... it depends on the manufacturer. For instance I'm riding the Ride Crush, and it is probably stiffer than the DH if it was a cambered board, but since it is RC, it flexes right, and has crazy amounts of pop. From what I've heard the Artifact 1985, as well as the Crush, have carbon in the tip and tail in some form or the other (idk what form Rome has, but Ride uses the crossing stringers). One thing you will lose is edge hold vs. a cambered board, unless you get into the Never Summer EVO with the combination RC and regular camber. Just make sure you read up on the board you are looking to buy, I've had Rome and loved it, and I love my Ride, Forum and Technine are coming out with their own Reverse Camber designs for the 09/10 season so keep an eye out for those because they are probably dank as hell, I would recommend staying away from the Signal Park Rocker though, that thing is just goofy (way too much RC, to the point that the board doesn't flatten out when you stand on it).

how is the artifact on the rest of the mountain? can i still make it back down the mountain ha

Best Answer Responded on

hey hey...this is probably one of the worst boards for all mountian riding. with the reverse camber (edges dont touch snow except for right in the middle) and the pre rouded edges, thats a bad story. first you have no edge contact to start with and then once you get some, your edges are round!!!...yes you can probably make it down the down the mountain, but you wont have much control, your edges wont have any bite and will slip out from under you very easily, turning will be slow and tedious and you will be constantly worried that your board will slip out from under your feet.....i would not reccomend it uless you are just riding from terrain park to terrain park :-)

Responded on

I must disagree. After riding my Artifact 1985 for an entire season, I must say it can easily take on all-mountain. Granted it does not bite into the snow, but the deck can pull high speed turns and is easily controllable. And as for powder or back country, the reverse camber is a dream. Keeps the nose up and floats with no lean required. Truly a great board and I believe it gets pigeon-holed as many park decks do.

Guilty

I'm guilty of no effort butter and presses. I'm guilty of attracting boys with my 'bent over babe' board (I'm a girl). I'm guilty of having the sickest board I have ever ridden. And for those ice coast riders, have no fear, I just rode on Tremblant on one of the iciest weekends and the edges still cut in just fine ... Perhaps it's in the process of rounding out? Cheapest reverse camber board you'll find. Extra poppolocious goodness.

Responded on

great on kickers or any park feature you want to take it on

Responded on

It kills them. Very forgiving on landings especially when needing to butter the last half of a spin as you connect to the snow. Dominates anything park.

Heaven between your legs. On Snow.

i've been looking for this board forever. poppy enough to lip onto my coffee table standing still. mellow enough to press better than i ever have my entire life. don't lean, just lift the foot. buttter concrete without snow man, not even kidding you. with this board, i tap more on a ten foot box than you do on a thirty. anybody looking for the next thing in boarding, this is it. Stop looking at others and considering your options. if this isn't in your budget, make it in your budget. donate blood or sperm or something.

its that good

get silly

this board is crazy. i do butters when i dont even mean to cuz it has so much flex! i was an ok jibber but when i switched to this board i got 5x better instantly! pretty bad in the BC though, it doesnt cut well because of the brass edge. but if you want a park board, this is the choice fo sho

Bent over!

Super sick! I used to ride last years Artifact and I loved it, but I wanted to try this reverse camber. I was a little hesitant on buying it because I couldn't find any good reviews but it was the best choice I made. Easier to press and butter than the regular Artifact, but it has more pop! A little sketchy off bigger booters but that is expected with a small, soft board. If you are thinking about getting this at all then you should fo sho!
Peace
