Description

The choice is yours.

There are other choices of super-buttery park boards built just for dudes with big feet other than the Rome Artifact Rocker Wide Snowboard, but that is like choosing to eat gravel and drink fish juice rather than a fresh batch of cheddar-flavored popcorn and ice-cold fruit punch. Revered by park rats as the loosest board out there, the Artifact Rocker speaks for itself. New additions include the carbonized pop of Hot Rods, the playful yet precise QuickRip sidecut, and the resilient Impact base to make it even more enticing.
  • JibPop Rocker is a loose, jib-specific rocker profile with a stable flat section in the waist and rockered tips that extend all the way past the inserts
  • QuickRip sidecut technology uses a special geometry which rides loose and remains playful when going slow, but is also quick and nimble with higher speeds
  • Hot Rods make for great ollies and nollies with the strategic placement of two carbon rods milled into the core of both the nose and the tail
  • Glass Impact Plates under the bindings provide twice the impact-resistance from harsh landings, prolonging the life of your board
  • Impact Core Matrix is a light but strong composite impregnated core made up of 40% smooth-flexing wood fibers that's easy on the environment and withstands impact from hefty jibs
  • Impact Base is a specially made extruded compound that can take the abuse of rails, walls, boxes, and rocks

FINALLY!!

i have been waiting a long ass time for Rome to make this board.. and i am not disappointed at all. easy to throw around, presses so easy and has plenty of pop.. i thought this would be a park only board, but i will be using all over the place..

It's the softest deck we've got - probably around a 2 or 3 from 1 - 10

Butterlicious, surprisingly poppy fun

Bought this expecting a wet-noodle jib stick, but it's actually really fun for pretty much any type of freestyle riding. Not my first choice for ice or deep pow, but the QuickRip sidecut is legit and offers much better control than a lot of other rocker boards out there. I actually de-tuned the binding zones where the extra contact points sit because it was almost too grabby at times. Presses super easily, with improved pop over previous Artifacts I've ridden. Perfect park-rat board that's more than capable of riding other stuff too.

Can these boards handle big jumps too? I see a lot of specs that are helpful for jibs but I also do a good amount of jumps and need a board that can handle a 60' kicker. Its been 4 seasons since ive had a new board so i need some good advice for a board thats gonna be able to handle a beating

If you're used to riding rocker boards on big kickers, you'll be fine. The 2012 version is less noodley than the previous Artifacts have a reputation for being, in my opinion. It still feels a bit washy on landings when compared to camber boards, but look at Johnny Lazz's part in The Shred Remains—he's boosting some massive jumps on this thing.

I weigh roughly 130lbs, 5'10". So should I get a 152"? And I'm also going to buy some Burton Custom Bindings, would they work with this board?

Responded on

i go for it.. but i would get some different bindings. Rome mob or 390s

my 158 artifact just came in, board is sick man cant wait to ride..

Responded on

Rome 390 bindings are the greatest just in case you were wondering. I think that size of board would work, just depends on what you want to do with it, I find shorter boards easier for tricks.

Responded on

Burton Customs will work fine, just make sure the binding hardware isn't bottoming out in the board's inserts and dimpling your base. I think Burton bindings may have thinner baseplates or something...I had to go with shorter 14mm screws to put my Missions on this board, down from the 16mm screws that came with my bindings. But the 390s would be a great match for this, too.
