The park solution for the wide-of-foot jibber.
Attention big-footed park rats: the Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard is your dream come true. Featuring a true twin shape, super buttery flex, and Rome's JibPop Rocker camber, this board is built specifically for park rats and jib monkeys. The board's JibPop Rocker camber features a small flat section in between the binding inserts for balancing on rails. The rest of the board is rockered, from just before the inserts out to the tip and tail. This makes for easy presses and an extremely buttery flex. And with its wider waist, the Artifact Rocker Wide takes your mind off toe- and heel-drag so you can focus on the park.
Beefing up the durability of a board that's built to be destroyed through grinding and jibbing, Rome has added Glass Impact Plates underneath the bindings to reinforce the core. A 4mm glass HotRod has also been inserted into the core for spring-loaded ollies and nollies.
Adding a bit more edge hold to a super-buttery board is crucial, and Rome has placed a Quickrip sidecut on the Artifact Rocker to give it more grip when you're hauling down icy park runs. This technology also allows your board to turn like a more playful, shorter board when you're riding at slow speeds.

There is a reason the Artifact rocker has been in the Rome line for so long....it one of the best park/rail boards out there. This year the Artifact Rocker has a great new tip and tail shape to help reduce swing weight and some new tech in the Rebound Sidewalls. The rebound sidewall is an elastic material that helps absorb impact on rails and concrete...the stuff is amazing. Mix that with the Impact base, and Impact edges and you have a solid rail and street board.
