Description

Rome’s team riders can’t get enough of it.

Hook up the Rome Artifact Snowboard before you bomb the next stonewall, latch on to a local school’s rails, or mess with a tub-a-lard rent-a-cop at the town library. The vagrant’s choice, this board rocks a positive camber to give you extra pop in the nose and tail for your ollies, while the Bronze Edge locks you on to the next ledge, rail or box without catching.
  • Pop Core Matrix offers a less weight and a smooth flex
  • Impact Base brings durability and speed
  • Bronze Edges gives you a crack-resistant, catch-free ride
  • Jib Bevel uses an extra bevel to minimize snags on rails
  • Positive Camber traditional camber delivers edge-to-edge energy transfer and extra pop in the nose and tail

Fun Board

I am not the best snowboarder in the world. In fact I am a skier. I have only snowboarded a handful of times in my life. But this board is really easy to get the hang of. It handles all groomers extremely well. It is pretty poppy. Great for a beginner to get their hands on and ride but still great for an advanced park rider to ride park on all day. It is soft enough that when I ride more off-piste terrain in choppy terrain it doesn't handle that great..but that is not what this board is for, so who cares? Oh, and mine is the 2007 version..not sure how much different it is than this one...I think its basically the same but with 30mm more of effective edge.

im 5'10 170 pounds. i almost always ride park. should i get the 153 or 156?

Responded on

It depends if you are hitting more jumps or rails. If you are leaning towards 30 ft. plus jumps then grab the 156, if you are hitting jumps under that and a lot of rails grab 153 either way you will be stoked.

rome artifact or DC PBJ? need some buttery action, anyone got an idea which one is shreddier???

Best Answer Responded on

I would say that the Artifact is a tad softer but doesnt lose any pop due to the popcore matrix. The PBJ is a sick stick aswell. But im just partial to Rome as I ride one aswell. I just think Rome puts a lot into their boards and you're not just paying for a name. Like I said tho, the PBJ is a sick deck tho. Has lots of pop, good flex, and pretty much deals with everything you throw at it. My buddys PBJ snapped on him 3 weeks into riding from droppin out a 15ft shoot. So I dunno if he just caught it weird or at the right spot, but its gone lol. DC makes great product, I just buy more of their clothing rather than their decks, but thats just me. But I would def say get the Artifact as i've demoed both

Responded on

there both in the same ballpark as lower pricerange soft cambered park decks. ive ridden both, and i agree with the guy above me completely except one thing. the dc pbj has one of the fastest and most durable bases in the snowboard market. they are putting insane bases onto all their boards that are usually only found in +$800 boards. so id say if your good at tuning, waxing, and filling cracks and scrapes, go with the rome 100%. if your new to tuning and that stuff, the dc is a safer bet as far as a reliable board goes. plus dc honors their warranty insanely good.

im trying to decide wether to get the artifact or go with the graft, i ride mostly park but still go all over the mountain and id say im an intermediate to advanced rider, what board is best for me? is it also too skinny for my size 11 feet?

Responded on

ooo...tough decision. both are pretty amazing boards and you will definitely be happy with either. the only thing is the issue with the size 11 boot. kinda cutting it close for both of these boards, especially if you to like to take it out away from the park and all around the mountain. if you wanna try a wide board i can recommend the rome slash. it can do just about anything...and not in a newbie kind of way either. u can catch big air, float on pow, shred the pistes and its even light enough for some good jib action. its like that dude who is really good at everything...so good that everyone else hates him. yea, thats the slash...just minus the hating :)

im stuck beetween this board and the forum manual i want a board with good flex and super easy to press but can still hold its own on decent sized jumps what should i do

Responded on

go with the artifact for sure it will be better on rail/boxes for sure and will be about the same on jumps as the forum manual

Responded on

Definately go for the Artifact. In my opinion a way better built board than the Manual. It will hold up longer, give you better pop and flex and is just an all around killer. Also ive had a few forums to test(young blood and the seeker) and have found Forum to be not so great. Base completely seperated on the yb where they over-lay one piece of p-tex to the next, not cool. So yes go for the Artifact as its a better board and company to go with. Not saying that Forum is a crapo company, but after those decks, i have very little faith in them. I ride a Rome and its gonna be hard to go back to anything else

I want this board, and im 5,6" 145lbs, should i get a 150 or 156, cos i dont want pink

Responded on

150 if u ride park and 156 if u ride pow/ any thing out side of park because the 150 has a sicker color way and its better to go down a size 4 park then up for jibs and such

Posted on

i wanna get this board, im about 148 pounds and i ride the park, i dont want that pink board either, the 150cm will be ok for me right?

Responded on

if ur done growing it should be ok for jebbing and maybe small jumps but it will get a little crazy at high speeds and it will suck for jumps, cuz ur not going to get any real pop but if ur just hitting rails u should be ok id still go 153 but if u really dont want pink then go head and go 150 it will be a little small but i have a fried thats about 145-150 and round a 144 around for most of the season after he broke his artifact. But if ur not 100% sure on this board id go with the DC PBJ 153 (if u can find it) thats what i ride and im 6'1" 155lbs and it works great on jumps and rails and it still handles in powder just fine

I was hoping to buy an artifact but the waists are too thin for my gangly feet... Is it possible to order a wider board some how?

Responded on

I personally ride the Rome Machine 154w and I love it. I have strapped on the Artifact just to press it out to see the flex and its just a little softer than the Machine. You could also try the Postermania in wide aswell, but its a reverse camber. But just like Daku said, the Machine will do you just right

What type of wrocker is this?

What type of wrocker is this?

Responded on

in n'y a pas rocker pour cette planche. In other words, this is a positive camber boards; without rocker. Check the profile here: http://www.romesnowboards.com/product/boards/artifact/

The board you amy be seeking is the Artifact 1985, it is flat inbetween the feet and rockered outwards. making the Artifact even more buttery. Check it's profile here:

sweeeet

its the best board ive ever rode. its super buttery, but it still has good pop. ive been taking it to some pretty big jumps so its good for that. the bronze edges are a big plus too cuz they dont cath very easy

What board should i get if im looking for a fun buttery board thats great in the park but also hold up in the mountain? Rome? Skate Banana? or Forum young blood chilly dog?

Responded on

id go with the forum chilly dog its light and poppy and can handle in some pow as long as its not to deep good it the park super soft like my buddy is 5' 4" and he rides a 156cm in the park and he still calls it a soft board so that should tell u a little bit about how soft it is. But it still has plenty of pop.
SO IN SHORT GO WITH THE FORUM YOUNG BLOOD CHILI DOG

Responded on

the skate banana is one option but it can be chattery when your going mach 1... Never Summer EVO is a good option the camber at the tip and tail gives you stability in the park and when your going fast

Rome Artifact, Burton Hate, or Stepchild Everything Sucks?

I'm really stuck on picking a board. I stick to the park most of the day, except for when I'm on a mountain that is actually worthy of riding, but i have my burton blunt for that. help?

Best Answer Responded on

this board is fun for like the first 30 days. it had great pop and fun on rails but then it went downhill. my topsheet peeled back, sidewall is disappearing and i can see core. also it lost all its pop and literally i can only ollie as high as i can lift my knees. for $370,even now at $300, you can get a better board. but if you can wait til it goes down to around $200 then it would be a good deal. espesh since you have another board so you wont ride it everyday. its an amazing board up to the point when it wears out. i loved it until now. hope that helps a little. the everything sucks will be a bit stiffer but more durable

I wanna compare this board to any of the pbj dc boards, what r the diferences between them, also i ride size 147 but my weight is like 90lbs so should i go smaller towards the size that best fits my weight even though it'll be short??

Best Answer Responded on

ya id go with the DC PBJ kids board and rock out about a 135 if ur doing a lot of park riding or if ur just craven all day u should be ok with a144 but id still go with the DC PBJ because it has more pop and has a steel edge for out side the park ridin' in short DC all the way

How different is this years model from last?

No real change except for the graphics.

Responded on

and its reverse camber which is a pretty big difference

Responded on

Hey andrew its not reverse camber thats the 1885 board just a heads up

Responded on

There's not a lot of change between the models. This years seems to be a bit better on impacts, top sheet seems a bit better quality and is still a box and rail killer. And no its not rocker, thats the 1985 version. Anything 1985 from Rome is their rocker line-up
