Power where you need it, playful where you want it.
Powerful response meets playful, catch-free fun. The Rome CrossRocket Snowboard dissects anything you throw its way, slaying park kickers and floating through freshies with ease. Rome's NoHang-Ups Pop Camber gives you the best of both rocker and camber. This profile combines positive, diamond-shaped camber extending from the board's center to approximately 10-millimeters shy of the contact points, with a 3D concave rocker at the tip and tail. Ultimately, this hybrid profile gives you the powerful precision of a full camber deck with a really loose, surfy feel at the nose and tail.
Looking inside this all-terrain beast, you'll find a Super Pop Core Matrix for tons of snap off kickers, cliffs, and natural windlips. Carbon Single Barrel HotRods extend outward from the inserts to the tip and tail, giving you explosive ollie power without added torsional stiffness. New for this year, Rome added their Z-Tech 1.0 into the center of the CrossRocket. This one-inch strip of Zylon also enhances the board's pop without increasing torsional stiffness. Zylon is lighter, stronger, and snappier than carbon (hard to believe, right?), giving you insane levels of pop when you're sending jumps and hits into oblivion.

A lot of people throw around the "one board quiver" title, but the Crossrocket is the real deal. I've ridden the 158 and the 161 and they are both a blast to ride. Camber between the feet for a predictable/stable ride, then the rolled up contact points keep the board loose and floaty in deeper snow. I rode the 158 at Loveland last season on the best testing day ever. Crushed groomers in the morning, then got on the Ridge Snowcat when it opened at 11am and rode 18 inches of new snow. I was worried the Crossrocket wouldn't have the float I needed, but I was so wrong. After the first turn I knew the Crossrocket had my back.
