High-flying hitman for backcountry booters.
Splitboards have come a long way since the days of being limited to big
powder guns and gigantic swallowtails. Staying true to Rome's
envelope-pushing ethos, the Rome Double Agent Splitboard takes a
freestyle-specific approach to backcountry riding with its almost twin
shape and poppy, carbon-infused construction. Essentially a true twin
between the effective edge— i.e. what touches the snow—the Double Agent
easily rides and lands switch for premier performance off backcountry
kickers and natural features, such as windlips, cliff lines, and pillow
zones. Additionally, a slightly elongated nose helps you plane through
deep powder without submerging or bogging down.
Designed with a FreePop Rocker profile, the Double Agent is flat underfoot for a neutral-feeling board that rides predictably without becoming unnerving or squirrely at high-speeds. Adding a bit more float, especially since the board is sized-down from traditional splits, the nose and tail rocker up, helping you stomp backcountry jumps without ragdolling into powder. The SuperPop Core Matrix feels snappy underfoot with its long Poplar wood segments and three zones of low-density wood. StraightTriax 30 laminates strike a nice balance between responsiveness and easy torsional flex, allowing you to quickly rail turns without the board being unnecessarily stiff. Furthermore, the board's Carbon Double Barrel HotRods consist of snappy carbon tubes that extend to the contacts for enhanced power when you're sending big booters and slashing your way down the mountain. Note that the Double Agent comes with industry-leading Karakoram clips that remove slop along the seam, essentially eliminating high-speed chatter at the tip and tail.

when a park rat rides backcountry...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
if, like me, your inbounds board is a floppy street noodle, ride this board backcountry. it's flexible and light as a feather. with bindings, might even be lighter than my snowshoes? if you're looking for something stiff, keep on looking.
