All-terrain versatility, perfected.
Designed with Rome's StraightBiax Carbon laminate, the Heist has plenty of pop to snap off jumps and launch natural windlips above treeline, thanks to a healthy dose of infused carbon. And since the board only uses biax fiberglass, it still retains its buttery feel with ample torsional flex for jibbing and pressing through the park. Adding even more ollie power, the board's HotRods-Bamboo Single Barrel places a rod of snappy Bamboo down the center of the board, acting as a springing board for boosting off everything in sight.
Utilizing Rome's QuickRip sidecut for added grip on icy, hardpacked days, the Heist has two additional mid-board contacts that grip phenomenally when conditions are less than optimal. In addition, the board's SinterTrue base is super-quick, absorbing a ton of wax for high-speed performance all over the mountain. It's also tougher than cheaper extruded bases, withstanding scrapes from rocks, rails, and natural features hidden under the snow.

The Gold's little sister
The Heist is a really fun, softer version of the Gold board from Rome. Both have the same hybrid rocker/camber, but the Heist feels a little less aggressive. It is meant for an intermediate rider who wants to progress to the next level or someone looking for a softer all mountain snowboard. Either way, the Heist is a great board at a great price.
