The Rome Marshal Snowboard is much like the mustachioed gentleman who lays down the law; they both oversee their territory with an eagle eye for spicy terrain. If you’re interested in expanding your snowboard horizons, the Marshal is a great place to start thanks to its combination of easy-riding flat profile and stiffer, responsive flex pattern. The SinterStrong Sidewalls and SinterStrong Base will keep you moving at optimal speeds with incredible durability, while carbon stringers and a slightly elongated nose make the Marshal a responsive all-mountain operator that doesn’t shy away from riding out switch.
Response Rating – 7 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Directional Twin – These shapes are predominantly twin and drive the versatile, kill-anything performance of Rome’s all-mountain freestyle snowboards. From contact point to contact point (100% of the running length), these boards are twins — the shape and core profile in the front part of the board is the same as in the rear of the board. The non-twin portion comes when the nose and tail start to rise. In this shape, the distance from the front contact point to the top of nose is slightly longer than the distance from the rear contact point to tip of the tail.
FiveGnar Side-cut – To add a lively, responsive feel to Rome’s flat-camber boards, Rome designed a complimentary side-cut that features two different side-cut radii used in five distinct zones of the board. The zones under the front and back feet are the same, while the zones in the nose, tail and the middle of the board are all the same tighter radius side-cut. All zones are blended into each other to make one smooth arc that is not interrupted by “bumps.” With a tighter radius in the nose, tail and mid section, the board engages more actively, feels tighter in the middle of a turn and finishes the turn with more pop.
