Is the flex really stiffer than the flex of the 2014 Artifact Rocker?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes,

After looking into the catalogs (and the boards), Rome says the flex on the 2015 will be stiffer than the previous year.

One more question. Is this made in china? Ive heard rome started manufacturing in china. Dont want a chinese made board.
A shopper on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good Day!
That is not necessarily an easy question. Snowboard companies these days tend to manufacture their products in a few locations and countries... not one spot. As a result I cannot speak for all of Rome's boards without looking, but this Artifact Rocker 2015 was made in Austria.
I'm 5'11" 180 lbs, what's the best size for me?
jeffrey s on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends im 5'8" and 185 and i use a 150 its mostly about your weight because these boards are very flexible so personally id say 150cm
what bindings would go well with this board?
austin on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yo Austin,

The Rome Arsenal Bindings would be a great matchup with the Rome Artifact Rocker. Check them out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/rm1ars68ar17zz-rome-snowboard-bindings.html

Another awesome binding is the Union Force bindings, see them HERE: http://www.the-house.com/un1for04blk17zz-union-snowboard-bindings.html
I'm 5'10 and 130 pounds. I currently have a Arbor Formula and need a advanced rider board. Would this be a good board for me?
Justin C on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm roughly the same size as you but a couple inches shorter. I bought the 147 and absolutely love it. I've been snowboarding for 5 years and wanted a nice soft/flexy board for the terrain park and just cruising around, and this board is it! Great pop and it feels really nice under your feet
I am 5'6" 170lbs, should i get the artifact rocker or the camber?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's all about what your looking to ride the most. The differences between the two are more about board reaction opposed to hight and weight. The rocker is a better butter board style that is great for presses and manuals ext with less edge response and poppyness but shreds through fresh powder like a monster. While the other is a poppy King for ollies and kills all mt terrain with ease. I own both and am still getting used to the rocker style of riding and yet still miss my old one. It's tough to answer, both great rides just different feels. You won't be dissapointed with what ever decision you make. Happy shredding!!!!
If I'm a bigger guy should I ride the artifact over the artifact rocker?
Aiicams on Nov 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: By bigger, I assume you mean over 200lbs. Camber boards tend to be better for bigger guys, as there is more spring to load your weight into. So if you are bigger, the Rome Artifact Snowboard would probably make you happier than the Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard. Happy riding!
hello, I am 5'8 138 lbs, will the 150 be a good fit for me or should i go down to the 147? i have a 142 right now and its too small...need an upgrade!
blake on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Blake - 150 for more backcountry/pow riding, and 147 for more park/jib riding!
Would this be a good first board for me?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yeah, I think so!
Hi I recently purchased a Rome artifact rocker 156cm. I'm 5'8" 155 lbs. I bought a 156 cuz my last board was a k2 brigade and it was a 155. I forgot to check the size and fitting chart. Will this Rome be a bad fit?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hey. No, the 156cm is going to fit you well! No worries.
I'm between a size 10-11 boot, would a standard width of this board be the size I want?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will be right on the border. We usually tell people with size 11+ boots that they may want to think about sizing up to wide. It's really a matter of preference, and if you are not sure, I would suggest going out and seeing how a regular board feels and even a wide board if you're interested enough.
hello i am deciding between the lib tech skate banana and rome artifact. i weigh 150-160 pounds. and i am 6' tall. i wear a size 11 boot. wondering if the artifact will have more pop and stability when jumping over the skate banana? and what size i should look for? thanks.
sean a on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Sean. First off, just an FYI that you may want to grab a wide board with that boot size (potential overhang). Now... both are awesome. I think you may be right on the stability topic. Skate Banana is a jib-friendly type of board. For size, look at somewhere between 154cm and 158cm. Smaller is better for park riding, longer for backcountry type stuff.
Will this board slash powder and give me some snap in the park?
Louis C on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes! To both!
will this give me the same feel as a arbor formula board? rocker wise?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi,

because they are different companies, the rocker won't feel exactly the same, but it should feel similar to the arbor formula. If you have been riding rocker boards, you should have no trouble riding the Rome Artifact Rocker.
i noticed that the tip and tail width measurements were a 19, which is very small compared to my last board which was a 29.8. Im wondering if rome boards generally have smaller tip and tail widths and how that would effect my riding?
noah s on Dec 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Noah,

The specs are incorrect. The nose/tail widths vary from 28.9-29.8cm throughout the size range.
How dose a flexy board effect you on jumps?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what kind of jumping you want to do. If you're going to be doing small table tops, side hits, and rollers a soft flex is fun.

But...

If you want to ride HUGE step down jumps, back country booters, and launch off cat tracks a more aggressively stiff board will be better at the high speeds.
Will 0.4 cm in waist width less than recommended for boot size make my toes and heels drag? Or will the miniscule difference not matter ? My boot have shrinkage reducton tech too
eric p on Sep 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Eric,
Good question. The toe and heel reduction will alleviate your problem with drag. Even if you had normal boots and you 'duck' your stance a little... you would be fine.
i am about 5'10 and 155 lbs, i want a true twin park board that is super flexy. suggestions?
Jo-jo007 on Jan 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard is great for park, flexy, but still has some pop.The artifact also all mountain as it will hold an edge well. Feel free to call our sales dept with any questions. 1-800-409-7669.
I am 6'0" tall 150lbs and have a size 12 boot should I get a 155mid wide or would a 156 be ok?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey,
You will, for sure, want a mid or wide snowboard. Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider UNLESS the boots have Shrinkage Reduction Technology.
