Description: Rome Graft Snowboard 158
The Rome Graft Snowboard is a powerful new board that is well suited for all levels of snowboarders. State of the art features are what separates this board from its lesser brethren. The board features a Pop Maxtrix core that will last for many reasons. Impact reduction and vibration resistance are taken to extremes on the Rome Graft Snowboard. A directional twin shape and radial sidecuts to help with turns and stability make this the perfect board for all mountain snowboarding.
- Pop Core Matrix- It is important that the inside of your snowboard is wood so it reduces vibration and lasts many seasons.
- StraightBiax Carbon Laminate- Biaxle or a 90 degree fiberglass weave is soft flexing for easy presses, jibs and butters. When you add carbon fiber, you will see increased ollie power. This is a very fun stiffness.
- SinterTrue Base-- A fast wax absorbing base that is more durable to handle the abuse of rails.
- Carbon Centerline Stringer Technology- Carbon fiber down the center of the board to increase torsional stiffness.
- Basalt Impact Plates- These are eco-friendly plates that add more support under your bindings so your board does not break.
- Park Edge Bevel-2 degree base/-2 degree side. Boardslide without fear and still rip a turn early in the morning!

"So Much Fun"
If i had to describe the Rome Graft in one word it would be FUN. With it's soft but not noodly flex it's a blast to butter around on and the camber balances it out nicely, giving it some nice pop. This deck owns the park... Jibs, Jumps, Pipe, the Graft handled it all really well. For a softer deck, it holds an edge super good. If you like cruising groomers and spending most of your day in the park, get the Rome Graft.
I was told this board was more like a beefed up artifact. Something with more of an all mountain side of freestyle flex. Nope, i honestly could not tell the difference between the flex of this and my artifact. Now, does this mean its a bad ride? not at all. It was fun to play around on in the park, and was a nice, solid park deck. I was just hoping for something a little stiffer.
"Graft for the win"
This is my first season and I've tried K2, Burton, Forum, Solomon, Morrow and Sapient boards and I will tell you this Rome Graft beat everything I've tried by a mile! The Graft is very responsive and flexible! Took the board on VERY ICY parts of the park and I was blown away with how great it handled. This board is a BEAST and I LOVE IT!
I have last years model in a 153. I got this board a little smaller than normal to use as more of a park board. Works great, responsive. Nice pop off kickers and still works well on jibs.
"This board is Rad"
This board is flat out nasty. Ive ridden it a couple times and Ive loved every second of it. The Pop Core Matrix gives you incredible pop off the jumps and is easy to spin off of anything. Its nice and flexy so you can press nice on rails while still stable for stomping huge landings. The impact plates suck all of the shock out of landing and makes the board super durable. Its the perfect balance of the Rome Artifact and Agent so its awesome in jumping and jibbing. Its also fun to rip down the backcountry and groomer trails all day. The only thing I suggest you do before you start shredding is file down the edges a bit but that takes all of 5 minutes. For any of your ridding needs, the Rome Graft has got you covered
So i got this board last year, and so far im very impressed with it! its super flexy!!!!!! love super soft boards! im currently using this as my street/jib board and its awesome!
"Beginner/Intermediate board that still performs"
I had the 2010 Rome Graft and now have my 2011 Rome Graft and they are sweet boards. I still consider myself a beginner and it is great to do everything with. I feel as if its ready to do everything I want. Its a good board for someone who is a beginner but still wants a nice board that isn't a cheap entry level board.
"Rome Graft Board 2010"
I bought this board used from a friend in CO for 75 dollars and I fell in love with it immediately. I bought a 153 from him which is much smaller than I had ever ridden but the board it everything I asked of it. Took me through the park and floated almost as good in powder as my 159 Lib Tech TRS. All Around great board which I would expect nothing left from Rome.
This board is perfect for begginers, it doesnt excel in one particular thing. Its a good all round board. Rome always make great boards though and this would be perfect to getting into big jumps and hitting up the park
