The Rome Graft is one of the most fun boards I have ever ridden. It's buttery smooth flex allows you to get jibby all over the mountain. Although it is a soft board, it surprisingly holds a great edge. I really notice the pop of this board when I'm cruising through the park or just taking some hot laps over on the Gondola. In years past, Rome only offered the Graft in a camber version (which is the version I ride), but new for 2010 is a Reversed Cambered version with their PopRock technology.

The Rome Graft is one of the most fun boards I have ever ridden.  It’s buttery smooth flex allows you to get jibby all over the mountain.  Although it is a soft board, it surprisingly holds a great edge.  I really notice the pop of this board when I’m cruising through the park or just taking some hot laps over on the Gondola.  In years past, Rome only offered the Graft in a camber version (which is the version I ride), but new for 2010 is a Reversed Cambered version with their PopRock technology.  I’m an avid fan of the cambered version, especially here on the Ice Coast where you really need your edges on a softer flexing board.  The Graft really does it all, from pressing rails and boxes in the park, to big airs in the pipe, to super fun tree runs, the Graft can handle anything that you throw at it.  The Graft comes with a -2 degree base bevel, which means you are less susceptible to catching your edge on a rail.. a life savor for sure!  The Graft also features a StraightBiax Carbon Laminate which increases the pop of the board and decreases the weight of the board.  The board retails for $430.00 and you can find it at any of the local shops including Darkside Snowboards and Talent Skatepark, but you can also order it directly from Rome’s Online Store.
