Rome Blackjack Snowboard - Men's

The Rome Men's Blackjack Snowboard is a sure bet for stacking park footage like chips at a casino table and cashing in on the mountain's natural resources, such as natural hits and hidden tree stashes. A brand new offering for the 2018 season, the Blackjack widens Rome's line of rip-anything freestyle decks, effortlessly transitioning from carving up morning groomers to dropping into slushy park laps in the afternoon with its balanced twin shape, the predictable feel of Rome's Contact Camber, and bamboo additives for spring-loaded pop. Built off Rome's Contact Camber, the Blackjack Snowboard is fully flat throughout the board's effective edge for a stable, locked-in feel at high speeds and predictable edge hold through carves. Since flat boards loose a bit of carving response to their cambered siblings, Rome adds a FiveGnar sidecut for a bit more liveliness. Essentially, this blended sidecut provides tighter turn initiation as you load into a carve, then exiting with an energetic feel that's not usually encountered with flat boards. Since the sidecut's different radii are blended smoothly, you'll find an abscence of "bumps" that tend to feel grabby in softer snow. Delving inside the Blackjack, you'll find Rome's tried-and-true Pop Core Matrix of a durable wood species, which is used in conjunction with two lightweight wood strips to keep overall weight down. This smooth-flexing wood core sits beside a torsionally soft biax fiberglass lay-up, enabling you to butter, press, and initiate quick turns without excess stiffness holding you back. And to ensure plentiful pop, Rome runs a Bamboo HotRod Single Barrel in a vertical orientation to amplify snap without compromising its softer torsional flex that's ideal for freestyle riding.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
