ROME Kashmir Ladies Snowboard
The all-new Kashmir is our latest offering for flat-cambered, ride-everything fun. A true twin shape and flex pattern that is equally at home pressing in the park, darting through ancient forests or sneaking in a few laps before work. Our Contact Camber combined with our UltraPop Sidecut brings snap and pop, but also rounds things out with a mellow torsional flex perfect for all-terrain prowling.
TERRAIN: All-Mountain, Freestyle
ABILITY LEVEL: Intermediate-Advanced
ROCKER TYPE: Contact Camber – 100% flat through the running length to give both pop and pressability.
FLEX RATING: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
SHAPE: True Twin – Rome's True Twin shapes are perfectly symmetrical. If you cut the board in the dead middle of the board, the nose piece and the tail piece will be identical in shape and flex. If you remove the graphic from a True Twin, there is no way to tell the nose from the tail. With their balanced feel and equality toward switch riding, this shape helps drive the personality of Rome's park boards and the more jump-oriented all-mountain freestyle boards.
FiveGnar Sidecut – To add a lively, responseive feel to Rome's flat-camber boards, Rome designed a complimentary sidecut that features two different sidecut 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 sidecut. 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.
BINDING COMPATABILITY: 2x4 Insert Pattern
CORE: Pop Core Matrix – The everyday balance of response and lightness, this go-to design is built primarily of responsive, strong wood, with two zones of a lighter wood species.
LAMINATES: HotRods: Bamboo Single Barrel – A single rod of bamboo in the centerline adds ollie pop while letting the rest of the board flex normally. Rome mill channels in the cores of nearly every board we make and integrate thin carbon, glass and bamboo rods for more pop and more power. As with TurboRod Technology, we place HotRods in the boards to deliver power to specific areas. Found in both TurboRod and HotRod Technologies, a single barrel of carbon, glass or bamboo delivers more pop in the centerline of the board without any unwanted torsional power to increase freeride edge hold.
Straightbiax Carbon Laminate – Starting with the jump-and-rail personality of 90 degree woven carbon fibers, Rome adds longitudinal strips to increase ollie pop.
BASE: Impact Base – Rome's high-density design that stands up to the abuse of park and street snowboarding.
