A modern classic, the Rome 390 binding has been a popular model for years. As an all-rounder it can be all things to all men, and therefore will suit anyone who likes to keep their options open on the mountain.
As with all Romes, the emphasis is on toe-to-heel response combined with a little side-to-side freedom. the aluminium part of the chassis has been designed to offer both, and edge-to-edge performance is further enhanced by the ‘V-Rod’ baseplate.
Put simply, only a narrow channel of baseplate that runs directly under the mounting disc actually makes constant contact with the board, while the rest of it is slightly raised.
This means you’ll get lightning-fast edge changes but a bit of a looser feel when you’re shifting your weight up and down the board. This has benefits not only for your overall riding, but also those times when you want to really bone out your grabs.
The ankle strap has been upgraded with a 3D-moulded design, and combined with the asymmetrical highbacks offers a comfortable yet secure ride at all times.
Great for any conditions, but if you’re after a slightly stiffer model there’s also the 390 Boss.
