Rome Guild 2018-2019 Women’s Snowboard Bindings Review

Both the men’s and women’s versions of the Rome Katana bindings rank among the most impressive, most advanced models that you can find anywhere. However, all that tech comes at a price, so Rome has made sure to provide options for the less flush too. For the men it’s the Vice, and for the women it’s the Rome Guild.

The Rome Guild women’s snowboard bindings feature a similar baseplate to their high-tech big sister. The lightweight aluminium chassis runs right from the heelcup to the toe strap on the inside of each foot, but not on the outside.

“The Rome Guild bindings pack more clever tech than we can go through here”

This means you get plenty of edge-to-edge response, but can easily shift your weight from nose to tail for a more surfy ride – not to mention some serious tweak in the grabs.

Unique to the Rome Guild is its asymmetrical highback that features a prominent cut-out near the top. When you need to rely on it to hold a strong heelside edge, it can deliver, but when you want to take things slower and get some flex out of it, it won’t feel like it’s got a case of rigor mortis.

Despite being pared back compared to the Katanas, the Rome Guild bindings still pack more clever tech than we can go through here. Rest assured that comfort and performance are both well catered for, at a price that everyone can appreciate.

Tester’s Verdict

“So in general I really like riding with Rome bindings, thus I was excited to see if these would make me think differently about their bindings – well, they didn’t.

“These made it so much easier to understand and control the board in the best possible way”

Rome Guild bindings are stable, heavy enough to make you go just that extra bit faster and give you a really good feeling on and off the board. I really could feel the board through the bindings which made it so much easier to understand and control the board in the best possible way.

The bindings are heavier than other girls’ bindings usually are, and this is why I find them to be especially good for girls who aren’t that heavily built and seek for that extra kick to their riding.”

Tester’s Verdict

“I wore these bindings with all the boards and boots I tested, and felt like they worked seamlessly with every set up.

They felt really comfortable, yet super supportive and stiff enough to withstand any sketchy icy conditions. Overall they’re super solid bindings for any type of riding!”
