The Rome Mini Shred kid’s snowboard binding is sturdy enough for high speeds and as much air as young legs can muster, but at the same time it’s far from a brute. If your grom is still figuring out those pesky edge changes, it’ll suit them just as well as more experienced nippers.
“The design of the highback and the straps wouldn’t look out of place next to adult models”
The Rome Mini Shred is completely tool-free, so any adjustments (other than those concerning how the baseplate is mounted to the board, such as stance angles) don’t require a screwdriver.
The heelcup and highback are integrated for a simpler, lighter setup, but while the features in some kids bindings make them feel very much like they’re in the ‘training-wheels’ stage, this is one that they’ll barely notice.
The design of the highback and the straps wouldn’t look out of place next to adult models, and the whole chassis is reassuringly chunky without going over the top. Plus it’s all black, because not all kids want cartoons on their bindings.
