Rome Targa 2018-2019 Snowboard Bindings Review

It’s a freestyle model, but one that’s definitely geared towards the more experienced end of the market. Both the highback and the chassis are very rigid, which is great for precise riding but at the expense of margin for error. If you don’t respect ‘em, you’ll pay.

In the right hands (or rather, on the right feet) the Rome Targa bindings are exceptional. They offer a responsive ride almost beyond equal, giving you confidence through the carves and when setting your edge for take-off. There’s also more than enough EVA padding under your boot to absorb any knuckled landings.

The ankle strap features Rome’s ‘PivotMount’ adjustment system, which lets you fine-tune how much support you have by re-positioning the placement of the ladder. On top of that, the strap itself offers three levels of flexibility, so you can get just the right balance of comfort and response.

You can use these to mix it up on smaller features, but the real purpose of the Rome Targa bindings is to help you step up to the high-consequence stuff. If you like, you can go full Ståle-tard and get the one in his RK1 crew colourway.

Tester’s Verdict


“The Ståle connection meant that I was expecting something super aggressive – but these weren’t. Perhaps it was them being on the powerful Rome Blur, but they just felt perfect for higher-paced shredding with none of the uncomfortable stiffness such bindings can be blighted by.

“I was expecting something super aggressive – but these weren’t”

They certainly felt super responsive and the straps – very easy to adjust, I must say – were really comfortable and reactive, so they’d be perfect for not just riders on Ståle’s level, but anyone from intermediate and above who wants a reactive, yet still comfy, ride.”
