The Buckshot is the weapon of choice for freestyle killers like Ozzy Henning, so Rome have made sure it can handle everything from street slaying to booter shooting.
Ozzy’s fast paced, aggressive riding style demands a board that will be able to keep up. So, Rome have manufactured a snowboard that is mad durable, super lightweight and stupidly fun.
“Rome have thickened the boards edges to keep ‘em strong even after a few dings”
A full camber profile keeps the board spring loaded with bags of pop to help out with those ollies and to keep it feeling lively underfoot. The long camber section also increases stability on piste and helps to lock in on tricks.
The board is bang in the middle of the flex scale, the goldilocks of flex patterns, if you will. Soft enough to press and play around, stiff enough to handle the big landings and fast run-ins.
You’re bound to take a few hits and knocks whilst riding, so Rome have thickened the boards edges to keep ‘em strong even after a few dings. They’ve also used their Rebound Sidewalls which are built to absorb impact, so don’t worry about clipping your board on that rail.
In addition to these, Rome have used their Glasspack Impact Plates, which are 4 plates which sit under the toes and heels of your bindings. They may sound like something from Back to the Future, but they stop your core from compressing and add strength.
For those wanting to turn the whole mountain into their personal playground, the Buckshot has to be a strong contender.
