Rome’s latest Powder Division series comes in three distinct shapes, each built for a different purpose. There’s the short, fat ST, the big, burly PT, and this: the MT.
The Rome Powder Division MT snowboard sits in the middle of the range. You can go great guns with it when you find an open face, but it’s not so unwieldy that you can’t appreciate tree runs too.
“The spoon-like construction of the nose parts the powder and smoothly rolls from side to side”
The setback camber profile is ideal for freeriding; the board just wants to float. The spoon-like construction of the nose helps too, as it parts the powder and smoothly rolls from side to side. The cutaway in the tail and the tapered outline help too, so don’t expect to be feeling the leg-burn on this.
While there’s not a lot behind your back foot, pillow-popping on the Rome Powder Division MT is made easier by the carbon rod running down the board’s spine. While it’s fairly stiff overall, the biax fibreglass makes working the waist (which is pretty wide in all three lengths) that much easier.
The MT is the only version of the Rome Powder Division that comes in a range of sizes, so more riders are likely to find what they’re looking for here. It also comes as a splitboard, so check that out if you want to earn your turns.
