“Wow, this is a great value snowboard. I wrote this review back in Jan 2019 and am somewhat aghast to find out the price tag – this is a bargain. Packed full of tech and learnings from the rest of the exceptional Rome line up, the new kid on the block, the Rome Warden rode exceptionally well across the whole mountain. Having been on a similar board during the days before, I found the Warden to hold its own in the face of boards like the Burton Custom and the Capita Outerspace living.

A deep ass sidecut and camber right under foot with mellow rockered tips, this is my kind of snowboard. It doesn’t challenge massively in terms of speed and power, but it is a super stable confidence booster in the face of some chopped up powder runs and mogul infested slopes. It carves very well, holding a solid edge; the flex is somewhere in the middle, but definitely allows for fast carves, long and low.
It jibs and jumps really well. It felt great for ollies and small jumps, all the way through to big line kickers where it didn’t feel massively out of place.
Beginner and intermediates looking for their first board should strongly consider this. It has a premium feel of a board twice the price, and is a great all rounder that makes life easy allowing progression and good times. More experienced riders may find it a bit underwhelming, but that doesn’t change the fact that this has a lot to offer.”
