Rome Targas and 390s
 
hey guys. i've only heard great things about these bindings,
and from what i understand, why are super adjustable, which
makes them perfect for all riders. i know Snowwolf knows
everything about snowboarding and i know he knows a a butt
load of info about rome. so what can you guys tell me about
the targas and 390s? im planning to get one of them pretty
soon. the targas are alittle bit more expensive, but im
willing to wash some more cars and mow some more lawns.
snowwolf(i think) said basically, the targas are 390s with
alot of extra features. how so? what kind of little details
make the targas better? please and thanks in advance.

we just got a little tour of the targa's at a shop from a guy that uses / loves em. like you mentioned, he said they are adjustable in tons of ways. other features he mentioned where the flat base for your foot to rest on, but i think the 390's have that also.

the feature he liked the best was this adjustable tension piece on the ankle strap that basically held the ankle strap away from the foot pad. so when the ankle strap is popped loose, if you set the tension piece really tight, it will flop all the way open and stay there. seems nice if your are in and out of that binding alot, to not have to organize your straps every time.

A lot of the binding is adjustable on the fly; straps, high back etc. I have the 390's and for the price I paid ($140 after 30% end the season discount at a local shop)they are sick! :thumbsup:

what about the convertible cap straps on the romes?
im riding burton P1s right now and the cap strap is
amazing for me. from what it looks like, the cap
strap on romes just means you pull it forward. hows
the performance on them? cause with my P1 cap straps,
it feels like its not even there, but i have full control.
its awesome.

The cap strap on the Rome's are not as big as the Burton's but they stretch (conformist strap) to pretty much cover the front of the boot. You can also move them back to a conventional toe strap just by pulling it up and back w/out any tools. This is my first time using the cap strap style bindings and so far they feel like they are not there.

does it ever feel like its going to come loose and just pull over
the front of your boot?

i've got the 390s, and never has it felt like that. from what i've discovered the targas are slightly stiffer, so the 390s have more of a park bent, and the targas are better for backcounty.

Any convertible strap is not going to fit over the front of your boot as good as the cap strap. Most people I have seen wearing Romes just wear it as a toe strap over the top but I suppose it would be descent either way. If you already have P1s I'm not sure that I would personally see a reason to get the Romes are Targas. P1s are prety gnar. That being said, if for whatever reason you do need a new pair of binders, Romes and Targas are prety sick :D

Does anyone know if the 2007 390's have the conformist strap?... or is that new for '08?
