Rome Mob?

So I'm sure most of you know, Rome has a new binding out for this season called the Mob. I read a review from Angry Snowboarder (I think) that it was a pretty soft binding with good board feel but it wasn't very comfortable. The ankle strap created weird pressure points.

Has anyone demoed it? I'm interested in getting it but I didn't get a chance to ride it this past season.

That was my review. If you have any sort of issues with ankle straps and discomfort you may not like it. Otherwise for a soft park binding it was pretty solid. Really the only comparable is the K2 Indy. There is the Union Contact, but for me it is just too soft to be ridden on anything except jibs. Just not enough response.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Ah thanks for that. The I was kind of considering the Contact until I just read that. It's nice to read things from people who actually try this stuff rather than just blurb about how great a company is.

Hey Spncr3789, Nivek,

The Mobs have gotten some adjustments since your review that I think you will be both stoked on. Sizing has been adjusted to provide a better fit and more comfort. I'd definitely encourage you to try a pair on at your local shop to see how you like them. If you've got any questions, definitely feel free to hit us up via email at ridercouncil at romesnowboards dot com.

Thanks
Rome SDS
