Rome Targa Binding Preview 2013

Some shots of Bjorn Leines model.



Rome wanted to make sure that everyone knew that this binding (and others) came with 3 canting options in 3 different degrees. This year they are shgipping with a cant pre-installed and the "Yes I Cant" right there for all to see.



This is the greatest feature ever to get no attention. A rider's feature for sure. Never struggle with your straps getting in the way again while you are trying to put your boot in.

Looks like they still haven't changed the design of their cant beds, which was a big gripe of mine with last year's model. Two piece flimsy plastic frames with a tiny screw. Too complicated IMO, especially if you're trying to adjust something on the fly. I prefer Ride's design, with the single price footbed.

They use the two piece design to give riders ultimate customization. You can put different cants for the toe/heel. Now whether anyone actually utilizes this function is questionable. But I agree, adjusting the bindings are a PIA. That small screw is tough to pop out as well. It doesn't just unscrew, you have to physically pop the screw out from the plastic.

^^Ahh that's a good point on combining different cant beds, I never thought of that. I still maintain that it could be a little easier to put together or adjust if you're trying to do something on the fly. At least with Ride's footbeds, there is a metal retainer on the screw so you can't lose it.

Haha maybe it's just the damn engineer in me being critical!

No, I completely agree with you. Their system is wonky. They could still technically do what ride does. Snap in two pads from under one footbed piece. Would totally work.

This is why I like Burton Autocant though. Don't need to worry about any of this with that system.

I had hoped they would have fixed the forward lean or changed it back!

Oh good call, I didn't even notice that, as I was distracted by the color. Damn aesthetics distracting me away from functionality!
