Rome Snowboard Bindings 2014 - Targa, 390, 390 Boss
 
I love it when brands continue to advance and refine their products. Rome has made 4 notable refinements this year to their top shelf bindings.

The size adjust is now an infinite position slider rather than the older 3 position holes. This is awesome for fine tuning size. The Yes I Cant canted footbeds are now all one piece. The base has been milled out for weight savings and allows the footbed to contact the board for better shock absorbtion and contact feel. The relaease on the ratchets is reduced in size and length so accidental actuations will be lessened. The forward lean on the 390 series has been improved for easier use and lighter weight. All of the bindings are ~20% lighter and all still carry Rome's 2 year warranty.

Those are some good looking bindings! I've been stoked with the 390's and Targa I bought a few years ago, and will definitely being purchasing the same next time around.

Whoops, I forgot to mention that the ankle strap has been beefed up and recontoured. It looks and feels AMAZING (and I liked the old one).

You didn't mention the highback canting on mobs (boss) and 390s (boss), maybe one other binding as well?

Oooh the black/orange one's look nice!

I just got 2013 Targas. Are the straps and footbeds compatible with the 2013. Also which inserts are soft or stiff. It came in with orange already inserted and red inserts outside.

Aesthetics are virtually the same

I like the look of those heel straps. I hated the gel straps on my 2010 390 Bosses. Might have to try out some Targas if their new straps are similar to Union's molded straps.

Anyone know if they still have the problem with the paint chipping. Just aesthetic, but you'd figured they would have addressed it by now.

Nice to see improvements by Rome.

Wondering if the Toe Strap material is beefed up on Quality, since the 2012 Targa Review by SnoWolf :dunno:

Any updates on Color's for the Targa, as I am leaning towards the 2013 model as I am typing this??

Thanks
