Rome Artifact Rocker

Rome artifact rocker 150. Rode this at a demo day in Perisher, NSW, Australia two weekends ago. i loved everything about how the board rode in the park. only thing i found that i didnt like was when initiating turns, it was a real loose feel (which i liked) and toward the end of the turn the edges got super aggressive and grabbed whilst i was trying to roll over onto the other edge. This could just be because the board was fresh out of the factory, no detune, but has anyone else rode this board to give me some idea..?
thanks

It's their quick rip sidecut. Reminiscent of what Arbor is doing but Rome's is significantly more blended.

3 sidecuts less blended than what has been normal the last few years. Gives a pressure point right about where your rocker starts. So your initiation is using only the inner sidecut but when you lay into a turn you start using the more aggressive sidecut outside your feet.

Snowboarding Is...

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