The assymetrical highback and nice ankle straps on the rome's are really making it hard.
They will have solid black in most stores October 3rd. I don't like the split color much either

Union Contact Pro & Rome 390 Boss, I am currently riding last years 390's and my only complaint is that they're pretty heavy with a bit of annoyance coming from the forward lean adjustment always snapping back to zero forward lean.

I have been trying to find out the weight also. I emailed Rome to get a weight comparison btw the 390 boss and targa... I am deciding which to thrwo on my evo-r. I have an old pair of targas (08 or -09 cant remeber) but they are heavy as hell.. i love the targas bc i can still rip them in the park,, but i want to keep the weight down at the same time.
when i hear backk from rome ill post their reply

Leo Rome 390 Boss Or Nothing!

I'm even considering slapping those bindings on a stiff-ass T-Rice board lol.

Nivek I just noticed you are putting these on a stairmaster. I had the original contacts on a scaremaster and that's been one of my favorite setups in a while.

Standard contacts will be great on that board. Or for a little less money id bet the flites will be fun on it too.

Triple8Sol Having owned Forces & Datas and 390's & Targas, I prefer Rome for durability, comfort, and better toestraps.
