TruSnow Says: The jib legend is back for another round. The Artifact has been a top-seller for years and continues to be one of the most sought-after jib boards on the market. If you want to ride anything that isn?t snow, then you?ll want the Artifact Rocker.

Rome Says: For the pure pleasure of pressing 5-0s and blunts, LNP, Eiki and Lazz all mount up the true-twin Artifact Rocker when they ride handrails, ledges, and boxes. The Reverse-Jib camberline is flat underfoot for balance on rails, while the reverse camber in the nose and tail makes press tricks so easy that it?s almost cheating. Glass Reverse-V
Stringer Technology ups the ollie and nollie height.

Pop Rock Reverse Camber- Traditional Rocker or Reverse Camber profile that is loose and fun for riders. It is easy to press, butter, ride switch and float in powder. Never catch an edge.

Impact Core Matrix- A solid wood core designed to handle the abuse of constant shredding.

StraightBiax Laminate- A biaxle or 90 degree fiberglass weave that is perfect for tricks because it butters, turns easily and will not catch an edge.

Impact Base- Strongest Extruded Compound that handles rails, burs, wood and maybe even concrete.

Glass Reverse-V Stringer Technology- Carbon Fiber Torsion Forks designed specifically for reverse camber boards. It makes the board stiffer in the center which where they need to be.

QuickGrip Sidecut- An aggressive sidecut is important for a reverse camber snowboard so that it keeps traction. This board can turn with the best of them!

Glass Impact Plates- Impact protection under your bindings prevents your snowboard from breaking and helps keep your knees healthy.

Jib Edge Bevel- -3/ -3 degrees. This is the maximum allowing you to have sharp edges and do rails without fear of falling forward.

Waist Width:

144 - 244mm
147 - 246mm
150 - 248mm
153 - 250mm
156 - 252mm

"Hyphy" 8/31/2010
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (2) No

  • Name: Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Boxes,Rails
  • Pros:  Soft, Fun,
  • Cons:  not for all mountain,

Experience:   This is the undeniably the softest board on the market, none rival it's playful flex perfect for urban riding. I demoed this thing at Windells, session 1, so I was the first person to ride it at the camp. I was 120 pounds and 5 foot 7 at the time and it was significantly softer than my 151 Salomon Salvatore Sanchez (salomon's softest board). My Salomon had been ridden for over 40 days at the time and was pretty flexed out. The brand new Rome Artifact was softer right out of the box, granted I did demo the 147 but it was perfect for learning 5-0s and blunts on down rails. I would recommend this board to anyone who rides a lot of Urban or loves to hike the rail line. As for the cons, I was pretty sketched out hauling into the jump line in chunked up slush. But anyways this thing is great for rails and Hyphy as hell.

I've had a chance to ride this board finally. I would say the Signal Park Rocker is still considerably softer then the Artifact. The Artifact definitely was poppier and snappier though.

SDHnum6
This board is softer, the park rocker seems softer because of it's overdone reverse camber. That also accounts for the lack of pop.

i also think its a good park board

"Rome Rips It" 8/17/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Soft yet capable of all mountain,

Experience:   http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=34840&PN=1&PID=670564#670564 I would recommend this board to someone who treats the whole mountain as a park. Not looking to bomb runs everywhere but looking to just have fun. It will carve great but doesn’t have the pop in and out of the turns like some of the other boards in their lineup. I would gladly take this as my everyday board. I like the tip and tail pop and the torsional flex makes the board buttery fun. I had never ridden an Artifact before and now I am sad that I haven’t. This board ranks in my top 5 for park boards that I have tried out…a couple more days on it and it might start pushing for number 1.

Comments & Questions

I have now ridden this board 10 days in all conditions. Powder, park, and groomers. Until the snow just got too deep this board was one of the most fun I have ever ridden. Rome did it right, I even took it off a few kickers (up to about 40 feet) and it held it's own well. There are softer boards out there but this board is great for people looking at a half park half all over day. Get it and have fun!

"Rome scores big with this!" 8/13/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Jibs,Jumps,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  POP!, BUTTER!, EDGEHOLD!

Experience:   This past winter, i had a chance to demo this deck. i fell in love about an eighth of the way through my first run. the edgehold was sick for a park board, and it even cruised through some leftover powder well. the amount of pop surprised me as well. even though this years artifact rocker holds up to all mountain riding much better than years prior, the press-ability and butterability of this board are still the same. Best Rome board i have ever ridden, hands down.

Experience:   Really great jib board. Dont even think about riding this thing in an icy halfpipe you will be disapointed. Great urban board and it's perfect for small-medium features. Great board for a beginner since its soft+rocker!

too soft for larger features? I think not. I have taken it on most everything. It's not a pipe board but you can still ride it there.

"Rome Artifact Rocker 156" 1/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Beginner
  • Use:  Butters,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Switch Riding
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Flexible, Easy to ride
  • Cons:  Aesthetically discomforting,

Experience:   Last weekend I rode the Rome Artifact Rocker 156 board with Contact Union bindings in Big Bear, CA. This board is flexible and feels great on jibs. It has a good pop for the small and medium sized jumps on Lift 5. This board feels very loose when riding, so it’s super easy to spin and butter. When performing backside 180’s I found that I really needed to focus on landing blind in order to prevent reverting. This is an extremly playful and forgiving board. I don’t care for the graphics too much, but I bought this board for the way it rides, not for how it looks.

Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Rome Artifact Rocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Soft but controllable., Forgiving.,
  • Cons:  Not so great on groomers.,

Experience:   I demo'd this board at Mt Hood and loved it. Tried several other rockers and kept coming back to this one. The flat base between the bindings helps keep it controllable so you can still carve with speed, and not just wash out around the turns. Loved it.
