Rome Buy Locally

2016-ROME

Lightweight, Massive Air, Soft Landings

138 / 143

Jeff Langley’s second signature model keeps the center spine and Delta Base everyone loved from the Bruce, pumped up the rockerline, swapped out the core, widened the overall profile, then squared off the tip and tail for firmer ollies and more punch off the wake.

Rider Profile

Like the Bruce?  Then you’ll love the Rome!  Jeff designed the Bruce as a board that’ll show everyone a good time and insisted that the same hold true for the Rome.  Beginner and intermediate riders will be impressed how fast the Feather Core gets em’ on top the water and how effortless the board is to maneuver.  Throw a pro or advanced rider on the Roam and watch the show as they take advantage of the widened profile and juiced rockerline as it sends em’ into the flats, or in Langley’s case 2 stories vertical off a double up.   

Features

Obrien Features

FEATHER CORE – Maximum float and minimum weight. Our new Feather Core is developed to reduce weight for more control in the air and to maintain it’s profile up the transition of the wake for maximum boost. Built for pure boat performance.

Obrien Features

DELTA BASE – Providing the same advantages as dimples on a golf ball Delta Base technology is evidenced by the unique tip and tail features on the base of the board. These features cause the waters surface to break much like a stone skipping across the water’s surface resulting in a fast effortless approach into the wake.

Obrien Features

FLEX TECHNOLOGY – Like skateboards and snowboards O’Brien’s Flex Technology is constructed of multiple materials sandwiched together and framed by a urethane sidewall. This produces a board with optimum flex profiles and durability to last multiple seasons.

Obrien Features

5-STAGE ROCKER – Taking cues from it’s 3-Stage brethren, the 5 Stage Rocker line maintains a flatter profile between the bindings but features more blended transitions toward the tip and tail. These blended transitions allow the board to effortlessly glide across the water with predictable but amplified pop off the wake.
