Built for riders who want a basic binding that's tough enough to last all season and affordable enough to not eat into their season pass budget, the Rome United Snowboard Binding has a versatile flex that accommodates everyone from park rats to powderhounds. Stripped down--but never watered down--the United forgoes fancy features in favor of a lightweight yet solid construction and reliable performance. The Unibody baseplate offers response when you're dropping in from the peak, and it's tough enough to take a beating in the streets. The highback is cored out to reduce weight without sacrificing strength or support, and the full highback rotation lets you customize the fit to match your stance. Rome also included plenty of padding to absorb impact from big drops and smooth out the ride when you leave groomed runs behind.
