Fully redesigned for this season, the Rome Vice is built for riders who want a lightweight binding with a freestyle friendly flex that knows when to grab method and when to lean into a crisp toeside edge. Armed with a new highback, upgraded ProGrip toe and UltraLight ankle straps, PivotMount for customization and an eye for unlikely features, the Vice is all in.
ASYMWRAP: Built to maximize tweakability and a surfy board feel, our innovative AsymWrap platform started the conversation about how bindings can and should ride
ULTRALIGHT ANKLE STRAP:Cushy and supportive, this lightweight ankle strap is built with a dog bone shape for maximum surface area and connected comfort.
PROGRIP TOE STRAP: Powered by AuxTech™, this innovative network of small hinges provides unmatched hold and locked-in grip.
PIVOTMOUNT:A Rome exclusive binding innovation, PivotMounts are small adjustable pieces that allow riders to move the position of their ankle straps on their boots. The higher up on your boot the ankle strap sits, the more power and turn initiation. The lower the strap goes, the more surfy and tweakable your riding will be. PivotMount offers 4 different positions of ankle strap placement per side of the strap, 16 total configurations are possible.
HIGHBACK ROTATION: Designed so riders can adjust their highbacks to mirror the angle of their heelside edge for maximum power transfer.
ADJUSTABLE BASEPLATE: Created to help fit a wider range of boot models and sizes.
Flex: 5-7/10 (1 = playful, 10 = Precise)
Sizes: M/L, L/XL
HIGHBACK: 100% NYLON
BASEPLATE: 30% GLASS / 70% NYLON
Auxetic Shape Technology™ is the result of years of refining and rethinking how binding parts work and how we can improve their grip and durability. Auxetic patterns are geometric patterns that become thicker perpendicularly when stretched. Think of them as a network of tiny hinges, that when pressure is applied, they actually expand and open. This creates a more direct connection to the boot. Better grip, increased durability and better connected-comfort, that's AuxTech.
** DEPENDS ON BOOT/BINDING STYLE AND/OR BRAND - SAFEST TO UPSIZE. ROME RECOMMENDS CHECKING THE BOOT TO BINDING FIT WITH AN ADJUSTED BINDING. THIS CHART SERVES AS A GUIDELINE. AT ROME WE BELIEVE THAT CUSTOMIZATION MATTERS - CENTER YOUR BOOT FOR THE PERFORMANCE AND FEEL THAT SNOWBOARDING DEMANDS.
*** CRUX L/XL BINDING RECOMMENDED FOR SIZE 13-14 US.
