Rome Agent: Best All-Mountain Snowboards
The Rome Agent is a versatile all-mountain snowboard that is great for most ability levels. Rick rode it at a snowboard demo and fount it similar to the Burton Custom. In fact, the Rome Agent was designed by one of the original designers of the Burton Custom. It’s a very similar ride, but it costs less than the Burton snowboard so it’s a great value.
The Agent is Rome’s all-mountain, do-it-all snowboard. It’s mild flex makes it fun for butters and other flat land tricks. It can handle the terrain park, but really fun on groomers, steep runs and whatever other mountain terrain you encounter.
The Rome Agent is a great board if you are looking for an all-mountain snowboard that can ride a little of everything–groomers, park, half-pipe and powder. If you want to crank out aggressive carves, consider moving to something like the Never Summer Heritage, Lib Tech Travis Rice or Burton Custom X.
What size snowboard to buy?
Select the snowboard size based on your weight according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you are between sizes, going with the smaller size can be easier to learn on. Snowboarders can often ride more than one size of the same snowboard.
