Rome Agent: Best Men’s Snowboards

Rick tried to Rome Agent at a snowboard demo and found it to be a solid performing all-mountain snowboard. The Agent is the Rome version of an all-mountain, do-it-all snowboard. It’s a milder flex, so it’s forgiving for beginners and general freestyle shenanigans. The mild flex makes it fun for butters and other flat land tricks. It’s totally capable in the terrain park, but really fun on groomers, steep runs and whatever other terrain you come across in the mountains.

The Rome Agent was designed by one of the original designers of the Burton Custom. In a blind taste-test, I’m not sure the average rider could tell the difference between the two. Because it isn’t too stiff, it is still a good board to learn on, and like the Custom, it will last you well past the beginner stage. It rides kind of like a Burton Custom but it’s cheaper, so it’s a great value.

If you are looking for a great all-mountain snowboard that will last you for several seasons, the Rome Agent is a solid choice.

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 or take in the park. If you are a more aggressive, fast rider looking to make big carves, a slightly longer snowboard. Snowboarders can often ride more than one size of the same snowboard.

    The Rome Agent is definitely not for beginners!! It is stiff and requires experience to ride well. Rome do an Agent Rocker which has, as you might have guessed, a rocker or rather a hybrid profile, but its still very stiff, if a little squirly at times. This info is accurate as of the 2011/2012 version and probably before.

    These are intermediate (upper end) to expert boards in all flavours for back country and strong fast carves. They are one of the highest end boards that Rome do…

    Snowprofessor is usually spot on but in this particular case, the above is inaccurate so I felt compelled to point this out.

    Rock on guys, you do a great job!!

      Hi Martin,

      I’m about to buy my first own Snowboard. I would describe my experience “better than beginner”. I rode maybe about 15-20 times in a indoor ski-slope and I tried boards like Burton Clash and Burton Blunt but I found them way to wobbly and I don’t like Rocker.

      A guy in a snowboard-forum recomended the Bataleon Evil Twin or the Rome Agent Camber for me but he said the Rome Agent will be the best board.

      Though I found many reviews which said, that the board is for advanced or experts I’m very doubtful if the Rome is the right one for me. I want to get a Board which will make fun driving also in a few years, so a harder board is maybe good, but I also want to buy a board, which I can use in the next holiday (with fun) without having to learn the whole time riding the board.

      Would you think the Rome is intractable for me?

      Cheers!

        In a fan of the Burton Custom. You can get regular camber of the Flying V hybrid mix.
