The Notch is a freeride classic. For the price of the Rome Notch there really aren’t many snowboards that compete, a swallow tail for under $600 is mind blowing. With S-camber and a tapered shape the Notch will float no-matter how deep the snow gets, and the Triaxial glass laminates, Carbon V powerbars and Kevlar reinforcement mean you’ll get plenty of punch out slashy carves and when you’re blasting through afternoon chop, you won’t need to worry about chatter. Did I mention that the 164 is a swallow tail?
LINE UP EARLY FOR FIRST CHAIR
There are those riders at every mountain who show up early for first chair. And every storm brings out the same crew. They might not all hang out together at night, but they do hang out for an hour or so every pow day. With two tapered models and one swallow tail, the Notch features Rome’s S Camber for those with a first-chair addiction. New tech in 2011 adds more kick in the tail for surf-style cut backs or just spraying your friend with a wall of snow.
