When Rome Snowboards designed the Whiteroom Split, they had two goals. One was to create a board that floats and surfs effortlessly. The other was to create a board that had power in the tail for slashing with a lot of force.

Splitboard Test Results


Regarding downhill it got more playful than the previous model. The directional hybrid split gained further performance thanks to the rockered nose and camber to tail. The board is the ideal companion for all kind of snow conditions. A super agile and stiff board that keeps its nose up in deep powder.
Ascent: The TurboRods add a lot of stability during ascent and give the board more stiffness.

Product description


When Rome Snowboards designed the Whiteroom Split, they had two goals. One was to create a board that floats and surfs effortlessly. The other was to create a board that had power in the tail for slashing with a lot of force. To achieve both they put two rods of carbon in the tail to add pop in two main directions — in line with the board for bigger ollies, and torsionally when the board twists for more power off edge. New this season 2017-18: Rome integrated the new Karakoram Ulraclips, hence no bolting on the base.
