The Rome Black Label is designed for rider’s who want an ultra-responsive binding that still gives them the tweak-happy flex that all-mountain riding craves. Built with an industry-first PowerGraft™ highback and a carbon-infused AsymWrap chassis for lightning fast edge to edge power. Advanced hold and support thanks to the all-new ProFlex ankle strap and the array of customization options only found in Rome bindings, the Black Label is the pinnacle of binding technology.
I’d say this binding is the best of the best in every category. That’s coming from a 28 year vet that’s rode Bent Metal, Burton, Forum, and 12 straight years of Union bindings. These are light, super responsive, damp, and the high back is hands down the best carbon high back out there. It is rigid, yet has the perfect amount of flex. It’ actually defies reality. The straps are also the best I’ve ever ridden. The PROBLEM; at the cost, and with all of the top end tech, the ladders suck! 6 days and 3 out of 4 are stripped. I can’t even ratchet my right toe strap!! This is the reason I’ve been a die hard Union supporter. Every other brand (especially Burton have soft ladders that strip too soon. These are among the worst, or softest apparently. I really want to give these bindings 5 stars in every other way, but Rome failed on the most basic and essential component. Not to mentioned I’m now one week into a month long riding trip with my wife, and no way to conceivably get replacements in the mail. Good thing I brought my 8 year old Unions as back up!
Cream of the crop for sure, the highback is really interesting in the fact that it's super powerful when you lean into turns but its not a plank , you can still tweak with it and it has give in ways you wouldn’t expect.
Light, powerful, and the most comfortable binding on the market. That’s about it.
The amount of comfort these bindings have compared to how responsive they are doesn't even seem possible.
Built to maximize tweakability and a surfy board feel, our innovative AsymWrap platform started the conversation about how bindings can and should ride.
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 Max provides 8 different strap options per side of the ankle strap, 64 configurations total.
Designed so riders can adjust their highbacks to mirror the angle of their heelside edge for maximum power transfer.
Built so that riders can adjust the angle of their highback to mirror the angle of their lower leg for increased connection and stability.
Created to help fit a wider range of boot models and sizes.
