Rome Snowboards developed two technologies with FlaxDry fabrics
Flax. The lightweight super fiber
Flax is a natural, incredibly versatile, lightweight material that ROME Snowboards use in their boards. Depending how the flax material is used, it has advanced impact absorption properties or the ability to create rigidity and strengthen specific regions of a board.
ROME Snowboards is collaborating with EcoTechnilin and have developed two technologies with FlaxDry fabrics for the new season: Flax Impact Plates and Flax Walls.

Flax Impact Plates
Flax impact plates help absorb impact and add increase strength without changing the board’s flex pattern. This technology consists in a full EcoTechnilin’s woven FlaxDry construction and a new special shape that cover and reinforce the insert pack. These plates are designed to make boards more durable. ROME Snowboards have overhauled the industry of impact plates and taken a step forward in the design of performant boards.
Flax Walls are an I-Beam shaped sidewall reinforcement. When used in a vertical arrangement between the core and the sidewall Flax Walls create rigidity and stability. ROME Snowboards use strategic mapping to inlay Flax Walls on directional boards to utilize these benefits.
