The original boundary pusher
As versatile as it is sleek, the Katana is the binding of choice for riders who want lightweight performance from peak to park and back again. Built with the ultra-light, fully redesigned AsymWrap platform and upgraded impact absorption thanks to DuraCush™ on the SubBase pad and footbeds, the Katana is built to take speed, send-it deep and make any board ride better.
Got the Rome Katana bindings, and safe to say they are the best bindings I have ever had. No clicking or discomfort, overall a great upgrade with a sturdy, reliable binding.
Love Love these bindings....I searched long and hard for a binding that has the feel and performance that the Katana's have. I tore my ACL/meniscus on both knees during skateboard/snowboard accidents (super harsh, two years in a row!) so I was very pleased with the impact absorption that the DuraCush padding in the subBase provided. Customer support was very helpful in helping my select my size binding and steered me towards some great resources (videos) on how to adjust the bindings for the best fit for my body and style of riding. I would highly recommend ROME as a stand-up snowboard company.
Get these bindings. After having used them last season I don’t think I’ll ever use another brand’s bindings. If you don’t want a $500+ binding like the Black Label, but want something beefier than the Vice then this is it. Response, check. Dampening, check. Tweakability, check. Adjustability, check. Stylishness, check. The list goes on. Again, get these bindings.
Wow bindings have come a long way in the last ten years... I have a pair of 2021 Katana's and they are the most badass bindings ever! Adjustability is so fun to experiment with and can be dialed in to fit any boot and any style of riding. There is a noticeable difference in response when adjusting the pivot mount, and it is great to play with that and see what suits you for what type of riding you are doing. I love these bindings. The L/XL look a bit big on my size 11 Ride Lasso Pro boots but the adjustability makes it work. I will probably try out a pair of M/L Rome bindings if I can see them in a shop and see how they fit my size 11s. Size 11 boots seem to fall in a weird grey area for most binding manufacturers.
First off I’d like to talk about the Katanas. I have been riding them for the past 3 season. It does not matter what kind of board you put them on they kill it. The customization of the Katana is amazing. I like to get the most precise fit. The reaction with the high back and the asym aluminum Chassis is flawless. I’d like to also touch on the Ravine Select! Rome through everything at this board. It is so versatile. From groomers, trees, drops, pow, and tight chutes the Ravine does it all. Took the Ravine to Telluride for a day of hiking chutes on the mountain then the next day floating on dreamy Pow heli skiing. I absolutely love Rome products.
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.
