The Rome Arsenal is an affordable, all mountain binding that has a pretty responsive flex rating considering the low price.
Features of the Rome Arsenal 2016:
- 7/10 Flex Rating
A decent flex rating like this means that the bindings are going to handle well at high speed, and over chopped up or unpredictable snow. The higher the flex rating, the quicker and easier it is going to feel making fast turns.
- UnderWrap Heel Hoop
- ConFormist Toe Strap
Basically a stretchy rubber material that stretches over the toes of your boots, to hold them down without slipping off.
- Contour Ankle Strap
- Arsenal Highback
- Full Highback Rotation
Having the option to rotate your highbacks means that you can always have the highback adjusted to give you good heelside turns, no matter the angle you have your bindings set up on.
- Short-Fiber Baseplate
- SubBase Pad
- EVA InBase Pad
- Multiple Strap Positions
- QuickAdjust for Strap Length
Adjusting the position of the straps is very easy, you just flip a little lever, slide the strap to the length you need and flip the lever back down to lock it.
- Tool-Free Forward Lean Adjuster
Although being “tool free” isn’t really that much of a feature, adjusting the forward lean of the bindings is easy, and it can be done while you are still wearing gloves.
A similar binding in price and features is going to be the Burton Custom, although it has a slightly softer flex rating.
