Vice Snowboard Binding

Powder days, park laps, high-speed groomers, you crave it all, so make sure your binding can keep up with your boarding binges with the Rome Vice Snowboard Binding. This binding offers ultralight performance and a supportive feel that's surprisingly tweakable. AsymWrap technology improves edge-to-edge response while maintaining lateral flex and board feel, meaning you get quick turning power and maximum board control.

PivotWrap technology lets you adjust the strap position to customize how responsive you want your binding to be. Run it looser for mellow park laps and surfy pow days, or go ultra-responsive when taking on big mountain lines and railing carves on groomers. Its mid-stiff flex offers support and response for going big and fast, but it still allows enough flexibility for tweaking methods thanks to the Asym Vice highback. Basically, there's nothing this the Vice won't do.

Stiff, extremely high-quality bindings

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

-The quality of the materials and overall construction is perfect, and perhaps unmatched by any others I've seen or ridden. I ride in New England, most often on shitty icy hardpack, so I've tried a lot of the stiffer bindings to allow me to ride aggressively on fast, hard terrain.

-I really like how many adjustments are offered, especially the way the heel cups & highbacks can be tweaked

-Because the foot-pads don't flip back quite all the way, it is a little bit cumbersome to install the plates, but not a big deal

-I was looking for stiff, but these bindings are extremely stiff. I've gotten used to riding on the stiffest plastic and carbon bindings offered, but the aluminum bindings are a whole different level. In fact I found that they were prohibitively stiff on my stiffest free-ride/ice/carving board (Nidecker Rave), leaving my ankles and legs pretty tired after a few hours, and making it difficult to transition edge-to-edge without a little bit of ankle flex being allowed. To be fair I was also on relatively new boots which were not fully broken in, so take that into account. They did however mesh perfectly with my slightly softer Nidecker Mellow, which is a surfier board that I ride in powder and slush. WIth this board, I found that the stiffer bindings greatly increased my ability to tweak the lateral and longitudinal flex of this board. Although I probably would not want to wear these for park laps, I felt comfortable on all other slopes and in all conditions, and enjoyed the new found control I had over that board.

-My one complaint is the toe straps.. They are made of a very soft, pliable rubber and not backed with any sort of leather, plastic, or other fabric. This means that they DO mold very well to the shape of the boots, however, the extreme stretch requires extreme tension on the ratchets to get them tight, and then they tend to 'work loose' slightly after a few turns. I found myself having to stop at least once on each run (back foot at least - the front foot remained tensioned from the last run) to put a few more clicks on the toe strap ratchets. This wasn't a big deal for me since I was riding around the resort, but if you were to send these things down a gnarly culoir or or some extreme off-piste steep-and-nasty, you may not have the luxury of stopping to crank on your toe straps. It struck me as an odd choice for such a stiff binding, and for such a well-thought out, high quality one...

-All in all I'm pretty happy with these and looking forward to riding them more in seasons to come - no doubt they will last for many seasons, and it's nice that they are backed by a lifetime warranty just in case they don't.

Quality Bindings for a Great Price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

First a quick note about me: I'm an advanced all mountain/free ride snowboarder that's been snowboarding for 10 years, and prefer the trees and natural drops over freestyle/park. Poppy, surfy style. I am tall with big feet so I tend to ride men's boards, and use men's boots and bindings.
I think Rome makes great bindings! My first pair of good bindings were the Rome 390 Boss bindings, which were comfortable, strong, but a little heavy. I wanted something similar so I got these and I'm not disappointed!
These are quality bindings - still strong with a lot of tech, but fairly lightweight. That's exactly what I wanted!
First off, this is a mid-stiff binding. The heel back piece is pretty cool with varying flex - seems flexier up top of it than at bottom, which is pretty cool. Seems like it conforms better to your boot movements that way!
The mini disc that these come with is great - mini discs are cool in general since discs represent dead space on your board, and the smaller the dead space the better for more control.
I also loved my toe straps on my old Romes and these are similar - they have this strong rubber webbing on them that seems to wrap and conform to your toe better - again, all for better control!
Now, how did they ride? I liked them a lot! Lots of control, still able to cut those surfy turns and felt super comfortable hitting and landing jumps. Good stuff!
All in all, the exact kind of binding I was looking for! Rome did it again.

Perfect!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The Rome Vice is the perfect all around binding. I had great response and versatility. The Rome vice is a solid, well built binding ready for and sort of riding. It has a nice stiffness to it and is perfect for Brighton pow and groomers.

Just the right amount of response

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are a great go to binding for anyone who considers themselves an all-mountain free-rider. They are definitely stiff enough to keep you stable at high speeds or rip the groomers.

Fun, playful, and kinda stiff

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I put these on the Weston Timber board, and took myself to the resort. The weston board is a bit softer, pretty flexy, and these bindings allowed me to really throw into the flex and get the board to respond exactly when and where I needed it to. I had solid control the whole time!

Just Stiff Enough

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used these bindings on both a Neversummer Shaper and a Nitro Team board, and they are playful enough on my Team but also olid enough to surf pow and engage meaningful turns in deep snow. Love these bindings and highly recommend!

Fabulous binding, all about control

    I absolutely love these bindings. I prefer to use a stiffer binding to have better control over technical terrain like surfing in Chutes and riding deep powder. I use a board with mid flex for some versatility in the mountains which works perfectly (in my experience) with a stiffer binding. I am able to maintain perfect control when sending tight spaces, surfing chutes as well as the groomers and of course powder. The control is amazing. I was debating between these bindings and the Flux DSW (a fantastic binding as well) but ultimately got these bindings because the construction is a little stiffer and felt more solid. I used this on a stiffer board too which worked well because there was no lag or extra movement in the binding itself which is typical for some mid flex bindings.
    The bindings do get a little tight over the boot because of how stiff they are, I generally like having mid stiff boots for a slight flex in the ankle but it does feel a little too tight on the Burton Invaders I have, It's better to go with an actual Rome boot like the Guide SRT or the Rome Bodega.
    I definitely recommend these bindings because they are well built and versatile. I am a snowboard instructor and I highly recommend these for intermediate to advanced riders level green and above because of the amount of control, stability and versatility they offer which helps students to have a better feel for what they are doing on the snow.

    Do it all

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have used these bindings with multiple boards. I used them with the Never Summer Twin Shaper and the Lib Travis Rice Pro board. I have hit everything with these binding to deep and steep powder lines at Snowbird to the park at Brighton. I have used them on fun groomer days as well. I am confident with these bindings. They are comfortable and well put together.

    Amazingly Responsive Binding

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This binding is one of the best I've used. As with all Rome bindings its easy to make quick adjustments on the mountain and the base plate padding keeps your knees healthy when coming down hard on the flat.
    I paired these with The Salomon Assassin Pro Snowboard so basically I felt like I was driving a corvette down the mountain.
    These bindings can do it all weather getting aggressive in the park or in the backcountry powder or having a chill party run on the groomers.
    If your shopping for a binding that is going to last you a long time and be able to have your back no matter what the conditions or the terrain this is a solid choice

    YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED

    More than capable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I paired these bindings with the warpig and it gave me such a responsive and solid ride, through any snow. Adjustment was easy and the highbacks are sleek, the ladders have made huge improvements from a few years ago, which seems like a nit-picky thing to get into, however the ease of getting in and out of these bindings is just as beneficial as the quick response the provide mid-run.

    Great bindings and look sleek.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These bindings feel great and I love that you do not need tools to set them up. I have large feet and have always had issues finding bindings that work well for me. These have lots of adjust ability and make setting up a breeze. Would recommend.

    Rome 2019 Vice Binding

    THE SUPERLIGHT, MID-FLEXING CONNECTION TO ALL-MOUNTAIN MAYHEM



    Born out of Katana DNA, the Vice is a lightweight, mid-priced design created to power-up good times all over the mountain. The foundation of the V-Rod Ultralight baseplate and AsymWrap heel hoop balances edge power, side-to-side flexibility, and lightness. Then to bring Rome’s signature customization tech, we created a simplified version of our PivotMount Technology to let riders position their ankle straps low for tweakage, in the middle for even toeside response, and high for added power. With the Vice, put all-mountain adventures and park laps on repeat.
