Rome DOD 2018 - 2017 Review by The Good Ride
The Rome DOD offers up a pretty damp, cushy, responsive, adjustable and supportive ride for having such a twisty high back. It feels a little heavy, the toe strap felt a little too stretchy and it wasn’t super buttery but overall we liked the ride. We’d really like to do an extended demo to see how they compare to some of our favorites but as it stands now it’s a pretty good binding.

2017 Rome DOD - Meh
I don't love the Rome DOD bindings. Once strapped in, I think the performance is just fine and I like the canted footbeds, but there are a couple of features I found annoying. Specifically, they put an extra rubbery "band" on the ankle strap that's supposed to pull and hold the ankle strap out of your way after you unbuckle. All it really does is hold it right on top of my stomp pad so it's MORE in the way and if you let go for a second while strapping in it springs back out of position. Fortunately, the rubber band is easy to disconnect, which I did. Also, the toe strap is mostly a stretchy rubber, so it takes longer to tighten down and I worry that it can/does give a little under stress while riding (though I never clearly noticed that). I suspect I'll be replacing the toe straps next season.
