Rome Crail 2012 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

2010 & 2011- Camber Directional Shape  2012- Hybrid Camber Directional Shape The Crail is a mellow version of the Rome Headline.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

For 2012 the Crail added the hybrid camber tech that is in the Rome Headline which improves performance in powder a bit.  It’s still not like a board with a lot of rocker in the nose but it’s better than the old camber model.

They also added the “Quickrip” Side Cut which makes for an excellent edge hold and carving.  It really improves the ride over the 2010 and 2011 models.

The Rome Crail is perfect for anyone who wants to get their edge to edge transitioning down and begin the road to understanding an aggressive approach to every aspect of all mountain riding.

It’s also a great entry level freeride board that will help you learn how to correctly carve out a good turn.

Even though the Crail has a shape of the Anthem and Headline it has a softer flex so it makes for a more versatile directional board.  It’s not going to have the speed or stiffer dynamic feel of the Headline but it will be easier to turn and more forgiving.

All in all it’s a good ride favorite for those who want to get into the mostly mountain riding game at a low price.

The 2010/2011 Rome Crail is a solid camber board that can be used just about anywhere.  This is one of our favorite directional all mountain camber boards in this price range.

I can’t believe this Rome crail got the reviews it got like it’s for a beginners. I thought it had a lot of pop and when I’m ridding around with pros with brand new capita’s they can’t believe I’m ridding a board that’s over 10 years old .. I must have road this thing over 300 times and I’m trying out a brand new Ride and don’t like it and also ridding a brand new Lib and would trade it for a Rome any day . I just turned 41 and broke my hip last year and don’t feel comfortable on anything else . What’s crazy is that if this was one of the lower performing boards I would love to see what a new park board does !! I got kicked down all these brand new boards to ride this year and would gladly trade my brand new 2021/22 ride are my brand new 2021/22 Lib tech for a 2009 crail are something that can handle the park and butter combinations I’m spinning on and of rails and drops. I ride Mt hood meadows and the place is like a free ride snowboard park . Then I ride timberline in the summers and unfortunately after my accident getting pushed of a run by 3 ski racers and braking the accatabular socket of my hip and my pelvic bone in half. The doctors at the clinic told me I was being a total baby and I should be able to walk it off in 3 days ..They made me Drive my car out of there parking lot and 3 weeks later the cat scan said I was in big trouble . I new when the surgeon said you wish you would have just broke your femur I would be out for a very long time not to mention my broken ribs .. They never found the guys are even tried and the resort didn’t even refund my pass when this happened in the first week and the first week was free for anyone that had a pass the year before because of the shut down from Covid .. I wrote them a nice letter Letting them know that I had a season pass since I was 14 years old and the only year I didn’t have a pass was the year that I worked up there and had a pass there for 26 years and they said they never received my letter when I sent multiple cover letters explaining how my daughter , girl friend and my family and filming crew all rides there because I’m the hype man that gets everyone stoked .. The doctors said I would never be able to walk normal and here I am ridding my 153 crail for the 12 year and I need some pop put back into my board .. I feel blessed to be alive and I have nothing but the best things to say about Rome !!! I bet you if I told Rome about my situation I bet they would send me a brand new board just on principle .. Thank you Rome for making all my snowboarding dreams come true!! I believe there’s a rep and good friend with all my buddies here at meadows that could let you know how OG I am and how much kindness and love I share with the Earth , the animals that live in it and the people and companies like yours that make karma oh so beautiful . I have saved and helped so many people on the mountain including saving a ski patroller that I have no idea what I did to deserve the accident . The run was a mom and pop
Run with children on it and these Ski racers physical cut me of and the last one shoulder checked me I think because I dropped before they did . Well it was either run in to a woman with her 10 year old daughter or fly into a stack of trees.. there was no way I was hitting the woman and her 10 year old little girl .. The woman and Daughter where fine and this really worried snowboarder came to my aid and some people on the run that saw what happened went to go chase down the Ski racers .. Well after getting my board removed for me !! I got so so angry because I new my life was changed forever that I got a huge adrenaline rush had somebody at my aid because I was ridding solo that day , strap my back up into my good old faithful 153 crail and I straight lined it all the way to the clinic screaming in pain .. The doctors said there was no way I could have made it down with a broken hip and that those breaks only acure during car accidents . Well the doctor in the clinic wanted to go take a couple laps so bad that he just said the exrays look fine and a nurse said I will get a second opinion from the nearest hospital in town . When they called back they said that if I was in that much pain it must have been my femur went straight threw that joint and into my pelvic bone and broke it in half and the doctor at the clinic , was like no he’s fine trying to put on his boots .. to go take those laps . When somebody else came in with a open wound on there head he literally threw his gear down and was so mad he had to give some stitches .. After telling them no Guys I think it’s broken I’ve never been in this much pain before they said here it 2 Ibuprofens and I went on a 3 hour drive to my parents house. I had to move in because I couldn’t walk for 6 months my girl friend left me and went and had her fun while I was just hating it and then I had my 40th birthday .. sense I will have chronic arthritis in my hip for life because they couldn’t do the surgery in time because of the horrible original prognoses I ended up walking it off and was super lucky a blood clot didn’t kill me after the fact …I really could have filled a lawsuit but that’s not my style and really I just wanted those ski racers to know that they almost killed me I can’t t believe I made it out of this alive . If you guys inspired by my story I can send you pictures of the brakes form the cat scan and how swollen my feet and arms where for so long
. My parents and my daughter where terrified they where going to loose me and I tried to keep them healthy by smiling as much as I could .. I really want to be on the best Rome
Park board on earth and most definitely deserve it. I’m working on of snow physical therapy everyday and am a gymnastics coach so I have all the blocks and trampolines to get all my tricks back !! It will never be like before but thank you so much for your time , and listening to my story about this Rome crail I’m so in love with .. I would absolutely love a top of the line Rome and I will be filming my progress and making stepping block videos hopefully on a Rome .. Thank you Rome for all of the Love and I hope you guys get and read this bible of a message !! Thank you and god bless . Please let me know if you received my story because if this Rome was weaker and wasn’t as strong as you guys build then to last it defiantly would have snapped in half and would have been my head and not my hip I would have shattered .. lucky I didn’t have speech problems after and I was in the best shape of my life in the accident.. If anyone accidentally does a hit and run on a mountain device I highly recommend stopping and making sure you check in with the person are at least apologize I’m so thank full these dudes hit me instead of the mother and daughter going fast as they could on a icey day I the easiest run on the mountain threw traffic . I’m not sure what happened to snowboarding etiquette but I know Rome has the style and the people backing it up to make it the greatest snowboarding company on the earth . Love you guys and thank you .God bless


Great board!

This board helped me go from a very confident beginner/intermediate rider to an intermediate/advanced rider over a relatively short time (3 x 15 day trips in Europe). Maybe my competitive surfing background also helped, but nonetheless, I find the Crail to be very forgiving, goes well in all conditions and has allowed me to improve my carving abilities with confidence. Used a ski app on our last trip and my speed is usually between 55-65kmh (highest recorded 75), which might seem slow to many, but my focus is all mountain "surfing", no parks, hardly any switch, etc. even though I feel it's time to upgrade, I'd highly recommend this board to anyone on a tight budget or a beginner/intermediate who wants to progress.
