Details

An all-mountain binding that understands your addiction, the Vice combines lightness, flexibility and customization for riders who like their power transmission to be super smooth.  Backed with the new Asym Vice Highback, this new model lets you tweak grabs yet still have the power and pop to rip Euro-carves.  Armed with PivotMount Technology, the Vice gives multiple strap positions to customize how responsive you want the binding to be.

PivotMount Max Technology

We created our PivotMount Max on the Katana and Targa, and for this year we’ve added our new PivotMount on the Vice and Guild. The goal is to make it super easy to move where your ankle strap sits on your ankle so you can adjust toeside response. Just loosen a screw and snap the PivotMount’s arm into different positions. In addition to asymmetric options that riders can explore, we suggest three primary positions:

  1. Run your straps in the LOW position for maximum tweak

  2. Run your straps in the MID position for a balance of power and freedom (this is the default setting)

  3. Run your straps in the HIGH position for driving max power into your toeside edge.

 

Full Highback Rotation.

Put your power where you want it, not where some binding company thinks you should be forced to have it because it’s cheaper to make a binding that way. We believe in highback rotation 100%—when we started designing bindings 14 years ago, this was one of the must-have features. With a range of 0 to 24 degrees, every Rome binding has highback rotation so riders can align their highbacks with the heel edge. This delivers direct power on heelsides.

 

Asymwrap Heel Hoops

We integrate aircraft-grade aluminum into our bindings in order to optimize our Flex-With-Pop approach to binding design. Featuring our signature UnderWrap design, our heel hoops wrap under the baseplate in the front to leverage rider power into the heel edge and drive power down the rails into the toe edge. With a torsionally flexible profile, our heel hoops keep your interface smooth, surfy and tweakable side to side. More than other bindings, our UnderWrap-powered design delivers:

  1. Edge-to-Edge Power

  2. Side-to-Side Tweak and Flow

 

V-Rod Baseplates

Drive power and flex with a small footprint. With our V-Rod Ultralight Baseplate and the V-Rod Baseplate we maintain a powerful connection between your big toe and the lateral side of your heel, while at the same time we lift the other two corners and increase SubBase dampening materials. We do this to engineer our baseplates to deliver proper flex:

  1. Edge-to-Edge Power from the “rod” of edge to edge contact

  2. Flow and Tweak from the raised baseplate corners and added dampening material

  3. Minimal baseplate contact to board for more natural board flex (the V-Rod Ultralight leads the industry with only 1.56% of baseplate contacting the board)

 

Vice Highback

A light combination of flexibility and response through coring and our signature spine of lateral support.

 

EVA SubBase Pad

Contour Boss 2.0 Ankle Strap

Conformgrip 2.0 Toe Strap

The ConformGrip 2.0 continues our legacy of designing industry-leading toe straps. With this latest iteration of our approach of creating straps that conform to any boot’s toe shape, we maximize our use of high-friction over-molded material to stretch and lock into place over the toe of your boot. The results is more foot control with less pressure, for maximum comfort.
