The Katana has been Rome's top binding for a long time now built on Romes principles of, customisation matters, all in a lightweight and responsive package. This is a top end all mountain binding which uses Romes very clever AsymWrap chassis. This Asymwrap chassis only connects at the heel loop on the outerside to promote a more surfy feel and give a really powerful lightweight feel so you can charge around the mountain. The underside of the chassis then utilises D30 for vibration dampening to smooth out the ride endlessly. This is a specific D30 product fine tuned to vibration dampening.
Keeping with the asymetric feel Rome use their and asym highback for a asymetric flex to match the asymetric chassis. This has an asymetric split through the highback to offer lateral and torsional flex with a high glass fibre content to give instant response. The flex window matches the shape of your calf and gives more support on the outer side to again match your calf.
The Katana uses the Pivot mount max for endless strap options too with 64 differnt possibilities for the ankle strap position. The key settings are move the strap higher to hold the boot in more and rive more power, move the strap lower to offer more flex for a more freestyl orientated setup or all the way back for smaller boots for better lock down.
Throw in the ultralight stitch free straps and incredible auxgrip toe cap which is made of individual joints to prevent the material from stressing and you have an incredible binding with endless customisation options, excellent performance and super slick looks. This Auxgrip strap is clever too and I mean clever. These joints allow it to bend twist and form to any shape of boot to give the most comfortable toe cap with literally the best fit on the market. Also by oversizing and simplifying the ankle strap the Katana eliminates pressure points for extreme comfort!
Tread on your straps? Sick of breaking them in the cold? All Rome bindings have a tension system to keep the strap out of the way so you dont stand on them when starpping in. Simply set the seperate stretchy PU strap and it will always pull out of the way when open, CLEVER!
There is a good reason the katana has been the top of the pile for a while and still is. Excellent performance matched with excellent comfort in a super slick looking package with endless customisation, what more could you want?! How about a 2 year warranty on all parts? Yep no one in the industry offers that but Rome beleive in their product that much they do, highly reccomended!
