Rome Mob Boss Snowboard Bindings Review

Rome SDS Mob Boss binding

If you’ve read some of my previous posts I discussed my feet issues.  In summary, I had severe plantar fasciitis in both feet.  Dealing with this and in my attempts to recover, I made numerous changes to my gear.  I went to a few shops and spoke to several reps about my issues and need for a comfortable binding.  I ended up purchasing the Rome SDS Mob Boss bindings.  In all my research, etc. I found that the Mob Boss had a ton of cushion built in to the base and other features for comfort.  I found them to be very responsive and super comfortable, the extra cushion in the base really helps as far as impact off jumps and boxes.  The ankle strap has exceptional padding as well, one of the most comfortable ankle straps I’ve used.  The toe strap provides great grip and so far stays in place.  It also came with the Yes I Can’t base system, basically it comes with 2 base plate covers…one is flat the other has a  3.5-degree angle that allows for better alignment with a wider stance.  I’ve found this really helps my old knees to not ache at the end of a long day.

Some features of the Mob Boss:

  • The YES I can’t system and Can’t in the Back systems offer up more customization and tweaking so you can adjust the binding.
  • Can’t in the Back – high back adjustment system
  • V-Rod Unibody – side to side flex, toe to heel power

Overall these are great bindings, I do all kinds of riding…park, pow, hardpack, etc. and not a single complaint about these bindings.  If you have feet or knee issues, definitely look into these.

  1. I was wondering if you felt they were a soft binding? I’m looking for an all mountain binding and this binding is rated to be soft but it seems like some of the reviews say that it’s stiffer than they thought and thus more responsive. Can’t decide between this and the 390 boss. I prefer the Mob boss because it comes with 2 degree cant instead of only the 3.5 which I feel might be too much for me. Thansk!

    1. Hey Rich,
      I’m more of an all mountain rider myself and really find the Mob Boss to be great for all types of riding. I was unsure of the 3.5 cant, I’ve had a surgery on each knee, but the cant actually takes a lot of pressure off the knees. The main difference between the 390 Boss and the Mob Boss is the flexibility. 390 Boss comes with the 2.5 or 0 cant, Mob Boss 3.5 or 0. Plus the Mob Boss is a little cheaper…hope this helps!
      Dave
