Product Info

Remember when the internet was littered with photographs of people stiffening up their entire body and emulating a plank of wood, ie. planking? Stemming from the same goal of perfecting a flat line, the Rome Gang Plank Snowboard is prepared to impress you and your posse with the versatility of its flat camber. Whether you're waist deep in powder, swinging through the trees, or ollying it up in the park, the FreePop Rocker Camber will have you motivated to do it all. The Rome Gang Plank Snowboard is prepared to be the highlight of your life, and not just a newfangled internet trend.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Freepop RockerFlat camber in the mid-section of the board meets up with rocker in the nose and tail to create a super versatile feel and response. The flat camber zone gives stability and directional response, while the rockered nose and tails give super pressability and playfulness in all types of snow. Great for riders who like to balance creative trick selection with solid all-mountain freestyle performance.

Flex

Response Rating6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

True TwinA true twin snowboard shape is ideal for riders who want to ride switch and do some tricks. The nose and tail are identical and the flex is evenly distributed throughout the entirety of the board. True twins are perfectly symmetrical.

QuickRip Sidecut TechnologyTeamed up with Rome's rocker boards, the goal with QuickRip Sidecut is to create a board that does two things: it needs to be nimble and maneuverable at slow speeds, and it also needs to be powerful and precise at high speeds. Rome achieves this by integrating two off-set sidecuts that create one zone in the nose, one between the feet and one in the tail. Where the center section meets the other two sections, Rome has created Mid-Board Contact Points. These Mid-Board Contact Points serve as the end of the running length at slow speeds, giving the board fine-tuned control. They also serve as edge "bumps" that grip the snow and increase precise power at high speeds.

Core

Pop Core MatrixDo-anything performance that balances lightness, response and strength with two zones of low-density wood. The everyday balance of response and lightness, this go-to design is built primarily of responsive, strong wood, with two zones of a lighter wood species.

Laminates

HotRods | Bamboo Single BarrelA single rod of bamboo in the centerline adds ollie pop while letting the rest of the board flex normally. Rome mill channels in the cores of nearly every board we make and integrate thin carbon, glass and bamboo rods for more pop and more power. As with TurboRod Technology, we place HotRods in the boards to deliver power to specific areas. Found in both TurboRod and HotRod Technologies, a single barrel of carbon, glass or bamboo delivers more pop in the centerline of the board without any unwanted torsional power to increase freeride edge hold.

StraightBiax LaminateFor a fun, mellow feel this laminate contains 90 degree fibers

Basalt Impact PlatesUnder your bindings, Rome lays in thin Basalt Impact Plates to increase strength against core compressions caused by bindings. Basalt is natural fiber that is super light and super strong, resulting in boards that stand up to being ridden super hard.

Sidewalls

Rebound SidewallsFor some of Rome's park boards that take a lot of impact on features, we've developed a sidewall compound that is more elastic than traditional sidewalls. So you can land disaster more times without damaging your board.
