The Shank’s little bro—a short board with Rome’s signature 3D camber for pressing rails and popping lips. The Diamond under foot gives the control you need for getting technical.


No Hang Ups Rocker: A flat-camber Diamond under foot ends 20 mm before the end of the running length. Outside of the Diamond, the nose and tail feature 3D Continuous Curvilinear Rocker. The flat-camber Diamond gives control and ollie pop. The 3D Continuous Curvilinear Rocker gives easy pressing and greasy good times.

Bambooster Centerline Technology: Instead of carbon, basalt, or glass, a 4mm rod of bamboo is laid down the center of the board from under the inserts out to the nose and tail. An easy way to get a little more pop from nature and still keep everything eco-friendly on the inside. Milled into the core, rods of bamboo add height to your ollies and nollies. Bamboo is nature’s way of loading up energy and giving your board large amounts of pop.

Skatecore Profiling: Skatecore Profiling creates both the ollie feel of a skateboard and the turny feel of a pair of trucks. We do this by thinning the board between the feet and thickening the core under foot. We mill this technology into some of our cores to create a feel that is similar to the turning and ollie-feel of a skateboard. Thinner between the feet and thick sections that extend towards the nose and tail creates a twisty, maneuverable feel that still can pop and ollie and give you the necessary landing gear.

Butterout Transition Zones: We elongate and mellow the curve of the edges at the contact point. This creates a playful feel on the snow and lets you get greasy on rails. The modern incarnation of our Profiled Transition Zones from the early Rome years. To create a smoother feel when landing, spinning or buttering, we lengthen and mellow the transition of the contact points where your sidecut transitions into your nose and tail. A longer transition zone with a bigger radius means more freestyle fun.

Quickrip Sidecut: Two additional mid-board contact points between off-set sidecuts for added grip at high speeds. Or, engage the inner contact points at slower speeds for a playful, shorter feeling board with control. QuickRip is a Rome signature technology for power when riding fast and extra fun when slowing things down. Two sidecuts with the same radius (arc) are off set with one between the feet and one in the nose and tail. Where they meet near your bindings are shaped Mid-Board Contact Points where the center sidecut transitions down to the nose/tail sidecut. The result is a board that can be ridden slow and loose between the Mid-Board Contact Points at your feet, and a board that can be ridden powerfully along the full running length. The Mid-Board Contact points become areas of added edge grip when the full running length is initiated. One board—rides short and rides long.

Tech Details

  • TTT Core Matrix-100% wood core from nose-to-tail. Classic snap with a proven continuous flex—wood rules.
  • StraightBiax Laminate-The laminate that optimizes smooth-flexing good times. For those riders who hang mainly in the park or who are just getting hooked on standing sideways, this laminate tunes the board for creativity and fun.
  • XTRD Base-Fast enough for most riders, this is our standard of simplicity that is made to stand up to the everyday beating. Strong and easy to fix.
  • Glass Reverse V Stringer Technology-Strips of laminated fibers add to the response of our boards. The Carbon V pattern in the Postermania adds response to your edges and your ollies, while the Glass Reverse-V pattern in the Shiv, Factory Rocker and Garage Rocker boosts ollies without adding unwanted torsional stiffness.

Shape: True Twin
