Structure - Construction

  • Hot Rods - Glass Single barrel  :

    A single rod of fiberglass in a milled-out channel for more nose and tail pop.

  • TTT Core Matrix  :

    The integral wood core delivers this reactive and responsive feel that only woodfibers can provide.

  • Straight biax Laminate  :

    Arming the bulk of Rome's pure freestyle boards, this playful, forgiving laminate definitely leans towards the flex side of the Flex With Pop spectrum. Perfect for a life of jumping, pressing, buttering and generally having creative fun. Also targeted to Rome's easy-cruising boards.

Shape - Sidecuts

  • QuickRip Sidecut  :

    Advanced sidecut geometry giving a short playful feel at slower speeds and a longer fast and stable feel at higher speeds. The Mid-Board contact points end the running length at slow speeds and add grip at high speeds.

  • Shape True Twin

Rocker - Camber

  • FreePop Rocker  :

    A longer flat section than in the JibPop, with shorter zones of rocker in the nose and tail. With the flat section extending 5 cm outside the inserts, these boards have a park-to peak amount of pop and edge control. At the same time, the rocker in the nose and tail give float in pow, smooth style on rails, and stylish finesse off jumps.


  • XTRD Base  :

    A high 1.45 abrasion resistance creates a base that is durable, simple, and easy-to-repair.
