The Rome Gang Plank is an all mountain destroyer, for riders who are looking to turn the whole hill into their own personal playground. If you’re looking to bonk, slide, ollie and spin all day every day, then the Gang Plank might just be whispering your name.
It muscles into the overcrowded category of ‘Mid Stiff All Mountain’ and manages to stand out amongst all the boards within that. For a start, it’s mostly flat which isn’t a super popular approach for boards looking to encompass this category. However, year after year the Gang Plank shows its chops and leaves us all impressed with its versatility.
“New for this year are hollow, curved carbon rods on each side, running parallel to the sidecut”
The flat section is a nice middle ground between the profiles, and gives stability, predictability and a super playful feel. They put a slight rocker section outside the bindings in the nose and tail, and this early rise leaves the board feeling smoother and more playful.
A bamboo rod runs outwards towards the tip between each set of inserts, this rod packs the board with the pop it might have lost by eschewing a camber profile. It does this without adding weight, or increasing the stiffness of the board, so it stays mellow and playful but now has an explosive nose and tail.
Glasspak Impact Plates sit underneath your bindings and are there to reinforce the area that can take a beating from big landings or when you’re throwing it into carves. They absorb and disperse the energy before it has a chance to compress the core.
Adding to the durability are the Rebound Sidewalls which absorb energy from impacts, so you can laugh in the face of edge dings and knocks. A fast, durable, fun mountain killer? Sign us up.
