There are many pressing issues in the world, but the Rome Gang Plank has got absolutely no issue with pressing. Or buttering for that matter. A stalwart in the freestyle scene, the Gang Plank is back with a new shape to tear it up in 2020/21.
Playful rockered tips are ideal for locking into presses and throwing your weight over to dial in flatland tricks, they also give a bit more forgiveness if you undercook a spin or have a dodgy landing. The true twin Gang Plank is flat between the feet for a super stable and predictable ride, regs, switch, cab, frontside- whatever way you want to ride it you’re hot to trot with the Gang Plank.

Where you’d normally lose some pop with a flat board, Rome boost the dynamic energy of the Gang Plank with their Bamboo Omega Hot Rods. Yep, they’re as cool as they sound. Bamboo wrapped in carbon sits in the nose and tail, channelling your input from the inserts out to the tips. Bamboo offers mega snap and rebound and lets the overall flex stay pretty soft without becoming a pure noodle.
The updated shape sees the tip and tail fully blunted to bring the swing weight right down, offering you more control and balance in the air and allowing the board a shorter total running length without affecting on snow performance.
“All the hallmarks of a classic park board, with a modern twist and a wallet friendly price tag”
Any park board worth its salt is bound to take a bit of a beating, and the Gang Plank is built to last. Impact plates underfoot both strengthen and soak up chatter, steel edges negate dinks and the easy repair Sinterstrong Base can take hit after hit.
Biax fibreglass laminates keep it nice and playful torsionally and offer a smidge more leeway for mistakes. It’s a board that’ll grow with you, from your first 180 all the way to stomping corks and cab 5’s. All the hallmarks of a classic park board, with a modern twist and a wallet friendly price tag.
