SHAPE: True Twin
The Rome Shiv definitely features one of the most eye catching designs we’ve seen so far this year. Zombie punk graphics, with a different top-sheet for each size board- you’ll have plenty to look down at on the drag lift, and potentially scare a few ski-school kids too.
There’s a surprising amount of tech included for this price: Rome’s signature no hang-ups camber profile means your scorpion risk is kept low on rails, and a 4mm bamboo rod through the core works with Skatecore profiling to give you the turning feel of trucks while retaining plenty of pop. The Quickrip sidecut brings in added grip at high speed too, so you don’t have to worry about skidding out.
