Shiv Snowboard - 2014
The Shiv is the little brother to Rome's Shank. The Shiv is 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 in the park.
Bambooster Technology (Centerline):
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.
Two sidecuts with the same radius (arc) are offset with one between the feet and one in the nose and tail. Where they meet near your bindings are Mid-Board Contact Points where the center sidecut transitions down to the nose/tail sidecut. The result is 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 engaged. One board—rides short and rides long.
Rome milled this technology into the Shiv core 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:
To create a smoother feel when landing, spinning or buttering, Rome lengthens and mellows 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.
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.
Glass Reverse V Stringer Technology:
Pop-enhancing technology that increases ollie and nollie pop while still keeping it torsionally loose and buttery — perfect for jib boards where playful is the priority.
TTT Core Matrix:
100% wood core from nose-to-tail. Classic snap with a proven continuous flex—wood rules.
This laminate 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.
Fast enough for most riders, this is Rome's standard of simplicity that is made to stand up to the everyday beating. Strong and easy to fix.
