Rome Lo-Fi Rocker ($450)
A playful park deck with enough bells and whistles to jam in Hi-Fi. Its heavily accentuated reverse camber profile makes it super playful for creative park shredding, but it doesn’t stop there. New for 2011, basalt stringers run along and inside the edges, from contact point to contact point, offering better torsional control and improved turnability. With added carbon fiber in the tips, this rig twitches with pop and holds steady at high speeds.
Sizes: 143, 146, 149
“Tracked like it was on rail road tracks … going fast. Smooth on jumps. Rides bigger than it is, but super comfortable right off the bat.”
