Our view:
Germany's fastest racer, at least arguably, is Sebastian Hertler.

The Shark 96 is the wooden version of his race proven foamcore board, but in the iconic composite construction Root are known for.
That means combining wood, fibreglass and carbon to bring you wild curves and drops to lock you in.

The slightly smaller Shark 92 is what we'd still recommend for most riders under 180cm, but if you have larger feet or are talller than that, then the 96 is more well suited thanks to the longer platform and larger width.

Stability is reinforced by the lowered platform, which allows for easier slide initiation as well.
In the middle of the deck, the board rises again & feature unique bends to add extra stiffness.

Torsional rigidity is hard to achieve in board design, we're proud to announce that Root have come through very well on this front.
With just a touch of torsional flex.

Wood grain pattern and colour will vary from board to board, so the photos shown here are just a guide, please contact us if you'd like photos of the ones we currently have in stock.
