The V double concave bottom shapes combines a general V with two concave channels on each side of the center line. The V provides maneuverability while the concaves channel the water along the board. The result is a lively board providing a comfortable ride with easy landings
Flexibility and impact absorption are synonymous with comfort; however comfort does not mean sacrificing control and performance.
It is difficult to reach this compromise, and this is the main reason behind the development of the DYNAMIC FLEX, which can absorb the chop, without compromising the control and edging.
We sought to gain support and a more progressive and constant contact in the water. Starting with a surfing rail type, we have only kept the bottom part and the result is a reversed rail profile. Its entry into the water is more gradual and the board feedback is softer.
The Twist Control, or Twist Carbon Control on certain models, allows to manage the board’s twist and transversal reactivity. Depending on the model, this cross-shaped structure is either an add-on or cnc-machined directly into the mass of the wood core. Using it is also a guarantee of a better control whatever the water conditions. The Twist Control can also optimize the ratio weight/rigidity and weight/reactivity.
The wood forms the heart of your board and gives it most of its mechanical properties: strength, flex and resilience (ability to return to its original shape).
Each year, in order to master these properties, we seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.
The DIRECT DRIVE technology is present on our boards since 2001, and refers to a board with minimal thickness, a 100% wood core and a 100% fiberglass envelope.
These interlocking elements meet the F-ONE standards for a kite board and provide maximum durability.
The DIRECT DRIVE translate into a precise board, quick and active as it erases the flaws of the water surface, collecting its energy and giving it back for the best performance.
The feeling of riding a rock solid board always in contact with the water without suffering from it is even greater.
However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings.
