The perfect companion for foiling at every level, each size is optimized to cater to a wide range of users across categories, with a consistent feel underfoot making it easier to size up or down.
REFLEX CARBON CONSTRUCTION
The Reflex Carbon construction creates an extremely strong and stiff standing area, covering an ultra-lightweight fused EPS core. The foil connection features a heavy duty high-density load plate, which carries the load of the foil and connects it to the top deck for a direct connection between the foil and the rider.
The bottom kick tail allows the rider to tilt the board upwards, assisting to force the nose to lift and release from the water. It also reduces the tail touching the water when pumping and turning.
The rounded V on the nose helps prevent the nose from sticking on touch downs, instead recovering without losing too much speed. The mid-section runs into a single concave for maximum paddle speed. Larger models have a longer release edge optimizing the early planing at lower speed.
The concave deck makes it feel much more stable and comfortable when paddling. This allows you to push your chest forward and really get a lot of power getting into the waves, keeping the board stable. It also makes you feel more connected to the foil with the advantage of the extra volume on the rails for stability.
Packing a surprising amount of float in such a short length reduces the swing weight, keeping the board easy to pump and turn. The volume is optimized for stability and getting you into waves as easily as possible for the relative size.
The widest part of the outline is quite far forward for easy paddling, while the curve in the outline keeps the flow for mid-turn touch downs. Faster to paddle, easier to push the nose into waves, and less chance of catching the nose through turns.
