The sizes 59, 68 and 84
are still designed for Antoine and the bigger, more powerful racers. No compromise, straight forward racing machines.
They work ideal in racing formats like they use in the World Cup – mostly downwind and not very long legs. Maximum acceleration, reaching top speed instantly, staying on the plane through the jibe and taking all the speed with you, not getting stuck if you are surrounded by other competitors and leaving the pack first – that were the priorities for these boards.
With these boards you need to be active and strong but you will be rewarded with incredible, almost unbeatable performance.
The sizes 56, 66 and 78
are quite different. We developed this line to suit the lighter or slightly less powerful riders and also sailors who want to use their Slalom board for the more and more popular long distance events.
These boards are slightly longer but quite a bit thinner throughout, especially in the rail. This makes the board less powerful and much easier to ride.
Keeping up top speed is more relaxed and requires less physical strength. With their extra length they are easier to jibe and more forgiving. These boards are less challenging and demanding than the other line but they are also full-on racing machines – made to win.
Both lines are equipped with a new tail shape. This wider tail delivers better low end performance and acceleration and additionally provides a more parallel, comfortable and powerful stance in combination with the refined race deck.
The 78 and 84 have a flat panel V throughout the hull for maximum lift and performance. The 66 and 68 have additional concaves in the mid section of the board to support a more comfortable and stable ride, while the 56 and 59 are equipped with double concaves running into a flat V at the tail.
All sizes have individually tuned tail Cut-Outs, they all vary in
size and position to tune up each board with its perfect rail length and release for maximum control and speed.
We have upgraded the construction of the boards to be as light as possible and to be stiffer the bigger they get.
- 56 & 59 with Wood construction top and bottom with Carbon reinforcements
- 66 & 68 with full Carbon deck
- 78 & 84 with full Carbon deck and bottom
Two lines of three boards each for the two different kinds of racers and racing formats. Made to win!
