All 2020 boards feature a hot-coat paint finish. This process combines the colour pigment with the outer layer of a hard epoxy gel coat, this improves the board colour longevity, making it almost impossible to stratch off, it produces an extremely UV-resistant coating that ensures the boards colour resists fading in strong sunlight, all of this whilst saving weight by replacing the base coat paint, and two layers of top coat paint
The Electric Flex Technology
Our layup, construction, and reinforcement are all placed in where user needs and they all work in together to create the optimal stiffness to weight ration. The construction moves with you, rather and against you, which makes the board feel more lively in every movement. We call this technology Electric Flex. For our wave boards we use 45 degree carbon layup for maximum the strength and flex and for our flatwater boards we use 30 degree carbon layup for more vertical strength. Basically, flex and stiffness where its needed. The main features of the construction is the PVC Sandwich stringer. This is the spine of the board which absorbs and distributes the force from impacts throughout the boards entire construction. This eliminates unnecessary breakage as stress is shared between the entire hull, creating a much more durable construction. The stringer also helps to maintain the rocker curve during manoeuvres.
Standard fin setup // TRI
The tri fin setup will provide early planing, great upwind tracking and ease of sailing while still providing a insanely tight turning radius. On the wave, this setup will give you the best possible projection and drive in turns, assisting the sailor in keep speed through the bottom turn, even in less powerful waves. Versatility and snappiess with a user friendly feeling are the main characteristics of this setup.
Alternative fin setup // QUAD
Equipped with a quad fin setup, the Cortex gets more planted and controlled at higher wave riding speeds. The power of the fin cluster acts further forward, which drives the front rail into the water and gives the board added control in draws out turns. At the same time, the shorter depth of the two rear fins makes it easer to set the rail at high speeds which means that the board feels more responsive in fast sideshore or cross offshore conditions.
Alternative fin setup // TWIN
With only two fins, drag is lower and the fin power acts further back on the board. This lifts the nose of the board which in a straight line adds further speed and gives more looseness and quicker reactions in turns. The combination of twin fin and the fast tail rocker provides great ability to set up the top turn either for slashy release or solid power hooks.
