Features / Technology:
Glide, comfort and carving are major aspects of your boards handling. The edge to edge single concave improves all 3 points. To glide and accelerate you use the centre part of your board where our new concave is 4mm deep.
This effectively flattens the rocker of the center line for more efficiency. And when carving or on edge the concave increases the bite of the rails for more effective edging. You also gain in comfort with the concave cushioning any rough water to give a smoother feeling under your feet.
Direct Drive refers to a board with minimum thickness, with 100% wood core and 100% fiberglass envelop. These elements are interrelated and create a coherent set answering the requirement of a high performances kiteboard.
With the Direct Drive F-One can obtain a very precise board, quick and active as it is able to erase the chops absorbs the energy and able to restitute all that in the best of timing. The feeling of riding in direct contact with the water is even greater, and the manufacturing quality is optimal.
100% Wood Core:
The core is the soul of the board; it is the key to the DIRECT DRIVE technology. Impossible to manufacture boards this thin 11mm in the center and only 3mm at the tips, without the help of wood core.
The flex, the dynamic response and the chocks and vibrations absorption provided by the wood core are unique and unequalled.
The board works for you and with you. You don't suffer from the uneven surface of the water. The results: less effort on your legs, better aim control and better sensations.
ABS Inverted Rail:
The most outstanding improvement in the DIRECT DRIVE technology; is the flex. The board is no longer passive. It works for you and with you.
You no longer suffer from the uneven surface of the water. The results: less effort on your legs, better aim control and better sensations.
