For 2008 we retain the proven construction including the Paulownia wood core, which made our previous boards the strongest we have ever built to suit even the most hardcore riding style. In addition it provides a very smooth ride and ultimate pop. Apart from these performance features it is better for the environment which is essential for our sport. Almost everything else is new for 2008.
The rocker lines and basic outlines have been refined and when upgrading from 2007 models to the new 2008 FLX you will feel comfortable straight away.
Performance advantages of the new bottom shapes combined with the balanced overall design and construction characteristics are more grip, better edging, very powerful pop and jumping, more control when landing powered jumps flat with a lot of speed, better powered and controlled carving and no spray in the face.
The FLX construction combines an Asian hardwood (Paulownia) core with a durable PBT top and base sheets, tapered ABS rails, stylish sublimated graphics and stainless steel inserts. Tailored thickness flow and flex patterns create the comfortable ride the FLX series is known for without compromising a wide powerful outline curve that provides great pop and upwind performance and makes landing tricks almost too easy.
Unidirectional Carbon reinforced laminates provide the optimal balance between strength, weight, flex and twist control.
Rails at the tips feature a thinner, harder edge to provide tracking stability and a solid edge hold through carves.
FLX Boards are supplied standard with:
Integrated stainless steel inserts (specific sizes incl. wake-inserts)
Removable screw down contoured footpads
50mm G10 fins
Stainless steel hardware
The graphics have been produced by Jacques Mulder who designed the graphics for last three season’s boards.
