CARBON FOOTPRINT .::. CARBON RAIL SUSPENSION SYSTEM SURFBOARDS
carbon rail suspension system :::
PROXY composite construction with unique, high impact epoxy foam blank [a lightweight foam that yields a higher compression strength & has very limited water absorption if dinged];
highest quality epoxy resins engineered for maximum break strength, as well as a “loaded” rebound response characteristic.
The carbon used to reinforce the rail lap matrix is woven in a specific pattern/gauge ideally suite for maximum performance & strength.
The carbon reinforced rails in combination with the stringerless blank provide an enhanced flex characteristic that is very noticeable for surfers of all skill levels.
A stringerless board exhibits incredible flex, torque & recoil through turns. However, with no center stringer, the board’s break strength (also called ‘tensile strength’) is significantly diminished. By reinforcing the lap, or rail area of the board with carbon, the enhanced flex characteristic is maintained, while the structural integrity of the board’s break strength is kept intact. This is because boards break by creasing from the rail & buckling inwards, not from the center out. Case-in-point: How many times have you seen a buckled board creased from the rail, across the deck and stopping at the stringer? This is where the placement of a high-grade composite like carbon is strategic in reinforcing the board’s rail strength… without constricting the increased flex pattern.
The Carbon Rail stringerless construction yields an increased flex pattern that gives more speed through the flats and a rocker that warps into the steep parts of the wave face; forming into the shape of the wave creating a slingshot effect both into and out of maneuvers…..IT’S ALIVE!! Even now more than ever…..aaaarrrgghhhhh!! It’s also 3-5+ times stronger than a poly.
parabolic carbon rail suspension system :::
PROXY standard with parabolic blank and carbon reinforced rails. incredible strength combined with “super flex”.
Recommended for standard shortboard shapes & step-up boards.
Todd will detail the board construction with you during the ordering process to dial you into the right options for you based on your needs and budget.
All surfboard models available in Carbon Rail construction.
