The core consists of large battens (1.2cm) of Paulownia wood that are assembled and laminated with high pressure.
Wood has excellent mechanical properties due to the abundance of natural fibers that are all oriented vertically to deliver strength from the core to the tips.
The wood core enables a very light but strong board.
The ABS is the best thermo-plastic material for the rails. ABS (from ISOSPORT) is strong and adheres particularly well to epoxy. It works like a protective shield for the board. All ABS rails are shaped with CNC control to produce a perfect curve.
The boards are built to be durable. To protect them from scratches and UV sunrays, ultra-light and strong 0,3 mm ABS layers are applied on top and bottom. This material molds seamlessly to epoxy and it is translucent like glass. The board will always look like new.
V4A is the norm for Stainless Steel to secure resistance against salty water. The base of the inserts is reinforced and has a special hexagonal shape. This will maintain the insert position forever.
The torsion lenght-side the board is blocked by 45 degree S-glass or Carbon sheets, depending on kiteboard type. This provide more pop, dynamic and increase the upwind abilitys
3D TOP CAP:
All BLANKFORCE kiteboards are build with a 3D topside profil that allow to define the flex in the most efective way. The thinner tips increase the flex meanwhile the strong edge profile gives stiffness in the center
ADITIONAL 6 INCH DISTANCE WAKE INSERT POSITIONS:
BLANKFORCE ADVISORY; ENDURO and MK5 have WAKE-BINDING-INSERT_POSITIONS that allow you to ride with boots
SOFT FLEX ABSORPTION:
Freeride -allround kiteboards like the BLANKFOCE LOGIC got a smooth flex attitude. This helps to control the board in advance choppy water conditions
MEDIUM FLEX ABSORPTION:
Freestyle and advanced Freeride kiteboards like the BLANKFOCE MK3 or Wakepark Kite- and Wakeboards needs medium flex like the BLANKFORCE MK3 and ENDURO. This provide the best control-pop performance for high jumps and 180-double-step-sliders-moves. The control in choppy water is optimal for advanced rider
HARD FLEX ABSORPTION:
Wakestyle kiteboards for unhooked loaded jumps like the BLANKFORCE ADVISORY are provided with stiff shapes. The pop of the board is amazing. We recommend to use Wakeboard Bindings to maximize the edge control pressure.
45 DEGREE GLASS & CARBON LAYERS:
45 degree S-Glass or Carbon fiber directions to lock the torsion of Kiteboards
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON FIBER LAYERS:
Unidirectional fiber layers redirect the efforts in just one direction, these layers increase the pop of the boards
TWILL 2X2 BIAXIAL FIBER LAYERS:
Biaxial fiber layers with 90 degree to each other is the most used in the Kiteboard industry, it's good for flex, but best is to combine these layers with quad-axial or unidirectional layers
QUADAXIAL 2X2 + 2X2 QUADAXIAL FIBER LAYERS:
Quad-axial fiber layers with 90/90 + 90/90 degree combined to each other is perfect for light to medium flex and improve the general strength of the board
