TEXTREME® TECHNOLOGY (TXTR)
Lightweight. Stiff. Incredible. The TeXtreme® line is the most exclusive, high- performance construction in windsurfing. Available on selected Fanatic boards, the TeXtreme® takes advantage of Innegra’s resin absorption ability, weight reduction, stiffness, impact protection and UV-resistance. The Oxeon-built fabric allows for incredibly light PVC sandwich layups, with the added bonus of a fully visible carbon rail and bottom graphics. High quality, full Innegra Carbon on the remaining parts of the deck round off the TeXtreme® construction to create the strongest, lightest, stiffest board on the market. Less resin, more strength, less weight; it doesn’t get better than TeXtreme®.
BIAX INNEGRA CARBON LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (BXIC)
Making its way into the 2017 Wave and TE Freestyleboards is the brand new Biax Innegra Carbon Light Finish technology. After the resounding success of using this high-end construction on our TE boards over the last three seasons, we took the initiative and next technical step by introducing a brand new, and exclusive Biax Carbon / Innegra fibre finish.
CUSTOM WOOD SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (CWS/LF)
A lightweight yet robust Wood and Glass fiber construction allows a very high strength-to-weight ratio. Combined mix of high end composite components, this is an extremely durable layup. The thick Sandwich, Wood and Fiberglass easily absorb high forces, even from the hardest landings! This construction is used on standard FreeWave models.
BIAX FIBRE / FULL PVC SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (BXF)
When combined with the Sandwich construction, this high quality Full Biax Glass and full PVC specification provides an optimized weight / stiffness / flex ratio.
- Absorbs force from impact extremely well due to 45 / 45 degree weave, and achieves maximum strength via an extra layer of fibres on top with a 90 degree weave
- Light and durable
- Full PVC construction
- Carbon T-Stringer for maximum stiffness
- Double PVC bottom sections for extra strength in the smaller Skate 86 / 93
- Light weight finish
HIGH RESISTANCE SKIN [HRS]
High Resistance composite technology is a durable construction for everyday use. A thick, durable outer skin gives the hull maximum strength, as well as making it ding and impact resistant. Strategic use of fibre reinforcements ensure adequate stiffness. In combination with the user-friendly EVA deck, HRS can be seen on the standard Gecko, as well as the Viper /Ripper ranges.
FULL BIAX CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY [FULL BXC & BXC]
This top quality and technologically advanced high-spec Biax Carbon, has a perfect weight / stiffness ratio as a result of its very fine weave and dynamic flex. Full Biax Carbon is used on the deck and bottom of the bigger Falcons and Falcon Formula for maximum stiffness and lightest weight possible.
On the smaller 89 – 99 l Falcons, it is used solely on the deck for better flex of the board in choppy conditions. When combined with the PVC Sandwich technology and Glass reinforcements, the Biax Carbon provides a balanced stiffness / flex / weight ratio on the Falcon Slalom, Speed and Formula.
DOUBLE LAYER HEAVY DUTY [DL HD]
Built to last, our Double Layer (HD) technology is an inflatable construction for heavy duty usage. The triple layer rail construction (Viper Air, Rapid Air, Rapid Air Touring & Tandem Air Premium) ensures better stiffness and durability. For the Ripper Air Windsurf, we use a Double Layer rail construction to save some weight. Stiffness and performance is guaranteed, as the Double Layer HD technology can take more than 20 PSI of air pressure if needed, we recommend 15 PSI.
CAD DESIGN - SHAPED BY SEBASTIAN WENZEL
Sebastian Wenzel has achieved great things in his shaping career and with over a decade of CAD experience under his belt, there is no question that he is one of the leading experts on computer aided board design. CAD shaping provides board builders with a platform to accomplish unprecedented levels of precision in the designs they produce and Sebastian does just that. CAD also allows us to store every board built since 2004 on a digital data- base so we can evolve, push boundaries and innovate, rather than recreate. Sebastian’s decades of board building knowledge and experience is funnelled into every design created. Through Sebastian’s lead and the collaboration of every Fanatic team member, we continue to build on our already existing library of facts, figures, successful shapes, proven rocker lines, volume flows and rail lines. As we advance it’s clear to see that Fanatic CAD shaping techniques work as our boards keep getting better. FACT.
Every Fanatic board proudly displays the Fanatic Ocean Minded logo. Representing our ethos of ›protect what you love‹, our mission is to play our part in a cleaner and greener environment. By using ethically sourced and raw materials where possible for the production, packaging and distribution of our products, we ensure an eco-friendly future for the brand.
Ozone-Free Foam Blanks
Blown without generating ozone and greenhouse gases and expanded using of just steam for zero waste / dust product.
Less Paint More Picturesque
By using optimized colour components and resin systems based on their solvent concentration we’ve managed to produce striking graphics that have minimized environmental consequences.
Streamlined transportation packaging without compromising protection demands less fuel to deliver and can be mostly recycled once again.
Audited Facilities For Healthier Workers
All of our audited production sites take particular care to extract all dust and gas particles through adequate vacuum and filtration systems.
KEEP IT GREEN
Keep It Green
Whilst creating new products, our primary goal is to reduce the ecological impact on the environment and use ethically sourced raw materials. Through advances in our construction techniques, significant gains have been made – ranging from the use of ozone-free foam cores, utilising coloured resins vs spray painting / stickers, smart packaging and audited facilities. There is a long way to go before our products are 100 % green / recyclable, we are ready for the challenge ahead to get there, step by step.
