Built with Flax, Cork, Wood and Bio Resin instead of the classic Glass and PVC sandwich, our Eco technology uses sustainable plant based raw materials wherever possible, without compromising performance.

 

Performance Features

  • Natural Flax fibre composite offers a very good strength / weight / flex ratio and replaces the classic oil based Glass / Carbon composite layup

  • Cork sandwich is not only a natural source, but it also brings superior shock absorption properties and replaces the oil based PVC sandwich

  • Sicomin’s GreenPoxy® Bio Resin contains a higher degree of plant based elements than traditional resin. Bio Resin is used in all models throughout the Fanatic range

  • Wood veneer from sustainable forestry is used across the entire base of the board for superior optics and a unique flex response
