TEXTREME® TECHNOLOGY (TXTR)
Lightweight. Stiff. Incredible. The TeXtreme® line is the most exclusive, high-performance construction in windsurfing. The Oxeon-built fabric allows for incredibly light PVC sandwich layups, with the added bonus of fully visible Carbon bottom graphics.
High quality, full Biax Carbon on the remaining parts of the deck of the Blast TXTR round off the TeXtreme® construction to create the lightest and stiffest board on the market, with crisp characteristics.
On the FreeWave STB TXTR, the TeXtreme® takes advantage of Innegra’s Resin absorption ability, weight reduction, stiffness, impact protection and UV-resistance, to create the strongest board possible in the lightest and stiffest board construction available today.
Less resin, more strength, less weight; it doesn’t get better than TeXtreme®.
BIAX INNEGRA CARBON LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (BXIC)
Our unique Biax Innegra Carbon Light Finish Technology has proven to be the ultimate construction for our Wave- and Freestyleboards. Last season, Fanatic took the initiative to take the next technical step by introducing this new and exclusive high-end fibre finish into all TE models, meeting the highest demands of our World Cup Team.
- 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.
- Added durability and 3 % stronger due to the woven fibre of the Carbon and Innegra
- Perfectly balanced (50 / 50). Strong, forgiving and impact resistant Innegra combined with a durable Carbon weave
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
- Biax Glass T-Stringer for maximum stiffness
- Light weight finish
CORK FLAX / WOOD COMPOSITE LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (CFWC)
Built with Flax, Cork, Wood Veneer 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.
- 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 is used across the entire base of the board forsuperior optics and a unique flex response
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 – 98 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.
DROP STITCH LIGHT TECHNOLOGY [PURE]
Our single layer Drop-Stitch Light technology provides a quality construction without reaching deep into your pockets. Still produced at one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers, this inflatable technology is created with top quality materials and production standards you’d expect from Fanatic.
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.
Our Ocean Minded spirit is the driving force behind our passion to create and innovate. Complemented by our ethos of ›protecting what you love,‹ we celebrate the challenges we face each day to come up with new ways to combine both.
Acknowledging the part we play in creating a cleaner, greener environment we work hard to source ethical and raw materials to utilise in the production, packaging and distribution of our products.
This year, we are proud to announce the expansion of our Gecko Eco Edition range, which now extends across three models, 110, 120 and 133. Achieving a premium product with a unique layup of flax, cork and bamboo, we’re one step closer to accomplishing an eco-friendly future.
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
Green is the prime colour of the world and we intend to do everything we can to keep it that way. As we evolve our brand and create new products, our primary goal is to reduce the ecological impact on the environment by using ethically sourced materials. Each year significant gains are made, from using ozone free foam cores and coloured resins vs spray paints, through to smart packaging and audited facilities. We embrace the challenges ahead and our Gecko Eco is a huge step in the right direction.
