Nouveau boîtier US en carbone moulé

Les Glide V3 sont équipées de notre nouveau boîtier US en carbone moulé, développé en interne par Takoon. Grâce à leur rigidité incomparable, ces nouveaux boitiers apportent une connexion au foil inégalée, une parfaite transmission des efforts et un feeling sans pareil.

Nos nouveaux box de foil sont fabriquées en carbone préimprégné, polymérisé à haute pression et haute température dans un moule en acier. Ce processus permet d’obtenir un boîtier avec des fibres longues de carbone bien compactés, ce qui le rend tout simplement indestructible et ultra rigide.

Grâce à cette construction, si l’on compare nos boitiers carbone aux boitiers classiques comme les Futures, le gain de rigidité et de robustesse est considérable. En effet, généralement fabriqués en plastique injecté chargé avec de la fibre de verre en fibres courtes, les boitiers classiques peuvent présenter de la déformation à l’effort. Sur l’eau, cela se ressent sous forme d’un temps de latence dans la réactivité du foil, que ce soit pour le pumping, pour carver, ou pour les manœuvres. Avec nos nouveaux boîtiers carbone, la transmission des efforts est instantanée et la connexion est ultra rigide.

Plus longs, ces nouveaux boitiers donnent beaucoup plus de liberté de placement de votre foil. Ils viennent en 2 tailles: 33 cm et 38 cm en fonction de la taille de la planche. Ils sont ainsi plus longs de 6 cm et 11 cm que les boîtiers futurs. Ainsi, vous pourrez affiner vos réglages, afin de trouver la position personnelle qui vous convient le plus.

Ils bénéficient aussi d’une double ouverture par rails pour un montage plus rapide : plus besoin de démonter entièrement vos boulons de la platine, il suffit simplement de desserrer les vis, de faire glisser le foil dans les ouvertures et de resserrer les vis et hop, le tour est joué.

If you hesitate between two sizes, think about your level of practice. The more comfortable you are, the more you will be able to orient yourself on a smaller board. Otherwise, opt for comfort in your progression by choosing a board with a little more litres.

Rigidity

Extreme

The shape of the Slate V2 Airbus has been optimized to make paddling and surfing easier. Its outline is inspired by surfboards, with a refined pin tail that makes the Slate V2 a carving machine. This pin tail allows the Slate V2 to keep its length for more paddling comfort without compromising the board's manoeuvrability. The bevelled rails of the Slate V2 will allow you to engage your curves even more while providing you with an excellent rebound on touchdowns and optimal grip. The Slate V2 offers efficient and comfortable paddling with its rocker designed for prone foil. Its nose is round but not excessive, which is the perfect compromise between gliding when paddling and bulk in flight. For better gliding and, therefore, easier take-off, its hull is very elaborate and boosts the flow of water flows. We obtained this ideal shape for the Slate V2 thanks to our high-quality full-carbon construction, which brings unparalleled rigidity and durability to the market. The magic happens in our factory in Portugal, thanks to our vacuum infusion carbon technology.

Materials

The raw materials and equipment for the Slate V2 Airbus, from carbon fiber to the pad, are selected for their quality, as well as for the proximity of our suppliers, all of whom are European.

We have taken this approach even further by partnering with Airbus, allowing us to build our Slate V2 using recycled carbon from the waste generated by the factories of this aerospace giant.

Manufacturing technique

The Slate V2 Airbus is a fully carbon board manufactured using the vacuum infusion technique. This manufacturing method allows us to achieve an optimal ratio between carbon fibers and resin, resulting in an ultra-rigid, lightweight, and durable board.

Vacuum infusion ensures an even distribution of carbon fibers and resin, creating a strong and resilient structure. Thanks to its carbon construction and vacuum infusion, the Slate V2 Airbus offers an optimal combination of rigidity, lightness, and durability. You'll be able to enjoy a high-performance board that meets all your expectations, whether you're seeking speed, maneuverability, or stability.
