Spleene Carbon Pro Line
High performance freeride kiteboards
The consequent application of the carbon lattice does not only give the Carbon Pro boards an unbelievable low weight. The structural characteristics outperform everything that is possible with regular kiteboard construction materials.
The low weight, below 2000g on the RIP 39, gives the board a fantastic lightness and playful handling, that you only expect from much smaller boards. The boards take easily off the water and while being airborne, they seem almost not existent. The high-end carbon fibres deliver outstanding riding dynamics. The structure is able to load up allot of energy and release it in a very precise way, delivering an exceptional pop. Besides that, carbon shows for sure very good flex and comfort characteristics and in combination with the wood core, all vibrations are eliminated.
Details on the development and production process of the Carbon Pro Line
X³ Carbon Construction
There are 3 layers:
– One layer with the strongest roving in 0° to give the board the requested stiffness and flex
– One layer in +27,5° and another layer in -27,5°to avoid torsion and produce a very responsive board with maximum low weight
The advantage of a multi-layered carbon lattice is that you do not have waves in the rovings like you have at woven fabrics. In the multi-layered carbon lattice the rovings are straight oriented to the tension to enable the carbon work in the best possible way.
All layers are fixed with a very thin seam to avoid movement during laminating process (see picture).
