In addition, the continuous wooden core ensures smooth running. Even during long sessions your knees and joints are always comfortable. Due to the specially shaped outline on the tips, there is guaranteed no annoying splash water.
What´s the technology behind the SPLEENE High Tech RIP?
Since birth of Spleene Kiteboarding in 2002, allot happened. Our total know-how is united in this 9th generation of our High Tech Line:
Advanced Jet Bottom
The bottom shape is characterized by a channel with a double concave. As a result, the kiteboard slides early. Instead of a simple radius, a parabolic shape is used in the Spleene Advanced Jet Bottom. Compared to a conventional double concave, the Advanced Jet Bottom allows significantly more edge grip and pushes the water along the edges. In choppy conditions, the effect is very clear. In addition, the water surface is broken up when the kiteboard hits it, thus allowing a smooth landing after jumps.
Shark Skin Surface
The bottom of the kiteboard is matt finished by using a special technique. This gives the kiteboard a shark skin effect with reduced friction. The result is higher speed and faster acceleration.
All SPLEENE Kiteboarding High Tech Line Kiteboards are produced with a CNC milled wood core glued in shape. Thanks to the outstanding damping characteristics of wood, the SPLEENE Kiteboards have a very high ride comfort and also protect the joints for many hours. of riding.
The slight elevation on the side of the kiteboard increases comfort enormously. This makes kitesurfing a lot easier without cutting or splashing water – especially in harsh conditions.
Spider Frame 3D Deck
The upper deck of the Spleene Kiteboard is equipped with the new Spider Frame 3D structure. In the area of the grab handle, the kiteboard becomes more flexible and gets noticeably more comfortable. The kiteboard is faster to drive, even in rough choppy water.
The glossy finish of the kiteboard is provided with an UV-protection. Even many hours in the blazing sun will not harm your kiteboard and the colors will keep shining like the first day. Tag.
