The Carbon Pro Line heralds a new era of lightwind kiteboarding
Carbon Pro Session 54
High performance lightwind freeride board
Handcrafted in Germany
154 x 47 cm
The Carbon Pro Session 54 is the most agile lightwind board of the Carbon Pro line-up. It combines its enormous wind range with the perfect agility of a 2250g high end carbon board.
The Carbon Pro Session 54 is the best board for every rider, who seeks for maximum freeride and freestyle performance in lower to medium wind conditions.
– minimum weight
– maximum agility
– enormous carbon power
– precise board control
Superior at all points – the Carbon Pro Line boards beat everything that is possible with regular kiteboard construction materials. By the exclusive usage of a multi-layered carbon lattice, the Carbon Pro boards enter a new weight and performance dimension.
With its 2250g, the Carbon Pro Session 54 offers an increased agility over its 9cm shorter brother, the Session 45, from the High Tech Line. Inertia is massively reduced and the responsiveness of the Carbon Pro Session 54 can be felt on the first meters. The large surface of the board allows great planing performance and even in stronger wind conditions controlling the board is an easy thing.
For Freestyle, the superior preferences of the carbon lattice shows its full power. The high end carbon of the Carbon Pro Session 54 can be edged hard with minimal input power and it loads up energy very fast. The loaded energy is guided maximally into the pop with a very high precision and while being airborne the Session 54 can hardly be felt at the feet. On landing, the carbon lattice absorbs the impact very well and guidance is directly established.
The Carbon Pro Session 54 is a high performance freerider and plays, with all other Carbon Pro Line boards, in a league of their own. Once taken for a ride and a switch back won’t be easy…
“Maximum performance meets highest comfort, lowest weight and an absolutely easy control. Never before a lightwind board felt so small and alive.”
Kitelife Magazin Nr. 54 (translated by SPLEENE)
Overview on main characteristics
The Carbon Pro Session 54 is, like all boards of the Carbon Pro Line, produced with a multi-layered carbon lattice. Non woven carbon fibres spread forces perfectly and build up less high, allowing minimal usage of epoxy resin. The resulting weight of only 2250g is extremely noticeable at all time. Carbon Pro boards are highly responsive, agile and an indescribable feeling while being airborne.
The energy load and recovery speed of the multi-layered carbon lattice can’t be achieved with regular kiteboard materials or often used layers of “design carbon”. The Carbon Pro Session 54 has an enormous amount of power, mixed with very precise force control. Especially for take-off, the superior preferences of the high-end carbon show their full strength and release an astonishing pop.
Handcrafted in Germany
Every Carbon Pro Board is individually crafted. Highest precision and experience ensure the extreme performance and weight preferences of the carbon kiteboards.
The Carbon Pro Session 54 is build for maximum wind range. Its main strength lies in light wind, to combine maximum agility with very good planing performance. But also in medium to strong wind conditions, or heavy gusts, the Session 54 offers a very high level of control and can be kept riding.
The Session 54 is the most responsive and playful board of the Carbon Pro Line. The outline, mixed with the low weight give a very high agility, inviting to new freestyle tricks at all time. The curved tip outline creates a very good grip in turns and allows maximum edging. The shape in the bottom of the board guarantees a smooth landing and together with a low weight, guidance is established right after touchdown.
Massive planing and upwind performance
The large surface, low weight as well as the special grinding at the bottom give the Carbon Pro Session 54 great planing performance. The board accelerates very early and very fast and reaches a great top speed. Additionally the upwind performance is only beaten by the Doors with their concave outline.
High comfort and no spray
The combination of carbon flex, shape and low weight create a very good comfort. Even in very choppy water, the Carbon Pro Session 54 will run smoothly. And the optimized outline will definitely prevent any spray water.
Its size, low weight and high comfort make the Carbon Pro Session 54 from the first meters on to a perfect board. A steep learning curve is guaranteed and with an increasing level, more and more of the high performance potential can be unleashed.

What our customers say
Thank you guys for that board. I always liked a more agile shape on lightwind twintips, but this one blew my mind!

It is so much fun to play with it. I wished I had more of these light boards, it is even lighter than my small one. (translated from German)

High End Carbon Construction
X³ Carbon Construction
Within the Carbon Pro Line, a specially for SPLEENE developed multi-layered carbon lattice is used. The carbon fibres are not woven with each other, optimising force flow and allowing minimal usage of epoxy resin.
All Carbon Kiteboards are handcrafted in Germany, to guarantee maximum precision during the production process.
Grinded base side
The bottom sides of the Carbon Pro Boards have a special, manual grind, creating a shark-skin surface. This reduces water drag, resulting in faster acceleration and increased top speed.
The bottom of the Carbon Pro Boards has a single concave shape. After many tests of different bottom shapes, the single concave proved as most effective on lightwind carbon constructions. The concave is deeper in the centre of the board and flats a bit out towards the tips, resulting in better turning performance.
Slight Concave Outline at Center
The outline of the Carbon Pro Session 54 with a slight concave at the centre is responsible for the enormous upwind performance. The waterway is longer, resulting in less drift. The flex of the board creates a geometry that lets the Session 54 easily face upwind. Additionally the curved outline at tips gives the board a much more playful feeling, with excellent grip in carved turns.
All SPLEENE Carbon Pro Line boards are produced with a form-glued, CNC-milled wood core.
The wood core has added PU rails, as well as reinforced fin- and insert positions.
