Highlights of the SESSION 54 in detail
The structure of the new Carbon Pro generation has been further optimized. Forces are optimally absorbed and create a greate smoothness. At the same time, the carbon kiteboard offers maximum precision at all time, combined with absolutely direct in feedback. The reinforcement structure around the pads has been redesigned and offers high stability with lowest weight.
The wood core, the heart of every Carbon Pro kiteboard, has also received an update. We have optimized the damping properties and fine-tuned the composition with the carbon scrim layers an even more harmonious ride.
In terms of design, the new Carbon Pro Kiteboards now come with elegant white. The strong contrast and the timeless white harmonizes with the straps, pads and fins and helps you find the kiteboard quickly in the water.
Like all kiteboards in the Carbon Pro Line, the SESSION is made with the high-end X³ carbon layer. The non-woven carbon fibres distribute forces optimally and build up extremely flat, which significantly reduces the use of resin. The resulting weight is extremly noticeable at all times. Carbon Pro boards are livelier, much easier to turn and convey an indescribable feeling in the air.
Super lightweight, optimal construction and the 3D milled wood core provide an ultra-direct riding experience. The direct feedback is in no comparison to a conventional fibreglass kiteboard. The playful control and maximum agility take you to a new level of kiteboarding.
Extreme lightwind agility
154 x 47cm – a lot of surface area that brings a lot of lightwind performance. Due to the SESSION shape, the playfulness is always present. The minimum weight puts the agility crown on the SESSION 54. In the low end, the SESSION sorts itself behind the DOORs, but it trumps in terms of freedom and offers all riders maximum liveliness in lightwind kiteboarding.
Top speed in just a few seconds! Like a racing car, the Carbon Pro SESSION pulls away with immense acceleration. The speed rush never stops and the Carbon Pro SESSION reaches a very high top speed. Perfect for speed freaks.
Outstanding upwind riding
The perfectly tuned surface, the low weight, as well as the bottom shape on the bottom give the Carbon Pro SESSION 54 terrific planing properties. In addition it has a fantastic upwind performance, only beaten by the DOORs with their strong concave.
The Carbon Pro SESSION 54 is built for the widest possible wind range. Its advantage already starts in light wind, deliverying very good planing perforamnce and maximum agility. But even in medium and stronger wind conditions or very strong gusts, the SESSION 54 offers very good control and can be ridden for a long time.
Handcrafted in Germany
Each Carbon Pro Board is individually manufactured. Highest precision and experience in handling resin and carbon enable the extreme performance and weight values.
What´s the technology behind the SPLEENE Carbon Pro SESSION 54?
Half a decade of experience has gone into the Carbon Pro line. The latest generation combines all development highlights and innovations:
The bottom of the Carbon Pro Line has a single concave. After numerous tests with different bottom constructions, the Monoconcave Bottom achieves the best performance in light winds with ultra-light carbon construction. The concave is deeper in the center of the board and flattens out slightly towards the tips to ensure the best turning characteristics.
X³ Carbon construction
The Carbon Pro Line uses a carbon layup specially developed for SPLEENE. The fibres are not interwoven but arranged next to each other. This allows minimum resin use with maximum efficient force flow. The combination of carbon layers in -30° | 0° | +30° distributes torsional forces optimally, far better than conventional 45° arrangements.
Production is done by hand in Germany to ensure the greatest possible care in the manufacturing process.
High-end carbon kiteboards are manufactured at the construction limit in order to bring minimal weight to the scales. The Carbon Pro kiteboards are specially reinforced at the neuralgic points in the pad area. This allows for optimal durability and breakage safety.
Slight Concave Outline at center
The outline of the Carbon Pro SESSION 54 has a slight concave in the center, which allows the best upwind performance. The waterway becomes longer and the board has less drift. In addition, the flex of the board creates a geometry that keeps it effortlessly upwind. The curved outline at the tips also give the board a playful board feel and provide excellent grip in carved turns.
The top side of the Carbon Pro SESSION 54 is built in a 3D structure. Forces are optimally absorbed and distributed. In addition, extra weight can be saved. The structure determines the exact the Flex the Carbn Pro Boards. The kiteboard gets its playful feeling and always provides excellent grip in carved turns.
All SPLEENE Kiteboarding Carbon Pro Line kiteboards are produced with a CNC-milled wood core. Thanks to the outstanding damping properties of wood, the SPLEENE kiteboards have a very high riding comfort and protect the joints for many hours of riding. With the ultra-light Carbon Pro boards, we do not abandon the unsurpassed properties of wood. Even if foam cores achieve better values in terms of weight, the riding feeling of wood remains unsurpassed.
Straps, Pads and Finns
The SPLEENE straps, pads and fins are perfectly matched to SPLEENE kiteboards. The pads are anatomically adapted to the foot and provide extra good hold by the toe rim. For the straps we offer the Standard Straps with Velcro and the Pro Straps with ratchets. All straps allow different mounting positions and can be individually adjusted. The SPLEENE kiteboarding fins are made of extra hard G10 material for best performance.
