What you see is what you get. Each layer of the laminate structure is made of carbon fibre, the entire area &acirc;€“ top and bottom. Even the reinforcements are made of unidirectional carbon fibre. This reduces weight and, thanks to the best restoring forces, provides for an explosive jump. The exclusive use of carbon allows us to significantly reduce the thickness of all Fusions. The resulting thin, slightly burred edge allows for precise jumps and relaxed carving.
All Fusion boards have a hydro-dynamically shaped bottom contour. The most distinguishing features are the keel-shape; the central full length "V" and the double concave. The interaction of the concave and the "V" allow greater board widths and thus early planing, without compromising on control. The entire board can be edged at a steeper angle, which enables effective upwind ability and provides the best edging for jumps. In addition it enables increased smoothness and agility, for example, whilst switching from heel to toe side edge.
Channels are again used on the edge ends. These partial indents allow the realisation of two different bottom contours. If the rider edges hard the steeper inside curve is engaged and control and grip are increased. If the board is planing the flatter bottom curve is engaged which enhances the ability to glide through wind lulls. We have consciously not included any full length channels on the Fusion as the drift of the kite means that we never travel in an absolute line and the channels would simply cause unnecessary resistance.
