THE iSONIC IN DETAIL
This year we continue the introduction of the new iSonic concept design in 4 new sizes : 60, 63, 77 and 83. Our new iSonics fly over the water with unprecedented control and confidence. Calm and composed in rougher conditions, they accelerate relentlessly and freely without sticking, while enhanced jibe capability ensures even more competitive overtaking potential at critical jibe marks. The revised outlines are significantly wider at 20cm off the tail, while maintaining original tuck line on the cut-outs. Extra leverage off the fin improves light wind range, while behind the fin, we added Arrow cut-aways and moved the rear footstraps further back. Finally, we optimised mast track positions further back. Those changes deliver a significant difference on the water, especially when racing fully powered up.
Arrow Cut Aways
Our new Arrow Cut Away design is featured on the 67, 73 and 85. It’s a diagonal cut away behind the fin that gives you a super loose ride. Do you remember how a board loads up when hitting a gust? That feeling is history.
The new shapes got a wider tail while keeping the tuck line of the cut away unchanged. The result: More power for light wind and critical overtaking maneuvers. More control in tricky conditions.
The rear foot straps are further towards the back. This allows for less surface in the water and thus increases top end speed.
Mast track further back
Along with the back footstraps, we moved the mast track, further back which makes the board ride even more free.
Double Step Cutaways
Double Step Cutaways for added release and increased speed.
Drake Slick Footstraps
The Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, COÂ² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance. Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.
CARBON REFLEX SANDWICH
THE FLAGSHIP CONSTRUCTION
The iSonic Carbon Reflex is our flagship range. The light weight allows you to get going easier, plane through wind holes and get the best top speed. Carbon Reflex is our stiffest construction, giving you the best control when hitting chop and waves. Decks are built with the lightest grade of biaxial and uni-directional carbon fibre orientated between 45, 30 and 0 degrees for optimized flex and reflex characteristics. The bottom of the boards use an even lighter grade of uni-directional carbon fibre from nose to tail, with an extra 45 degree biaxial carbon layer in the tail area for added torsional stiffness.
Ultralight Weight Combined With New Materials
Ultralight weight, premium value and using more environmentally friendly materials. The bottom is built in full T700 uni-directional ï¬at-woven carbon for maximum stiï¬ness while the deck is 60% carbon, alternating between uni-directional and bi-axial carbon layers for optimized ï¬ex. The composite sandwich layers include the use of ultra-high density PET and PVC foam.
