Starboard presenta oggi a ferragosto il “gruppo 2” delle nuove tavole 2015, quello slalom e freeride. Tante le novità e iniziamo con la presentazione delle nuove macchine da corsa: l’iSonic 2015!
Tutto il resto lo trovate QUI.
The iSonics are Starboard’s slalom boards.
They are fast racing machines designed for the highest top speeds, the highest average speeds, and the quickest accelerations with powerful overtaking abilities throughout a wide wind range.
They continue to set the benchmark and be one of the most advanced slalom boards on the market.
For 2015 the iSonic has gone through a rigorous design process with every size being upgraded with a new shape.
* Lightwind models 110, 120, 130 have new, wider planing surface areas.
* Medium wind models like the 107 are 1cm wider, and the 97 has new cutaways and a thinner nose.
* Highwind models 80 and 87 are completely new, moving from the classic longer style design to the compact, slim and wide style design.
For 2015, Starboard also introduces the new Slalom Experience concept, with the iSonic 110 AST available exclusively packaged with 7.5 or 8.5m Overdrive rig by Severne Sails.
The iSonics are the only slalom range in the Starboard range.
They are the boards that have the quickest acceleration, the highest average speed and the second-highest top speed in our board range.
The iSonic Speed Specials are ultimately the boards that achieve the highest top speeds).
Breakdown of 2015 Models:
The lightwind models 110, 120, 130 have new, wider planing surface areas by increasing the width in the zone between the footstraps.
This wider planing surface area improves the boards efficiency: more lift and less drag for a higher top end speed.
The iSonic medium wind model 107, is 1cm wider and the 97 has new cutaways and a thinner nose.
Our highwind models 80 and 87 are completely new, moving from the classic longer style design to the compact, slim and wide style design.
For a long time, the highwind models remained relatively long and slender.
As the control and wind range of Starboard’s slim, compact concept improved, the high wind models could finally benefit and transition into the new design philosophy.
Science Behind the iSonic:
The iSonics are available in two construction categories: Wood, for more comfort, and Carbon, for sharper acceleration, a stiffer feel and earlier planing.
The Carbon construction, internally known as Carbon Reflex, uses45 degree biaxial carbon on the deck of the smaller boards and 30 degree biaxial carbon on the bigger ones to allow the board to flex and re-bound responsively. Uni-directional carbon is used on the bottom of all boards. This construction is ultra- light, stiff yet comfortable and responsive.
“THE MOST ADVANCED BOARD TECHNOLOGY”
The iconic iSonics: our flagship slalom range incorporating every ounce of Starboard R&D technology, every gram of our team’s design experience, and driven by the most successful racing team in windsurfing.
The iSonics are available in two constructions: Wood and Carbon in the following sizes: 80, 87, 90, 97, 107, 110, 120, and 130 liters.
