The Elite II – Status defined
The Elite is more than a board, it is a status. To complement its superiority, the Elite board comes in a boardbag and the board is mounted, ready to hit the water.
Performance wise, the Elite was designed as a high end freeride board. As with every carbon board, the Elite has quite a lot of pop and dynamics, so the load ‘n’ pop will not disappoint. Unlike other carbon boards, we believe the Elite II is the most flexible carbon board out there. It definitely is comfortable to ride. Due to its extreme light weight, it is very simple to maneuver and thanks to the double concave bottom shape, it handles chop extremely well.
Brand new layup features two layers of carbon on the top and two on the bottom. One layer is the CompFlex 4T5 carbon with 45 degree angled fibers for optimal torsion flex, which makes the board stiffer in heel to toe direction. This is topped with a brand news HMX-CF2 carbon which gives the board strength along the length of the board. The HMX-CF2 carbon is the thinnest, lightest and highest tensile strength carbon material. Thanks to its properties it provides a very comfortable medium flex.
With a patent pending Air Inside Core technology, we were able to save another 140 grams compared to the previous Elite. This makes the Elite II the lightest board in the world.
