Airush FS Team Kiteboard 2013
FS Team Overview
The FS Team is developed specifically to be the ultimate kiteboard ever made. Unique innovations in lamination, construction and core technology have enable us to offer a product that is simply lighter, more responsive at the stiffness required from a dedicated freestyle board. This unique development is the result of a complete rethink of the production process, along with the huge innovation found in the quad layer multiaxial 100% carbon construction.
The FS Team weight starts at 1.7 KGs making it one of the lightest competition freestyle boards on the market.
The Airush Multizone Biotech construction is a vertical wood core sandwich comprising of a dual density Balsa and Poplar core with ABS rail and tips. The higher density poplar stringer creates a hyper responsive center section while the outer balsa section minimizes the weight. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile tri axial laminate for all-round performance and durability.
The Airush Quad Carbon Biotech construction is a vertical wood core sandwich comprising of a Paulownia core with ABS rail and tips. Through significant development of the quad layer multiaxial 100% carbon construction, we have been able to reduce overall weight for the same relative stiffness by up to 40%. However the true secret to the performance is felt in the refinement of the response, where the four carbon layers are directionally optimized for torsion and longitudinal response. The result is an incredible combination of explosive pop, improved the control on landing and increased ride comfort.
"The FS Team can also be ridden with smaller fins, the 40mm fins are a popular choice with quite a few of the freestyle team, even in the bigger boards. Due to the lightweight construction (The FS team has no protective grindbase) The FS team is not suitable for bindings or sliders. With regard to the recommended size, if you are Over 75Kg the 140 is the best option, between 75 60 the 135 is ideal, and anything under 60kg I would recommend the 130."
