For 2017 we have put all of our efforts into creating this female-oriented board. It is a real joy to ride and will help ladies progress. T5 WMN boasts outstanding riding properties which we achieved by using the improved Pre-Stress technology. Pre-Stress adds magic to the board’s construction by stretching wood fibres and strengthening them with glass fibers while they are in their outstretched form. You can’t see it with the naked eye, but you will definitely feel it in the water. The board gains improved torsion resistance which results in perfect upwind abilities and massive pop for jumps. The board is also “loaded” with inner energy which, combined with properly refined flex engineering, guarantees low weight, reactivity and soft landings. Thanks to using the Wavy Channels system we have achieved manoeuvrability while keeping full control over the board at the same time. The asymmetric shape with it's extended backside edge allows easier and more effective curves. The board is perfect for freeride and for learning freestyle. It performs well in any conditions: from flat through to choppy and small wave conditions. The T5 WMN meets all female expectations. It is lighter than the regular T5 model and has a narrower stance position, while the flex is suited in order to respond perfectly to the lighter and more delicate female body structure.
For intermediate to advance female riders looking for a freeride board with serious freestyle potential.
• Wavy Channels system makes the board ride like it is on rails.
• Improved Pre-Stress technology promotes the outstanding edge grip, pop and strengthens reactivity.
• Asymmetric outline facilitates curves and turns without any negative impact on upwindperformance.
• Stance and flex adjusted to women’s needs.
APS Technology added Pre-stress
Prestressing means the intentional creation of initial tension in a structure for the purpose of improving its strength properties.In kiteboarding, pre-stress allows the board to be loaded with energy during production. Storing the energy inside the board makes it a bit more stiff and much more torsion resistant, which results in astonishing POP. Pre-Stress technology also allows us to build thinner and lighter boards, yet still more durable.
Elliptical Progressive Concave
Combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and concave. The tail area is completely flat, whilst the centre section of the board features concave. This shape benefits from earlier planning.
CAV - Complete Anti-Vibration Technology
By using advanced core materials, laminates and variable flex zones, we managed to eliminate almost all vibrations that occur during the ride.CAV not only makes the ride smoother and faster, but also provides exceptional grip in all conditions.
Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape
Designed around the Human Concept, to enhance your performance and work in harmony with your body. We have tailored the outline of the heel side rail to provide more grip, better upwind performance and maximum POP. On the weaker toe side, the curve radius is increased to improve the carving potential and comfort. At the same time DAS decreases the foot pressure necessary to hold an edge.
This aerospace product has found its sweet spot in kiteboarding technology as well. It's 90% lighter than wood, but has great durability.Placed in different areas depending on board model, it reduces weight, gives pop, improves tensional response and allows accurate flex adjustment.
There is no better material for a board core than wood. With its harmonious characteristic, combining strength, flex, light weight and vibration damping, wood is still the uncrowned king of core materials.
This layout of fibers transfers power directly to the edges and creates perfect flex. As a result the board features aggressive filling, quick response and harmonious flexibility.
