The Flytech construction is
most suitable for high volume kiteboards due to its low density
and therefore core weight. The lightweight core is combined with
unidirectional and standard glass and a combination of various sandwich
Within the flytech contruction major advances have been made in
the new optimized core density. Lower volume boards such as the
Choptop or 5’6” Converse feature a higher core density, while higher
volume boards such as the converse 6’4” and full sandwich construction
in the converse wood, feature a progressively lower density core.
A new feature for the 2008 Flytech construction is T-Stringer technology,
while the footstrap and stepping areas on the Flytech cores are
reinforced with Wood and PVC sandwich layups, the forward section
of the board is reinforced with the T-Stringer to prevent bucking
of the laminate and maintain the low weight.
