Rocker & Bottom Shape: Carried over from iSonic shapes for maximum speed, efficiency and acceleration.
Outline: 2.5cm wider on the 93 and 3cm wider on the 103 while keeping a flat deck, the new Flares are more stable and more balanced both before planing and when finishing off moves. The width carries under your front foot and combined with the narrow thick tail, you get easy carve, easy pop and easy air.
With their wider widths, the Flares could become 2.5cm shorter again for a more compact, reactive, lighter feel and even faster rotations. Whether you’re doing your first spock or flaka or your already on to the next level with clean, high konos, culos, paskos or kabikuchis, the new Flares are stable, quick and light.
Rails: The 7mm new, extra thick tail with extra volume make for a more comfortable stance, easier reverse slide and a more forgiving freestyle board overall. Also new for 2016, the rails have been softened and rounded up a fraction to improve comfort and slide smoothness without affecting speed or early-planing.
Fins: New for 2016, the Drake Ready to Freestyle by Taty Frans fits into a PowerBox fin for maximum strength.
Construction: Super light, deck and bottom 450 Carbon Reflex construction for minimal weight, responsive impact-absorbing flex.
