RADICAL5 (released in 2015)
The RADICAL5 is the performance crossover kiteboard line by Flysurfer for freeride, freestyle and wakestyle. Experience their new riding sensation, with reworked rocker curve and flex, allowing maximum control, more grip, less spray and explosive pop as result. Performance on demand!
127×36 / 132×39,5 / 134×40 / 138×42 / 144×46
All RADICAL5’s have a hybrid core, achieving perfect harmony of board weight, performance and durability. A foam core is used on the toe-side in the longitudinal direction, providing a significant reduction in board weight. In the heel-side that is under more force and load, a robust wood core is used. Guaranteeing dynamic recovery force of the board, while retaining huge amounts of strength.
TORSION FIBRE LAYERS
The innovative assembly of a unidirectional woven layer lengthwise and an additional woven layer (torsion layer) at a 45-degree-angle achieves considerably higher torsion stiffness, which is reflected in increased jumping performance while remaining great comfort.
The new rocker curve provides smooth riding even in the toughest conditions, and gives more control in fast landings, after kiteloops or unhooked moves. The central part of the rockerline remains flat, retaining very early gliding and effortless upwind performance.
The deep heel-side channel provides good grip, and makes it possible to set your edge more effectively before jumping.
TUCKED UNDER EDGE RAILS
The RADICAL5 board edge has been cut off at a 45-degree-angle, the same as how surfboards have been manufactured traditionally. This makes the board very controllable, even in choppy conditions and reduces spray.
The additional grabrails are very soft, but still offer the best control for board-offs and one-footers. Thus, holding the board in the air has become easier then ever. The grabrails can easily be glued to the deck.
CLICK’N’RIDE FIN SYSTEM
This innovative quick release fin system allows for fin disassembly in seconds. Whether for traveling or just to protect your car and other equipment during transport, this system will make your kite life easier.
All of our boards have a special high-quality UV and scratch-resistant coating, thus offering a long product life. The graphic design is protected under the coating, so that it does not get damaged if the board is slightly scratched.
The asymmetrical rounder and shorter toe-side outline, increases control when riding toe-side and provides increased maneuverability while carving.
