Fast Falcons

Fanatic have just sent us a teaser for their 2010 slalom designs.

Fanatic were the first to throw the trend of super-wide boards out of the window with a return to sleeker and more manageable shapes. This season they’ve created six hot models with a range of racy body shapes, and a supersonic missile for those brave enough to dare.

Sebastian's stretched the outlines of the smaller, high-wind sizes and reduced the length of the light wind styles for minimum drag and max lift. Subtle reductions in the double concaves have supposedly made major changes to control and turning. They’ve also straightened the outline between the feet and slimed-down tail widths for low friction gybing control.

The Falcon Speed comes in a light carbon sandwich construction, and all six no-compromise Slalom models – in 86, 102, 112, 122, 133 and 145 litre sizes – come in Biax Carbon Sandwich Light.

Key features for 2010 include a straighter outline between the straps, drawn in 75° pintail for lower drag and easy gibing, a straighter outline and thinner rails between the straps for better comfort and carving, softer rails towards the nose for cutting through chop and turning, open V in the tail for maximum release, and new sizes to fit all riders and PWA Slalom 63 format.
