Any feedback on F-One trax 09?

Postby Chriskef » Mon Aug 03, 2009 1:50 pm

Hi

I'm looking at this range but there seems very little said about the 09 as yet. I'm a bit confused by the sizing too. I'm 90kg - most companies used to offer a 135/41 or a 132/40 which fit just right. I was always told that width was a more important factor to consider than length. however, in the F-one range you have to go all the way up to 136 before you get 40cm width. I thought that all that rail in the water would limit your max wind range and the lesser width would reduce early planing. Have the design concepts changed? If so, which size would best suit me?

Thanks

Chris

i'm 75 kg and have the red 134 trax. tried the grey trax at 15knt and at 25 knt-
Had no problem edging with the grey one, it was just fine.
The trax feels a lot smaller than it's size. I think the grey trax will fit you just fine.
