When people say its heavy or light it would be nice to really have the numbers.

Just got following information out of a german kite magazine:
Trax Limited Edition: 3,7kg
Trax "normal": 3,4kg

I rode the 135x41 and it is the best board I have ever tried (I have no affiliation with F-One). I wasnt aware of any weight issues at all, it just seemed 'normal'. The pads and straps are super comfy, it was smooth in chop, carved well, poppped well, it made me want to ride faster and harder than I usually do. The issue in the UK is getting hold of one, and the price ...

I'm getting a new board for light winds, but i have some doubts between F-one Trax 3 135x41 or the Cabrinha Caliber 136x42!
I have a F-one Daemon and for me is the best board that i try, but it's a little short 129x39 for light winds, and i weight about 90kg!

Anyone try this two?
THKS!! :jump:

I am thinking to get an F-One Trax 3 for myself too, thought to go for a 136x39 o 136x41 to use in strong winds though, and I am 87Kg! I don't like boards too small, and I already have an all round 140x43 which is great on low to mid winds... OOps, forgot, I ride in VERY choppy conditions and I am into freeride, jumps and waves, mainly upwind!
Any advice much appreciated, thanks.

Luckyfox - I just got the caliber 133 last week and I love it to bits, I demo'd it out in <12 knots with a 12m sb3. And was able to get up and going, even upwind... Kinda. Only been out once with my own board so far but it was on of the best sessions I've ever had absorbs chop and rickets upwind. If I ever decide to get a smaller board I'll be keeping the 133 as my lightwind board. That said I'm only 73kg

Please note that you have successfully revived an old 2008 thread about last years board. The current model is Trax4.
Good luck in your board search, no matter what you are looking for. :bye:
