Hadlow Freestyle MK2 - How do you think it will be?

Postby pwnd550 » Fri Jun 08, 2012 4:31 pm

Hey,
I just saw that the new Flexifoil Hadlow Freestyle MK2 board will be released in august. What do you guys think it will be like? Did Flexifoil release any information on how different it is from the current Hadlow freestyle board?

For those who have the current Hadlow freestyle board, what are your thoughts about it?

Have a nice day
Thomas.

I've read somewhere that it is going to be the same board with new graphics, as the previous one was so successful that there was nothing to change.

So basically it is easier to buy the current one since the new one will obviously be more expensive.

http://www.lsdkiteboarding.com/news/new ... -board-mk2 - here is the link that says so.

There will be a smaller size as well. Pwnd550 I think the 2011 boards are sold out now.

They're sold out on every site now? They don't produce them anymore?

Pwnd550 they seem to have those boards in hunstanton watersports, at least on the website. So if you are interested then search for it. I have no affiliation to Flexifoil, so I have no idea if they still produce them. I can only assume they don't, if new boards ship in august.

I believe although the outline hasn't changed the centre between the straps will be slightly stiffer for better performance. Also as mentioned there will be a 134 and 138. Finally I think possibly some quality issues with last year's model delaminating (although not had that problem with mine) so hopefully that issue is addressed this year.

Awesome board, annoying timing. I think I'm going to buy a 134 so I have both sizes!

I ride the 138 HadlowPro, and is an incredible board, you think of popping, and bam, you are up. Handles chop superb, very smooth, and minimal spray in the eyes. Very light, and good flex.

I have a contact in flexifoil, I asked him about a rumor I heard on the Ion line, and asked about the board, and here's what he replied:

"The new Hadlow boards are the same shape but they have been stiffened slightly through the middle of the board. Aaron and the guys found this to be better for loading up the board."

I honestly can't imagine them making this board any better.

Hope this helps, I'm thinking about getting the 134 in the new style, they never made the model I have (2011) in the smaller size.
