CORE Fusion - The new full CARTAN® Carbon Kiteboard

More time on the water and less time trying to decide which board to ride: the FUSION takes the complexity out of the board choice dilemma.

We have developed a real CROSSRIDE board that covers all aspects of kitesurfing without compromising on any of them. The Fusion is ideal for riders of all levels and will develop with you as you continue to improve. We have transferred our expertise from our custom CARVED boards to a high-tech CARTAN® high-performance carbon series production board.
Fusion Board In Action

The Fusion was constructed in the most elaborate way for a series construction board - by using only the finest materials. The board is made of 100% CARTAN® high-performance carbon; each layer is made of pure carbon fibre. This guarantees minimum weight and optimum flex properties. The complex bottom with double concave and ‘V’ provides more drive and direction, when needed, and is responsible for the unique riding experience.

It goes through choppy water as if there was a cushion of air under the board. We call this Hydrodynamic Bottom Contour. The core wood was milled in a special Diamond 3D Shape CNC. This ensures the harmonious development of flex together with torsional rigidity. The new high-performance fins, provide the Fusion with the maximum amount of directional stability whilst maintaining high levels of agility.

Yep to date its one of the best boards I have had the pleasure of riding
Image

Cores Advertisement is spot on
I am a big guy and normally ride 135 / 42 but the Core size board would be 141 / 42
Just a bit longer
The board
The first thing was how it soaked up the chop very comfortable ride.
Up wind the board is loose until you lock in the rail, then it hammers up wind
Manoeuvrability the V in the bottom of the board makes it super smooth when going rail to rail it also feels smaller

Nose kick
A little more than I would normally have but the board is longer didn’t think I would notice it but definitely better riding in chop and going over waves

Hope this helps I just love it

Ps we got a 132 /39 for the wife she is small and only has size 4 uk feet Core do a small foot strap so ask for the small strap when ordering
She loves it as its kind on her knees

Let a friend try the board 3 days later he got one
All I can say is if you have a Core retailer ask if he has a demo board
