CARVED has never made such a big board - 161x50 centimeter - those are the astonishing dimensions of the ?Predator?. It?s abilities are equally big. This light weight light wind sensation will set new standards in light wind riding. Like all CARVED boards, it is handcrafted on the German island of Fehmarn and offers the famous ride characteristics such as defined flex, at the right places, for powerful jumps.
CARTAN ? the finest and most advanced carbon
Cartan Carbon Hiss-Tec on Fehmarn is the first kite board manufacturer in the world to process this 12K-carbon fibres. The high tech stitched multi-axial carbon fabric differs from ordinary carbon fabric in that woven threads keep the fibres at an exact 30 degree angle. In addition the board is made in the CARVED-typical uni-body construction method. Thanks to the tight and parallel fibre layout impact forces, on landing, are redistributed over a larger area.
With CARTAN CARVED is able to add to its legendary ability to perfectly combine two technically disparate elements ? flex and stiffness. The result is a board with the ability for unprecedented explosive jumps as well as a comfortable and effective upwind ability. The high strength of fine carbon fibre allowed us to reduce the amount of material used and as a result the weight of the board.
Razor Fins ? for grip and agility
No other fin has the same amount of grip and agility. The shape of the razor fins allows them to be placed further out. Here the fin profile is at its most effective and allows for maximum guidance during both take offs and landing.
The new razor fin might cut like a razor through the water but CARVED has made sure, by ensuring that the leading edge is not sharp, that there are no nasty surprises when you come unstuck.
