The riding behaviour of a lightweight board, which has extensively been studied, designed and constructed, is unique.

Construction Technology

For a weightless board a weightless board is needed. CERN fr-w core is 100% carbon with hard PVC and heavy duty epoxy resin. Anything more is extra weight with no reason. For the perfect board the application of the fine material must be made by hand. That costs more but only then we can be proud of having constructed the perfect board. To understand perfectly the weightless board riding feeling you have to ride it, by trying to explain it with words it’s like a bird trying to explain how is it to fly to a turtle. CERN fr-w is made for flying.

.

Shape

45mm rocker is enough for immediate turning, automatic pop and a ride without spray in any sea condition. A 12 mm deep concave ensures ride on a cushion of air and really soft landings. And this can be achieved only by hands. Quarto-circle rails is the support base of the board on the water. Also made by hands but it’s worth it because of the high degree of control which offers.

Suitability

If your tricks are 50% Unhooked and 50% Hooked, CERN FR-W is your board. An all-rounder freeride – freestyle from medium to expert level, also perfect for waves.

Guarantee

We provide you with 3 years guarantee. That means that if the board breaks within the limits of normal usage we provide you with free of charge service or a total replacement. Guarantee is not valid if board is used on ramps, sliders, kickers or riding on hard materials. Avoid rocks and long term sun, or low temperature, exposure

Our Return Policy:
If you are not completely satisfied with your board, please return it to us within 30 days upon receipt, and you will receive a refund excluding shipping costs.

Here are some facts:

.

Core of expanded PVC
We prefer high quality PVC instead of wood for the following reasons

Even the lightest wood that is suitable for the construction of a board is four times heavier than the heavy expanded PVC.
The flexibility properties of the wood, greatly affect the reactions of the carbon grid when it come to force absorbing. Instead, the neutrality of PVC ensures the ultimate smooth riding.
Wood as it is an organic material coming from nature cannot be guarantied for specific properties. The Swiss factory, which supplies the PVC cores for our boards, is the best guarantor of a fixed, premium quality raw material for a perfect board.

.

Carbon of a diagonal variable angle
We use carbon because it is the most suitable material for high quality constructions. The angle of the fibers of the grid in relation to the axis of the plank, affects the bending of the board during the ride. For that reason a 45 degree angle, changing progressively towards the edges to 60 degree angle, results to a more hard in the center board and less hard at the edges board. So we provide you with the relaxed ride and softer landings board properties.

.

Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP)
The Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP) is the high-end laminating technique in which we use vacuum pressure to drive resin into dry fiber-reinforcement material. Materials are laid up to dry in the mold and the vacuum is applied before introducing the resin. Once a complete vacuum is achieved, resin is fully absorbed into the laminate via carefully placed resin-feed tubing. Vacuum infusion is a completely closed production method that ensures the highest quality for the end product having no impacts for the environment.

.

Deep concave
A 12 mm concave is impossible to be achieved in a conventional production board, so is impossible for any conventional board in the world to ride the chop like as in a glassy water, and to land on a cushion of air.

.

Quarto circle rails.
A 3d, hand made, quarto circle rail, transforms the entire length of the board to a large keel, so you have incredibly upwind and perfect grip while on the water.

.

The accessories
Very thick pads on a carbon plate, wide turtle footstraps and a handle, four G10 fins and stainless steel screws, which weigh less than one kilogram.
