The technology of our 2020 boards was improved to provide the best performance and more durability. Our boards are designed and shaped with a high-end technology with perfectly balanced weight, strength and impact resistant characteristics. Our latest MANEA race board technology combines pre-coated EPS foam, a 4OZ fiberglass layer, PMI foam as a deck reinforcement, a double full wrap 6OZ carbon layers, and a high performance gloss finish paint.
We also added a smooth comfort deck pad grip, as well as a tail kick pad to each one of our 2020 race board models.
PRE COATED EPS FOAM
Our boards are shaped out of high density EPS foam and built from custom designed materials. The technology delivers a high energy resulting in ultimate speed and drive. The pre coated EPS Foam is high density EPS - expanded polystyrene foam – and has a high strength to weight ratio and good compression stability.
We then add a 4 oz fibreglass layer on the deck, as well as a layer of PMI Foam as a deck reinforcement.
FIBERGLASS LAYER (UNDER PMI)
We use 4OZ fiberglass under the PMI foam to give more strength on the boards standing area, so the rider can use all this surface during the paddling without damaging the board on the long term.
PMI FOAM (DECK & PLUGS REINFORCEMENT)
We use PMI foam material in our technology and construction to reinforce specific part of our hard boards. Added to the fiberglass layer, we use the PMI foam on the rider standing area as a deck reinforcement, and we also use it to reinforce the fin box and alls plugs (Go Pro plug, GPS Plug, leash plug, etc.) . Thanks to its fined cell size, the PMI foam ensures the minimum possible uptake resin, it provides as well an outstanding mechanical strength.
6 OZ CARBON LAYERS
We use 2 full wraps carbon fibre within the laminate in our race boards construction. We add a 1st 6 oz carbon layer on the board to reinforce the whole race board while keeping its weight as low as possible, and then, a 2nd 6 oz carbon layer to add more strength to our boards.
LOGOS & HIGH PERFORMANCE GLOSS FINISH PAINT
We add our In Lams water transfert logo onto our hard boards, and we cover the entire board with a high performance gloss finish paint, which result into a higher speed and better penetration and glide in the water.
DECK PAD AND TAIL KICK PAD
Our new 425pro innovation SUP Deck pads are providing and awesome grip, and are making your hard board look fantastic with this modern design. Super soft under your feet with great grip texture, absorbing weight and shocks and reducing foot fatigue, especially in longer distance.
These new thick pads look like fish bones, with cut out lines. These deck pads are only 3mm with a snake aspect on the surface.
The 425pro innovation tail kick pad provides a better grip and great comfort.
