2022 North Trace
First out, last in
Light wind? No problem. The all-new Trace has a progressive straight, square outline and large surface area for early planing and upwind performance in the lightest winds. A Centre-V Spine and longitudinal quad channels provide balanced torsional stiffness, superb traction and more control. The progressive medium-low rocker is ideal for flatwater. It also enables phenomenal pop for lightwind tricks and transitions and surprising manoeuvrability for its size. Pair the Trace with our Reach 13/15/17m to maximise your ride time in the lightest of winds.
Early planing and superior upwind performance
A combination of extra waterline length, a straighter, square outline, wide tips and medium rocker guarantees early planing and upwind performance in the lightest wind.
Centre V-Spine and longitudinal quad channels
Quad concave channels with V-spine in the middle provide added stiffness and help to deflect the water, thus creating less drag and less resistance across the board’s surface. The channels and V-spine also help with upwind traction and high-speed control.
Phenomenal pop for lightwind tricks and transitions
The progressive medium-low rocker is flatter in the centre then pulls up towards the tips. This rocker line is ideal for flatwater, and it creates a board with phenomenal pop that is suprisingly manouevrable and easy turning despite its size.
Pair with the 13/15/17 m Reach Kite
For quick, responsive steering and a predictable, consistent drive forward for TwinTip riding in even the lightest wind.
The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.
HYBRID CARBON CONSTRUCTION
Strategically placed layers of unidirectional carbon tape reinforce the E-glass laminate for well-balanced flex so you can ride for longer, with flow and form. This unique layup is sandwiched with a Paulownia wood core and reinforced with e-glass patches in high load areas.
