The LTD construction was introduced last year. These unique boards are built with a lightweight technology that allows flex, control, and scoop rocker line accuracy. The board is constructed with a CNC EPS core of 20 kgs/m3 density, then laminated with 200 grms biaxial glass fibers, and finished with a 55 grams carbon net over a bamboo stepping deck vacuum. This is glued onto the board at a 90° angle compared to the stringer length to avoid excessive stiffness.
This construction is slightly lighter than the Classic, about 300-400 grams, but the difference is not as much in the weight of the board, but that it's stronger and has an EPS foam core. The EPS core makes the board more buoyant because the foam holds more air.
The boards in the LTD construction feel alive, not only because of their light weight but mainly due to the added floatation. Because of this, it is possible to ride a thinner board. All of our LTD’s are thinner and tuned down from the Classic and Wood technologies.
These boards were created specifically to ride strapless and are ideal for jumping. They are meant for riders who abuse the board during the landings but want a lightweight board at the same time that can be controlled at high speeds.
