Construction: Bamboo Sandwich Technology
A kiteboard sustains more constraints than a standard surfboard. It endures more pressure, mainly in the upwind stage, in the chops, and during jumps. A sandwiched construction is a must-have for our sport. Loyal to wood, already at the core of our twin-tip boards, our research led us to bamboo. The result is a light structure, super strong that absorbs those constraints.
The extremely dense cellular structure of bamboo surpasses that of oak in stability and elasticity. Bamboo is superior to wood in terms of durability and rigidity. This mighty grass is extremely solid due to high elasticity fibers lined up to the cane on the outer layer of the peel. With regards to tensile strength, bamboo matches up with tree and steel.
The use of bamboo is also environmentally responsible. It has an astonishing growth rate: the “giant bamboo” will grow 30 to 50cm per day to reach 15 to 30 meters. Every year the “mother plant” generates several shoots. In a full grown “forest” the shoots can be harvested after 5 years without reducing the size of the forest.
