The POLAR Light Wind Edition is the big brother of our Freestyle/Freeride deck. The goal of this board is to design a light wind board which still has all the freestyle abilities despite its bigger size! It comes in 146 x 43.5 and offers very early planning!
We have slightly modified the rocker line to support the incredible light wind abilities of this board. When riding, the CONTINUOUS ROCKER flattens out - to enhance earliest planning. At the same time we kept the DOUBLE CONCAVE and COMPLEX CHANNEL CONSTRUCTION to offer maximum grip for a perfect pop.
The forgiving outline of this board enhances a very smooth and light handling - even in choppy waters on our local beaches at the North and Baltic Sea. The softer FLEX and the AIR DAMPENING PADS allow super soft landings! At the same time the ANTI NEGATIVE FLEX Stringer made from FLAX FIBRE prevents tip diving on heavier landings!
Our aim is to design the highest performing boards and at the same time reduce our impact on the planet. We believe that many of Mother Nature ́s materials such as FLAX and organic resins actually enhance the performance of our products. In addition we offset all our CO2 emissions during the production by ARKTIK.
The FLAX FIBRE used in the board is a sustainable and cellulose based composite which is highly efficient at the same time. Not only does it reduce the carbon footprint of the board but also adds special mechanic properties compared to carbon or glass fibre. During our R&D work we designed different stringers to support our the flex patterns for high impacts!
The POLAR is based on a CNC precision milled Paulownia WOOD CORE. This is the lightest and healthiest option and further enhances the flex patterns build into the board. To minimise the weight of the board we also milled a 3D top construction!
The DOUBLE CONCAVE offers maximum support during take off and landings! Furthermore it is designed to support the channel construction and provide extra grip when launching into flat spins off a kicker wave - and enhances early planning!
The RATCHET BINDING is the easiest system to adjust while riding. The ratchet allows you to tighten or loosen the strap within seconds! To maximise the comfort we equipped the inside and edges of the strap with MEMORY FOAM.
Air Dampening Pads
The AIR DAMPENING system integrated into our pads is designed to absorb any shock while landing! The air cushion sits underneath and around the heel to offer maximum comfort - no matter if you are landing megaloops or simply ride in choppy waters. To further enhance a perfect stance we equipped the pads with a grippy 3D surface. The TOE RIDGE presses your toes towards the MEMORY FOAM of the binding. We could go on about all the different stance options - but just step in and try yourself!
Anti negative Flex Stringer
The stringer made out of FLAX FIBRE runs from tip to tip across the whole deck and minimises the negative flex of the board. Thus the stringer prevents tip dives when landing with lots of speed or riding with bindings! Actually this is why the POLAR can be so flexible and at the same time offer the performance for extreme landings!
The 3D channel and top construction of the board does not only minimise the weight but also provides extremely precise flex. The board is designed to offer super soft landings and maximum comfort at maximum speed!
We added quite a bit of extra CONTINUOUS ROCKER than the usual freeride board offers. This is ideal for soft landings and precise take off in all conditions. Furthermore it adds manoeuvrability and smoothens the ride during choppy conditions!
The GRIP CHANNELS integrated into the DOUBLE CONCAVE and the tips allow you to control the edge at any time - even when launching completely overpowered into you next WOO record! The extra grip enhances upwind abilities and allow you to ride smaller fins to ease fast landings.
