  F2 SX Slalom 2007

Nearly every brand has a slalom board within their range these days. But in order to sell, they must appeal to the weekend blaster not just the specialist slalom competitor. So unlike in the late 1990′s, the new generation of slalom boards are forgiving and allow a real world sailor (as we are all now called) to get up to top speed relatively easily – the F2 SX is no exception. It also helps that Finian Maynard, Pete Volwater, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, and Karin Jaggi do rather well on this production slalom board at the World Cup events. (Nothing to do with their talent – it’s all about the board!!)

The 2007 range has an extra small board (81 litres) which was released in April of this year but now the full range is available.

NEW FEATURES

Scoop-Rocker-Line

No change from 2006.

Nose

Slightly lifted compared to last year’s model.

Tail

Narrower tail for less back leg pressure & easier gybing.

Bottom

Parallel double concaves with stabilizing side flats that run into a flat V.

Deck Shape

NEW Double Convex Deck Shape providing more stiffness with lower mast foot position. This lowers the centre of gravity of the rig.

Cut Outs

NEW design releases turbulence because of the rounded channels running alongside the cut-out walls. This means less spin out and better over chop.

 

COST: £1099 for all sizes
AVAILABILITY: mid-Sept 06
