Fanatic Falcon Slalom 2007
Fanatic release their complete slalom range as well as F2 this month. Again, the focus is on ease of use and accessibility for us real world sailors, but without compromising the potential top speed of the board (in the right hands)!
No fin provided but recommended 26-30cm. Tuttle box.
Within the range, the 90 litre board has been vastly improved in terms of control and gybing.
The 110 litre is slightly narrower and easier to control than the ’06 111 litre board.
The 125 litre is narrower & smaller than the previous 131 litre equivalent.
Finally the NEW 145 litre board is Fanatic’s biggest slalom board ever designed (in terms of volume). The idea is that it works in conditions once only suited to Formula kit.
Fanatic Team rider Dan Ellis: Just looking at the boards, you will see that the outline & rail shape has changed and the rocker has also been tweaked. I found the boards easier to gybe and faster overall. They also feel a little more free and they ride off the fin a bit more.
COST: Slalom 80 – £1035, the rest are £1095
