T1 is introducing a new technology in the board building industry. The “BambO2/CarbonX”.
His new Version 4,0 T1 incorporates Bamboo veneers in all T1 boards. This new technology not only results in longer lasting boards but also Greener.
“T1’s ‘CarboX’ construction uses strategically oriented carbon layers, mirrored inside and outside the PVC sandwich skin, paired with T-stringers in deck and bottom to tune and control torsion and flex in its boards depending on their range of use. RevoXskin is a UV-resistant and 100 % waterproof finishing film eliminating the use of any fillers and primers.
By integrating full BambO_ decks and bottoms in its ‘Version 4.0’ range, T1 is able to further boost the resilience of its windsurf boards and enhance stiffness and toughness at the same time: Customers will be rewarded with longer lasting products that will keep their crisp and snappy “new board feeling” for many years. The bamboo fiber excels with an immense tensile strength rivaling many metal alloys but also features a strength-to-weight ratio better than graphite (carbon). This makes the bamboo fiber one of the most resilient natural materials
known to man.”
The contributions to a “Greener” environment thanks to the use of the Bamboo construction are many: Bamboo grows faster than any tree, and can be cut and is capable of regenerating without the need to replant. Also, bamboo is an extremely efficient “air cleaner”, as no other wood material takes up as much Carbon Dioxide.
All the new Version 4,0 boards feature a Full BamboO2 deck and bottom and upgraded “CarboX” construction: CarboX50 for all T1 MauiWaveX, CarboX75 for all T1 CrossX crossover boards, CarboX100 for all T1 FastX free-slalom boards, and CaboX full carbon for T1 SR speed and RS slalom and race boards.
