Presentation of the F-One TRAX 132-133 / 136-137 twintip kite-boards for 2021
The overall rocker line is moderate to ensure the board offers early planing and keeps the fantastic glide, which is the true signature of the TRAX. The rocker line is split into three distinct stages with a flatter section in the centre, which is crucial to achieving an excellent upwind angle and great tracking on the water. The transition between the middle section and the tips was inspired by the WTF?! rocker to offer incredible pop.
- The bottom shape features a deep double concave and some tip channels. Both are quite efficient at providing first-class grip and control to the board, but the double concave is the main driver behind the overall comfort of the board and its stability at all times.
- The rails are inspired by our HRD technology, with taller sections around the feet for better lift and balance, they were kept thin everywhere else to offer plenty of grip.
- The deck shape is stripped down for more simplicity and better contact between the bindings and the board. The 3D work in the middle section, another heritage of the TRAX, helps the centre of the board track in a straight line with a solid feel for more accuracy and control when riding.
On the water, the board impresses by how smooth it is to ride. Everything feels natural and totally intuitive. A perfect blend of glide, solid pop and smooth landings characterise this well-balanced shape.
The TRAX is available in two sizes, which should fit a wide range of users. The proportions of the shape are inspired by the latest freestyle developments while the dimensions are kept more manageable.
The TRAX takes all the shape features of the standard TRAX and implements them in a format dedicated and tailored for the smaller sizes. Smaller and thinner, this version of the TRAX comes in 132x37cm and 133x38cm.
Produced from a specific mould, this particular TRAX is lighter and more flexible.
All versions come equipped with our UNIBox 50m fins, which offer better speed and improved glide thanks to their thinner profile.

|V DOUBLE CONCAVE |
The V double concave bottom shapes combines a general V with two concave channels on each side of the center line.
|The V provides maneuverability while the concaves channel the water along the board. The result is a lively board providing a comfortable ride with easy landings|
|WOOD CORE||The wood forms the heart of your board and gives it most of its mechanical properties: strength, flex and resilience (ability to return to its original shape).
Each year, in order to master these properties, F-one seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.
|LIFTED TIP CHANNELS||These channels help provide superior grip towards the tip of the board and are designed to be super-efficient during the pop.
To form the channels, the tip of the board is raised in its central part, therefore creating added lift locally to the rocker of the board for better pop and easier landings.
|3D DECK STRUCTURE|
Board flex is tuned through both materials and shape.
|The shape of the deck is especially engineered to make the board ultra responsive between your legs for maximum drive and precision with the flex increasing progressively towards the tips for maximum pop and comfort.|
|UNIBOX||The patented UNIBOX system and RESPONSE fins have a radical effect : the asymmetrical profile improves the general ride and early planing.
However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings.
