Presentation of the F-One twintip WTF!? 2022 kite-board
Built around a wood core with glass reinforcement and carbon tapes for a better load transmission when loading up for the pop. This construction not only makes the WTF?! incredibly durable, it is also the secret to the smooth and controlled feel underfoot.
The WTF?! board features a specific rocker line with a flatter section in the center of the board to allow for early planing with increased rocker on the tips to keep those landings smooth and easy. The transition between the three stages of the rocker is key to the dynamics of edging and loading for the pop and reaching maximum amplitude.
Every feature of the WTF?! has been built around not only giving the rider the most pop possible, but also making it easy to release it and control. The outline of the board is both versatile and comfortable, the board tips provide a huge platform for you to launch your tricks from, while also offering a stable landing area, no matter how hard you are coming in from a move.
Inspired from our HRD rail design, the WTF uses thicker rails under the feet, offering maximum lift and balance while in the middle of the board. At the tips, the profile of the rail gets thinner for improved grip.
The bottom of the board features a lot of shape details including a central V-double concave, step channels in the sides and tip channels. These are featured to improve the grip and the release of water from the board. Helping you with speed and control at all times while you are on the water. These channels also break the surface tension of the water, making the landings smoother and more manageable, even at high speed.
The deck of the board is totally flat to provide a more consistent connection to the board for your bindings, no matter what brand you choose. This helps with control and also makes it easy to get bindings that fit the board.
Once you are on the water, you will notice the speed at which the board travels and how effortless it is to ride. Pop is gained easily and no matter your speed, or the state of the water, you can be assured of a good take off every time you load up the edge. Landings are smooth, and the WTF has been designed to help you to complete your tricks with higher consistency than ever before.
The board is available in five sizes: 140 x 42.5cm, 138 x 42cm, 136 x 41.5cm in the Slim construction, and the grom dedicated sizes 130 x 38 and 127 x 37.
They are all quite large on purpose, the increased surface area helping to get you going early, but also providing a great platform to land your tricks.
The board is equipped with our Unibox fins in 35 or 55mm, these offer better speed and improved glide with less drag thanks to their thinner profile.
|DOUBLE CONCAVE STEP DESIGN|
Double concave sections are designed to direct as much as possible the water flow so that when riding the concaves provide clearly superior grip.
During landings, the water is directed out making the touch-down smoother and more stable, avoiding unwanted bouncing and sliding effects. The side step emphasize the double concave effects and further add to the grip for better edging.
|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.
Reduces the core volume and weight and adds extra flexibility towards the tip of the board.
Combined with the other deck features, this makes the board stiff in the middle sections but with a nice flex towards the tips, making the drive very precise with a smooth riding feeling and extra pop for the jumps
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, we seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.
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.
