Simply speaking it's very stable and super fast. Usually boards are either stable or fast - that's why it it is the PARADOXA..
Take in mind you paddle as fast as with a 23" but feel comfortable like on a 25" wide board.
In comparison to the Mantra 2.0 we arranged a wider tail and gave the front part in the first 50cm a more narrow outline. The magic rocker line is based on the super fast Mantra 23.2 with slight adjustments to meet the targeted paddler weight.The center bottom has a subtle concave with edges gradually running from round to really sharp in the tail. This creates more 1st stability without sacrificing wetted surface which creates drag. The rockerline features a flat center line and straight low rocker in the last 1/3rd which makes the board a wash riding giant even in the 2nd and 3rd wave and will save energy when needed. This shape handles wind waves and chop with the all new exaggerated "Vround" front bottom and you can easily overtake small waves cutting through instead of paddling above. The dugout stance is below waterline and the most radical design available in serial production. This is possible due to the function of our drainage valve system which let´s water out but not in. This stance position creates additional stability and better leverage and power to your blade.
The sidewalls are high to prevent water entry in rougher conditions and slim enough to offer huge standing options.
The sideline is heavily tapered in the back to prevent water entry while turning.
Overall flex is super stiff, way far from what you know from premium eps core carbon boards. Our new UD - AUTOCLAVE UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON PREPREG TECHNOLOGY in hollow construction has 4 layers of unidirectional carbon around the center high density foam layer. The curing process is accurate managed under pressure and heat in AUTOCLAVE technology.. Every stroke will push you forward and you will not loose energy in flex.
The carbon outer shell is that tight that you do not need a gelcoat or 2k lacquer for protection. So we decided you can choose the even more lightweight naked version or some variety in design and colors.
The new PREPREG UD technology is not only superior in speed but also the most ECO FRIENDLY way to manufacture - no eps core, no wet lamination and excess resin.
AUTOCLAVE UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON PREPREG TECHNOLOGY - eco friendly
This technology is based on premium production standards developed for aerospace and formula racing cars. 4 layers of epoxy resin impreganted unidirectional carbon fiber with a closed cell high density pvc foam in the center are layed up in the mold . There is no wet lamination necessary as the curing happens in autoclave technology using 4-5 times atmospheric pressure + heat which melts the resin and bonds all layers far more accurate compared to wet lamination process. Our new UD PREPREG technology is far more eco friendly than conventional build sup raceboards. No styrofoam core, less harmfull lamination process, no excess epoxy resin and guaranteed precision to bond each fiber leads to longevity, precise shapes and higher performance.
While paddling each stroke energy is transmitted to forward momentum .

We calculate with 6-8 weeks delivery time. In urgent needs we usually carry a choice of designs and colors on our stock for immediate delivery.
The advantage of composites is that they don´t require much maintenance; of course there are some crucial rules to extend the lifetime of your race board:
- do not put it in the sun for long periods
- do not tight it too strongly on the rack and place it upside down
- never store or transport it inside the cover if the board is not well dry
- and treat it like a baby
Raceboards should be used only by trained persons or under supervision
we offer a 2 year warranty but do not take responsibility for:
- damage caused by transport
- repairs made by unauthorized personnel
This warranty covers any fabrication defects on the board or parts, as well as changes in the material characteristics.
