Tech specs

VOLCANIC BASALT
Basalt is a volcanic mineral fiber which offers vibration resistance and durability while maintaining a high strength to weight ratio. Washed pure molten basalt rock is absent of toxic additives. The combination of wood core with basalt laminate provides a flex characteristic, unique to Cabrinha.

PAULOWNIA WOOD CORE
We use a premium “A-grade” Paulownia wood core which is vertically laminated to optimize strength, reduce weight and allow the board to flex more naturally and freely. This premium cut has a higher number of continuous vertical strips free of finger joints for a smooth flex pattern. This allows each board to mirror the design for more consistency from board to board. Found in all 2017 models.

PARABOLIC RAILS
One of the most efficient ways to control tip, tail, and torsional flex is through the use of core profiling. With our Parabolic Rails we are able to precisely control the stiffness of our boards by using a raised and tapered rail shape. Having the thickness along the rail helps with torsional stiffness and enhances flex control while keeping the board weight to a minimum. This design approach provides the boards with a substantial increase in re-bound. Found on the Ace & Tronic. Freeride boards benefit the most from the technology.

ULTRABOND PU RAILS
A single pour liquid urethane elastomer around the entire board is the ultimate impact resistance material while helping with rebound and vibration reduction.

M6 X 16MM INSERTS
The same 16mm screws are used for fins, handle and foot straps.

HEX FLOW FINS
Our unique hex flow polycarbonate fins feature a hexagon dimpled pattern over the surface of the fin. The hex pattern helps to create a boundary layer which assists in the laminar flow over the fin, reducing drag. The new material is made from a lightweight and resilient bullet proof material.

FAST ROCKER
Provides razor sharp responsiveness and stability for landings. designed to get you up and riding quickly and upwind fast. Found on the Xcaliber, Ace, and Spectrum.

DOUBLE CONCAVE
Concave helps provide more lift for a given width of board and tends to flatten the rocker on the centerline – both features aid light wind planing. It also allows the board to sit flatter on the water for an edge angle that makes the board more comfortable to ride.
