F-One Platinum 3 Pads/Straps/Fins/Handle 2017
F-One Platinum 3 Pads/Straps/Fins/Handle 2017 - Probably the most comfortable combo strap / pad on the market.
The pads are in general difficult to design because they must fit all types of feet. They must ensure the best connection with your board to have the best feel possible while riding, and absorb the impacts. With the straps, the pads must lock your feet in the ideal position.
To obtain the highest quality pads, we have chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities. A unique process that allow to generate all possible forms while picking the best EVA foam density. Because a pad, it's those two essential things: a form and a foam. The F-ONE strap is fully adjustable to the size and shape of the foot and brings great comfort with a multilayer of different EVA density and its neoprene coating combined with a base in plastic injected.
UNIBOX Twin tip fins
F-one’s patented UNIBOX system removes all constraints of the traditional fin profile design.
The fin base goes through the board and is secured on top by a thin box. The main innovation of this system is that the box does not need to be integrated into the board; rather the board is sandwiched between the fin RESPONSE and its box. As a result, our 3mm board thickness and its flex are left untouched.
With the UNIBOX system and its asymmetric profile, you gain in gliding efficiency and can start planning earlier. It improves the ride comfort as well thanks to the fins flex.
The RESPONSE fins are color coded on their base (red and green) to facilitate their assembly and respect the asymmetrical aspect. The matching color is also present inside the fin holes on the board. As a result, mounting the fins is really easy: red on red, green on green. The box part on top of the board can be mounted in either direction.
A notch has been added on the box so you can mount a leash board if you need to.
New ergonomic handle with pre-fitted screws and washers for an easy setup and to avoid loosing them.
