F-One Slice Flex 2019 Kite Surfboard
The 2019 F-one Slice Flex surfboard has been designed as a strapless freestyle weapon, it’s also an easy and intuitive board to ride in the waves! Best suited to small and medium sized waves and excels when the conditions are onshore, and the waves aren’t too powerful.
STRAPLESS FREESTYLE WEAPON
SIZES: 5'1" / 5'3"
- Early planing and excellent pop
- Control during aerial tricks
- Fantastic wave-riding abilities
For strapless freestyle riding, the compact dimensions make it very easy to maneuver the board in the air and swing weight is reduced. Even performing simple jumps is made easier, with a wide stance pop comes easy and the light nature of the board will help you improve incredibly quickly. The F-one Flex will switch your level to “fast forward” mode!
The F-One Slice Flex uses the HD foam flex construction where the ability of the board to flex has been emphasized to provide an outstanding comfort and an amazing feeling in the waves. Built with HD foam of various densities together with fiberglass and epoxy resin, this construction also features some deck stringers for more durability. The comfort while riding is further enhanced by the shock absorbers and the full pad. The SLICE FLEX has some deck inserts built-in so they can be equipped with foot straps. They come with a set of F-ONE FLOW RTM fins.

HD FOAM CARBON COMPOSITE
This sandwich construction (high density foam + fiberglass + carbon) provides the boards with a strong resistance and a lighter weight.
The carbon fibers are laid +45° and -45° onto the board therefore avoiding any fibers at 0° to preserve the flex of the board whilst achieving higher mechanical performances. This construction improves the weight/resistance ratio of Carbon Series models which clearly feature among the lightest and best performing boards on the market.
HEEL SHOCK ABSORBER
The deck has been recessed by 5 mm on a wide area underneath the front foot in order to add an EVA shock absorbing foam layer.
This foam layer absorbs effectively all impacts for the riders and makes the board even more durable.
As the strapless discipline develops and grows, so does the demands it puts on the boards.
With higher jumps and tougher landings, the stresses applied to the boards have migrated towards the rails and we have reinforced some of our constructions with lateral deck stringers to make the boards more robust in these areas. These stringers are not full depth to keep the flex and feel of the board.
RTM technology stands for RESIN TRANSFER MOLDING.
This process uses a closed mold to produce accurate composite parts.
The resin is injected in the mold after it is closed, with the dry fiber having been placed inside beforehand. The closed mold injection allows for great shape accuracy and the epoxy resin used make the fins stronger and more responsive providing a sharper feel on the water.
