F-One Slice Pro Carbon 2019 Kite Surfboard
The 2019 F-one Slice carbon surfboard is known for getting some pulses racing, designed as a strapless freestyle weapon for their top pro riders, it’s also an easy and intuitive board to ride in the waves! Standing out of the crowd of the compact shapes, the F-one Slice is ready to blow you away by its versatility and ease of use.
STRAPLESS FREESTYLE WEAPON
SIZES: 5'1" / 5'3"
- Early planing and excellent pop
- Control during aerial tricks
- Fantastic wave-riding abilities
The board has a straighter rocker and a parallel outline, which fades into a dynamic winger tail to increase its maneuverability. The squared off nose keeps the length to a minimum, and there are two sizes for you to choose from. The 5’3” is perfect for larger riders over 75kg who would usually ride a board around 5’8” while the smaller 5’1” is ideal for smaller riders.
The F-ONE SLICE CARBON uses the HD foam carbon construction where the use of carbon fiber allows a lighter structure and therefore a lighter board to bring your strapless riding to the next level. Mixing HD foam with 45° bi-axial carbon fiber and some deck stringers for durability, we have designed some boards that will fulfill the most demanding riders. The SLICE carbon comes with a set of F-ONE FLOW RTM fins and taking advantage of its lightweight the board truly lives to all expectations as the ultimate freestyle board.

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.
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.
