2012 CrazyFly Shox Custom Kiteboard
Shox Custom is an ultimate upwind machine for freeride with soft to medium flex for comfortable rides. This year, it features a brand new Double U Concave Bottom shape with Custom Wood Construction. The performance of Shox Custom has once again reached a new level.
The new Double U Concave Bottom shape increases the overall all-round abilities of Shox Custom. With this shape, Shox Custom became the ultimate chop eater and the upwind ability of this board is just amazing. Together with the upgrade in performance, we have changed the look of this board. Only Shox Custom features a custom hand pickled paint job spread directly on the wood core. This paint job is one of a kind in the industry. Brand new Razor fins with ultra thin profile enhance the speed and early planning.
Unlimited number of different construction layups allows us to tune flex, stiffness and pop to the desired levels and Shox Custom offers a very good balance between these elements. We increased the flex of Shox Custom to make it very comfortable for smooth freeride and gave more than enough pop for pulling off tricks.
Shox Custom is designed for intermediate and advanced riders looking for a very comfortable freeride board. This year, it featues a brand new Double U Concave Bottom shape, Custom Wood Construction and a unique hand pickled paint job. Shox Custom comes complete with Dura pads, Quick Fix II footstraps, handle and new Razor fins.
Freeride: Shox Custom board is designed for freeride and oldschool tricks
Medium Flex: Provides enough comfort and extra bits of performance
Great Pop: You can still squeeze great amounts of pop from this board, even though it is not the pop machine
Progressive Flex Technology: Flex on the board increases from the center towards the tips, This technology provides natural flex of the whole board and balanced pop
Double U Concave Bottom: Double concave shape provides amazing control, eats up chop and the board gains better upwind performance. This shape offers stability in difficult landings and generates more power when loading a jump
Multiaxial Fiber Glass: Due to multiaxial fibers the board has more flex in torsion and still remains very strong, as the fibers reinforce it in multiple directions
3D ABS Rails: ABS is a high strength, very durable thermo-plastic material. These rails are CNC shaped and hand fine finished to give them a nice round shape. At the end ABS rails are polished by hand
CNC Shaped Wood Core: Core is one of the most essential elements in every kiteboard, therefore we choose only finest selection wood cores for all CrazyFly kiteboards. To have precisely shaped cores of highest quality we are using a CNC machine to cut the outline and drill holes of all cores
Custom Wood Construction: This year Shox has a brand new custom wood core construction and only specially selected pieces of wood can be used for Shox cores
Ultimate Diamond Grip: The diamond grip concept is based on a combination of the main diamond shaped channels for water outflow and the micropores which direct water into the main channels. This technology ensures perfect water outflow from the pad to provide more grip
Dura Pads: Extremely durable pads produced form highest quality EVA material. Layers of EVA create softest cushion under heel. There are no dents under heels even after years of riding
Razor fins: These fins are Razor sharp. We have designed them with very thin profile to cut easily through water, prevent drag and make the boards faster. Razor fins also provide flex to some extend, which allows for comfortable carving and transitions. Lots of R&D has been put into invention of this incredible material. Razor fins are made from DuPont® high quality polymer filled with fiber glass fibers. This material is also used in aerospace technologies and provides extreme durability, light weight and superior strength. Razor fins are supplied with all 2012 kiteboards
Quick Fix II: With Quick Fix II you can mount the straps faster and easier than ever before. Straps can be adjusted to the right size in seconds
