XFIT12'6", 14"

Product Description

12’6″ & 14′ XFIT: Designed by Todd Caranto

Product Description:

It replaces a full quiver for different uses and conditions, the 12’6” XFIT is made for high performance training in flatwater or ocean, but is also a competitive stock class raceboard with race proven results in the 2011 Battle of the Paddle in Honolulu Hawaii.

Stability and glide were the primary design goals for the board. Those two elements make it an unbeatable platform for distance training and core workouts. With stability and glide, a rider can concentrate on stroke and pulling from the abdominals rather than on balance and staying afloat.

Construction

Construction Details:

  • The body is a modified raceboard design and the result of more than 30 iterations in the development cycle.
  • Built using a new construction technique created by Pau Hana called Halotex construction, which is a mix of carbon fiber, bamboo and fiberglass fused together under heat and pressure to form an extremely rigid and lightweight span along the length of the board and under the standing area.
  • The Halotex panel running down the center replaces wood stringer beams and forms a backbone that is lighter and stiffer than traditional board constructions.
