TRIO OF NEW TWIN TIPS FOR 2020
All new for 2020, the Vision, Crisis and Glide round out our twin tip line with fresh features, intelligent designs and exceptional performance for everyone from all-around freeriders to light-wind hounds.
We are also extremely proud that all of our 2020 twin tips are now made with sustainably sourced wood, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. This 100% FSC certification ensures that our wood comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. FSC’s forest management standards expand protection of water quality, prohibit harvest of rare old-growth forest, prevent loss of natural forest cover and prohibit highly hazardous chemicals such as certain sprayed pesticides. As a leader in the world of kiteboarding, we made the move to 100% FSC-certified wood as a small but significant step in doing the very best for the environment whenever we can.
For all you light-wind junkies and get-on-the-water-no-matter-what weekend warriors, we have completely redesigned the flat-rockered fan-favorite GLIDE with a new trapezoidal tip and tail. Now available in a 151cm and 161cm size, the Glide’s ingenious tip and tail shape increases the effective edge in the water for going upwind without adding bulk. Plus, when you take the Glide out for a light-wind freestyle session, you’ll quickly notice the added traction the trapezoidal tip and tail provides.
The CRISIS has been part of our twin-tip range for nearly a decade, and in 2020 it continues its legacy of delivering a predictable and dependable performance that’s perfect for progression. Beginner kiters will enjoy the Crisis’ fast and efficient flat rocker line for going upwind, while intermediate and advanced riders will love the simplistic design, single concave hull and Single Shot Fusion Sidewalls. For a durable, comfortable, take-it-to-the-next-level ride, look to the new Crisis.
The all-new VISION is exactly that: completely rebuilt and redesigned for 2020. We updated the Vision’s shape with NACA Vortex Channels, a more advanced tip and tail channeling system. Parabolic in shape, the NACA Vortex Channels compress water through their inverted channels, thereby increasing board speed. With a moderate rocker, the Vision is perfect for high-performance freeriders who are looking for a do-it-all ride. We have also updated the size offering of the Vision to a 136cm / 140cm / 144cm range, so now even more riders can enjoy the all-new Vision.
