When you want the best of both worlds, Speed and Freeride, look no further than the SPEEDSTER! The development of these boards comes right from the Manta range for speed and the Rocket range for manueverabilIty.You get it all in one great range of boards! A plethora of footstrap locations allow you to custom set up the board for your particular style and water condition. A perfect package for the fast free rider!
Ultra-fast and easy to handle make the Speedster shapes the perfect compromise to going fast and in control. If you are not racing in slalom events these boards are set up to have fast GPS times and give you an easy and controllable board. We have put together new outlines, new rocker lines all coming from what we have learned on the Manta boards. Combine all that with the state of the art T- Lab Fins and you have a perfect winning combination for the perfect freeride board, all in one package.
We developed 2 new sizes for this range while the other sizes remain the same as last season’s sensational Manta FR.
NEW Speedster 69 and 75
The Speedster is the line that will replace our Manta FR. We started this year with some dedicated development on the 69 and 75 sizes.
The new speedster 69 and 75 shapes come from the 2012 Manta 71.
On these boards we have a new outline, new rocker, new bottom shape and new foil section.
The outline is very similar to the Manta 71 2012; it stays wide very far back and then suddenly gets narrow with this special pintail tail. This give a lot of acceleration in the front part and good top speed when fully on the tail. On the Speedster the tail is even narrower to get easier top speed as you need less acceleration on these boards than the Manta’s.
The rocker is the same as the Manta 71 and the V is different to get easier access to top end speed with more control.
These boards have a new foil compared to manta 71 with a lower mast track for better and more direct control.
The Speedster makes me smile! I can blast down the reach and pass my friends and jibe like a hero! I find these boards to be the ultimate free ride fun machine
Freeriding on Steroids! The Speedsters have proven design features of the racing Manta shapes but with added ease and comfort. No more excuses not to blast past your friends and smoke them around the turns!
