FABIEN ABOUT R&D
Not everyone likes it to be always completely over powered or wants to go to the PWA slalom races. Thus, the FR boards are not quite as aggressive racing machines like the Manta TED. The FR boards offer many opportunities to fine-tune it to your needs! In developing the Manta 89 FR we have incorporated all the experience we have had with the new 85. So also the big brother of the 85 got deep bevels at the tail to make the wetted area as small as possible. Nevertheless, the tail is broad enough to be comfortable even on long shots and you always can give upwind enough pressure on the fin . The 89ers specially developed for light-wind days, its lightning fast upwind and planes unbelievably early . Those looking for fast freeride boards, here they are!
The Manta FR are perfect fun boards for me. They are quick and with the further inside strap positions very easy to control and to jibe. With the 89, I’m planing even in the lightest summer breeze.
Free Riding on speed, the Manta FR Boards have all proven design features of the manta STD shapes plus a lot of comfort. This makes them the fastest and best freeride boards on the market. With the brand-new ‘89 in the range, there is also no excuse for light wind days to stay on the beach.
