Light-wind / Efficiency / Progression
Built for light-wind riding and progression, the Glide V12's trapezoidal tip and tail increase the effective edge of the board in the water without increasing the overall size and cumbersome nature of a longer board. The Glide continues to progress and increase the upwind ability for beginners and light-wind warriors a like.
WHY WE MADE IT
We built the Glide V12 to redefine the limits on light-wind riding and make learning how to kiteboard as easy and fun as possible.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
- The Glide V12 will be the first twin tip to get upwind on a light-wind day.
- One of the most proven light-wind twin tip shapes of all time.
- Easy to hold power in case the wind picks up, making it one of the most versatile "big boards" on the market.
TRAPEZOIDAL TIP AND TAIL
The shape extends your effective board area in the water and also acts as a rudder or an additional center fin. The extended length gives you more range and this shape also provides more tracking for upwind performance.
This .2mm base material has the ideal strength-to-weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible, and super strong, our inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. This process reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength, and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Sustainably grown Paulownia wood gives boards a lively and springy character. The vertically laminated construction optimizes the collective strength of the wood and provides strength, durability, and consistent flex.
SINGLESHOT FUSION SIDEWALL
High durometer urethane and our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board's core in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
