Case Study - Kiteboards perform better with TeXtreme® reinforcement

This is what Jürgen May, Product Engineering BOARDS & MORE GmbH (FANATIC/ION/NORTH), says about TeXtreme® in their surf boards.

"We have used TeXtreme® for both the North and Fanatic brands, and both the Select and the FreeWave TeXtreme boards developed is truly premium boards. TeXtreme® gives the expected weight savings and mechanical performance improvements, and we have used an unbalanced fabric which also gives an extra advantage and differentiation to the product. TeXtreme® has helped us reduce weight on our boards and at the same time give us great results on stiffness, breakage force and flexibility, which contributes to our main goal, to make the best boards”
