CARTAN 2: Combines untwisted, unidirectional carbon fiber strands with minimal epoxy binders into a thin, flat, 30° scrim matching the exact board size. The evenly distributed, very straight fibers result in a composite laminate with a lighter, more uniform microstructure than those produced using conventional woven-fabric pre-pregs. The Imperator’s improved filament-to-filament load transfer results in an incredibly energetic Gen7 that’s 100g lighter.
REVO: A clever rocker adjuster integrated into the grab handle instantly increases or decreases the Imperator 7’s rocker by 15mm resulting in a board that can do it all. Rocket upwind when rocker is reduced. Or increase rocker when you’re in the mood to play around.
Hull: The Imperator 7 carries over its signature features that have been perfected over 20 years. The Ellipse channels energy to the fins and edges when warranted and absorbs the rest. A double concave V-shaped keel cuts through the roughest chop and delivers incredible grip and poise. Hand-finished rails feature slightly sharper, drag-reducing, tucked under rail shapes that help carve buttery smooth turns.
Light wind approved: See, feel and experience a lightwind masterpiece. See the shimmer of the proprietary carbon fiber, feel the unique hand-finished rails, and experience the power, control, and sheer pleasure the new LW edition generates in the lightest of winds.
Handmade: Only the finest material and build quality
Ultra Lightweight: Dynamic strength in an exceptionally lightweight platform. Weight saving constructions often produce undesirable effects. Not so with the Imperator 6 where its lightweight is fortified with an innovative unibody CARTAN Carbon build
Unibody: 100% Cartan® carbon fiber envelopes a heart of Paulownia to create a unibody prodigy.
Deep Vee Keel: Cuts through undesirable chop
Double Concave: The double concaves straddle the hard keel and generate additional grip especially when loading the edge. And who does not enjoy the adrenalin rush in anticipation of a perfect launch?
Tucked 3D Rails: The hand-shaped rails feature a new hard rail design that releases water better at speed thereby reducing drag. The new “round edge with a corner” improves drag yet still leverages the Coanda effect a rounded rail generates to carve buttery smooth turns
UV Foil: Two additives are used for maximum UV protection. The surface and resin have special UV blocking additives to double the protection on your investment.
3D Wood Core: hand-selected, marine-grade, Paulownia wood core
Elliptic Flex Tip: Optimized tip flex for more control
