Starboard CarveIQ Carbon L.C.F. 2018
The CarveIQs are pure freeride boards that merge the AtomIQs and the Carve into one.
The three smaller sizes are slim, thin and compact, replacing the AtomIQs. More aggressive, maneuverable boards with an exciting, connected feel and a very fast ride. Compared to the AtomIQs, they're shorter, with a wider tail and a new bottom shape.
The three larger sizes are longer and more stable, designed with plug-and-play philosophy. Maximum performance with minimum fuss. They replace the Carves. Compared to the Carves, they're also shorter, with a new bottom shape but the same long, flat rocker profiles to get going easily.
Available in our new Carbon L.C.F. technology, as well as Flax Balsa and 3DX.
The CarveIQ 104, 114 and 124 are extra-short for more control in high winds, making them more reactive and maneuverable.
The tails are wider than last year, making them more stable at speed with power to go upwind; a wider wind range overall.
The three larger sizes (131, 141 and 151) are designed for easy planing. They are longer, with smooth profiles that glide onto the plane effortlessly.
For 2018, the squash nose aims to reduce dead weight at the tip of the nose without affecting the ease of getting planing. As a result, the boards have more high wind control and feel more reactive.
