Starboard isonic Carbon 2016
Das ideale Board für den Defi Wind!
Fast racing machines designed for the highest top speeds, the
highest average speeds, and the quickest accelerations
with powerful overtaking abilities throughout a wide wind range.
''The one with the top scores in the widest range of conditions. The

Special Test 2015
As tradition demands, Starboard's 2016 iSonics have been
upgraded across the range with all-new shapes, with
Starboard's largest test and development program verifying
performance in the different conditions of Vietnam, Maui, Thailand,
New Caledonia and Marseille.
The new shape evolutions aim to transfer mechanically more power
from the sailor to the board in the light-medium wind models, gain
efficiency with new rail shapes and new wetted-surface area designs
on key models.
134, 124, 114: 7mm higher rails 0 to 120cm. New deck shape
for the back foot to get more toe-pressure: earlier planing, more
acceleration and higher top end speed from increased leverage.
Increased leverage transfers more power from sailor to board, with
a higher ride on the water.
134, 124, 114, 107, 97, 90, 87: sharper rails at the critical
45cm area of the rail. Increased sharpness improves water release
for more efficiency - faster top end speeds, a greater ability to
plane through lulls and bite upwind with more power reserve for
improved overtaking advantage.
124, 114, 107, 97: new deck shape in the jibe area for more
jibing comfort, more toe-pressure and a faster exit from the jibe
124: new outline is shorter by 2cm and the length of the
rockerline's tail flat is increased by 5cm. 1.5cm wider outline and
keeping the narrow tail end: the model with the most performance
progression board over 2015.
114: 1.5cm wider outline and keeping the narrow tail end: second
best progression and exact same feeling on the water as the new
87, 90: the high wind models
97, 107: the medium wind models
114, 124, 134: the light wind models
The 80 has been merged with the iSonic Speed models as a board ideal for GPS Speed and high-wind slalom in one.
