Revolutionary natural fibre honeycomb core, Polyurethane rails and carbon fibre construction.
The Zenith is our team rider Dan's brain child. It is also the first board in our lineup to officially come out of The Forge.
He's been sat in a computer model for the last 3 years, creating tuck positions and standing on chopping boards in his kitchen. It is the product of a constant and incessant need for perfection.
Featuring a 3D curved micro drop with a 100% edge to edge drop platform, it is deepest in the middle and meets the concave right out to the edges with no transitional zone. This is the money pocket. The drop transitions quickly into an aggressive rockered bowl with concave on 360* cupping your foot in all directions. At the centre of the board is a large camber. This is purely for during tuck positions, pushing the body (and thus the weight) slightly further forward, accentuating the lean forces available during tuck lean cornering. We've tested this board with a lot of riders and they've all had the 'wow' moment as they try it for the first time.
Available in Waisted and Unwaisted options.
9.7" wide at the front
9.3" wide at the back
When we wanted to create a brand new board we wanted something lighter than our regular construction but knew that just adding Carbon fibre would ruin the board. We needed something to absorb even more vibration and a far lower fundamental frequency, so we scoured the globe for materials that fit the bill. After an exhaustive search, we're proud to bring to market our own unique core system; an all natural honeycomb matrix that's lightweight, vibration rejecting and strong. We've paired this with multiple axis' of Carbon fibres to ensure incredible lateral and torsional stiffness. Also new for "The Forge" lineup is our polyurethane graphite infused rail system. We've taken our current high impact epoxy rail system and blended it with a graphite compound to increase abrasion resistance. For greater impact protection we've cast a fully encompassing urethane rail around the whole board. Available in a range of colours.
This is the Forge Signature.
