Inspired from Tomo but #nothinglikeatomo we’re proud to present our modern planing hull (MPH) board, the Stallion. This board is a pure kiteboard, with a bulletproof state of the art construction and the highest performance. You’ll be truly amazed by the fun you’ll have with the Stallion. A very easy, super fast and such a controlled ride. You’ll be astonished by the speed you take with this board. Great turning on the wave and in the bottom is one of the many incredible features of the board. When you feel like jumping you will steal the show with the Stallion thanks to its wider nose and the handy grab rail, it’s also very light built yet super strong which makes it stick better on to your feet during aerial manoeuvres.
The Stallion is the MPH concept wave trasher we’ve been working on for a long time, and it was developed with kitesurf legend Ian Alldredge. We’re so proud to bring it out now. And don’t think this baby is only the best match for choppy, small waves and messy conditions. When the waves get bigger the Stallion stays completely in her element. With the Stallion you go big in every way.
The Shape of the V2 hasn’t changed a single bit, winner winner chicken dinner..!!!
KITE + STRENGTH
This 3 stage rocker with concave is called “Modern Planing Hull” nowadays but actually has been around in the sister sport of windsurfing for decades before it found its way to the still young sport of kitesurfing. It’s all stemmed from early days of Surfing, when a lot of shaping was done with channels. What is unique in Stallion is the mix of conceptual paths the water can flow which does make it plane early, ride fast, turn tight and be completely drag free. There is a precise formula of fin placement, width and channel dispersion, which makes these boards the best kitesurfing boards on the market today.
The unique and very pronounced bottom concave and channel concept gives the Stallion the super fast drive and control in all conditions. The Stallion is specially designed for kitesurfing: thin, low volume, sharp rails, light and super strong with flex are the way to go to enjoy the most sensational kite sesh ever.
The manufacturing of the board is in Europe with Apple Tree Company, where a unique technology was developed to ensure the lightest and yet strongest board available on the market today. We further fine tuned and improved the construction by using a higher quality of glass fiber and implementing the fiber in a different matting structure, as a result the Stallion V2 is even stronger then before. The factory invested further in their self built cutting machine for an even more accurate result of the cutting process.
XPS is like EPS so it only works with epoxy resin. But it is different that it does not contain the beads that EPS has, That’s whey call it closed foam, it means it’s completely waterproof! So no worries when you ding the board. just keep kiting and fix it later. XPS is notoriously hard to laminate, but our fusion tech makes it possible! The core is fused with the skin, this gives an optimal bond between skin and core, virtually eliminating de-lamination.
Strategically placed patches provide a durable platform for your feet. These patches are made from a super high strength PET honeycomb foam that is radically different from any other honeycomb on the market today. The honeycomb is set into the deck of the board, it doesn’t just sit on top of the foam. The patches are sandwiched between fiberglass layers, together they form a very dent resistant layer and prevent the deck under your feet from denting marks.
The U-stringer consists of a high density foam insert wrapped in fiberglass. This stringer acts as a spring rod and runs only in the middle of the board, leaving the tail and nose to freely flex.
To counter the strength of the Hex Fusion on the deck and to further control the flex of the board, we designed the Ustringer. The U-stringer consists of a high density foam insert wrapped in fiberglass This stringer acts as a spring rod and runs only in the middle of the board, leaving the tail and nose to freely flex. The u-flex stringer is covered with a thin layer of unidirectional carbon fibre, to further control flex.
For the Stallion V2 we further enhanced the stringer and made it a carbon strip along the complete bottom. This ensures an even higher performance of the board and it finishes off the bottom super clean. The boards are glassed in clear epoxy so you can look directly inside the board, we have nothing to hide under layers op paint! The color on the boards come from tint in the resin itself, it’s transparent and will never fade.
For our Stallion V2 we tested more eco friendly resins and we were stoked that these proved to be even higher performant and more durable for our Stallion then the resins we used before. So we’re happy to contribute to a more ecofriendly shredders world and be part of the ECOBOARDProject. You will find the official numbered Ecoboard labels on the V2.
WHAT SIZE TO TAKE?
You cannot compare the shape of the Stallion with a traditional surfboard, we recommend to ride it between 6' and 8' shorter then a directional. If you’re hesitating between 2 sizes, here a thought; when your first objective with the Stallion is the freestyle strapless discipline go for the shorter one, if your first concern is performance in the waves, go for the longer one.
