The iSonics are Starboard’s slalom boards.
They are 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.
In a nutshell, for 2014, the 80/87/90/97/107 iSonics are fully upgraded with shorter, wider and slimmer shapes and new cutaway/side cut designs that make for a wider wind range than before, more control, better acceleration and higher top speed
The 110, 117, 130 are more evolutionary with new cut-away/side cut designs that boost top end speed and acceleration. T
hey are a little bit thinner only and the 110 was lengthened to match the balance of the range
The iSonics are the only slalom range in the Starboard range.
They are the boards that have the quickest acceleration, the highest average speed and the second-highest top speed in our board range (the iSonic Speed Specials are ultimately the boards that achieve the highest top speeds).
“SHORTER, WIDER, SLIMMER”
The iSonic incorporates every ounce of Starboard R&D technology, every gram of our team’s design experience, and is driven by the most successful racing team in windsurfing.
Wide, compact outlines form the basis for each iSonic design.
The nose of each board is relatively wide, allowing for a shorter nose and a lower rocker to be used.
This shorter and lower nose reduces swing weight, reduces aerodynamic drag and improves the board’s ability to skim over chop without losing speed.
The tail of the board, just under your back foot is also relatively wide.
This increases the board’s power, its overtaking potential, its jibing power, its wind range and the leverage the rider can apply over the board to keep it under control or add extra acceleration.
