Inflatable Racing - FUSION STRINGER -online exclusive

 

The Maliko X25 and X27 inflatables combine our superior race performance shaping with the added convenience of easy storage and transport that an inflatable provides.

Available in 25” and 27” widths, they are the perfect choice for any 14’ class inflatable race looking to win, or an excellent way to add a race board to your collection for racing and/or training.

Maliko inflatables are designed with no compromise—they are made to win races. Their design is inspired from our multiple world title-winning Maliko hard boards. Their nose slices through water and drag is extremely reduced to assure they go as fast as possible.

The key element in this board is stiffness - longitudinal and torsional stiffness necessary for optimal efficiency on a 14’ board race board. The new construction allows for a high inflation pressure of up to 21 PSI. This, along with the double carbon stringer (along top & bottom) make the Maliko inflatables the stiffest yet. Furthermore, the construction eliminates the need for added parts or strings, distributing stiffness along the entire board.

These four carbon stringers run directly underneath the stance area to minimize any excessive bending or unnecessary rocker caused by rider weight. The result is reduced water resistance and superior speed.

Hydroslick edges on the tail rail reduce wasted energy creating a clean water release from the tail of the board and maximising glide and efficiency of each stroke. Extra handles in the front of the board let you grab the board faster in and out of the water helping you gain those few crucial seconds to cross the finish line ahead of the competition. Malikos are equipped with US fin boxes and come with a race fin, butterfly screw and Phillips head screw (for lower drag) to give you unlimited options to customize your fin design depending on conditions.

CONSTRUCTION: 

Standard Stiffness Rating - Naish test the stiffness of their boards against the rest in the industry; Naish's boards have consistently scored higher against other top SUP brands. 

This test involves placing 132 lbs in the centre of the board while sitting on two stands 9 feet apart. The amount of flex along the board is comapred tot he amount of weight to give us the stiffness score. 

Why is stiffness so important? 

Stiffer is Better. A stiffer board moves more efficiently through the water when you paddle as more of the energy you use propels the board forward, rather than being absorbed by the board, resulting in an easier and more stable SUP session for you. FUSION material therefore is used to achieve the stiffest top and bottom skin possible in compression and extension of the board. The gap between composite and inflatable SUP boards is then brought closer than ever before.  

  • Fusion Dropstitch = Stiff + durable + light. A layer of solid polymer is fused to the dropstitch material as it is being made. This allows for a stiffer, more durable material that saves around 2kg of weight per board, helping ensure they are as rigid for the paddler as possible. 

  • Double Carbon Stringer = Stringers are added to the tops and bottoms of board to improve stiffness and help control the twist of the board; enabled by reducing the elongation and compression of both skins of the board. A single stringer is featured in the double layer to increase overall performance; enhancing the board's overall stiffness and control of twist. Structural reinforcement is added under the stance area of the slim line board to reduce buckling and water resistance from bumps formed along the board bottom under weight/pressure. 

  • Double Layer Rails = Great durability + longevity + added stiffness

  • Hydroslick Edges = Creates clean water release in the tail for improved efficiency

  • Double Density Pad = Easy positioning on the board + great grip + soft on your body

  • Added Deck Handles = For efficient race starts & finishes

 

 INCLUDED: race slide-in fin (tool less), inflatable bag, board, dual flow pump, repair kit
