What’s new for 2010?
Kode 74: extra vee was added under the back foot to the tip of the tail, to loosen up the board and allow it to carve a larger variety of turns. It wave rides more vertically without sacrificing speed or acceleration.
Kode 86, 94, 103: the tail outlines have been pinned out and narrowed down at the very tip. This allows these Kodes to carve a larger variety of turns, including tighter, snappier ones. Extra volume and deck dome was pumped into the rails in the tail and under the back heel, to provide a more domed shape and offer more float in the carves: more control, more grip and more forgiving turns. With the very thin rails along the rest of the board, the aggressive and fast carving nature of the Kodes remain.
Kode 112: like the three smaller sizes, extra deck dome and rail volume in the tail have been added, to give the back foot more grip and more control. With more rail volume in the tail, carving and turning becomes more forgiving, with more float to carry out of the turn, yet the aggressive and fast carving nature remains thanks to the thinner rails on the rest of the board.
Special features on the Kode 68, 74, 80:
Heel bumpers; double insert screws for the back foot.
Special features on the Kode 86, 94, 102, 112, 122:
No heel bumpers for a lighter and more direct feel; Inboard and outboard insert position options.
New fins: for waves, G10 is out, polyester is in. The test team of four riders – Scott McKercher, Cyril Moussilmani, Svein Rasmussen, Boujmaa Guilloul - were unanimous: polyester versions of the Natural Wave fin series outperformed the G10 originals, by providing a more responsive flex that allows the fin to breathe and deliver more power with more grip.
Technora™, Wood or WoodCarbon?
The Kode 68, 74, 80 and 86 are built in a new upgraded WoodCarbon construction that uses biaxial flat-weave carbon layers and a full Wood bottom with double sandwich for extra strength.
Kode 94, 103, 112 WoodCarbon uses a combination of a wood spine and ultralight 80g carbon: the composite material matrix that has set the new benchmark. This technology is the first board construction in the World to utilize an ultralight carbon fibre that is flat-weaved for total mechanical efficiency. The unidirectional flat-weave fibre generates equal tensile strength as biaxial or woven carbon fibre, yet at half the specific weight. A layer of 0.6mm Australian pine wood runs along the spine of the board to provide rigidity, additional structural integrity and to increase strength.
The Wood and Technora™ versions continue with constructions that have been refined over a decade to provide the industry’s leading warranty figures and the most reliable lightweight boards to date. The Kode 68, 74 and 80 are built to Dur-X standards: double sandwich construction, oversized reinforcements and on the Wood Dur-X models, there is a full 0.6mm wood skin (deck and bottom) for maximum rigidity, strength and dynamic shape integrity.
Fast rockerlines are the basis for speed, early planing and acceleration. A subtle tail-kick release edge provides a free-flying ride and a smooth carving nature in tight turns
Fish Scale pads for a unidirectional grip. Grips when you need it to, releases when you don’t
Narrower pin tails in the tail tip of the Kode 86, 94 and 103 for a larger variety of turning ability.
Spiraling vee concept creates more vee in the front of the board than in the tail: more front foot carving power and a more forgiving nature in rotational freestyle moves.
Drake Natural Wave polyester fins (68, 74, 80, 86 models) Drake Crossover CNC G10 fins - designed by Curtis Hesselgrave (94, 103 models) Drake Freeride Glide Carbon Prepreg fins (112, 122 models)
Double-screw fittings for the back footstrap for maximum insert shear resistance (74, 80 models). The Kode 68 also features an extra thin tail that requires the back strap to be mounted on an offset angle.
Heel Bumpers on the 68, 74 and 80 models
Harder release edge rails with a lower apex: more aggressive and a sharper rail biting sensation with more speed and acceleration Increased rail volume in the tail of the Kode 86, 94, 103, 112 provide more carving forgiveneModel Volume
