The HORIZON is designed to master high performance Freestyle and Wakestyle riding. Making it the most advanced board in our range and the weapon of choice of 3x European Champion and KOLD shapes founder Mario Rodwald. However the board still offers a good amount of comfort and flex. For heavier riders this might even be your first step from a freeride board into the freestyle direction as a heavier pilot always wants a stiffer deck.
The slightly harder flex, less torsion and the straighter outline offer immense pop. This allows you to hold the rail for the most precise take off and will give you the extra slack to learn your next unhooked move and improve your big air game. We have added a few millimetres to the CONTINUOUS ROCKER to provide perfect control on your landings.
The ANTI NEGATIVE FLEX STRINGER on top of the board prevents tip diving - a very important feature on this wake style deck. The well-defined ABSORPTION FLEX further enhances the soft landings.
The board comes with a DOUBLE CONCAVE and complex CHANNEL CONSTRUCTION - all supporting the extremely precise feeling of the HORIZON. Just like all our boards the HORIZON arrives without plastic wrapping and is manufactured here in Europe.
The CO2 emissions of the production process are compensated for and we use more sustainable components such as FLAX FIBRE. This board goes along perfect with boots or straps.
The complete board comes with our revolutionary VELCRO ll Binding or the Ratchet Binding including the TOE RIDGE, MEMORY FOAM and AIR DAMPENING PAD. For extra grip or if uncertain choose the standard FREESTYLE 4.5 fins and for a looser feeling we recommend the WAKE 3.0 fins.
Feel free to ask us or your local dealer for a test ride and enjoy the HORIZON!
Our aim is to design the highest performing boards and reduce the impact on our planet at the same time. We believe that many of Mother Nature ́s materials such as FLAX and organic resins actually enhance the performance of our products. In addition all the CO2 emissions that occur during the production of our boards are off set.
The FLAX FIBRE used in the board is a sustainable and cellulose based composite, which is highly efficient at the same time. Not only does it reduce the carbon footprint of the board but also adds special mechanic properties compared to carbon or glass fibre. During our R&D work we designed different stringers to support the flex patterns for high impacts!
The POLAR ll is based on a CNC precision milled Paulownia WOOD CORE. This is the lightest and healthiest option and furthermore it enhances the flex patterns build into the board. To minimise the weight and improve the responsiveness of the board we milled a 3D top construction.
The new DOUBLE CONCAVE offers even more grip during turns, take-offs and landings! Furthermore it provides extra grip when launching into flat spins of a kicker wave - and enhances early planning!
ANTI NEGATIVE FLEX STRINGER
The stringer made out of FLAX FIBRE runs from tip to tip across the whole deck and minimises the negative flex of the board. Thus the stringer prevents tip dives when landing with lots of speed. Actually this is why the POLAR ll can provide so much flex and still offer perfect landings for your freestyle game!
The new GRIP CHANNELS integrated into the DOUBLE CONCAVE and the tips allow you to fully control the edge at any time - even when launching completely overpowered into you next WOO record! The extra grip enhances upwind abilities and allows you to ride smaller fins to ease fast landings.
The 3D channels and top construction of the board minimise the weight but also provide extremely precise flex. Combined with the FLAX FIBRE it offers super soft landings and maximum comfort at maximum speed!
We added a slightly more CONTINUOUS ROCKER than the usual freeride board would offer. This is what makes the POLAR so perfect for soft landings and precise take off in all conditions. Furthermore it adds manoeuvrability and smoothens the ride in choppy conditions!
The RATCHET BINDING is the easiest system to adjust while riding. The ratchet allows you to tighten or loosen the strap within seconds! To maximise the comfort we equipped the inside and edges of the strap with MEMORY FOAM.
The AIR DAMPENING system integrated into our pads is designed to absorb any shock while landing! The air cushion sits underneath and around the heel to offer maximum comfort - no matter if you are landing megaloops or simply ride in choppy waters. To further enhance a perfect stance we equipped the pads with a grippy 3D surface. The TOE RIDGE presses your toes towards the MEMORY FOAM of the binding. We could go on about all the different stance options - but just step in and try it for yourself!
