Loaded Fattail £144.99      
New for October '11, now available

A little extra girth never hurt anyone. At least that was our approach when it came time to revamp the design of the Pintail. We wanted to modernize this classic concept so it could keep up with evolutions in riding styles, techniques, and performance expectations. The Fattail was designed for pumping, carving, pedestrian slalom, freestyle and generally any situation where lively, energetic lines are on the menu. You may never reach for your downhill board for those late night parking garage sessions again.

Features

Increased concave locks your feet in against g-forces, while the topmounted and cambered platform provides energetic performance in and out of each carve. The width of the deck has been redistributed while maintaining subtle tapering near the trucks to provide both ample leverage and awareness of foot position while powering through turns. The formerly vestigial tail has received the silicone treatment for improved functionality in both freestyle tricks and surf-style shredding. The Fattail is also equipped with a slight nose kick for manuals and shuvits.

Design

Armed with more sophisticated modeling software and improved experience in conceptualization and testing methods, we were able to fine tune the Fattail's shape and contours to ensure more consistent flex characteristics throughout the entire length of the standing platform when using either wheelbase. We kept the camber of the original Pintail, increased the concave and added a nominal nose kick and a full (if chunky) kick tail.

Construction

A vertically laminated bamboo core is sandwiched between fiberglass skins. The tail is reinforced with an additional layer of fiberglass (top) and carbon fiber (bottom) for added stiffness and abrasion resistance. The bottom is finished with a bamboo veneer with a die cut water droplet pattern, which is filled with transparent urethane and a floating graphic to give a sense of dimensionality.

Carbonized Bamboo

Since 2006 we've been devoted to using primarily natural bamboo exclusively in all our boards because natural is cleaner, right? Wrong. In late December 2010 we discovered that the natural bamboo we've been using actually involves a low toxicity bleaching process. The Fattail is constructed with a carbonized bamboo core (a cleaner process overall) and marks the beginning of our transition to carbonized bamboo in general for our lineup.
