FAST & STIFF
In 2020 the SportstAir line was totally renewed and will deliver even better performance. Its new shape - with a new outline developed by Werner Gnigler - has a thinner nose to allow better gliding after each stroke. The sporty, narrow outline guarantees long and effortless touring, great directional stability and fast runs.
Our Triple Layer Composite and our Double Layer constructions both include the specially developed process of pre-lamination. This high tech process consists of machine-lamination of the multiple layers into a shell that has accurate thickness as well as superior abrasion and stretch properties. Compared to normal double layer boards we have been able to remove the manual glue application from the process and with it the room for error, the excess weight of the glue and the additional health hazards for our workers.
The fiber reinforced layers create super strong and durable boards with a minimal amount of stretch.
The SportstAir comes with 1x 10″ fin, 1x Double Action Pump and 1x Superior Edition Roller Bag.
The 3D stringer is the most innovative solution to increase the stiffness of an inflatable board. It connects the deck, rail and bottom into one strong and solid U-beam. This has increased the stiffness of the boards up to 30%. Furthermore, the 3D Stringer increased the glued overlap surface in the high stress standing area, increasing the safety of the boards.
TAIL RAIL EDGE
The Tail Rail Edge enhances the performance of the boards by allowing a quick water release. This technology is featured on the SE 3DS (except AnglAir and MonstAir) and LE 3DS models.
WELDED SEAM TECHNOLOGY
JP-Australia developed the Welded Seam Technology to increase the durability and air tightness of our inflatable boards. The connection between the rail and the drop stitch material is hot air welded thus creating a very strong mechanical joint that turns these two parts into one. The plasticizers in PVC migrate over time and weaken the strength of the chemical bond of the glue. By fusing two different layers together into one part, the welding process makes the board safer and more durable.
