PARABOLIC FLEX SYSTEM 3RD GENERATION – PARALLEL FLEX SYSTEM – QUAD CONCAVE
Parallel Flex System
Unlike previous Parabolic or curved version of our patented technology, the PFS3 high density aerospace foam beams run in a straight orientation from tail to nose. This gives the board more longitudinal flex right out of the box, without sacrificing the exceptional strength the PFS boards have become renown for.
The QuadConcave can be broken down into two parts:
1. Central Double Concave – Tracks laminar (water) flow through the centre of the board keeping you higher on the wave face, which allows you to generate more speed into your bottom turns.
2. Outer Venturi Channels – Draws the laminar flow from a wider entry point into a narrow exit through the tail. Based on Bernoulli’s principle, the laminar flow increases in speed as it progresses through the channel, giving you more drive.
PARABOLIC FLEX SYSTEM™ 2nd GENERATION
NMD’s 2nd generation Parabolic Flex System™ now features a one piece 1.9lb Kinetic Core, integrated with Divinycell® vertical foam beams for increased strength while reducing overall board weight. The new PFS™ design still enables the outer rail profiles to flex at a different rate to that of the central core, allowing the rails to contort in the wave face for optimum edge control. The increased stiffness of the central core construction maintains a more streamlined profile for unrivalled down the line board speed. NMD Parabolic Flex System™ – the best of both worlds. Australian Patent No. 2011101093 – other regions Patent Pending.
PFS II comes standard with Surlyn slick, channels, nose bulbs, single stringer and mesh.
Based on our groundbreaking Parabolic Flex System technology, the ProRide™ range of boards feature our all-new Parabolic Base™ for revolutionary strength-to-weight performance allowing you to ride a thinner board without a loss in nose to tail stiffness. Parabolic Airex T90 high-density structural foam beams are embedded vertically into the base of the core for unrivalled flex-to-recoil energy transfer. Scientifically proven Vapor Tracks track water along the length of the beams creating a hydrodynamic effect through the center of the board for electric board speed.
ProRides comes standard with Surlyn slick, channels, nose bulbs, single stringer, mesh and signature deck contours.
Constructed from premium grade 1.9lb density Arpro Polypropylene resins, Kinetic Core™ delivers amazing projection and response as a result of high pressure cell-fusion created during the blank manufacturing process. Kinetic Core is a warm water core available in various reinforcement configurations, each tuned-in for specific wave conditions.
Kinetic PP boards come standard with Surlyn slick, channels, nose bulbs and single stringer.
Developed using cutting-edge expansion cell technology, NRG+ Core™ is a cool water core specifically formulated to meet key performance characteristics as demanded by our worldwide team of the sports elite riders. Now with the added strength of a 1/4” Kinetic PP deck underlay, NRG+ Core™ gives you an even better mix of flex, recoil, projection and pop.
INTERCHANGEABLE STRINGER SYSTEM:
The ISS has been two year in the making and finally is available as part of our CNC Custom Range. You can choose from any of the existing cores with the option of having the ISS in order to greatly increase the versatility of your board! All ISS boards come complete with the standard base flex stringer. Choose which additional stringers you need and add them to your order!
ISS StiffFlex Carbon Fibre
100% aerospace grade 3K Carbon Fibre biaxial weave meets DRC integration to create a lightweight stringer with incredible high tensile strength. Precision calibrated for warm water temps and for riders with a need for speed.
The ISS SoftFlex stringer incorporates a proprietary lay-up consisting of 20% Fibreglass spiral weave integrated with 80% unidirectional Fibreglass strands to deliver a stringer with a softer flex action. DRC designed for cold climates and riders who like a more flexible board.
DRC inspired construction combines 20% Carbon with 80% Fibreglass spiral weave resulting in a stringer with exceptional feel and a smooth flex action. The workhorse of the ISS range, the MidFlex stringer is designed to perform in mild water temps and is an essential component of any serious ISS quiver.
The stiffest stringer in the ISS range. Advanced composite construction featuring 60% Carbon interwoven with 40% Fibreglass to create a high strength DRC flex profile with outstanding torsional shaft stiffness. The ‘go to’ stringer for the tropics and riders who like to surf on rail.
Classic 45º angle on a 385º radius cut. Loose and responsive, Crescent Tails are the preferred tail shape of the NMD Pro Team. CNC cut for maximum precision.
The protruding bulb increases the boards planning surface at the tail area for down the line speed with wings that lock the tail in throughout the turn. Machine rounded for rider comfort.
