New Fanatic Falcon 100 Launched!

Fanatic Falcon 100 Formula/Courserace

new generation in Formula Windsurfing boards is born! The new Falcon 100 features
a brand new design concept that gives new meaning to lightwind planing/top speed
combined with control – the Thunder Tail. Two deep channels run from
the tail, alongside the box, creating a triangle on either side of the fin box
– this allows the Falcon 100 to have a flatter rocker, that further boosts early
planing. Additionally the Thunder Tail reduces excessive lift in the tail area,
by reducing the surface in the tail thus giving the 100 excellent control! The
Thunder Tail makes the rail bite harder, grip better, and gives more traction
going upwind, plus there are zero spin-outs on the new Falcon 100. The rails
still maintain their full outline, so there is no loss in upwind performance,
because the entire rail works to get the board upwind, not like conventional
cut outs where parts of the rail are also cut out. Even in windy conditions
the tail width, in combination with the Thunder Tail gives you full pleasure.

Fast, free and comfortable sailing at all times. 100 x 270cm = a huge surface
area to get the new 100 planing in the slightest breeze! A thinner volume distribution
gives more control, and gets you even closer to the water! The Falcon 100 is
destined to be the absolute last word in Formula windsurfing, and Fanatic are
confidently expecting some great results in the forthcoming season…

reduces excessive lift in the tail area
Flatter Rocker Line
Increased control and upwind drive,
optimised trim creates loose, lively feeling, especially in choppy
Optimum V-Shape Maximum in tail for control and upwind
angle, reduced in mid-section for control and speed
Dynamic Nose Flex Utilising a combination of stiff/flexible
materials, the Falcons flex and react to choppy water, reducing
vibrations and maximising speed through increased rigidity in the
rear – a dynamic flex effect
Carbon T-Stringer Inserted between the tail and mast
track to minimise twist effect, thereby ensuring a consistant and
enduring scoop line
High Modulus Carbon
Aerospace quality carbon, as used in
helicopter blades, guarantees stiffness through unprecedented quality
Deep Tuttle Box Absorbs high lateral forces on fin
to transfer this power into lift and speed
