The Funkshen Nitro Platinum is an optimal performance model, that allows controlled acceleration and speed down the line, to hit sections and land high performance manoeuvres. The Nitro combines the latest in board technology with Skintec and PRS stringer, with a fresh and original graphic slick design.
Core: 1.9pcf Premium PP (A PP core of a 1.9 density is the industry standard for high performance bodyboards. This core material is designed for ultimate speed and projection. Its durability is unrivalled by any other core. Lightweight and rigid, this core will perform exceptionally well in warmer waters where other cores become slow and unresponsive). We shave the D12 core slightly thinner for the Nitro giving it move down the line speed without sacrificing core strength.
Stringer: Precision Recoil Stringer (also known as PRS is a tapered carbon fibre stringer. The PRS is wider and stiffer at the tail of the board, and becomes narrower and more flexible as it gets closer to the nose of the board. This stringer works with the core adding spring like recoil in the nose while maintaining stiffness in the tail, the perfect combination for board projection.)
Deck: Cellu-cushion 8lb PE Deck (8lb Polyethylene is the most superior form of deck skin for any bodyboard offering sufficient strength to ensure a longer lasting board.
Skintec Inlay: The most advanced compression cell technology ever developed for professional bodyboarding. The multi-layered Polymer composition is added under the deck skin of the board to allow for the skin to absorb pressure and impact compressions, creating increased strength & recoil making for a more responsive performance board. Skintec technology is only found in elite bodyboards).
Slick: DuPont Surlyn Slick (A Surlyn Slick is your only choice for slick if you demand the greatest amount of response and durability from your board. This high performance slick is the finest grade Surlyn made only by DuPont. Featuring an elastic-like quality to reduce the chance of creasing and damaging without minimising projection).
HyperMesh: Mesh layer added beneath the slick to further strengen the hull of the bodyboard. HyperMesh reduces the chance of creasing and damaging.
Rails: 55/45 Chine Double Rails (A rail design enabling a comfortable grip for holding the rails of the board when riding).
Channels: Yes (2 channels on the bottom of the board located at the tail to ensure stability and control on the face of the wave)
Tail: Clipped Crescent Tail (Provides superior control and hold on the wave face while also allowing for ease of rail to rail transitions and release from carves and spins.)
Additional Features: Nose Grips (Small bulbs on the underside of the nose of the board that enhance grip and control), Nose and Tail Buffers (An additional layer of padding on the nose and tail of the board that enhances longevity and durability), Two Piece Tail (An additional layer of 8lb PE Decking on the tail of the board to offer further support to the tail and visually look appealing).
