VECTOR NET TECHNOLOGY (VCT)

Our new Vector Net technology – with it’s stringer and bamboo wood reinforcements in key areas – ensures a great strength to weight ratio and comes with exceptional frame stability for a direct and responsive feel.

CUSTOM CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY - RACE (CCS) CUSTOM CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY - RACE (CCS)

CUSTOM CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY - RACE (CCS)

Carbon Kevlar is a high-end technology with perfectly balanced weight, strength and impact resistant characteristics. Carbon rail sections and a complete Hi-tech Carbon bottom layer deliver an impeccable weight / stiffness ratio. With a fantastic dynamic flex due to its very fine weave, it is used for our high performance Falcon, Blitz and Strike Carbon models*.

*Blitz 14’ x 26” and Strike 14’ x 25” are also available in a budget oriented Biax Fibre PVC Sandwich Light Finish Technology.

CUSTOM CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY - TOURING (CCS) CUSTOM CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY - TOURING (CCS)

CUSTOM CARBON SANDWICH LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY - TOURING (CCS)

Our Custom Carbon Sandwich Light Finish Technology in our LTD Touring Boards features a Full Biax Carbon body with wood veneer sandwich on the deck for an unbeatable weight / performance / price ratio.

BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY (BS) BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY (BS)

BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY (BS)

A lightweight bamboo wood / glass composite construction with great strength and unique optics. Combined with some extra glass reinforcements, it absorbs high impact forces. Overall a very durable layup with unique wooden deck optics and great weight / price ratio.

CORK / FLAX / WOOD COMPOSITE LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (CFWC) CORK / FLAX / WOOD COMPOSITE LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (CFWC)

CORK / FLAX / WOOD COMPOSITE LIGHT FINISH TECHNOLOGY (CFWC)

Built with Flax, Cork, Wood and Bio Resin instead of the classic Glass and PVC sandwich, our Eco technology uses sustainable plant based raw materials wherever possible, without compromising performance.

PURE LIGHT TECHNOLOGY PURE LIGHT TECHNOLOGY

PURE LIGHT TECHNOLOGY

The Pure Light technology is an exceptionally durable and featherweight construction. Created for frequent use, the glass reinforcements ensure optimum stiffness. A thick, durable outer skin gives the board’s hull great strength, as well as extra ding and impact resistance.

SOFT TOP TECHNOLOGY (HRS) SOFT TOP TECHNOLOGY (HRS)

SOFT TOP TECHNOLOGY (HRS)

High Resistance Composite technology is a lightweight and durable construction for everyday use. Strategic use of glass reinforcements ensure adequate stiffness, while a strong, thick outer skin gives the board’s hull phenomenal strength. With extra ding and impact resistance, it is used on the Fly Soft Top giving a user-friendly soft deck.

DOUBLE LAYER LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (DL LIGHT) DOUBLE LAYER LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (DL LIGHT)

DOUBLE LAYER LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (DL LIGHT)

The Double Layer Light technology is our Premium construction. Featuring a second PVC layer, which is welded directly to the core layers and around the V-Drop Stitch material – the heart of each Fanatic Inflatable. An additional third layer of coloured rail bands round off the highly durable and premium quality, with stylish optics of the deck print.

The benefits of the Double Layer Light construction when compared to the standard Double Layer technology is a 20 – 25 % reduction in weight, and around 25 – 30 % increase in stiffness. Simply the best inflatable technology out there!

STRINGER TECHNOLOGY (STR) STRINGER TECHNOLOGY (STR)

STRINGER TECHNOLOGY (STR)

Utilising the best Drop Stitch material available on the market, our Stringer technology provides an outstanding durability / weight / price / performance ratio with its centre stinger keeping the shape strong and stiff, while reducing weight and price at the same time.

DROP STITCH LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (PURE AIR) DROP STITCH LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (PURE AIR)

DROP STITCH LIGHT TECHNOLOGY (PURE AIR)

Our single layer Drop-Stitch Light technology provides a quality construction without reaching deep into your pockets. Still produced at one of the world’s most renowned manufacturers, this inflatable technology is created with top quality materials and production standards you’d expect from Fanatic.

DOUBLE LAYER HEAVY DUTY TECHNOLOGY (DL HD) DOUBLE LAYER HEAVY DUTY TECHNOLOGY (DL HD)

DOUBLE LAYER HEAVY DUTY TECHNOLOGY (DL HD)

Built to last, our Double Layer (HD) technology is an inflatable construction for heavy-duty usage. The triple layer rail construction ensures incredible stiffness and durability. Stiffness and performance is guaranteed, as the Double Layer HD technology can take more than 20 PSI of air pressure if needed.

HD 200 TECHNOLOGY

HD 200 TECHNOLOGY

For our large models carrying a group of people we’re using our special extra thick and extra durable Single Skin HD technology, with new ultra strong double layer bottom (Fly Air L and XL). With additional layers on the rail plus stabilizing rail bands for extra stiffness, our oversized special models are of similar rigidly as our smaller Premium iSUPs, while carrying multiple riders.

CAD DESIGN - SHAPED BY SEBASTIAN WENZEL

CAD SHAPING

CAD SHAPING

Sebastian Wenzel has achieved great things in his shaping career and with over a decade of CAD experience under his belt, there is no question that he is one of the leading experts on computer aided board design. CAD shaping provides board builders with a platform to accomplish unprecedented levels of precision in the designs they produce and Sebastian does just that. CAD also allows us to store every board built since 2004 on a digital data- base so we can evolve, push boundaries and innovate, rather than recreate. Sebastian’s decades of board building knowledge and experience is funnelled into every design created. Through Sebastian’s lead and the collaboration of every Fanatic team member, we continue to build on our already existing library of facts, figures, successful shapes, proven rocker lines, volume flows and rail lines. As we advance it’s clear to see that Fanatic CAD shaping techniques work as our boards keep getting better. FACT.

OCEAN MINDED

OCEAN MINDED

OCEAN MINDED

Our Ocean Minded spirit is the driving force behind our passion to create and innovate. Complemented by our ethos of ›protecting what you love,‹ we celebrate the challenges we face each day to come up with new ways to combine both.

Acknowledging the part we play in creating a cleaner, greener environment we work hard to source ethical and raw materials to utilise in the production, packaging and distribution of our products.

This year, we are proud to announce the expansion of our Gecko Eco Edition range, which now extends across three models, 110, 120 and 133. Achieving a premium product with a unique layup of flax, cork and bamboo, we’re one step closer to accomplishing an eco-friendly future.

Ozone-Free Foam Blanks
Blown without generating ozone and greenhouse gases and expanded using of just steam for zero waste / dust product.

Less Paint More Picturesque
By using optimized colour components and resin systems based on their solvent concentration we’ve managed to produce striking graphics that have minimized environmental consequences.

Package Smart
Streamlined transportation packaging without compromising protection demands less fuel to deliver and can be mostly recycled once again.

Audited Facilities For Healthier Workers
All of our audited production sites take particular care to extract all dust and gas particles through adequate vacuum and filtration systems.
