MISFIT SHAPES ‘VELVET STEEL’ Edition, partners with CARBON WRAP’s tried and tested ingenuity with design emphasis on minimal and sleek aesthetic. Structurally engineered for a lighter + stronger construction with optimum flex + performance.
“Both performance and appearance are paramount. We wanted a product that is visually enticing; that honours our brand aesthetic, AND that performs beyond expectation in the water. We are jazzed to partner with CARBON WRAP on what we believe to be the best EPS/ EPOXY surfboard technology on the market.” – Dave Howell (founder/ shaper)
CARBON WRAP™ Is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-defines the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled. Ultra-light, EPS cores are “wrapped" with strategically positioned, carbon fibre bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins. The carbon then "wraps” from the bottom, around the rails and onto the deck.
This unique method creates Carbon Wrap’s lively flex that loads and releases...resulting in next level speed and drive. Running along the rails, on the deck, the carbon acts as a rear foot power point, (increasing drive and control) and a patch to minimize pressure denting. Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are encased with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and our exclusive carbon deck inlay, which is strategically engineered to add fast re-flex memory under the surfer’s stance and suited to the surfers weight #FlexToWeight by tapering the carbon into long, pointed ends, forward and rear, the flex blends out naturally towards the nose and tail. A full layer of custom S-Cloth combined with another layer of custom Direct Sized 5oz, both Australian made, adds strength without rigidity, or excess weight and allows the board to maintain flex while alleviating crease points.
CARBON WRAP TECHNOLOGY: Lightweight, without sacrificing strength. Increases drive and provides a unique and lightning fast re-flex effect, propelling your surfing into the next level of performance.
CARBON WRAP™ ‘VELVET STEEL’ Edition is available across the entire M/SF/T range.
