Freestyle, Big Air
The MITU PRO FLEX is available in 5 sizes from 5’2 to 5’10 and makes the most of its high-tech HD Foam Flex construction to offer the amazing Mitu shape that mimics the sensation of a traditional surfboard with incredible durability for unrivalled comfort and flow on the water.
With the compact outline, the single deep concave remains the DNA of the MITU PRO MODEL, it is this unique shape that helps the board get on the plane early, accelerate in an instant and give directional stability.
Comfort has been improved by a double concave in the front section making your ride smoother than ever. Travelling along the bottom of the board, the concave fades progressively towards the back where an increased kick in the tail rocker helps make the turns tight and effortless.
Combined with thin rails towards the rear, the fishtail offers the best combination between planing, stability, turning and pop.
This unique mix of planing, stability and maneuverability is what makes the MITU PRO MODELS so unique and versatile.
The largest sizes have a bit more emphasis on the planing ability and general stability, while the smaller sizes have more focus on maneuverability. All share the same shape features with their specific outline to make the most of the wave’s energy.
The MITU PRO FLEX uses the HD foam flex construction, where the ability of the board to flex has been emphasised, to provide outstanding comfort and a fantastic feeling on the wave. Built with HD foam of various densities, together with fiberglass and epoxy resin, this construction also features some deck stringers for more durability.
The shock absorbers are a unique feature on the market and provide the utmost level of comfort when combined with the full pad. The MITU PRO FLEX has some deck inserts built-in, so they can be equipped with foot straps. It comes with a thruster fin setup and a set of F-ONE FLOW RTM fins.
The introduction of this construction has marked a major change into the F-ONE surfboard range and especially on our three key products.
To face the ever higher constrains applied by the riders on their surfkites F-ONE has engineered a new foam composite construction with optimized flex for maximum reliability, comfort and manoeuvrability. The mechanical characteristics achieved by this construction provide a lighter weight and a perfect surfboard feel.
The deck has been recessed by 5mm on a wide area underneath the front foot in order to add an EVA shock absorbing foam layer.
This foam layer absorbs effectively all impacts for the riders and makes the board even more durable.
As the strapless discipline develops and grows, so does the demands it puts on the new boards.
With higher jumps and tougher landings, the stresses applied to the boards have migrated towards the rails and we have reinforced some of our constructions with lateral deck stringers to make the boards more robust in these areas. These stringers are not full depth to keep the flex and feel of the board.
RTM technology stands for RESIN TRANSFER MOLDING. This process uses a closed mold to produce accurate composite parts.
The resin is injected in the mold after it is closed, with the dry fiber having been placed inside beforehand. The closed mold injection allows for great shape accuracy and the epoxy resin used make the fins stronger and more responsive providing a sharper feel on the water.
