TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION

Details

This version of the WTF?! comes out of a different mould because the characteristics required are so different from the standard version to match the needs of the young riders that are smaller and lighter.

To make the board more manageable, the dimensions were brought down a lot, and the thickness has been reduced to keep the weight down and the flex in tune with the target rider weight. The rocker is moderate to generate speed quickly while keeping control at all times. 

Inspired from our HRD rail design, the WTF uses thicker rails under the feet, offering maximum lift and balance while in the middle of the board. At the tips, the profile of the rail gets thinner for a better grip and edging capabilities. 

The bottom of the board features a V-double concave with tip channels to improve the grip and the water release from the board. These channels also break the surface tension of the water, making the landings smoother and more manageable.

The deck of the board is flat to provide a more consistent connection to the board for the foot straps or bindings. This helps again with control and also makes it easy to get bindings that fit the board.

The board is built around a wood core with glass reinforcement and carbon tapes for better load transmission when loading up for the pop. It’s the same construction as the adult’s WTF?! but tuned for smaller and lighter riders. 

Once you are on the water, you will notice the speed at which the board travels and how effortless it is to ride. Pop is gained easily and no matter your speed, or the state of the water, you can be assured of a good take off every time you load up the edge. Landings are smooth, and the WTF has been designed to help you to complete your tricks with higher consistency than ever before.

The board is available in two sizes: 127 x 37 and 130 x 39 cm. It is equipped with our UNIBox fins in 35 or 55mm, these offer better speed and improved glide with less drag thanks to their thinner profile.

technology

The LITE TECH (integrated TPU Element) patented by ROSSIGNOL Snowboards is an F-ONE exclusivity in the kiting world bringing an incredible look and design to your board.

Teh DIRECT DRIVE technology is present on our boards since 2001, and refers to a board with minimal thickness, a 100% wood core and a 100% fiberglass envelope. 

These interlocking elements meet the F-ONE standards for a kite board and provide maximum durability.

Depending on the model, this cross-shaped structure is either an add-on or cnc-machined directly into the mass of the wood core.
Using it is also a guarantee of a better control whatever the water conditions.
The Twist Control can also optimize the ratio weight/rigidity and weight/reactivity.

The V double concave bottom shapes combines a general V with two concave channels on each side of the center line

The V provides maneuverability while the concaves channel the water along the board. The result is a lively board providing a comfortable ride with easy landings

Flexibility and impact absorption are synonymous with comfort; however comfort does not mean sacrificing control and performance.
It is difficult to reach this compromise, and this is the main reason behind the development of the DYNAMIC FLEX, which can absorb the chop, without compromising the control and edging.

Teh DIRECT DRIVE technology is present on our boards since 2001, and refers to a board with minimal thickness, a 100% wood core and a 100% fiberglass envelope. 

These interlocking elements meet the F-ONE standards for a kite board and provide maximum durability.

The DIRECT DRIVE translate into a precise board, quick and active as it erases the flaws of the water surface, collecting its energy and giving it back for the best performance.
The feeling of riding a rock solid board always in contact with the water without suffering from it is even greater.

We sought to gain support and a more progressive and constant contact in the water.
Starting with a surfing rail type, we have only kept the bottom part and the result is a reversed rail profile.
Its entry into the water is more gradual and the board feedback is softer.

The wood forms the heart of your board and gives it most of its mechanical properties: strength, flex and resilience (ability to return to its original shape).

Each year, in order to master these properties, we seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.

The patented UNIBOX system and RESPONSE fins have a radical effect: the asymmetrical profile improves the general ride and early planing. 

However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings.
