Rrd - Maquina V4 - Year 2019
Pads and Fins are Included in the Price
The Maquina V4 is here and it’s looking sharp! This is our classic thruster and it is the one you want to be riding when you need to have a totally reliable shape. With such a pure surfboard feel, the Rrd Maquina v4 becomes an extension of your mind and allows your eyes to draw lines on the waves.
The newest version, the Maquina V4, has a newly redesigned outline. The nose is now slightly wider making this board more well rounded and lively in lighter winds and smaller surf. Now with a soft winger design, the tail of the board is slightly wider; 20 cm from the tip of the tail.
This combination helps planing and catching waves because of the progressive hold when getting powered up and riding fast down the face of a huge wave!
Charge the biggest swells with this grippy stick while maintaining precise control over the direction of the board in any situation due to the new outline, reduced volume, and slightly thinner rails.
Find out for yourself why this is our international team rider’s favorite stick when the situation boils down to a pure kitesurfing board that allows them to fully commit and ride as hard as they can.
Blink if you dare! You may just miss an unforgettable moment of joy with the new Maquina V4.
Maximizing lightweight does not only mean making a light board, but making a light board that LASTS. This is what we accomplished with the new UC construction; the updated & improved version of the LTD technology. The EPS core is re-known for lighter weight/strength ratio and memory compared to PU foam but it has one big limit, it absorbs water in case of a hole or a crack through the laminate.
Fortunately, we have put together the best of the both worlds. In order to accomplish this feat, we have cut a 4 cms wide slice that runs throughout the entire outline of the board and have replaced the EPS external outline with 2 x PU outline slices that are glued to the EPS core. By adhering the PU to the EPS, we have created a 4 cms wide “waterproof” band that covers the entire rail, nose, and tail areas, keeping them totally waterproof in case of a crack through the laminate.
The EPS core covers 80% of the board and creates a lively and buoyant center while the PU foam slices on the rails cover about 20% of the total foam volume. The PU rail slices combined with the deck and bottom carbon stringers laminated over the EPS core create a fantastic and unique pop and flex feel.
The Carbon net of the previous LTD construction has been modified with the use of a stronger but more flexible net. This new net is made with Innegra fibers, crossed at 45°, and combined with unidirectional, red colored, polyester fibers that keep the maximum flex from nose to tail. To finish the board off, and to keep it looking amazing for a long time, it is laminated with premium UV resistant Epoxy Resin formulated with a 30% Biodegradable mix. The new United Cores of RRD (UC) construction will provide that lightweight, sharp, precise EPS feel with the added bonus of longevity and durability.
The Classic PU construction has been developed to create pure surfboards for pure wave riding and to allow control over choppy waters. We have improved the weight and strength of the boards this year. We are now using a hi-volume lightweight pigment in the resin. This type of resin fills up the holes in the foam and reduces the amount of resin content in the glass fibers, making the boards lighter. The Classic boards have low fiber memory and low foam memory at the same time. This low memory gives our boards a proper surfboard feel. We recommend the Classic PU technology to the riders who love a comfortable ride which this construction provides through its flexibility.
