The 2020 Quantum is designed to perform in all types of wind swell type wave sailing. Although it excels in onshore conditions, it is actually the most versatile wave board in the range, featuring a huge performance register and super easy sailing in any type of wave. Thanks to the five carbon slotboxes you can tune the board for a huge spectrum of conditions, from light wind to high-wind and from onshore to sideshore. Quantum is able to adapt and thrive in any environment.
Keeping with the popular traits in previous versions of Quantum, it is super loose and effective in smaller surf, but now it also handles bigger waves, with faster down the line riding capacity and snappy rail to rail turns. It also handles choppier conditions more effectively due to the single-to-double concave which absorbs chops and drives the water towards the fins with a slight V in the tail. This hull shape configuration creates a stability and control even in the most demanding conditions. The wider and curvy outline allows Quantum to stay lively even when loaded with a larger sail. This very effective volume distribution also allows the rider to choose a slightly bigger board yet still have drive in turns and a tight turning radius.
If you’re looking for one board that does it all, Quantum is your weapon of choice.
All 2020 boards feature a hot-coat paint finish. This process combines the colour pigment with the outer layer of a hard epoxy gel coat, this improves the board colour longevity, making it almost impossible to stratch off, it produces an extremely UV-resistant coating that ensures the boards colour resists fading in strong sunlight, all of this whilst saving weight by replacing the base coat paint, and two layers of top coat paint
The Electric Flex Technology
Our layup, construction, and reinforcement are all placed in where user needs and they all work in together to create the optimal stiffness to weight ration. The construction moves with you, rather and against you, which makes the board feel more lively in every movement. We call this technology Electric Flex. For our wave boards we use 45 degree carbon layup for maximum the strength and flex and for our flatwater boards we use 30 degree carbon layup for more vertical strength. Basically, flex and stiffness where its needed. The main features of the construction is the PVC Sandwich stringer. This is the spine of the board which absorbs and distributes the force from impacts throughout the boards entire construction. This eliminates unnecessary breakage as stress is shared between the entire hull, creating a much more durable construction. The stringer also helps to maintain the rocker curve during manoeuvres.
Standard fin setup // TRI
The tri fin Quantum rivals in most freewave boards for early planing, upwind performance and ease of sailing while still providing awesome turning performance. The tri fin setup provides plenty of power for bigger sails and excellent control for jumping. On the wave this setup gives the best possible projection and drive in turns, assisting the sailor in keeping speed through the bottom turn, even in slower waves.
ALTERNATIVE FIN SETUP // TWIN
The twin fin Quantum is the fastest and most free and lively running of the bunch. With only two fins, drag is lower and the fin power acts further back on the board. This lifts the nose of the board which in a straightline adds further speed and gives more looseness and quicker reactions in turns. The combination of twin fin and the fast tail rocker provides great ability to set up the top turn either for slashy release or solid power hooks.
Alternative fin setup // QUAD
For sideshore, bigger waves or choppier conditions, a quad setup will add total grip and control. The front fins will push some more rail in the water and lower the nose, adding more security both on the way out and on a fast wave. The lower maximum fin depth also gives a smoother and easier turn entry at very high speeds,which comes in handy when you need some fin for upwind
One board for all conditions. Medium rocker, with a fast tail design and low drag curvature for optimized to performance in a wide range of conditions. Shallow single concave feeding a light accelerating V, creates control and predictability but allows fast rail to rail performance for snappy top turns. Shortened swallow tail increase responsiveness in tight turns. Quantum comes with 5 carbon slotboxes which gives you a large spectrum for trim options.
