Patrik Diethelm has given a strong boost to its production and for the year 2020 introduced a number of major innovations. Among the various proposed lines, one prominent one is definitely the F-Race line, consists of boards expressly developed for speed lovers who don't want to use slalom boards as well. Patrik and his team studied six 100 a 150 liters, able to meet all the conditions of use. Color is definitely one of the elements that characterizes PD boards in the new year, and the F-Race series doesn't fail to do that. The new black/orange livery stands out for its aggressiveness, how it's right that it's in a sports performance-oriented board. Going into the details, the Patrik team didn't just work on the look and feel, but it changed the shape where needed, to make them even better performing.
First it expanded the flat area of the hull under the straps, to improve inline conduction, making it easier and more stable. The outline follows in more moderate form that of the slalom series, presenting a double concave with side plates and a V running from the front straps to the stern. The new scoop/rocker line with extra flat under the straps keeps the board stable and less responsive and nervous than a slalom, allowing the rider a less demanding lead. The distribution of the volume also appears harmonious, concentrating in the central/back area, thinning towards the bow, without generating imbalances.
The double concave with side flat keeps the board controllable even in the presence of bad chop, while the V up to the stern helps in the bowls, when you need to push on the fin, increasing speed and jibe control. The rails have been carefully studied in the form, to minimize friction, promoting fast and safe progress. The blanket has been softened, to ensure comfort, combined with the presence of new, thicker and more comfortable pads. The fins are Tuttle for the 100 and 110 liters, While the 120 until the 150 litres is present an even more robust Deep Tuttle foil ready. Not least, Patrik's choice of construction technology: For these tables the preference was given to a more durable and less demanding blanket in full Carbon/Kevlar for the bridge, flanked by Biax Glass for the hull; all this to give stiffness and flexibility where needed.
