You want the best kiteboard on the planet?
Here it is: the Carbon Pro Line RIP.
Hold it in your hands and you’ll immediately feel what’s possible.
The Carbon Pro RIP is our masterpiece.
Range of use of the Carbon Pro Line RIP
Highlights of the Carbon RIP in detail
The new Angel Fiber Carbon allows us to align each carbon fiber individual at the optimum angle and also to build the layers extremely flat. With this we achieve what was previously unimaginable: a weight saving of as much as 15% to our previously super light carbon kiteboards.
The Carbon Pro RIP 39 weighs only 1750g! A milestone and record for a kiteboard in 139 x 42 cm with wood core and the guarantee for an incredible riding experience.
The ultra light weight lets you experience kiteboarding much more intensively. Riding over the water, the energy of the wind and flying through the air – all this is now even more playful and intuitive.
In addition, there is a massive acceleration and top speed – goosebumps feeling guaranteed. Radical turns, load & pop, board offs, all of this suddenly becomes super easy, without blocking mass on the feet.
Superior riding dynamic
One of the most important features of the new Carbon Pro Line kiteboards is the perfect balance between sportiness & comfort. Of course you expect a sporty tuning from a carbon kiteboard. However, you don’t want a hard and lifeless carbon board under your feet. For the superior riding dynamics of carbon kiteboards, all factors are optimally calibrated to each other.
The precision-milled woodcore gives the kiteboard its natural dynamics, durability and damping. This is not achieved with any other material as core. Even if foam or honeycomb cores can push the weight to under 1,000g – wood is and remains the best material for the core of a kiteboard.
The Adaptive Speed Bottom, bottom curve and outline complement the tuning.
Extensive long sessions are no problem and you will celebrate every load & pop.
In a few seconds at top speed! Like a race car, the Carbon Pro Line kiteboard pulls away with immense acceleration. The speed rush does not break and the kiteboard runs through the water like a razor blade. Just the thing for speed freaks.
And simple physics: the faster you ride, the further up you go. With the Carbon Pro Line kiteboard you can shoot out massively to previously unconquered heights.
In Big Air you can unleash the radical power of carbon construction. Energy loading and rebound speed can’t be matched with conventional construction or simple design carbon stripes. You will notice this immediately when you load up your kiteboard for a jump.
Even in the medium wind range, you can reach jump heights that are otherwise only reserved for the pros. In the upper wind range, the excellent control will always let you find the best pop. Then there are no limits in height and distance.
For the landing, the brilliant tuning comes into play and the Adaptive Speed Bottom breaks up the water for a smooth touch down.
Handcrafted in Germany
Each Carbon Pro Line kiteboard is individually manufactured in Germany using vacuum infusion process. Highest precision and decades of experience in dealing with resin and carbon enable the extreme performance and weight values.
The components for the Carbon Pro Line kiteboards are also handpicked and travel as short distances as possible. Starting with the Angel Fiber Carbon, which is also produced in Germany exclusively for SPLEENE, to the 3D milled wood core and the stainless steel inserts from European production.
What technology is behind the SPLEENE Carbon Pro RIP?
Half a decade of experience has gone into the Carbon Pro line. The latest generation combines all development highlights and innovations
Advanced jet bottom
The shape on the underside of the RIP is characterized by a double concave. As a result, the kiteboard glides earlier and more freely. Instead of a simple radius, the SPLEENE Advanced Jet Bottom uses a parabolic shape. Compared to a conventional double concave, the Advanced Jet Bottom allows significantly more edge grip, pushing the water along the edges. The effect is particularly evident in choppy conditions. In addition, the water surface is broken up when the kiteboard hits it and allows a soft landing after jumps.
X³ Carbon Construction
A carbon fabric specially developed for SPLEENE is used in the Carbon Pro Line. The fibers are not intertwined but arranged as a scrim. This allows the minimum use of resin with the most efficient flow of forces. The combination of the carbon layers in -30° | 0° | +30° optimally distributes torsional forces, far better than conventional 45° configurations.
The production takes place by hand in Germany to ensure the greatest possible care in the manufacturing process.
High-end carbon kiteboards are manufactured at the construction limit in order to weigh as little as possible. The Carbon Pro kiteboards are specially reinforced at the critical points in the pad area. This allows optimal durability and security against breakage.
The slight elevation on the side of the kiteboard increases comfort enormously. This means kitesurfing without clipping or splashing, especially in rough conditions.
Spider Frame 3D Deck
The upper side of the Carbon Pro RIP is constructed in the Spider Frame 3D contour. This incision makes the wood core thinner and the kiteboard significantly lighter. In addition, the flex is precisely determined via the V-deck in the board. The kiteboard gets its playful riding feel and always offers excellent grip in carved turns.
All SPLEENE Kiteboarding Carbon Pro Line kiteboards are produced with a CNC milled wooden core. Thanks to the outstanding damping properties of wood, the SPLEENE kiteboards are very comfortable to ride and protect the joints for many hours. With the ultra-light Carbon Pro Boards we don’t do without the unsurpassed material wood. Even if foam cores achieve better values in terms of weight, the driving experience of wood remains unsurpassed.
Straps, pads and fins
The SPLEENE straps, pads and fins are perfectly matched to SPLEENE kiteboards. The pads are anatomically adapted to the foot and provide an extra good grip thanks to the toe edge. For the straps, we offer the standard straps with velcro and the pro straps with ratchets. All straps allow different mounting positions and can be individually adjusted. The SPLEENE kiteboarding fins are made of extra hard G10 material for best performance.
