2008 Ronix Covin 143 CSV1
Our quickest series generates more board angle and glide into the wake than any other style of "fast" board Chad has ever ridden. This new style of charger has a sharp rail in the belly for speedy edge transfers and more of a vertical sidewall in the tail so the board sets a strong edge without burying it. The Covin is a hard edging deck that doesnt sit super deep in the water, which can create too much drag and effective edge with the water. Instead, the speed comes from the edge angle, increased glide, and a tight load line that creates additional lift.
Salve e benvenuti to the Dark Core story. From the foot hills of northern Italy lived Alessio, a craftsman of gondolas infamous for a troubled past until one day as folk lore would have it. Stumbling thru the streets he passed upon a good friend of the family, this pizano gave him a secret sauce not to just make a stronger craft but a lighter one. As years went on he was known thru the area of alluring tourist journeys with a smoother voyage, while oarsmen respected the travel of his lighter glide. Alessios undisclosed ingredients were lost at some point during the fascist era, only to resurface decades later by our engineers. In honor of his past of scuro we present his lost secret, now stowed in our core.
Flex - Fabricated of a hybrid carbon/glass weave and machined out of our new Dark core blank. The envy of all other cores has a snap you dont find in a conventional poured foam core. A stiffer lighter alternative sets a higher standard of maintaining a boards structure thru the transition of a wake, rebounding with cushier impacts on bigger airs.
Weight - Up to 20% lighter than our other secret squirrel core. If you cant pull a 7 because of the boards slender physique you can at least impress everyone in the boat with how light it is.
8:12 Crew Developed - Out team spent this past year tweaking the flex while our engineers made sure it was stronger than any other construction we have ever built. More than just another construction our team swears by it.
