The Anti range represents, since its release, the antechamber to the R&D innovations on the question of Strapless kitesurfing. This board left its mark on people’s minds because it simply was the first noseless board on the Kitesurf market !
Declined in various sizes to match specific programs, its reputation is well-renowned.
This new 5’2 explores new dimensions yet again, in terms of shape as much as construction.
At HB-Surfkite, we think that constant improving of the kitesurfing practice goes through the development of new products, new manufacturing techniques and new materials.
Our brand has always been true to ourselves and our practice. Once again, we pushed the limits when it comes to construction.
Discover now the new exclusive construction BIAX TECH !
First of all, the program, we wanted a versatile board. Not the budget to have 2 boards ? Hard to travel with several boards ? Here is a board that doesn’t confine itself to only one discipline, and will be as comfortable in the waves as in freestyle and even freeride in strong winds or light tradewinds.
Second key criteria, accessibility : no adaptation time, this board is easy and comfortable in all conditions.
In terms of shape, we completely went off the beaten track to explore a new feeling. The new Anti 5’2 is way thinner than the boards from the other ranges. The associated rails are also more rounded, offering a very good grip in the water while keeping a lot of fluidity.
The new and larger Diamond Tail grants huge control on the rear foot and secures the moves in the air or while surfing.
The rocker is tight enough to enhance performances in light winds, do not worry, the nose rocker won’t keep you from going, even in the most critical waves sections.
The large concave and the channels at each end reinforce this feeling of control, the pivot point is very short and encourages you to push the limits. Surfing on flat water, in small conditions or on the rail when the trough augments, is now possible thanks to this innovative and polyvalent design.
The BIAX bamboo technology allows you to get to a new level, After several years of research and prototypes tested throughout the world by the international team, the BIAX construction, along with the Paulownia parabolic wooden rails, gives an exceptional structure to the board.
It is 15 % lighter than our classic construction, who already was the lighest on the market !
Furthermore, it also grants amazing responsive and flex features while keeping the durability every HB boards have, known to be the most durable on the market !
The particularity with BIAX is to use bamboo at 45° under the hull, whereas in most cases, it is aligned.
The main reason is located on the board’s FLEX. It is the key element on which we have been working because it is the main feature that lets you have a performing and enjoyable board to ride.
We also call it the rebound effect, the one which allows you to be explosive in your navigation, whether it is in pop to jump, or in a board’s bottom turn boost.
Balance wasn’t easy to find, between the bamboo blades, its application on the top or the bottom, or both… our numerous tests led to this excellent balance.
The notion of twisting is also taken into account.
The second reason concerns the board’s WEIGHT. Don’t believe the resellers who assure you that weight is synonomous with quality, they just can’t do it ! A board’s lightness means performance and fluidity, the holy grail when it comes to riding.
The third reason that led to into developing this unique technology is COMFORT.
Having a Formula 1 that is out of control or difficult to access has no point, the BIAX construction offers a fluid and precise feel which gives you a progression tool like no other !
It is a genuine revolution for HB-Surfkite to be the creator of a lighter and more solid construction than our exclusive previous construction which already was one of the most accomplished in the kitesurfing world.
Seeing as this revolution will stay relevant for a long time, the aestheticism of the latter stayed minimalist. Our Lafayette 5’8 and 5’10 both having this technology, simply display a touch of color on the tail. The bamboo’s orientation of 45 % under the hull indicates this revolutionary construction.
Bamboo technology BIAX allows a new level. After several years of research and prototypes tested throughout the world by the international team, the BIAX construction combined with Paulownia parabolic wood rails give an exceptional structure to the board. This one is 15% lighter than our classic construction, which was already the lightest on the market!
In addition, it offers flex characteristics, an incomparable response while maintaining the strength of all HB boards, known to be the strongest on the market!
