JS XERO GRAVITY EASY RIDER | CARBOTUNE Technology
6 YEARS IN THE MAKING.
After six years of research aim and development, our brand-new carbon construction is ready to be released to the world. We’ve used dozens of different layups from our testing grounds at home on the Gold Coast & around Australia, to wave pools and a huge variety of waves throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Morocco and Brazil. CarboTune is what we’ve settled on as the unanimous favourite from JS and the Traktor Team in each of these conditions. The aim was always for endurance and performance unlike anything seen before in surfboard construction – now we’re here.
THE BALANCE OF WEIGHT AND DURABILITY TO EQUAL THE PERFORMANCE WE WANT.
The benchmark after making Formula 1 style surfboards for 25 years is all about getting the balance of weight and durability into a board that will perform better than ever. We’re using all of that documented data on what is the optimal weight for each number of litres, for each surfer, and the type of surfing that they do. All of that has gone into making sure these CarboTune boards come out at those ideal specs. It’s a finely tuned balance for weight and durability to equal the performance we want. What the construction comes back to is a relatively simple formula: Weight & Durability = Performance. That’s why it’s taken 6 years – these elements have finally come together with the ideal balance for any surfboard made in CarboTune to both perform and last.
EASY RIDER DIMS
Easy rider dimensions created with the goal of making our most popular models even more approachable. After a year of JS riding more different boards than ever before alongside Occy and Parko, with an R&D process riddled with injuries, lower fitness levels & work obligations, JS designed our EasyRider specs for easy paddling coupled with high performance surfing. Foam is hidden in all the right places for extra floatation, but with lowered rails that can still be buried at high speed.
Xero Gravity is the next in line of our favourite fusions ever. Ridden the same dimensions as your Monsta Box, with the same magic rocker, this will be your all-rounder even more geared to high performance surfing than the updated Xero, which in comparison has the slightly flatter Blak Box rocker and a fuller outline. Xero Gravity also features a similar foil to the previous Xero, with foam hidden in the deck, but a slightly pulled down rail that’s fine tuned for manoeuvrability & quick response.
We’ve streamlined the range while keeping all the nuance and specialised qualities you want to have a board model for every type of wave. Want a super groveller? That’s the Sub Xero. A more performance-oriented option to handle flatter conditions? That’s the new Xero, now even closer to your original Blak Box. And for a performance all-rounder – that’s right here, the Xero Gravity.
It’s our direct update on the board that won QS and CT events in the type of conditions we all surf every day. And it was voted the Australian board of the year back-to-back, due to overdelivering in countless sessions for regular surfers in average to pumping waves. If the Monsta Box made you enjoy surfing more, Xero Gravity will send you to the moon.
