The best of GONG on inflatable boards

Chip inflatable technology

Technical details:

  • Board, 100% Mirasol Drop Stitch, the best of the best.
  • Single layer 1000D PVC over the deck and hull, super light board.
  • Double layer 1000D PVC over the rails for a super solid board.
  • 6’’ thickness (15cm), super rigid (4’’ (10cm) for the 8’0 that is made for smaller sized riders).
  • Pressure for use : 15 psi. Quality controlled at 25psi at the factory.

The pros of the GONG Inflatable Chip technology:

  • Our boards are rigid and are totally surfable.
  • Esthetic : the boards have a beauty that is unique.
  • Solid : fully resistant to rough treatment.
  • Dynamic thanks to the double layered rails.
  • Durable : 100 repairable.

We fabricate these GONG Boards with this technology in one of the best Inflatable Boat factories in the world. Experts in the inflatable sports and producers of semi rigid boats, rafts, kayaks, inflatable structures and of course SUPs.

Our factory work according to our specifications and it is our Shaper, Patrice Guenole, himself that trains the workers to build to these specifications. It is an expensive and consequential task but it guarantees us a finer quality. The returns statistics in our after sales service is extremely low and user testimonials on the Forum are witness to the irreproachable quality of our Boards.

At every step of production we have the permanent concern to save our planet.

Attention: Do not confuse this technology with that of the technology used by Low Cost companies that use a very poor version of the drop stitch and a single layer of PVC. GONG Boards cost less but are not ‘Low Cost’!!

Inflatable Couine Marie technology

The pros of the Inflatable GONG Couine Marie Technology:

  • Woven Dropstitch Double Layer Welded technology, the best compromise between weight/stiffness/strength. Combining our historical Double Layer Welded technology with the new Woven Dropstitch, this technology is by far the most reliable, lightest and stiffest.
  • Weight savings of around 20% compared to the classic Double Layer (no glue between the 2 welded PVC layers).
  • Rigidity gain of 30% compared to standard technology.
  • Strength gain: twice as thick as standard technology.
  • Double layer of PVC on the rails.
  • Triple layer central stringer on deck and hull for maximum rigidity and reduced vibration.
  • Premium Woven Dropstitch: the slightest irregularity is refused and the batch is resold to low cost factories.
  • High density Dropstitch Woven: with more threads per square meter than a basic Woven, it resists much higher pressures, lasts much longer, and does not present a risk of explosion.
  • Working pressure: 15 PSI. Our Stand Up Paddle Boards are perfectly rigid at 15 PSI. There is no need to overinflate them, but you can mount them at 20 PSI without any problem.
  • Two-year Warranty on all our Inflatable Boards.
  • We keep in stock all the elements that make up your Board because we are manufacturers. So, you can easily repair them and make them last for more than ten years. It’s as simple as repairing a bicycle wheel.

ICS TECHNOLOGY – Inflatable & Carbon Synthesis

The advantages of inflatable technology

  • Woven Drop Stitch technology double layer welded.
  • Air pressure: 15 to 20 psi.
  • Transport: the board fits in a bag.
  • Practical: inflates in 2 minutes.
  • Aesthetics: The result is very beautiful.
  • Strong: great resistance to mistreatment.
  • Durable: 100% repairable.

The performances of carbon

  • ICS Full carbon prepreg plate.
  • High density foam stringers to limit flex and weight.
  • US rails machined directly from carbon: incredible performance.
  • Unmatched rigidity on the market.
  • Unparalleled dynamism and responsiveness.
  • A foil + inflatable set without any loss of sensations!

An innovative board thought out in the last detail

  • PVC reinforcement under the plate to protect the board with an extra layer.
  • PVC reinforcement on the plate to protect the carbon and the glue from the heat, and distribute the forces as far away as possible on the plate to avoid detachment.
  • Non-open brass inserts to screw the foil without any risk of damaging the board.
  • The 3 foot straps and the screws are offered with the board.

 

The shape of our carbon plate is the result of advanced engineering to combine low weight and incredible mechanical performance.

The rectangular outline ensures that the heels are always vertical to the plate, and therefore block longitudinal, lateral flexions and twist.

To optimize the weight, the glide and the management of these flexions, our plate has a unique 3D volume:

  • A beam at the axis prevents any bending.
  • A very smooth drop in volume towards the front reduces the thickness and therefore the weight, while retaining the necessary mechanics to support the pressures of the front heel.
  • At the back, the drop in volume is more brutal to recover the verticality which will support the beam effect of the plate even more.
  • The whole is “fluidized” according to a hydrodynamic study of the flows which also promotes speed in contact with water, which is valuable before flying but also to avoid a big loss of speed when touching the water surface
