Description

Function :

Board dedicated to Kitefoil from freeride to freestyle.

Introduction :

The Catch FSP 2X have been developed in conjunction with our latest generation Allvator Foils to perform in the widest possible range of Kitefoil.

It’s a compact shape that will be able to approach “race” performance and give the best in the waves, while going through freestyle. What could be better than a Board capable of very high speeds, jumping, surfing and tricks in a 100m x 100m square?!

This new FSP 2X range offers a wide choice of volumes in dimensions under 5′. At the same time, wide at the tips and very short, this “square” outline carries a lot for its size. Never bulky, always sufficient, it offers an incredible feeling of lightness and freedom. For those to whom the word no-nose speaks, we’re all in!

Relatively thick in the middle for early gliding and volume. But also, ultra-thin rails to make the touchdowns totally painless. You can maneuver the chop upwind without any braking. It’s great.

The nose is wide for lift before flying, with a hull worked for a very soft water feel and to avoid falling forward. A wide central flat zone is present all over the hull to improve the glide at low speed. And its pronounced kick tail helps you to get out of the water. The Board is fine-tuned and honed for action.

With its countless adjustment possibilities, the Catch is suitable for all levels from beginner to Pro; but also for all Foils with a Top Plate.

Strapped or strapless, it’s up to you: it will be ultra performant strapped and very pleasant with its top-of-the-range strapless pad.

The Catch Foil works perfectly in Surf Foil, but it is not its only use. Its job is to kill it in Kitefoil.

These Boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP 2X for the best compromise weight / strength / performance on the market. The gain is significant since the entire Board is made of PVC sandwich. This hydrophobic material is 3 times stronger than traditional foam. It creates an ultra-resistant waterproof shell. The US Boxes are also placed in a high-density PVC block. On top of the Sandwich, the addition of a Biaxial Fiber greatly strengthens the Board: an exemplary resistance to bending and shocks. We then work with tinted resins to avoid as much as possible the paint which loads the Board unnecessarily. When resin tinted, your Board gains in nobility and durability.

The Catch Foil FSP 2X are equipped with top-of-the-range pads that provide maximum grip. These Boards are fitted with two US Boxes (the standard Box for Top Plate Foils on the market, 9cm between centers). So, you can mount all the Top Plate Foils in the world according to your wishes and your style. The multiple strap inserts allow all adjustments from beginner to Pro. It has a leash plug at the back to fix your leash for Surf Foil sessions. Nothing is missing.

Shape

  • Rocker : flat on the back half with a big kick to take off early, then nose up to soften the touches, and avoid pearling.
  • Rails : very thin and not very voluminous thanks to the chines : big angle grip without any touches.
  • Volume : relatively important especially on the largest sizes to keep a great accessibility.
  • Outline : difficult to make more compact 😉 the lines of the noses have been reworked to make the whole harmonious.
  • Tail : large diamond cut for immediate glide and control in the chop without losing speed in case of a touchdown.
  • Nose : diamond nose with a very marked V underneath, it makes it easier to manage the touchdowns in the chop even with a lot of angle.
  • Deck : Flat deck for control and precision steering.
  • Bottom : chined hull to limit the touchdowns.

Innovation is at the core of our Boards



Technology FSP 2X :

  • 3D Shape on modeling software.
  • Preshape by the numerical control for total reliability.
  • Shape control by traditional templates, finishing of the last mm 100% by hand.
  • 100% Epoxy Board and EPS Blank Foam: solid and lightweight.
  • Deck, hull and rails in PVC Vacuumed Sandwich: incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
  • Deck: integral PVC/Fiberglass Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Biaxial fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
  • Hull: integral PVC/Fiberglass Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz Biaxial fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcements on the sensitive areas.
  • Specific Foil reinforcements: high-density PVC block housing the two US Rail Boxes. Three layers of carbon cover the Boxes. Laminated PVC slats connect the reinforcement to the deck for maximum durability.
  • Rails: the PVC Sandwich structure completely covers the rails: increased structural strength, very good shock resistance.
  • Hot Coat integrated Tinted Resin: nobility of the process, weight reduction and solidity of the finish.
  • Matt custom finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and better glide.

The FSP 2X technology is easily repairable when new in case of a Ding. The PVC foam of the sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks.

This technology offers, at an affordable price, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of full Vacuum PVC Sandwich.

Léger ou costaud, idem : la gamme Catch propose toutes les solutions.

  • La 4’6 est super polyvalente et 100% perfs.
  • La 4’8 est aussi polyvalente, mais avec plus de confort.
  • La 5’0 est super confortable pour débuter, pour les costauds et pour le lightwind.

Dans tous les cas ce sont des shapes très compacts avec des réactivités proches.

 

Quel est le kite idéal ?

 La Catch Foil FSP 2X est fabuleuse avec une Strutless pour performer dans les vents inférieurs à 20nds. Cette aile est proche d’une aile de race dans ses aptitudes, mais avec la sécurité du boudin. Elle vole dans rien et cape de folie, tout en restant maniable. Idéale

Mais la Catch est aussi très copine avec la Unik qui apportera beaucoup de maniabilité pour enchainer les courbes par exemple.

 

Quel est le foil idéal ?

La Catch est top avec nos foils Allvator.

Le Freestyle, le Freewave et le Freeride selon la dominante de vos envies de navigation.

Le must est d’upgrader ce foil avec un mat Pro monobloc carbone 100cm.

Et pour les débutants, un mat plus court est facilitant. 65cm par exemple.

 

Quelles copines de quiver ? 

La Catch Foil FSP 2X a été testée de 4nds jusqu’à plus de 60nds de vent avec succès. Autant dire qu’elle n’a pas de limite. Mais le programme optimum du foil est de 6nds à 20nds pour la plupart de gens.

Le plus courant est de la compléter avec une planche de surf kite pour la plage 20nds et plus.

Evidemment, elle adore surfer en retirant les straps et lui montant un foil de surf. Et qui dit surf foil, dit surf tout court quand les vagues sont creuses. Vous n’aurez que l’embarras du choix.

 

Quels réglages ?

Les possibilités étendues de réglages des positions de footstraps sur la planche et du foil dans les rails US permettent d’accompagner les débutants dans leur progression en ridant très en avant du foil pour calmer le comportement de la planche au départ et de progressivement rapprocher ces deux points (appuis du foiler, et centre de poussée du foil) pour arriver au parfait équilibre de vol et performer une fois atteint le niveau technique suffisant.

Un débutant va avancer les straps à fond et reculer le foil à fond.

Et un Pro sera à fond derrière pour le strap arrière et au milieu devant. Tandis que son foil sera entre le centre et le tiers arrière des box.


For whom?

From Beginner to Pro, the Catch is for all levels.

Light or strong, ditto : The Catch range offers all the solutions.

 

What’s it for?

Almost everything you love on a Foil is great on the Catch Foil FSP 2X.

  • If you want to go fast : it loves it.
  • You want to fly early : it has high volumes.
  • You want to jump : it’s got a full PVC sandwich.
  • You want to surf : its shape is perfect.
  • You want to pull tricks : it’s made for it.

You want to start out in Foil : it will be ideal and will accompany you for a long time.

 

What size?

  • The 4’4 is the ultimate: light or race only.
  • The 4’6 is super versatile and 100% performance.
  • The 4’8 is also versatile, but with more comfort.
  • The 5’0 is super comfortable for beginners, for the strong and for the lightwind.

In all cases, they are very compact shapes with similar reactivity.

 

What is the ideal Kite?

The Catch Foil FSP 2X is fabulous with a Strutless to perform in winds below 20 knots. This Kite is close to a pedigree Kite in its abilities, but with the safety of the strut. It flies in nothing and has crazy upwind, yet still manageable. Ideal.

But the Catch is also very friendly with the Unik which will bring a lot of maneuverability to link curves for example.

 

What is the ideal Foil?

The Catch is great with our Allvator Foils.

Freestyle, Freewave and Freeride according to your navigating wishes.

The best is to upgrade this Foil with a 100cm Carbon Monobloc Pro Mast.

And for beginners, a shorter Mast is easier. 65cm for example.

 

Quiver Partners ?

The Catch Foil FSP 2X has been successfully tested from 4 knots up to 60 knots of wind. That means it has no limits. But the optimum range of the Foil is 6 to 20 knots for most people.

The most common is to complete it with a Kite Surfboard for the 20kts range and more.

Of course, she loves to surf by removing the straps and mounting a Surf Foil. And when we say Surf Foil, we mean real surfing when the waves are hollow. You’ll be spoiled for choice.

 

What settings?

The wide range of adjustment possibilities of the footstrap positions on the Board and the Foil in the US Rails allow you to accompany beginners in their progression by riding very much in front of the Foil to calm the Board’s behavior at the start and to progressively bring these two points  (Foiler stance and foil center of the pressure zones) closer together to achieve the perfect balance of flight and to perform once you have reached a sufficient technical level.

A beginner will move the straps all the way forward and the Foill all the way back.

And a Pro will be full back for the back strap and in the middle front. While his foil will be between the center and the back third of the boxes.
