Description

Function

The Lethal kiteboard is our 100% radical sideshore shape.

Introduction

The Lethal is THE kiteboard for going big in good conditions. With its point nose and its round tail, it’s  100% shortboard oriented for extreme carving.

In the surf, it’s custom made for sideshore conditions. It works well in hollow waves thanks to its precise drive. It will give you the confidence you need for throwing down the most radical of moves and for projecting yourself up the sweetest wave faces in serenity.

It offers perfect pivot and incredible rail to rail. When you transfer your stance back and forth in the curve, you can feel all the magic of the round tail, which doesn’t limit this radicalism. The Lethal dives in the curve, but it also knows how to do snappy turns and throw big sprays +++.

To get to the point: it’s the board for the sickest turns!

Shape

The outline is 100% shortboard with an ultra manoeuvrable tail and a thin point nose so it doesn’t get caught in the turns, barrels and tricks. The shape of the board is a set of very soft curves for a progressive action triggering. You enter the curves and increase the pressure at will, without losing the rail. It’s very healthy behavior that allows you to take advantage of this radical board.

The round tail provides ultra progressive rail to rail and the best possible handling. The portion of rail submerged in the curve is reduced as you push with the rear foot. So it’s up to you to define the radicality of your turns !!!

The point nose is so minimalist that you won’t ever think about it.

The very heavy rocker is dedicated to handling. The slightest pressure on the tail releases the nose to turn even shorter, do a snap and throw some spray.

The work on the hull is important to combine a strong grip on the edges and handling in the surf. We go from a very big concave in the center to a double concave at the tail which directs the board in addition to the fins. And we end with a double concave in V behind the central fin to optimize the rail to rail tilt without losing grip in the curve.

Finally the volume is reduced to the strict minimum to have an ultra healthy board that does not bounce at the bottom, it’s very discreet and gives particularly effective thin rails.

 

Equipments

The LETHAL KITE FSP 2X are equipped with a high-end pad for maximum grip.

These boards are equipped with three FCS II boxes to insert and remove your favorite fins without tools.

The multiple straps inserts allow all adjustments from beginner to Pro.

You can also use your board for surfing, a leash plug will allow you to never lose it. Nothing is missing.

Construction

These boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP 2X for the best weight / strength / performance compromise on the market. The gain is significant since on average 15% lighter than the 2019 FSPs.

The addition of a biaxial fibre reinforces the board,  so no concession has been made on the exemplary solidity of FSPs, on the contrary.

The PVC sandwich forms a 3mm hydrophobic shell over the entire board. This PVC sandwich offers the best dynamism while preserving strength, at an incredible weight.

It is by designing a new finishing technique, as close as possible to our prototypes made in our French factory, that we have succeeded in saving weight. We work with tinted resins to avoid as much as possible the paint that loads the board unnecessarily. Paint integrated into the resin, your board is enhanced with nobility and durability.

At GONG our boards are the highest quality. Our low prices can only be explained by our direct sales. If by misfortune you break them, they can be repaired from A to Z with the components we keep in stock for your favourite repairer.

Instructions

Innovation is at the core of our products


FSP 2X Kitesurfing Technology:

  • 3D Shape on modeling software.
  • Preshapsd with numerical control for total reliability.
  • Shape control by traditional templates, finishing up to the last mm 100% by hand.
  • 100% Epoxy board and EPS foam blank : solid and light.
  • 5mm wooden stringer to limit the risk of breakage.
  • Deck, hull and rails in vacuum-assisted PVC sandwich: incomparable solidity and incredible dynamism.
  • Deck: Full PVC/fiberglass sandwich composed of a core of high density PVC foam and one layer of 6oz fiberglass, one layer of 6oz biaxial fiberglass and one layer of 4oz fiberglass, reinforcement with biaxial fiberglass on the foot area.
  • Hull: Full PVC/Fiberglass sandwich composed of a high density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass, one layer of 6oz Biaxial fiberglass, and fiberglass reinforcements on the sensitive areas such as the fin boxes.
  • Rails: the PVC sandwich structure completely covers the rails: increased structural strength, incredible impact resistance (heel or knee impacts).
  • Tinted Resin hot coat: nobility within the process, weight saving and solidity of the finish.
  • Matt “custom finish”, hand-made, for weight saving and better glide.

The FSP 2X technology is easily repairable to new in case of dings. The PVC foam of the sandwich is waterproof and avoids water intake from everyday shocks. The EPS foam blank does not deteriorate because it’s well protected from water. And repairs have a much larger support to lean on and blend seamlessly with the surrounding material.

This technology offers, at an affordable price, the incomparable solidity/lightness ratio of the vacuum-assisted full PVC sandwich.

 

Buying guide

whom ?

From intermediate riders to pros, a solid experience is needed to get the best out of the Lethal. It’s not the best board for heading upwind, but it’s the one that will throw down the biggest truns!!!

The intermediate rider will appreciate its radical behaviour in the waves, in all simplicity.

The pro will love her pure surfing DNA. In the beautiful side shore waves, the Lethal kiteboard is amazing.

What is it for ?

Surfing in sideshore conditions, this is the program of the Lethal kiteboard.

What size ?

Ideal conditions:

Ideal wave size: from average to big waves.

Power: at its best in hollow waves !

Type: It can handle everything, even the choppy playing fields.

Ideal conditions ?

Ideal wave size: from average to big waves.

Power: at its best in hollow waves !

Type: It can handle everything, even the choppy playing fields.

What’s the ideal kite ?

The Lethal kiteboard will work wonderfully with a Freewave.

Quiver partners ?

You can complete the low range with a Matata kiteboard or a Catch Foil when the wind is really light.

When the wind is lighter and the waves softer, an Alu kiteboard will give you more mobility on the water and more power to throw down big moves.

In light conditions, a Matata will be a great option for freeriding or surfing in mushy waves.

And in freestyle a Catch kiteboard or a Fatal would be very complementary.

Which settings ?

The Lethal kiteboard is mounted in Tri-fin with FCSII boxes. You are free to assemble the set of fins of your choice. All FCSII fin models are available on our website.

Strapped or strapless ?

Riding strapless is sexy because you feel free. You’ll find the sensations of surfing and the mobility on the board to play with the waves. It’s a very pure style of riding but difficult to master.

With the straps, you are sure that your board will stay hooked to your feet, even in the most committed aerial maneuvers. You will have a lot more control and performance will be a step above.

It’s up to you to choose between feeling and performances. Put your straps in the central position (3rd hole) for the front, and the same goes for the rear strap.

If you want to be able to remove the rear foot for transitions and surfing, place the rear strap on the first hole.

 

Included equipments

  • 3 FCS II Glass Flex Fins for Tri fin mounting.
  • 2 lateral boxes and 1 central box FCS II, high resistance permitting trifin mounting.
  • Deck Pad 5 mm grooved for adherence and comfort. Factory installed.​
  • Inserts, screws and washers included for setting 2 in-line straps (straps not included).
  • Leash plug Concrete Fixed on the tail to never lose your board.
  • Automatic depressurization screw

Shipping

Availability:

The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.

These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.

We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.

If it’s available online: it’s available 😉

 

Pre-order:

Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.

Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.

The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.

However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.

As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.

It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.

We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.

 

Delays:

The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.

We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.

Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.

We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.

 

Shipping Fees: 

Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.

The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.

For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.

 

Any questions:

We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.

Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.

In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting 😉

We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible 😉

 

Eco-responsible packaging:

Preserving the environment is a top priority. That’s why we are doing everything possible to reduce our environmental footprint.

The first thing is to sell quality products that will last, be repairable and will please you for a long time.

The second thing is to sell for less. Most of the pollution coming from a Board is in its use (the km driven to use it) and in the countless environmental damages you have to do to pay for it. Each euro spent is a sum of damage related to your life quite simply: eating, working hard etc… By reducing the price of our products, we significantly reduce your ecological footprint on this item.

For our shipments we use:

  • Flexi-Hex: ecological packaging of very high resistance.
  • Paper Craft Scotch Tape.
  • Final packaging made of high-end cardboard.

All this for:

  • Reusable and recyclable packaging.
  • An almost total reduction of single-use plastic.
  • Maximum protection and impact resistance thanks to the innovative design of Flexi-Hex honeycomb (35mm thick).

 

Tracking of your parcels :

The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.

If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.

 

Delivery:

We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.

We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.

For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.

For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.

Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.

 

Reception of your Board:

Upon delivery, simply open and inspect the condition of your Board in the presence of the carrier. A complete email explaining the procedure to follow will be sent to you when your order is shipped.

In spite of our requirements and all the care we take in packaging and protecting your Board, transportation hazards may occur. Even if it concerns less than 2% of everything we ship around the world, a Board can suffer a more or less important transportation shock.

But in any case, don’t worry, just refuse it, and a new Board will be shipped back to you.

 

Returns:

You can choose to return your products if:

  • You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
  • You want to change an item.
  • You have refused your package.

 

For each situation, contact us by our contact form to help you.

3 reviews for GONG KITEBOARD LETHAL FSP 2X

  1. PAVY Jean-Pierre

    Apres 3 sessions ( entre 10 et 30 Noeuds) avec la nouvelle LETHAL 5’9 2021, voici mes impressions : un tres beau surf leger et rigide, qui parait costaud avec sa latte centrale, et qui marche dans toutes les conditions, et pas seulement en vent side-shore !
    D’abord, j’ai changé les 2 ailerons latéraux d’origine pour des fibres plus rigides de même taille : démarrage au planning plus efficace et contrôle dans les turn au millimètre . Avec mon poids de 84 kg, on peut ainsi naviguer dès 10-12 Nd de vent, faire plus de cap, et partir du bord bien plus facilement si le vent est on-shore. Je navigue en strap pour plus de tenu et de radicalité, et je les règle tout à l’arrière pour l’arrière, et à l’avant-dernier trou à l’avant. ça facilite le contrôle et permet plus de radicalité au surf, tout en permettant de soulager la planche pour un démarrage au planning plus précoce .
    Pour en revenir aux sensations, cette planche peut tout faire, en fait, et pas que dans des conditions side-shore ! une vraie bonne surprise !
    Elle passe tres bien dans le clapot, accélère fort, et tourne dans un mouchoir… Vous pouvez faire vos jibes et bottom-turn coucher à l’horizontale sans aucun risque de décrocher ! en surf, vos bottom-turn se conduiront sur le bout des pieds, tres précise, et vous pourrez envoyer du spray sur vos rollers bien verticaux; bref un régal !
    Si le vent monte vraiment, il suffit de diminuer la taille des ailerons latéraux, ou de mettre des moins rigides pour avoir l’impression d’avoir une board plus petite, toujours bien contrôlable !
    Les passage de mousse son vraiment easy sans aucun ralentissement de la planche.
    Quand aux sauts, ce qui n’est pas conseillé avec un surf, mais si vous avez envie de vous satelliser, c’est un avion qui envoie bien haut, toujours contrôlable en l’air, permettant des réceptions tres douces.
    Bref, vous l’aurez compris, cette LETHAL 5’9 est un régal dans toutes les conditions, et si vous n’avez qu’une board à emporter, ne réfléchissez pas, c’est celle-ci ! avec un mini quiver d’ailerons, vous pourrez sortir dans toutes les conditions, de 10 à 40 nd, voir plus… et quelque soit la taille des vagues et l’orientation du vent !
    Encore merci à GONG pour avoir sorti ce jouet incroyable encore une fois.

  2. Stephane

    Ma 5’9 est enfin arrivée!! Super emballage sans risque de casse au déballage. Franchement la couleur mate est très sympa de l’avis de tous et donne mieux que sur le site Web. La finition n’a aucun défaut. Il ne restait plus qu’à l’essayer.
    Deux sessions dans des conditions onshore pour 2 mètres de vagues, la première en 10 m² et la deuxième en 8 m². Mon gabarit est de 176 cm pour 72 kg et je ne fais pas de freestyle.
    Très bonne première impression (et des planches de surf j’en ai essayé beaucoup).
    Très bon départ au planning. On se sent tout de suite à l’aise malgré ses 23 litres. Elle reste facile d’accès. Le passage de mousse est facile, le pad tient bien aux pieds sans trop coller. La stabilité latérale est très bonne. Elle répond très bien au moindre appui, courbe longue ou serrée, tout passe !


    My 5’9 is finally here !! Super packaging without risk of breakage when unpacking. Frankly the matte color is very cool in everyone’s opinion and looks better than on the website. The finish is flawless. All that was left was to try it out.
    Two sessions in onshore conditions for 2 meters of waves, the first in 10 m² and the second in 8 m². My size is 176 cm for 72 kg and I do not do freestyle.
    Very good first impression (and I’ve tried a lot of surfboards).
    Very good start to the planning. You immediately feel at ease despite its 23 liters. It remains easy to access. The foam passage is easy, the pad holds well to the feet without sticking too much. The lateral stability is very good. It responds very well to the slightest pressure, long or tight curve, it can handle everything!

  3. Jon Facey

    What a fantastic weapon. Can not fault the quality build of the Lethal FSP 2X and the way is handles in the waves. The quality is so good, and the weight of the board just right, getting the balance weight/build perfect. Super happy and highly recommended.
