The new Fusion 2 LW from CORE, Always the right choice for your next epic session. Wind conditions don’t matter when you‘re riding the Fusion 2 LW, the ultimate all style twin tip. Your weapon of choice to deliver maximum stoke on those marginal wind days.
You will find each board in the LW range has its own unique personality. The smaller LW is known for its cat like agility and the larger LW for its mad swagger. Rest assured, COREs innovative boards will perform beyond your expectations and just maybe, take you to nirvana with technology that incorporates a decade’s worth of board building expertise from Europe’s leading custom board manufacturer, Carved.de. Trust CORE to engineer pure, light wind excitement.
Fusion 2 LW Medium (147x44cm):
Unbelievably agile and light on its feet. The 147 can be described as a hybrid with class leading light wind handling and the freestyle capability of its smaller brothers.
Fusion 2 LW Large (152x46cm):
The ultimate early planer and light wind cruiser. COREs biggest Fusion 2 sports a re-engineered concave board outline (like a snowboard). Concave sidecut rails improve upwind tacks by forcing the board to naturally ride deeper thereby lengthening rail contact with the water. Wider tips promote early planing and keep you going through the lulls. The sidecut Fusion 2 LW feels smaller so it has the potential to handle more wind than you would normally expect. You can always depend on the Double Concave V-Keel to keep you under control if the winds picks up.
Light weight, CNC milled, wood core. The laminated, long grained Paulownia wood core give these boards dimensional stability, decay resistance and a lightweight yet distinctively powerful character. Exclusive to CORE, their proprietary 30° Biaxial carbon fibre weave optimizes board torsion and dynamic longitudinal flex. The build process also requires less resin thereby reducing swing weight. So light in fact, you will think you are riding a much smaller board.
It is critical to control lateral and longitudinal forces in big boards like the LW edition. Examine the Fusion LW’s surface contours. Near the footpads, the surface is milled in the shape of a diamond. This shape directs torsional forces to the edges where you want them for a perfect balance between flex and rigidity.
More control. Bigger stoke. The new tip profile produces super clean carving characteristics and powerfully controlled take-offs. The outside edge runs longer and straighter to a bevelled corner. A double concave hull continues within the extended progressive channels and blends perfectly into the tips. The channels engage during power edging effectively increasing lateral resistance for more control. And when not engaged, the board glides effortlessly through the lulls.
The Hydrodynamic Bottom Contour; Optimized fluid dynamics balance the following two hull design principles utilized in the Fusion 2. The features that most define the Fusion’s character and energy are:
V-shaped Keel. Inspired by the legendary handling of deep V powerboats in rough waters, CORE integrates a V-shaped keel along the entire length of the board to penetrate chop and smooth your ride. The V ensures early planing, superb agility and softer landings.
Double concave bottom. Always in control. The double concave V hull increases hydrodynamic grip at any board angle to rip tighter, butter smooth turns. Effortless, slashy turns that will be imprinted into your memory forever.
CORE Union Pro Footpads/Straps:
How you connect with your board has a big impact on your stoke factor. Are your straps sloppy? Or do they pinch? Do they provide sufficient cushioning and support on those hard landings? With this in mind, CORE engineered new straps and pads for the new Fusion 2.
The orthotic EVA footpads with their “toe grabber” 3D surface will hold your feet securely even on those off balance landings. With a base plate that can accommodate nine different stances and three pad insert options CORE is sure you will find the perfect setup for your riding style.
The dual strap design features effortless pitch, longitudinal and height adjustments to support your foot perfectly. The strap interior is lined with padded neoprene while protecting the exterior with durable synthetic leather.
CORE 48mm G10 Fins:
A perfect balance between tracking and freestyling. The impact resistant, G10 fibreglass fins have a new trailing edge design for even more control and tracking stability. Although a little smaller than last year, CORE kept that lively feel of the original intact.
