Firewire: FST Technology

March 27, 2019 1 min read

About Firewire FST Technology: FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both the top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than a traditional PU surfboard. The Parabolic Balsa Rail features a band of 12mm thick balsa wood, constructed from 3 x 4mm strips, which not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory created by the balsa rails ensures that FST boards maintain their lively feel indefinitely. The aerospace deck skin works in conjunction with the Parabolic Balsa Rail to optimize the flex pattern, while also creating tremendous compression strength that minimizes denting and dings throughout the lifespan of the board.
