With decades of experience in windsurf and surfboard manufacturing BIC Sport is a pioneer of thermoformed composite construction technology. Over the past few years we've refined the ideal composite lay-up for SUP, with ACE-TEC as the result. Three sizes suit the needs of experienced riders and newbies alike with a unique combination of durability, light weight and performance shapes. All ACE-TEC boards come standard with the FCS fin system, a premium diamond groove EVA deck pad, ergo-grip carry handle and integrated rail guard.
The Wind version of the 10'6'' ACE-TEC is designed as an all-round performer for riders up to 180lbs/80kg and as a performance surf SUP for riders up to 220lbs/100kg.
It features even volume distribution, confidence-inspiring width and a refined rocker profile for surf performance as well as flatwater glide. This is a highly versatile SUP suitable for a wide range of conditions, which comes with a mastfoot box so that a rig can be mounted. It's then an ideal board for sailing in light to moderate winds on flatwater or in waves.
ACE TEC is a light composite that gives the board excellent stiffness and the best of glide on the water, at an affordable price. This technology which is exclusive to BIC Sport allows for the original shape to be reproduced faithfully on all production boards. ACE TEC provides a huge advantage over polyester and epoxy sandwich: it is its excellent resistance to shocks, provided by its fine coating skin made out of polymer materials that protect it. A shock against a rock will leave just the slightest of marks on the skin of an ACE-TEC SUP board, whereas it would certainly leave a hole in a polyester or epoxy sandwich board.
