FLUID X - VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM Fluid X was born from the ski and snowboard industry. It made sense to look toward progressive snowsports technology to provide state of the art dampening control to reduce vibration and create a clean and smooth feel throughout all our high performance boards. Fluid X also provides an anti-torsion property that runs from tip to tail and its visco-elastic stringer improves the dynamic behavior of the core construction that allows more flex, more response and the smoothest feel unlike anything youve experienced on a kite surfboard. With Fluid X, we finally managed to give our boards a polyester feel with the durability of an epoxy lay up.
