The Compact has a stepped hip area to maintain width further forwards and has more curve in the nose area to help the board to “hook” around towards the end of the top turn as you bury the rail of the board
The width on 5’8 Compact is comparable to the 5’11 Converse in the mid-point but the Compact has a slightly narrower tail. The narrower tail helps control in higher wind or at higher speed.
The narrower tail can also be buried more easily in the top turn, which also compensates for the flatter tail rocker.
The Active Bamboo is constructed using Entropy Super Sap Resin Systems, which reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies. This resin system replaces petroleum-based raw materials with renewable plant-based materials. The raw materials going into Entropy Resins are co-products or waste products of industrial processes, which do not compete with food sources or displace food-based agriculture.
The Flytech construction combines a lightweight EPS core with a sandwich hi-density standing area, for an excellent combination of strength and reduced weight. Due to the lightweight core, the Flytech construction makes use of additional layers of glass fiber, resulting in an extremely durable outside skin ideal for everyday riding.
