The hours and man power that went into the Admiral Project are uncountable. All to achieve one goal: A state of the art high-tech board. The Admiral is a revolutionary performance freeride board made for the harshest conditions. It has a V-shaped bottom with a double concave delivering an extraordinary surf like riding experience.
double edge provides the perfect grip for a smooth ride with less spray even in the worst chop and winds.
Thanks to our innovative top and bottom construction, completely made out of our exclusive Carbon Basalt Compound, the board is extremely light while delivering ultimate board control.
The integrated hexpads and the 3D torsion / shock-absorber on the topside (center and tips) provide an unmatched comfort, while the 3-stage thickness
of the board gives the Admiral an incredible flex while reducing its weight even further.
Thanks to the size specific flex patterns built with our exclusive Vari Flex technology and the 3-stage rail rocker, the board has pop that is just insane.
The Admiral is the lightest, most comfortable performance board there is - ride it and rule the sea! Designer s Vision
The Admiral is the most innovative board we ever build, combining our exclusive Double Edge with the extraordinary performance of the material Carbon Basalt Compound, which was developed for the Russian space program.
The Admiral line of boards feature some pretty wild tech in terms of material and the Rocker Flex Adjuster device. How does this tech transfer to riding styles and how will riders choose between the two the Admiral board line
is split into the Admiral and the Admiral Aramid Limited. The Aramid is basically the essence of the Admiral and will be launched at the end of 2014.
Both boards are constructed with high tech materials: The Admiral is built with the super light Carbon® Basalt compound which was developed by the russian space program.
For the Admiral Aramid Ltd we use a Kevlar® Aramid fiber woven into red carbon. These materials deliver an outstanding comfort and performance due to their light weight and flex characteristics.
Together with the bottom v-shape and the double edge rail, the Admiral is at the top of its class when it comes to high-end freeride boards.
The Rocker Flex Adjuster is a separate project: A device which can be used to adjust the rocker and the flex of a board on the go.
It works with most of the Best 2015 board range, though only the flex pattern of the Admiral Aramid Ltd is especially designed for the device.
All you need to do then is flip the switch to increase the rocker and reduce the negative flex of the board. It uses the same ratcheting system that snowboard bindings use.
More rocker and less flex equals more pop, higher jumps, better carving and turning. With the touch of a button, the board goes back to its original shape.
The rocker decreases and the flex pattern becomes softer. As a result the upwind ability increases, the riding comfort in choppy upwind courses is higher and also the low end performance of the board is boosted.
We like to think of it like changing the shock settings on a high performance car.
