TO THE CORE.
Although stunning on the surface, the real beauty remains hidden below. The unique Cartan® carbon unibody construction is a masterstroke in production technology.
Under the exclusive Cartan carbon fiber, you will find a heart of solid, CNC milled, Paulownia wood. Known by boat builders as the finest nautical wood available, it resists decay and has superb flex characteristics.
Carved uses only the finest hand selected, marine grade, Paulownia wood. It’s long fibers and a unique directional adhesive application give the wood core its strength, reflexivity, and dynamic pop.
Carved Customs mills its wood cores to an accuracy of less than a thou. Perfection takes time and after 15 years of board building success, Carved Customs knows a few things about making precision boards.
The distinctive and highly effective Imperator Ellipse continues in the 6th generation. The Ellipse channels forces to the fins and edges when warranted and absorbs the rest. For more pop and comfort.
When it comes explosive pop, the Imperator 6 is far ahead of the pack. The power generated by the Ellipse tips is undeniable and grin inducing.
The double concave hull between the straps transitions to a mono concave on each tip. It might be harder for us to build but it’s worth the effort in the end.
The sunny Baltic island of Fehmarn, a mecca for kite boarders, has been the home of Carved Customs since 2001. No Imperator leaves this German island without a nod from its master craftsmen.
Custom fins for every board. Because every board is custom. Our fins are so finely tuned to each board that we could not in good conscience share fins. Razor G10 fins. For fun or freestyle.
The slender, sharp-edged fins are manufactured with high quality, triple layer G10 composites.
FOR A BETTER FIT.
For the ultimate in strap adjustability even “on the fly” there is only one choice. The new Ultra pads & straps system features new fingertip control with a snowboard inspired tongue and click-buckle system.
