Performance

The brand new BIC SUP TRACER have been conceived for Race and Touring, fitting neatly into the performance gap between the Race Pro and the 12’ 6 Wing. These boards are designed for paddlers looking for some top class glide and speed, but also top comfort and stability when the water cuts up. These new shapes been heavily drawn from the RACE PRO boards , fine­tuned by Eric Terrien & Chase Kosterlitz, Guaranteed great performance and easy handling in all kind of conditions.

 

The hull shape is a pronounced keel allied to a rounded overall shape helping to maximise speed ; the deep nose section helps avoid wallowing in heavier conditions. The board flattens out under the paddler’s ffet to help maximise stability. The tail section is mainly inspired by the 12’ 6 Wing. It finishes in a slight V shape to give maximum manoeuvrability. And its generous volume helps get the board surfing earlier and keeps it gliding as flat as possible to the water, even during sprints. It also gives excellent stability in all conditions including heavy wind and chop.

 

BIC SUP’s new TRACER series (“Touring-Racer”) excels as both a performance race board and an all-purpose touring board. Designed for riders who want speed and glide as well as comfort and stability, these new shapes are heavily influenced by the RACE-PRO series of high performance racing machines (fine-tuned by professional racers Eric Terrien and Chase Kosterlitz) and the award-winning Wing Touring series (lauded for their stability and ease of use). The use of a Carbon-Innegra weave fabric throughout the board results in high durability as well as light weight at a great price.

Technology

The construction has received particular attention, to create light weight, super­stiff boards delivering optimum glide, whilst retaining their resistance to knocks and bumps. The brand new BIC SUP TRACER is built around a low density (15kg/m3) EPS foam core. The layers are then built up around the core, with a hybrid weave of Innegra and 152gr/m2 Carbon fibre along the whole length of the board. The white Innegra fibre gives the boards their knock­ resistance whilst the Carbon guarantees their rigidity.

 

The whole structure is then wrapped in 180gr/m2 fibreglass, giving the boards a high quality finish that is also extra­resistant to small knocks and scratches. An additional fibreglass reinforcement on the concave section of the deck helps prevent any risk of collapse under the feet. The board is also layered with a transparent Epoxy UV­filter resin. The finish is completed by an all­over coating of transparent polyurethane varnish containing a UV filter, protecting the decoration and logos.
