Great board. Fast, great upwind and stunning in and on the waves.
Simmer Style Quantum 2012
The new Simmer Style boards are ready to change the way riders feel and perform out on the waves. All three board models are engineered using a special technology which makes them extremely versatile and reliable. The Quantum board is intended to excel in real world wave conditions. The Quantum is a very agile and mobile board which feels loose and it is able to tackle any wave without any effort. The Quantum features a hydrodynamic outline which assures a fast and fluid drive. Although it does not pack extra volume it is able to run fine in lighter winds and can support a larger sail without problems. The wider profile, combined with a wider tail stabilizes the board in high waves and assures a powerful release and better control.
The board is optimized to work with multiple fin setups. When used with Mission front fins and Icon rear fins it offer better grip, better control and an extra boost for new school maneuvers. When used with Mission rear fins or with a full Blacktip fin setup, it feels looser. Simmer Style has used a medium rocker line to make sure that the Quantum can accelerate quickly and reach a nice top speed. A single concave bottom shape makes the board very agile and dynamic. Double concaves used in the single concave provide extra grip and make the board steadier at highs speed. Less tuck in the rail improves the overall performance in marginal winds and assures a sharper release.
The Simmer Style Quantum uses a special strap position. The straps are positioned further back to make the board snappier and provide better control during extreme maneuvers. The Simmer Style Quantum is built using an innovative Carbon X structure which generates better flex in the bottom turn and makes the board feel livelier and also absorbs the shock waves to assure a comfortable drive.
