The new 2012 Falcon Speed is intended to revolutionize the world of speed sailing. Fanatic team has crafted the board using the latest technology and has fine tuned it to offer incredible speed and top control. The Falcon Speed is a powerful weapon and it is perfect for hardcore and pro riders. Every size of the Falcon Speed is tweaked to offer specific performance. The larger sizes pack a smart volume and work perfectly in marginal wind conditions. Smaller models also have a special volume distribution that keeps them very stable, but feature a specific bottom shape which provides outstanding control in both flat waters and small to medium waves. 

The narrower and compact shape of the board featuring a 70 degrees pintail provides perfect power release and reduces drag. This way the board can easily reach top speed and maintain it constant throughout the entire race.  A recessed deck provides better rig stability and makes the board steadier in chop, while the tucked rail assure better control at top speed. The Falcon Speed features a V to double concave bottom design, optimized for increased stability and perfect release.

A straight tail rocker significantly improves top speed and keeps the rider in complete control during maneuvers. The board also planes easily and runs upwind at incredible speeds. The Fanatic Falcon Speed is crafted using a Biax and Carbon Kevlar/Basalt Sandwich technology which assures the perfect weight to strength ratio. The board offers top freerace performance when it is used with 4.0 up to 7.5 square meters sails, depending on size.
