The Absolute started with a simple idea: What would happen if we set out to create a high-end performance twintip with no design limitations or cost restrictions? The board needed to be lightweight, fast, lively, and nimble. Simultaneously, we wanted a smooth ride with explosive pop, easy upwind tracking, and grip-and-rip style turning. We wanted the board to be made of the highest performing materials available, so we didn’t set any specific material or construction limits. After hours of testing and countless prototypes, we finally found the right balance of flex, durability, performance, and construction.
136 X 41.7 – Recommended Rider Weight: 55– 75 kg / 121 – 165 lbs
140 X 42.5– Recommended Rider Weight: Greater than 75 kg / 165 lbs
The Absolute features a precision CNC shaped full wood core, double concave “v-hull” bottom shape, and Textreme carbon top and bottom sheets. The engineered space-age carbon weave provides a stiff, springy flex while helping the board remain extremely lightweight. While you are blasting through the chop or soaring over your friend, you’ll be sure to turn heads with the Textreme carbon checkered pattern. To top it off, we’ve released a limited-edition Pro Pad in a matching color way that can be paired with this board to complete the cohesive look. The combination of its high-tech carbon construction, efficient rocker line, and playful outline make the Absolute a perfect choice for energetic free-riders and explosive freestylers alike. We spared nothing in the creation of the Absolute and the result is the lightest weight twin tip that Liquid Force Kiteboarding has ever made.
|Core||A divinycell-wood core with CNC construction, offering precise shape control.|
|Weight||136cm is 5.2 lbs or 2.35 kg. 140cm is 5.5 lbs or 2.49 kg. There is an acceptable variance of +/- 5% per board.|
|Inserts||M6 inline inserts for ultimate strength and multiple stance options.|
|Outline||Forgiving elliptical outline drives through turns, while the narrower tip and tail provide more bite and clean release from the water.|
|Bottom Shape||V-hull bottom shape that’s designed to offer smooth landings, aggressive carves, and easy upwind tracking.|
|3-D Shaping||3-D top sheet contours that provide stiffness where necessary and flex where you want it.|
|Carbon||Textreme carbon top and bottom sheets add board stiffness while simultaneously dampening chop vibration. This lightweight engineered carbon material increases the desirable flex characteristics of the Absolute while drastically reducing its overall board weight.|
|Liquid Rail||Liquid Force’s exclusive Liquid Rail, the most durable sidewall construction av|
