FANATIC FALCON 112L 2013 TEST REVIEW
THE LOW DOWN
The Falcon is Fanatic’s PWA Production slalom racing board line with a CAD design shaped to deliver elite-level performance to pro racers and recreational sailors alike. For 2013 the range has evolved, with a new bottom shape, adjusted ‘volume flow’ (front thinned-out and tail straighter), increased deck recess and refined compact outline for improved control and comfort, especially over longer reaches and legs.
Tuttle fin box – no fin supplied
Biax Carbon sandwich light construction
Rounded nose, with straight sides to pintail
Widest in the tail
Recessed deck around mast track
Nose-to-tail vee underneath
Noticeably fast to accelerate, the Falcon required very little effort from the rider to get up-to-speed. From the straps it’s very comfortable underfoot with a riding position that just invites and encourages you to push it, offering perfect control at the top-end. The hull shape absorbs chop with ease and enables you to simply focus on going as fast as you dare push the limits. This board delivers a refined high-speed performance that’s easily accessible and undemanding on technical skill. Round the corners it’s a very versatile and easy-handling shape – with almost freeride-style carving manoeuvrability and body-positioning options – and holds speed well throughout turns, accelerating rapidly from each exit.
Fast, fun, easy and extremely comfortable, the Falcon delivers to all abilities of rider and is a forgiving race board that anyone can jump on and instantly enjoy blisteringly high levels of performance. In rough and challenging conditions there really isn’t much that can match the Fanatic for control, comfort and performance in a straight line or around the bends. The perfect choice for either rookie racers, or experienced sailors, looking for extra control on the race course.
