THE MISSION: To combine state of the art Formula 1 and nanotechnology to the form, function, and performance enhancement of longboarding as a sport. By pushing the envelope on gravity propulsion we are redefining what’s possible through the careful application of technology, alternative materials and physics.
The hand-built, "Mach1 prototype" presented here is constructed of seven layers of F1 grade pre-preg carbon fiber over an Airex and Ash core. Makrolon reinforced nose and tail sections for high velocity impact resistance.
--The top of the deck features two separate grades of grip engineered for maximum control. The front grip is less coarse and permits shifting on the front foot while the rear grip is made from impervious Corundum - a synthetic sapphire crystal second only to diamond as the world’s hardest mineral.
--The Airex core features a center channel with a carbon fiber inlay for unmatched torsional rigidity and reduced drag.
NOTES FROM THE DESIGNER: ALEX LUXAT SHAPE FEATURES: › cutouts for additional wheel clearance in tight turns?› tapering down to the last third of the platform to keep the braking foot closer to the board (more stability in foot-brakes) › flares at the end of the platform give a tactile feedback in foot-brakes (to avoid getting caught in the rear wheel)?› in toeside turns the foot locks into the “pocket” in front of the flare (the board being narrower at this point also avoids oversteering)?› 1295 grams total gripped weight CONCAVE FEATURES: › ergonomically designed radius into straight angles?› the concave geometry follows the anatomy of the foot - deep enough to lock you in, allowing for lots of leverage in turns without overstretching the foot arches?› flat middle section which adds stability in the tuck position and on straights
wefunk/Stealth Division will launch the Mach1 as a full production deck Spring 2012.
