NEXT LEVEL CARBON.
Cartan 2, as it’s called, combines untwisted, unidirectional carbon fiber strands with minimal epoxy binders into a thin, flat, 30° scrim matching the exact board size. The evenly distributed, very straight fibers result in a composite laminate with a lighter, more uniform microstructure than those produced using conventional woven-fabric pre-pregs. The Imperator’s improved filament-to-filament load transfer results in an incredibly energetic Gen7 that’s 100g lighter.
The symphonic performance of Paulownia, Cartan 2, and 20 years of development delivers its signature ride. Expect the smoothest carves, the highest torsional stability, and incredible reflexivity even in massive chop. Allround comfort in all conditions and nothing but.
ALWAYS ON TRACK.
The distinctive deep-vee keel keeps the Imperator 7 confidently on course – especially in chop and strong winds. Hand-finished rails feature slightly sharper, drag-reducing, tucked under rail profile.
The double concave Vee cuts through the roughest chop and delivers incredible grip and poise. Transitioning the double concaves into mono concave tips improves takeoff.
TENSION IN EVERY FIBER.
The Cartan 2 carbon unibody envelopes a wood core resulting in perfect power flows between the upper and lower deck. Be amazed at the Imperator’s incredible ability to store and release your energy on demand.
A work of art hides under the exclusive carbon fiber jacket. The finest hand-selected, Paulownia wood is finely milled with a state-of-the-art CNC milling machine. Its exceptionally light, long fibers give the Imperator dimensional stability and its signature character.
