We’re always happy when some new innovative technologies and materials hit the market as it’s making our hardware and sport progress and improve our experience in the water somehow. QCD has some new technology available, called Skintec™, it’s an additional layer thermo sealed to the core of the board that helps with flex property on the whole core and entire surface of the board. The Skintec™ can be used with or without stringer(s) as Todd Quigley told us. Read more below in the press release from QCD.
The QCD SKINTEC Ltd features a new skin technology developed for high performance riding through pressure absorption and energy dispersion. Skintec™ is the most advanced energy transfer layer ever produced, designed to reduce impact compression by providing protection to the cores cell structure and integrity.
QCD owner and head shaper, Todd Quiqley said of his newly designed SKINTEC LTD model, “The Skintec™ layer is thermo-fused to the core, creating increased strength, drive, and recoil over the boards entire surface area while allowing the board to flex more evenly from nose to tail and rail to rail. The increased strength has also allowed me to design this model thinner than my standard stock line which provides edge control and off the bottom speed without losing stiffness and inner core balance”.
The SKINTEC Ltd has been produced in both PP and EFC Red cores. Only 60 boards have been manufactured in total, with each board being individually numbered on a sticker on the front of the board.
