The BIC Surfboards boards now come equipped with FCS fins which guarantee increased performance. The following points will help you understand better how a fin works in the wave.
The new fins are kept secured by lateral pressure screws which block the two tabs at the base of the fin. This ensures very good rigidity at the base of the fin and allows direct shifting of your weight from one foot to the other during turns. Simply put: less flex at the base of the fin = increased drive.
Glass Flex has been formulated to replicate the flex and memory properties of laminated fiberglass. Its advantages over other composite fin materials include stiffness, a more positive flex pattern (nice tip flex, little base flex) and remarkable flex memory. The precision of the injection molding process ensures the highest accuracy in geometry in each fin is produced.
Inside Foil Technology (IFT)
BIC Surf fins use the IFT technology. FCS Inside Foil Technology applies a sophisticated hydrodynamic foil to the inside face of the fin. The rounded leading edge combined with the concaved inside face increases the efficiency of water flow over the surface of the fin. This adds lift and reduces drag to optimize performance over a greater variety of conditions. The result is more options through increased hold and speed.
The FCS range suited to BIC Surf boards:
You can modify your surfboard's performance by changing the fins according to your style of surfing, your weight, and the kind of waves you surf on.
