Just about anything is possible on your new Fusion 3, the Swiss Army® knife of kiteboards. New riders will kite longer than ever with the board’s session-extending deep V hull. Lucky freestylers in spots like Squamish’s hallowed Spit will find even more pop with the improved hull channels. And a few brave souls will harness the Fusion’s Cartan carbon fiber construction and Hood River’s legendary summer winds to challenge another WOO record. Regardless of your skill or adventure, the new Fusion 3 delivers next-level awesomeness.
Core's latest Fusion leverages a decade’s worth of board building expertise from Carved Customs -Europe’s leading custom board manufacturer- and knowhow from their latest masterpiece, the Imperator 6. The 3rd generation is measurably lighter and features a new multi-channel hull, progressive rails, a deeper rocker line, and slightly wider tips. Our engineers also invested considerable effort fine tuning the CNC milled Paulownia wood core, the backbone of the Fusion’s unmistakable, smooth riding, energetic feel. And no Fusion 3 is complete without our new and fabulous Union Pro 2 or Comfort pads and straps. Add a pair now before you forget!
Cartan Carbon – Core's Exclusive Hi-Performance Carbon Fibre: Core's proprietary 30° biaxial carbon fiber roving optimizes torsion and longitudinal flex. 30° biaxial carbon fiber has more flex along the length the board and less flex toe-to-heal. Cartan also needs less resin to cure which saves considerable weight. This weave means bigger pop, way softer landings, and better durability.
New: Vario Rails – Precise Flex and Unreal Energy: The Fusion 3 sports a new variable rail thickness. 9mm thick rails around the middle of the board reduce to 3mm on the tips. Just imagine the kinetic energy you’ll generate with these new rails!
Powerfully Light, Marine Grade, Paulownia Wood is the heart of every Fusion 3: The laminated, long-grained wood core gives Core's boards dimensional stability, decay resistance, and a lightweight yet distinctively powerful character. They extended the Paulownia further towards the board edges and now CNC mill both top and bottom. The larger wood core reduces board weight and improves flex memory.
New: Vee Rocker - more rocker underfoot and less rocker towards tips: The Fusion 3’s new rocker is more pronounced under your feet and progressively reduces towards the tips. This knowhow borrows from the Imperator 6 - Carved Custom’s latest masterpiece.
Improved: 3D Wood Core – Less weight. Better flex Memory: Powerfully light, marine grade, Paulownia wood is the heart of every Fusion 3. The laminated, long-grained wood core gives our boards dimensional stability, decay resistance, and a lightweight yet distinctively powerful character. We extended the Paulownia further towards the board edges and now CNC mill both top and bottom. The larger wood core reduces board weight and improves flex memory.
New: Deeper V-Shaped Keel - for a smoother ride: The full-length V-shaped keel cuts through even the roughest chop saving your knees for the fun stuff. Extend your sesh with the new Fusion 3.
New: Multi-Channels – for unbelievable handling: The channels worked so well on the Fusion 2 Core added a center and edge channels to the new board. The center channel follows the length of the board and provides extra depth for the V-Keel. In addition to the center channel, they also added two ¾ length outer channels that further improve edging. Freestylers can load their edges more than ever. And freeriders will notice how well the Fusion 3 tracks upwind.
Double Concave - For More Grip n the Corners. The new board retains the double concave design that delivers fantastic grip when carving those beautiful gybes.
