The G5 CORE and Carbon Fiber Construction are the basis for all BROKITE Kiteboards. This combination of materials, construction technique and science is what makes BROKITE boards unlike anything else on the market today. Each board is handmade and built from scratch because it’s the only way we have found to produce the best possible kiteboard. Why would we want to ride anything else?
All BROKITE boards are based on a PVC core sliced into five strips. We call this the G5 CORE. The G5 CORE in combination with Carbon Fiber wraps gives BROKITE boards a unique combination of strength, flexibility and light-weight for kiteboarding control and reponsiveness.
The G5 CORE starts with a 1/4 inch sheet of high density foam which is cut into 5 longitudinal sections.
Then, each section is wrapped with high modulus, 11.5 oz. Carbon Fiber fabric and set into the mold ready for an application of epoxy. This is the basis of the BROKITE G5 CORE. This process is critical to achieve the characteristics of a high performance custom board. Each G5 Stringer is wrapped top, bottom and along each side with “316” carbon fiber cloth.
High grade epoxy is then applied to saturate the carbon fiber and the five foam core pieces. The epoxy bonds the high density foam core pieces together and works with the carbon fiber fabric to create a super strong, lightweight board.
This combination of materials offers a board that is light, flexible and far more responsive than boards built with wood or foam only cores.
BROKITE is the only board company that goes to this extreme of skilled craftsmanship and expense to create a strong, flexible core with exceptional dynamic flex response while being super light.
