WHAT IS FIREFIN?
FIREFIN IS THE TOOL LESS, UNIVERSALLY MOUNTABLE FIN SYSTEM FOR TWINTIP KITEBOARDS.
NO TOOLS NEEDED TO EASILY EXCHANGE FIREFINS TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR BOARD PERFORMANCE AND STYLE IN SECONDS.
THE PLUG AND PLAY SYSTEM ENSURES YOU TRAVEL WORRY FREE WITHOUT DAMAGING YOUR GEAR.
FINS HAVE A HUGE IMPACT ON THE PERFORMANCE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF YOUR BOARD
FINS ARE A KEY COMPONENT

GRIP - SPEED - CONTROL

THE KEY PARAMETERS DEFINING THE DESIGN AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FIN
The height, also refered to as depth, is defined as the distance the fins penetrate into the water.
By increasing the height, the fin gains more grip which is useful for up-wind and pop capabilities. Lowering the depth proportionally can achieve a more skatey feeling without losing grip.
The length is the dimension along the board also known as base.
It has an impact on the drive of the board as well as directional stability and turning speed. Alterations can generate enough grip while still maintaining a low profile.
The area of the fin defines how much grip you have in water, the power you can generate, and the responsiveness of your board.
Depending on the proportions of the fin area different performance characteristics can be achieved. Alterations to the base and depth make it possible to design a large variety of fins, depending on the riders choice.
choose your ride
To get you started with your Firefin experience, three heights and two lengths reflecting the most commonly used fins are currently available.
THE FIREFIN PATENTED TECHNOLOGY WAS TESTED BY SOME OF THE BEST PRO-RIDERS IN THE WORLD AND CONSISTS Of 2 ELEMENTS:
1. THE UNIVERSAL BASE 2. THE CLICK FIN
➊ UNIVERSAL BASE
The base is universally mountable and fits all twin-tip boards with standard 2 holes.
It can be easily retrofitted so you can use your Firefins on your favorite board!
ALL FIREFIN MODELS FIT ONTO THE SAME UNIVERSAL BASE
Attached once, the base remains on your board so you can leave your tools at home.
The compact and durable design has no sharp edges and will not damage your other gear making it safe and practical for traveling.
The fin consists of 2 materials:
• an hard, engineering-grade, recyclable thermoplastic body
• a marine-grade, durable silikon skirt
TWO-COMPONENT (2K) INJECTION MOLDING AND HIGHEST GRADE MATERIALS
2K injection molding physically fuses the hard and elastic material creating the highest quality units.
With this production method we utilize the best of each material quality in one product.
Marine-grade silicone preformes very well and is commonly used in extreme conditions.
It has good qualities in regards to corrosion resistance, UV stability and durrability in saltwater.
➌ UNITY CHANNELS
The fin cavity and base have corresponding channels and anchor points creating a bomb-proof and seamless connection
THE SNAP-FIT SYSTEM ENSURES MAXIMUM STABILITY
Designed and engineered with optimized 3D force distribution for reliable pop-out prevention.
You can rely on your Firefins in all conditions.
➍ SEAM LIP
When connecting, the lip compresses to seal the mechanism and load the system with counterforce
THE SYSTEM ENGAGES WITH
Counterpressure from the highly durable silicone lip ensures strong stability and smooth ejection
The marine-grade silicone seals the system and protects it from debris.
➎ EJECT BUTTONS
The side buttons are pressed simultaneously to eject the fin
EJECTING FIREFINS IS
QUICK AND EASY
The plug-and-play system is intuitive and lightning fast!
Press the side buttons firmly to hear multiple "clicks". Then pull away the fin.
