are designed for high performance; offering a fine-tuned flex made at a very lightweight. The flex allows power to be stored and released to drive through turns in the waves, while the stiffness on flat-water delivers solid tracking and control.
The most ground breaking part of the new Armacore collection is that they offer a sustainable solution for closed-loop recycling and contribute to the creation of a circular economy. The core of the fin uses Armacel which is made of 100% Recycled Plastic bottles (RPET). The fins are built with a revolutionary bio recyclable epoxy resin that can be recycled to recover and reuse all of the materials without resorting to the use of new virgin materials. In essence, the fin can be dipped in a solution for 2 – 3 hours, during which the resin, the core and the fibre reinforcements separate. These can then be partly reused to generate new fins or create further bioproducts such as plastic injected parts like foot strap inserts. The system has been listed for an Award and has the potential to change eventually the entire industry’s outlook on how way molds, tooling, boards and fins can be recycled.
