This legendary range is part of the
history of funboarding, boards that are easy to ride, fast and
versatile. The Techno 283 was the first of the new generation of wide
boards. Since then, the Techno series has shown its supremacy in all
types of water conditions and won much public appreciation : from the
most demanding of racers (Techno 293OD) to lovers of long distance
racing and cruising (Hi Ho) not forgetting funboard clubs the world
over and the most hardcore of funboard riders, they've all loved the
boards performance, strength, stiffness and light weight, matched by
the quality of the fittings. The whole Techno series is now accepted as
the benchmark in their individual categories.
BIC Sport is the only European windsurf manufacturer, and the only
one to master composite thermoforming with aluminium moulds. This highly
technical procedure allows us to make boards with only one closure of
the mould, thus greatly limiting any extra material used in the
manufacturing process. The end result is a board that is both 20%
lighter than other thermoformed boards, and strongly competitive with
epoxy sandwich boards.
BIC Sport's board production takes place in aluminium moulds where
the asa skin, carbon reinforcements, glass fibers, resin, and
polystyrene core (chosen for its lightweight) are pressed together in
one shot under high pressure and heat.
Concerning durability, our CTS boards are at least 30% more impact
resistant compared to equivalent epoxy sandwich boards. On the water
this translates into a durable board with competitive stiffness. This is
not to forget that each and every board made at BIC Sport is an exact
copy of that magic shape finally approved by the shaper and testers.
To use an example, the Techno 293 One Design is one of the strongest
race classes in windsurfing today. The exceptional durability and
lightweight of the board were key factors in this class achieving ISAF
International Status for junior racers U17 years. The quality of the
technology is proven by the board's ability to withstand an intensive
level of use by competitive racers over a long period of time.
