The BV2 Twin Tech is Chilli's EPS/EPOXY construction. Twin Tech is light, strong and fast. This is a model developed from the popular Black Vulture. The BV2 sits in the summer board category and has been designed with increased speed and higher performance than the original. With smaller, weaker waves in mind when designing this board, weve blended features from the original Black Vulture to create a speed generating board with a generous sweet spot. Lets break it down:
OUTLINE: The outline has a full nose for paddle power and speed in flat/fat surf. The middle section is curvey (nice rail line to turn from) with the wide point slightly more forward than a regular board. Through the tail, we removed the semi flyer from the original Black Vulture and in doing so, added a straighter rail line into the swallow that gives this board hold and control through turns.
ROCKER: The board has a flat-medium entry and a flat-medium tail exit. It has slightly less rocker in the tail than the original Black Vulture which has given the BV2 a speed generating bottom.
CONTOURS: Bottom contour is single concave from the nose down to the bottom 1/3 of the board. It then goes into a very slight double concave that runs out through the tail behind the fins. A balanced and forgiving bottom.
PERFORMANCE: Through the R & D of this model, the Black Vulture already had great attributes. Performance matched with a friendly forgiving outline. The BV2 is noticeably faster. To handle that speed we removed the semi flyer which gives that tail the hold and drive that is necessary. When testing with the team it was popular when surfed with a Twin + stabiliser setup. The tail having a straighter outline into a swallow complements the 2 + 1 fin template giving it unmatched control and release when needed. A regular thruster fin setup also works great giving you more hold through turns and allowing you to get vertical in the pocket.
TWIN TECH - Twin Tech offers a performance orientated flex pattern that's designed to simulate a traditional stringer surfboard but with an Epoxy/EPS 'new board feeling' every surf. Most of the strength comes from the 'Twin Carbon' strategically running up the centre of the deck and bottom. This creates a strong flex pattern that accentuates speed and produces that 'pop and liveliness' but with an underlying feeling of predictability. Tried and tested with Chilli's team of all ages and sizes, this construction feels lightweight, balanced and perfect to ride. Twin Tech consists of a stringer-less 36 gram EPS core and Chilli's own designed 'Twin Carbon' fibre tape. Bottom: Single layer of 4oz fibreglass (featuring Chilli's signature line by Colan Australia), Twin Carbon tape plus individual FCS II plug patches. Deck: 1 x layer of 4oz fiberglass, 1 x layer of 220 gram biaxial cloth, Twin Carbon tape plus a V-Tail patch.
