AP Explorer 2 - 12'0" Carbon CX
Multi purpose touring SUP with a displacement hull design. Perfect for general touring, exercise or extended trips. Light weight performance carbon construction. High volume suits paddlers of all weights. Sleek black/grey/white colour scheme.
DESIGN: Recently updated, extra width and volume has been added to increase stability and provide more speed and distance per stroke. Full rails keep the board sitting high on the water for easy touring and long exploratory missions on flat water.
PERFORMANCE: The chop-piercing displacement hull and narrow nose cuts through the water and softens chatter in bumpier conditions. While incredibly stable through the middle, the tapered tail helps retain the glide and flow of a more streamlined race board, and also aids with pivoting and making directional changes.
FEATURES: Cavity carry handle, cushioning deck traction, and perimeter lanyard plugs for creating both forward and aft storage zones. These plugs also make it easy to convert the board into a utility SUP that’ll take all your fishing and touring gear along for the ride. The custom touring fin has a square outline with full tip that produces nice start-up acceleration and glide, while maintaining a high distance-to-stroke ratio.
CONSTRUCTION: Carbon Fusion (CX) is a multi-layer sandwich construction that’s formed through the use of several vacuum bag processes. The goal of this construction is to build a light-weight, strong and performance orientated board. Consisting of two layers of carbon, multiple layers of fibreglass and unidirectional carbon tape applied to a medium density EPS core, the vacuum bagging process is done after each layer is applied to ensure the maximum bond is formed, without an excess use of epoxy resin. This process produces a superb product that will more than meet the requirements of paddlers who want to push their performance.
