Core Imperator 6 Board
HANDCRAFTED, HIGHTECH MASTERPIECE.
Don’t compromise. Ride the freeride board that set the standard all others are measured against. Because, sooner or later, you will appreciate the workmanship, technology, performance and soul that goes into every handmade Imperator 6 Edition.
Meet the board that would make Bernoulli and Coanda proud. A board that masters fluid dynamics to smooth out unruly chop, carve stylish turns, and inspire. The progressive rocker is more pronounced between the pads where it’s needed and less so on the tips. Although stunning on the surface, the real beauty remains hidden below. The unique Cartan® carbon unibody construction is a masterstroke in production technology. Under the exclusive Cartan carbon fiber, you will find a heart of solid, CNC milled, Paulownia wood. Known by boat builders as the finest nautical wood available, it resists decay and has superb flex characteristics.
Carved uses only the finest hand selected, marine grade, Paulownia wood. It’s long fibers and a unique directional adhesive application give the wood core its strength, reflexivity, and dynamic pop.
Carved Customs mills its wood cores to an accuracy of less than a thou. Perfection takes time and after 15 years of board building success, Carved Customs knows a few things about making precision boards.
The signature Imperator soul is alive and well in the new 6. Its powerful yet comfortable character is confidence inspiring even in tough, choppy conditions. Peerless performance derived, in part, from its new hull features. The distinctive and highly effective Imperator Ellipse continues in the 6th generation. The Ellipse channels forces to the fins and edges when warranted and absorbs the rest. For more pop and comfort. The sunny Baltic island of Fehmarn, a mecca for kite boarders, has been the home of Carved Customs since 2001. No Imperator leaves this German island without a nod from its master craftsmen.
Custom fins for every board. Because every board is custom. Our fins are so finely tuned to each board that we could not in good conscience share fins. Razor G10 fins. For fun or freestyle.
For the ultimate in strap adjustability even “on the fly” there is only one choice. The new Ultra pads & straps system features new fingertip control with a snowboard inspired tongue and click-buckle system.
