North - Focus Hybrid Twin Tip Board 2020

The Focus is a high-performance freestyle board precisely engineered to push the boundaries and generate ultimate pop for aggressive freestyle moves. Greater traction allows you to hold that rail and edge harder, while the geometrically stiffer backbone enables more controlled takeoffs. Your ideal balance between stiffness and flex, with butter-soft tips to reduce the impact load on landings and glide through chop.

WHAT RIDERS SAY
"I feel like I've been riding this board for my whole life." - Bruna Kajiya

TECH SPECS                                                                                                                       HYBRID CARBON CONSTRUCTION
Strategically placed layers of unidirectional carbon tape reinforce the E-glass laminate in high load areas. This layup is sandwiched with a Paulownia wood core to deliver a well-balanced, more forgiving flex so you can ride for longer, with flow and form.

HARMONY BETWEEN ROCKER, OUTLINE AND FLEX
Delivers easy carving through turns and greater traction, allowing you to hold that rail and edge harder to load up the board for an explosive release.

LIGHTWEIGHT, IMPACT RESISTANT ECO CORE
Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios. Ultra-lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance, Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.

DYNAMIC FLEX
The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.

DURABLE ABS RAIL
For long-lasting, impact-resistant performance.

QUAD CONCAVE BOTTOM SHAPE
Forms a geometrically stiffer backbone for more controlled takeoffs, with dynamic flex to disperse chop with ease. Quad channels and butter-soft tips spread the load and soften the impact, letting you stomp your landings.

PROGRESSIVE ROCKER AND SQUARER, FLATTER OUTLINE                            Generates ultimate pop for aggressive freestyle moves.

INTEGRATED GRAB RAIL
Integrated into deck shape to provide easy grip for board-offs.
