BWS Stallion Overhead Kiteboard
UNMATCHED CONTROL ON BIGGER AND STEEP WAVES WITH THE MOST RADICAL AND TIGHT BOTTOM TURNS.
The BWS Stallion Overhead is designed following the great success of the BWS Stallion, thanks to its incredible performance all round and innovative construction, BWS desired to go bigger and design a new shape inspired by the Stallion but specifically for bigger and steep waves. In this light the Stallion Overhead was born. After 18 months of R&D, trying many different shapes and board concepts we couldn’t be happier with the final result. The Stallion Overhead’s design offers unmatched control in the critical sections of the wave.
This dream was achieved with a redistributed volume, more curved outline with a more narrow tail, more tail rocker and scoop in the nose sum up some of the differences with the Stallion. A completely new channel concept ensures the fast and controllable drive. The Stallion Overhead is the first noseless board in the market offering high performance in big waves and the ‘good’ days, completely compatible and not overlapping in a quiver with the Stallion.
What is unique in Stallion Overhead is the mix of conceptual paths the water can flow which does make it plane early, ride fast, turn tight and be completely drag free. There is a precise formula of fin placement, width and channel dispersion, which makes the Stallion boards the best kitesurfing boards on the market today. When the waves get bigger and steep huge sensation is guaranteed, this is the board you want to be on.
The manufacturing of the board is in Europe at the board factory Apple Tree, who are constantly pushing and developing innovative kiteboard construction technologies. A unique construction with Hexcore technology was developed to ensure the lightest and very durable boards available on the market today.
XPS: XPS is like EPS so it only works with epoxy resin. But it is different that it does not contain the beads that EPS has, That’s whey call it closed foam, it means it’s completely waterproof! So no worries when you ding the board. just keep kiting and fix it later. XPS is notoriously hard to laminate, but our fusion tech makes it possible! The core is fused with the skin, this gives an optimal bond between skin and core, virtually eliminating de-lamination.
Hex-cell foam: Strategically placed patches provide a durable platform for your feet. These patches are made from a super high strength PET honeycomb foam that is radically different from any other honeycomb on the market today. The honeycomb is set into the deck of the board, it doesn’t just sit on top of the foam. The patches are sandwiched between fiberglass layers, together they form a very dent resistant layer and prevent the deck under your feet from denting marks.
Color: The boards are glassed in clear epoxy so you can look directly inside the board, we have nothing to hide under layers of paint! The color on the boards come from tint in the resin itself, it’s transparent and will never fade.
Ecoboard: As all our other boards in the line up the Stallion Overhead is also officially part of Ecoboard Project, building the board with more eco-friendly resins. We’re happy to contribute to a more eco-friendly shredders world and be part of the ECOBOARDProject. Every Overhead board comes with an officially numbered Ecoboard label.
5’2 x 17.1” x 2.0”. 20,7L
5’4 x 17.5” x 2.0”. 21,8L
5’6 x 18.0” x 2.0”. 23.6L
Weight of Stallion Overhead is between 2,9 and 3,1kg, depending on size.
You cannot compare the shape of the Stallion Overhead with a traditional surfboard, we recommend to ride it between 4′′ and 6′′ shorter then a directional. Comparing to the Stallion, we recommend to size up 1 size, eg when riding Stallion 5’2, go for the Stallion Overhead 5’4.
5’2: Weight 60/75kg. Height 155-175cm
5’4: Weight 75/90kg. Height 170-185cm
5’6: Weight 90/+100kg. Height 180-200cm
The BWS Stallion Overhead comes with 3 FCSII fin boxes.
This board package comes deck only. Fins & eventual pads are to be purchased separately.
