Appletree Applino V2 White Line
For the Appletree Applino V2 , the team at Appletree worked extensively with Paulino to improve on an already amazing design. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Applino V2 is that it is so lively and snappy. Some riders may experience this as somewhat nervous, but for those who like a loose and snappy board, this is exactly what makes the Applino so popular!
Advanced strapless kiteboard
If you are ready to step up your strapless kitesurfing game and, like Paulino, are driven and inspired by the power of nature, the Applino V2 advanced strapless kiteboard might just be your board!.
The first change Appletree made was to add a single centre channel on the bottom of the board, right between the feet. This increases the board upwind ability by reducing the rocker in the middle of the board. Making the board a bit more user friendly.
When carving, the board follows the rail line which still has quite a bit of rocker, to allow for tight turns in the pocket.
Double grab rails
Another unique feature is the double grab rail. The Applino V2 now has grab rails on both the deck AND the bottom of the board. This gives an even better grip when doing board-off freestyle tricks
Kick in the tail
The added kick in the tail helps loosen up the board and it also helps when landing reverse.
Outline and rocker
The rocker is moderate to high. With a single concave running into a V behind the front fins. All there to make the board loose and snappy while maintaining control.
The Applino V2 is thin throughout with a slightly wider outline compared to a more traditional Klokhouse Noseless. This makes the rail bite a bit more so you can really put pressure on the board when initiating a jump. The wider front gives you an easier landing area.
The Applino V2 comes with a thruster fin setup.
We advise combining the Applino V2 with a Pivot style thruster fin. For a bit of extra playfulness, you can choose a smaller middle fin in your thruster.
50K CLOSED CELL FOAM
Every Appletree board starts with a foam core of our very own 50K closed cell foam. This foam is formalised exclusively for appletree, it is not used in any other board in the market.
The foam can withstand 50.000 kg per square meter, while staying very light, and most of all very flexible. Another plus of our 50K foam is that it is closed cell, meaning that the foam will not take in water. And the board will not blow out when it gets hot
The base of the white line board consists of three layers wrapped around the core. An internal structural fibreglass layer, a hex-skin flexible honeycomb layer and another structural fibreglass layer that is placed in a 45 degree orientation. This to keep the board as flexible as possible while making a very strong base. The bottom is left without honeycomb, again to maintain maximum flex.
