The proven performer and bestseller is perfected. After four years, Europe’s favorite allrounder is improved. Yes, the board that everyone loves for its range and Cartan carbon fiber performance is better. After two years of continuous R&D, we bring you the third generation Fusion featuring revolutionary board improvements borrowed from Carved Customs -Europe’s leading custom board manufacturer- and their latest masterpiece, the Imperator 6.
Eight proven sizes with improved construction. Other than the offering the same board sizes, everything else is new. “We’ve reworked just about everything,” says Daniel Borchert, Head of Twintip Engineering. “From the ground up.” Owners will see the biggest changes in the hull. But equally profound improvements have been made to the Fusion 3’s wood core.
Multi-Channel, deep V hull for unbelievable control and comfort. The tip channels worked so well on the Fusion 2 that CORE added a full center and ¾ edge channels to the new board. The center channel follows the length of the board and the two ¾ length outer channels sit on either side of the center channel. “The new channel provides extra depth for the concave V-Keel” comments Borchert, “And seriously ups board performance.”
Extended 3D wood core for better flex memory. To further improve the Fusion 3’s carving, CORE extended the Paulownia further towards the board edges and CNC milled both top and bottom. The larger wood core reduced board weight and improved flex memory. Variable rail thickness is new for the Fusion 3. Its 9mm thick rails near the middle of the board reduce to 3mm on the tips. “Vario Rails brings carving to whole new level,” comments Borchert, “and the progressive rocker makes landings almost as good as the Imperator 6.”
Vee Rocker – more rocker underfoot and less rocker towards tips. The Fusion 3’s new rocker is more pronounced under your feet and progressively reduces towards the tips. This knowhow borrows from the Imperator 6 – Carved Custom’s latest masterpiece. Union Pro 2: Limitless stances und fit options. “The enormous positive feedback on the original Union Pro proves that we’re on the right track,” says CORE boss Bernie Hiss as he presents the new Union Pro 2 pads and straps. In addition to three longitudinal positions and eleven different foot angle options, the new footpad features six steps of fore/aft adjustment to bring the pad closer/further away from the edges. The slightly thinner orthotic EVA footpads with its “toe grabber” 3D surface will hold your feet securely even on those off-balance landings. Similar customization options are found on the improved straps to give you the perfect fit even with booties on! The dual velcro strap design features toolfree pitch, longitudinal and height adjustments to support your foot precisely. We lined the strap interior with EVA and neoprene while protecting the exterior with durable synthetic leather.Fusion 3 and Fusion 3 LW – ready for testing at any authorized CORE retailer.
