2017 AtomIQ

The innovative slim freerider.

The AtomIQ introduced the super slim concept: these thinner boards, combined with a short and wide outline, have a massive wind range. They’re controllable and maneuverable in high winds, and plane early in light winds.

They’re available in three sizes:

AtomIQ-Specs

This rocker is the core ingredient for the AtomIQ’s blend of speed and control with an efficient, flying sensation.

The AtomIQ uses Starboard’s iSonic rocker profile.

The AtomIQ’s profile is 10 cm thin in the mid-section to minimize excess volume, lower the board’s center of gravity and shed excess volume for more control and a wider wind range.

 

The AtomIQs have extra deck dome just under the back feet for added comfort and grip.


The wide slim shape reduces to a narrow surface behind the back foot for improved speed and tighter jibes. Cut-aways allow for a crisper fin grip and improved top speed.

New 2017 Freeride Power CNC G-10 fins have a thinner tip for more speed and improved control. The upright rake and thicker base provide maximum stability and traction.

Double-layered contoured sponge pads use our new square grooving pattern for improved comfort.


The AtomIQs use a Power Box fin fitting.

Because of the innovative extra-thin shape concept, how you choose your AtomIQ size is important:

  • If you’re a progressing sailor, choose the AtomIQ that matches your current board’s volume.
  • If you’re an advanced windsurfer, pick the AtomIQ that matches your current board’s width.

The AtomIQs change looks for 2017 with our new minimalist graphic design on the deck and bottom with a visible Carbon Innegra rail band that adds to the boards’ core structural stiffness.

UltraCore Hybrid Carbon Logo-LR

UltraCore Carbon is the lightest construction technology that uses Starboard’s proprietary sandwich core material that’s 30% stronger, 40% stiffer and 10% lighter than conventional PVC sandwich cores. The result are boards up to half a kilo lighter than average.


To minimize the flex between the rider’s back foot and the mast foot pressure, we’ve upgraded the UltraCore Carbon construction with two more Smart Carbon vectors on the deck.

UltraCore

What is UltraCore?

UltraCore is Starboard’s proprietary sandwich core material that’s 30% stronger, 40% stiffer and 10% lighter than conventional PVC sandwich cores. UltraCore allows Starboard to build boards up to 1.2 kg lighter than our 2016 models.

3DX - Orange-LR

The AtomIQs are also available in the 3DX construction.

3DX stands for three dimensional biaxial glass microsandwich construction. Both deck and bottom are wrapped in 45 degree biaxial glass fiber wetted out with an expanding foam epoxy cured under high pressure.

The biaxial glass gives a crisp, stiff feel with flex for choppy conditions. The foam epoxy creates a 2mm skin thickness for a microsandwich effect: tough and strong.
