Controlled, high speed turns. Excels in critical conditions.
• Oversized, all-round fin for a diverse range of surfers.
• Functional template with flat foil on the side fins delivering fast, controlled directional changes.
• Designed for surfers who like to attack the wave and surf with energy and power on critical parts of the wave.
A wide range of conditions, particularly good in critical overhead waves.
Performance boards with the FCS II Fin System. *Please Note: this fin is designed to be used exclusively with the FCS II Fin System, and will not fit in the traditional FCS Dual Plug System.
PERFORMANCE CORE CARBON
Performance Core material and construction combined with carbon fiber, is designed to deliver the feeling of a traditional fibreglass fin with the added performance of reduced weight. The RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) process produces a lightweight fin with remarkable flex, a smooth feel and an impressive aesthetic.
SMALL (55Kg - 70Kg)
Base: 4.28" / 109mm
Depth: 4.47" / 113mm
Area: 14.51"² / 9360mm²
The FCS II system has been designed to perform at the highest level by seamlessly connecting 3 essential elements in surfing; the surfer, the surfboard and the fins. When paired with fins from the new FCS II Essential Series, it’s now possible to install and remove your fins in seconds, without the need for any screws or tools.
What you’ll find when you ride the new FCS II system is more speed, more drive, more acceleration, and most importantly more response from your board. This equates to better surfing, and you’ll be in the line up faster.
Our team riders have given the new FCS II system their personal tick of approval, which is validation from the best surfers on the planet.
Efficient keyless system for quick fin installation and release.
2. Flush Leading Edge
Recessed leading edge with flush base connection improves water flow.
3. Backward Compatible
Grub screws can be inserted to accept your existing FCS fins.
4. Mechanism: Rotating Barrel
Self lubricating, wear resistant barrel locks the fin into the plug.
5. Mechanism: Titanium Rod
Aerospace grade titanium rod applies lateral pressure to the fin tab.
6. Honeycomb Construction
Lightweight composite frame encapsulated by high density foam reduces weight and maintains tail flex.
Will the FCS II mechanism keep working over time?
The FCS II mechanism will continue to work no matter how many times you change your fins. This simple, but well refined mechanism constructed from superior materials ensures operational longevity.
FCS has completed repetition testing (installing then removing a fin from the system) with no retention force lost over 4,000 cycles. Under normal conditions, the FCS II system will outlast the life of the board.
Will fins eject out of the system unintentionally when surfing?
The FCS II system has a high fin retaining force (around 12kg/26Ibs) and fins cannot be removed from the system by placing force on the front or side of the fin (i.e. the direction of forces applied to the fin during surfing). A fin can only be removed from the system by applying an upwards force to the rear of the fin.
Will sun and salt water corrode the FCS II mechanism? And how about if sand enters the plug, will it jam?
The FCS II mechanism has been designed to operate in a highly corrosive environment. All materials used to construct the FCS II plug have been selected for their anti-corrosion properties; including titanium which is an inert material (will not rust). If sand enters the plug, the mechanism will not be restricted and will flush out the sand through the open slot cavities.
Will my old FCS (dual tab) fins work with this system?
Yes, you can use all your existing FCS fins with the FCS II system. The FCS II plugs are backwards compatible - grub screws can be used within the FCS II plugs to secure your existing dual tab FCS fins.
FCS has designed a set of unobtrusive silicone infills to fill the gap created by the old fins in the new system. The infills are made from high quality silicone rubber which will not damage the plugs or fins. They are also extremely durable, light and built to withstand extreme temperature and corrosive conditions. The infills replicate the flush leading edge of the new fin design improving the performance of the old fins.
