Cleanline Staff Stefan Says:
This is a great set of fins and kind of a sleeper in the Futures line. These fins were designed for small-medium sized waves and generally tend to loosen up a board, especially if it has a wider tail. Similar in shape and outline to the classic Al Merrick fin template, but more lively, the Roberts fin is a little more upright, skatey and has an inside foil on the side fins. Don’t sleep!
Prepare yourself for full speed with the Futures Fins Roberts Generation is a large template thruster set from Futures Generation Series. These fins will provide all the speed you need while maintaining an element of control. Sitting one notch below the Blackstix on the Ride Number scale, all Generation Series fins hold Ride Numbers between 9 to 7, for those of you looking for a bit more stability and drive than Blackstix.
To control tip flex dynamics, Futures has uniquely oriented multiple layers of uni-directional fiberglass. The uni-fiberglass has more spring then normal bi-directional glass and it is woven with strands of poly-fibers that create more strength and control in the fin tip. In addition uni-directional carbon strips have been placed vertically across the front half of each fin. Acting as spines, this secures the leading edge and forces the tip to flex across less area and becoming much "snappier". Additional strength in the right places allow the Generation Series to remain lightweight and strong.
To add one more layer of performance to the Generation Series, Futures uses epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is lighter and more resilient than polyester resin. These features all play a role in making the Generation Series a responsive, speed-generating fin, while retaining an element of control. Bi-directional 12K carbon panels cover the base on the inside and outside of the fin. This solid base creates drive and leave the tip free to remain resilient. The combination is lightweight ad stable, giving you both speed and power.
Generation fins combine the perfect blend of unique carbon & fiberglass layups to provide all the speed you need while maintaining an element of control.
Futures V2 foil is the go to for speed generating fins. The foil enhances efficient water flow worth its uniquely designed curved surfaces.
