2018 Liquid Force Kiteboards

The 2018 Liquid Force kiteboards are out!

The Benchmark
New for this season is the Benchmark. This is the Gisela Pulido pro-model, specifically designed for women and light riders.
Specific outline, rocker and channels, as well as a reduced width. The Benchmarks focuses on Freestyle and Freeride.

This is what Liquid Force is saying about it:

There is no question that a 10-time World Champion knows what is needed in a board to reach the highest of level of competition. Gisela Pulido and her father Juan Manuel have been perfecting her perfect ideal twin tip for years. With the added knowledge of LF’s extensive board engineering team Gisela finally says the board of her dreams has been created. The Benchmark incorporates a rocker line, flex pattern, and outline that the most demanding gals will enjoy, while at the same time forgiving enough to inspire progression. Utilizing the same core profiling technique as the Echo, the Benchmark has been created with a solid wood core that has a single concave to channel tips that smoothes out the harsh chop and make upwind pointing simple. Rounding out the board is a sandwich glass construction and capped with Liquid Rail for durability.

The Echo
Updated for 2018 is Brandon Scheid signature model, oriented at Freestyle, Wakestyle and Park and sliders. The Echo is finally getting a grind base this year and gets a simplified range with two boards (137×42 and 142×42.5). New for 2018 is the specific Flex Tips on the Echo. No negative flex with a solid central base for boots, and tips that flex makes it a great weapon for sliders.

This is what Liquid Force is saying about it:

From competition to creative free riding Brandon Scheid undeniably is the landlord of the current wakestyle movement. Brandon has been working with master shaper Jimmy Redmon to create a board that will both lock on a slider and deliver explosive pop off the water. The new 2018 Echo exceeds the standard and will take your riding to the next level. New for this year is the addition of the LF Flex Tip technology to the channeled, profile wood core. This allows for the tips to flex deeper on presses without sacrificing the center board stiffness required to generate pop and handle hard landings. The addition of the Liquid Force Grind base adds durability not just for hitting rails and sliders but also for coarse sand launches. All blended with the proven triple concave to fluted channel bottom contour, high rocker and sandwich construction, a recipe for the purest of wake style circles.
