IN THE SLIGHTEST WIND.
LW 147x44 – LW 152x46
Fusion 3 LW
Don’t just mow the lawn. Do the stuff you normally do even in the slightest wind with the new Fusion 3 LW or Light Wind edition. Or is it Legit Woohoos edition because we’re pretty sure both of our Fusion 3 LW models bring legitimate but different woohoos to marginal days. Like the smaller's cat-like agility and the larger's mad swagger.
The 3rd generation LW’s feature a new multi-channel hull, progressive rails, a sophisticated LW rocker, and slightly wider tips. Our engineers also invested considerable effort fine tuning the CNC milled Paulownia wood core, the backbone of the Fusion 3 LW’s unmistakable, smooth riding, energetic feel. And no Fusion 3 LW is complete without our new and fabulous Union Pro 2 or Comfort pads and straps. Add a pair now before you forget!
Check out the new Fusion 3 at your authorized CORE retailer soon and let it take you on a metaphorical magic carpet ride
MEDIUM FUSION 3 LW (147 X 44 CM)
Unbelievably agile and light on its feet. We like to think of the 147 as a hybrid with class leading light wind handling and the freestyle capability of its smaller brothers. It’s perfect for beginners who need a confidence boost and heavier riders who enjoy unhooking in light winds. Its new Multi-Channels, Vario rails, and Deep-V keel will give you the control and response you’d expect from a much smaller board. The Fusion LW Medium. Lightweight greatness.
LARGE FUSION 3 LW (152 X 46 CM)
The ultimate early planer and lightwind cruiser. Our biggest Fusion 3 sports a concave board outline (like a parabolic snowboard) and a performance window that reaches down to 7 knots. Concave or sidecut rails improve upwind tacks by forcing the board to ride deeper thereby lengthening rail contact with the water. Wider tips promote early planing and keep you going through lulls. The sidecut Fusion 3 LW feels smaller underfoot so it has the potential to handle more wind than you would normally expect. You can always depend on the double concave V-Keel to keep you under control if the wind picks up. Because CORE always has your back.
Exclusive to CORE. Our proprietary 30° biaxial carbon fiber weave optimizes torsion and longitudinal flex. 30° biaxial carbon fiber has more flex along the length the board and less flex toe-to-heal. Cartan also needs less resin to cure which saves considerable weight. This weave means bigger pop, way softer landings, and better durability.
Variable rail thickness is new for the Fusion 3 LW. Its 9mm thick rails near the middle of the board reduce to 3mm on the tips. Now imagine the kinetic energy you will generate with those tips!
The Fusion 3’s new light wind rocker takes advantage of its Vario rails to deliver unmatched light wind performance. This knowhow borrows from the Imperator 6 - Carved Custom’s latest masterpiece.
3D WOOD CORE
Powerfully light, marine grade, wood core. The laminated, long-grained Paulownia wood core gives our boards dimensional stability, decay resistance, and a lightweight yet distinctively powerful character.
To further optimize flex on the Fusion 3 LW, we extend the Paulownia further towards the board edges and CNC mill both top and bottom. The larger wood core reduces board weight and improves flex memory.
Diamond shaped perfection. Take a close look at the Fusion’s surface contours. Near the footpads, the wood core is milled in the shape of a diamond. This shape directs torsional forces to the edges where you want them for a perfect balance between flex and rigidity.
Inspired by the legendary handling of deep V powerboats in rough waters, we added an even deeper V-shaped keel along the entire length of the board to penetrate chop and smooth your ride. The noticeably deeper V rides even smoother and delivers pillow-soft landings.
The channels worked so well on the Fusion 2 we added a center and edge channels to the new board. The center channel follows the length of the board and provides extra depth for the V-Keel. In addition to the center channel, we added two ¾ length outer channels that further improve edging. Freestylers can load their edges more than ever. And freeriders will notice how well the Fusion 3 tracks upwind.
Always in control. The double concave V hull increases hydrodynamic grip at any board angle to rip tighter, butter-smooth turns. Effortless, slashy turns hat will be imprinted in your memory forever.
G10 CUTBACK FINS (48MM)
A perfect balance between tracking and freestylin’ magic. The impact resistant, G10 fiberglass fins have just the right amount of tracking stability without getting too much in the way of switches.
