QD2 3.75 Blackstix

QUAD REAR – SMALL

The QD2 3.75 Blackstix is a small size quad rear with a Ride Number of 8.1. Looking to turn your favorite Thruster set into a Quad? This pair of Quad Rears can be combined with any Futures front fins to suit your riding preference, board design and waves. With an 80/20 foil, these rears are a mix of response and control. They will favor boards that have the rear boxes set closer to the rail, away from the stringer.

CONSTRUCTION

 

Blackstix

SAME SPRING. MORE DRIVE.

For ten years Blackstix fins have been a staple in Futures line as a reliable way to generate speed and make your board feel more lively. Our new Blackstix maintain Ride Numbers in the Speed Generating range of 10 to 7, and are designed with new materials and engineered layup for an enhanced ride.

23 Degree

UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON

Futures added two layers of unidirectional carbon to the base of the fins, at an angle that controls how the tip of the fin bends and rotates. This makes Blackstix 3.0 hold better through power turns while feeling just as springy as Blackstix 2.0.

Asymmetrical

12 CARBON

Futures put asymmetrical carbon panels on the inside and outside of the fin, while allowing only the carbon placed on the inside of the fin to climb completely to the tip. Having this carbon on both sides of the base creates a solid, drivey feel, but with carbon on the outside of the fin climbing only partially up the fin, the fin progressively flexes more as it gets closer to the tip. This gives a snappy feel to your board and enables the unique liveliness that only Blackstix can provide.

Epoxy Resin

STRONG. LIGHT. RESILIENT.

To add one more layer of performance to the Blackstix, Futures use epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is lighter, tougher & more resilient than polyester resin. These features all play a role in making the Blackstix the lightest & fastest fins in the world. As a bonus, epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds) than polyester resin, which means a decrease in harmful chemicals in our environment.

V2 Foil

SPEED GENERATING

Feel the stringer facing side of any leading fin in a Blackstix set, and you’ll notice it feels curved near the base and trailing edge. This is one aspect of the V2 foil – a revolution in fin design over decade ago that is still improving how water flows across fins today. The V2 foil creates an effortless feeling rail-to-rail linkage, so you can keep speed while setting up big maneuvers down the line, even when the waves you’re surfing lack power.
