Carved Imperator 7

From Carved

Free your inner twintip virtuoso with Carved Custom’s magnum opus. The all-new Cartan 2 powered twintip is our lightest and most responsive board ever. And now with an on-the-fly rocker adjuster, the Imperator 7 responds like no other board. Ride a masterpiece.

  • New! CARTAN 2: Cartan 2, as it’s called, combines untwisted, unidirectional carbon fiber strands with minimal epoxy binders into a thin, flat, 30° scrim matching the exact board size. The evenly distributed, very straight fibers result in a composite laminate with a lighter, more uniform microstructure than those produced using conventional woven-fabric pre-pregs. The Imperator’s improved filament-to-filament load transfer results in an incredibly energetic Gen7 that’s 100g lighter.
  • New! REVO: A clever rocker adjuster integrated into the grab handle instantly increases or decreases the Imperator 7’s rocker by 15mm resulting in a board that can do it all. Rocket upwind when rocker is reduced. Or increase rocker when you’re in the mood to play around.
  • HULL: The Imperator 7 carries over its signature features that have been perfected over 20 years. The Ellipse channels energy to the fins and edges when warranted and absorbs the rest. A double concave V-shaped keel cuts through the roughest chop and delivers incredible grip and poise. Hand-finished rails feature slightly sharper, drag-reducing, tucked under rail shapes that help carve buttery smooth turns.
  • LIGHT WIND: See, feel and experience a lightwind masterpiece. See the shimmer of the proprietary carbon fiber, feel the unique hand-finished rails, and experience the power, control, and sheer pleasure the new LW edition generates in the lightest of winds.
