Building on a reputation as one of the lightest, highest-tech twin tips in kiteboarding, the Widowmaker has been stripped down and rebuilt to be lighter and stronger than ever. Weighing in at just 4.5lbs., the 2017 Widowmaker features a cutting-edge hybrid Paulownia/Korroyd core.
Paulownia is known for its strong, springy characteristic, while Korroyd is a thermally-welded miniature honeycomb that provides superior strength at a fraction of the weight of a full-density core.
On the outside, the Widowmaker features a full carbon wrap with additional carbon Vectran weave in critical stress areas. Additional top and base layers provide even more strength and durability.
