Originally designed by legendary shaper Al Merrick, the FCS II AM template continues to be one of the most popular Shaper Series fins in the range.

This proven template is now available in Performance Core material featuring AirCore technology, making it stiffer and lighter for increased performance in critical moments.

 

GEOMETRY

Sitting in the Carver Family, the AM template has a slightly elongated base, a high degree of sweep, a narrow tip and a traditional flat foil on the side fins. Both the Medium and Large sizes have a smaller centre fin offering faster tail release when performing critical turns.

 

CONSTRUCTION: PC + AIRCORE

Performance Core (PC) fins have a progressive flex from the base through to the tip helping the everyday surfer to maintain drive and speed through turns. PC fins are versatile, very responsive, and can be used in a variety of different conditions.

Fins with AirCore Technology feature a pressed polyurethane foam core that mimics the geometric foil of the fin. AirCore technology reduces the amount of fiberglass required in the RTM molding process making it much lighter while allowing total manipulation of the flex.

 

 

PERFORMANCE

The high degree of sweep delivers substantial drive and the ability to extend a longer arc on the open face. Having a stiffer flex, these fins will also perform exceptionally well in steeper parts of the wave and provide a feeling of control when laying a hard rail turn.

“Lots of drive with just the right amount of release, these fins have been tested and proven by the CI team riders around the world. These new stiffer AM PC + AirCore fins allow surfers to really engage their fins and get the most out their boards without any limitations”. – CI
