The new MBS Pro 90 2013 Kiteboard
is aimed firmly at what the pro kite flyers have been asking for. A top of the line board for kiteboarding that is REALLY light and performs what needs to be done! Designed from the ground up by the MBS Europe Kite Pro Team Lewis Wilby, Mark Berry and Dave Ursell. It is a big departure in looks and performance from all other MBS products.
MBS have been working away on creating a 2012 Pro 90. It has been a long time coming. We have kept a lot of elements of the original Pro 90 and changed others. The shape is largely unchanged except it is 2cm wider in the middle – we feel this improves the flex pattern. The layup is totally new. We listened to feedback and tried to create Pro 90 performance at a much more accessible price point. We feel we have done pretty well on this getting the price to £379.
The material we have decided to work on is bamboo. The properties of bamboo are fairly well known, and its use in longboards and skis etc is well documented. When worked into a mountainboard deck, it provides great pop and pretty low weight. A complete Pro 90 weighs in at 5.2kg.
The graphics are again done by Dan at Decreate – this is one of the best board graphics we have seen in a long time!MBS Pro 90 2013 Kiteboard Spec:
