The brand new 2020 Eleveight Escape is an ultra versatile, high-performance directional board
With an extremely durable built quality, the 2020 Escape is made for strapless freestyle riders that like to spice things up with some wave action.
The Escape’s noseless design with short rails results in high agility and dynamic riding characteristics, perfect for rotations and tight cutbacks.
During design, the aim was translating the original design of the Escape to a more durable, robust construction, preserving proven performance features. Eleveight has developed an innovative composite vacuum sandwich construction (CVC) that includes a Bamboo top deck and a full carbon layer on the bottom. This combination is very light, yet insanely sturdy. Even when ridden extensively, the Escape will last for many years.
The original placement of channels at the nose and tail harmonize with the Thruster fin setup (Futures fins). You will have plenty of grip, perfect for aggressive maneuvers and sketchy landings. The short rails minimize drag while optimizing the swing weight. This makes rotations so much easier. Once popped out of the water, small impulses are enough to initiate rotations. Progressing strapless freestyle riders will have quick achievements, improving their skills rapidly.
The Escape also performs in small to mid-sized waves as it has the direct feel which is needed for long carves and snappy hacks. Unleash the Escape and rule the sea.
