Wilson Signs 100% FCS Hardware Deal

by Chris Durlacher | Apr 02, 2015
FCS is excited to announce the signing of 2014 Pipe Master and Triple Crown champion Julian Wilson to a 100% hardware deal with FCS.

In recent years Julian has been contracted to ride the FCS system and fins, and after a period of testing felt confident to commit to the full hardware offering under the FCS banner.

“I’ve been working closely with FCS on my fins and the dynamic works well, so it felt right to align with one brand for all my hardware needs”, said Julian after making the deal official.

Julian will have a new signature FCS traction pad hitting the market in 2015. He recently signed off on his FCS pad, and having outgrown his current signature fin, is currently fine-tuning a larger fin template better suited to his stronger frame.

“I’m very particular about my equipment so it’s great having the confidence and trust I’ve built in FCS to get the best products that I need to compete at the highest level”.

The new FCS traction range is set to hit the southern hemisphere market in September 2015, and later in March 2016 in the northern hemisphere. 

The range is separated into two categories; the Athlete Series that has surfer specific features, and the Essential Series, which features 3 iconic templates that will accommodate a variety of tail shapes.
