The New FCS II Tool-Less LB Fins

by Chris Durlacher | Sep 29, 2015
Introducing the new FCS II Tool-less Longboard Fins. Incorporating the same patented technology as the revolutionary FCS II Fin System, the new longboard fins can be secured into a fin box without the need for a screw and plate.

Furthermore, it takes just seconds to insert and remove the fins, or make subtle adjustments mid surfing session.

Having been in development for some time, the new longboard fins have already proved successful. Harley Ingleby recently won his second WSL World Longboard Tile using the technology that features a wear resistant barrel & corrosion-resistant titanium pin all housed within a specially designed cassette that resides in the base of the fins.

“The titanium rod and barrel mechanism is the secret to the new fins, effectively holding the fin securely in place by engaging the recess in the fin box”

It’s simple to use, adaptable to most fin boxes on the market, yet effective in maintaining the fins position in the board.

Along with the new technology comes an entirely new longboard fin range. Working closely with some of the LB team riders, FCS is hoping to demystify the confusion surrounding longboard fins by releasing a simplified ‘Essential Series’ LB fin range.

The new FCS II LB Essential Series consists of three unique single fin templates; the CONNECT, PIVOT and the FLOW. Each fin is suited to a different style of longboard surfing, from the fast high performance approach, through to nose riding and a more traditional laid back style.
