The new FCS II System promises to become the new world standard in system technology and performance.
The latest surfboard fin revolution presents several key advantages: the need for any screws or tool to secure the fins has been eliminated; it's backward compatible, meaning it will accept fins from the original dual tab system.
Also, the FCS II System puts the leading edge of the fin inside the plug, and the base of the fins sits flush to the surface of the board creating a more seamless connection.
When paired with fins from the new FCS II Essential Series, it's now possible to install and remove your fins in seconds. The company says "what you'll find when you ride the new FCS II system is more speed, drive, acceleration, and most importantly more response from your board".
In the end, surfer will have four thruster templates and three quad templates, all of which are available in different sizes and constructions. Based on the waves you're surfing and the performance you desire, you'll choose the correct size fin for your weight.
The FCS II System hits the market by September 2013.
