FCS II Fin Plugs
Buy the FCS II Plug System for manufacturers. Available for purchase in variety of colours and three angles (3º, 5º, and 9º) of rail box cant (offset from centre). FCS II is designed to accommodate all surfers; regardless of their age demographic, surfing genre, or the boards and waves they’re riding.
(Note: When ordering, indicate left, right or centre plugs from the back looking to the front on the bottom of the board.)
The main features:
Efficient keyless system for quick fin installation and release. The FCS II system requires no grub screws or keys to secure the fins to the board.
Fins can be easily inserted and removed in seconds, allowing you to adapt your equipment to the conditions, on land and in the water.
Recessed leading edge with flush base connection improves water flow. These features not only create a sturdy anchorage to the board, but minimize water disruption through a more flush and seamless transition between the fin and board surface.
The FCS II System is backwards compatible with all your favourite FCS dual tab Fins.
The FCS II Compatibility Kit contains specially designed silicone infills to eliminate the gap created by the dual tab fins in the new system.
Constructed using a corrosion resistant titanium tension rod, and a rotating, wear-resistant polymer barrel. When the fin is inserted into the plug the barrel interacts with a groove detail in the fin to lock it into place using a combination of downward and lateral force. The FCS II Fin System has been tested to over 4,000 cycles (installing & then removing the fin). Under normal conditions, the FCS II system will outlast the life of the board.
Lightweight Composite Frame encapsulated by high density foam reduces weight and maintains flex.
Surf hardware have tested The FCS II Fin System over 4,000+ cycles (installing & then removing the fin), so under normal usage/conditions, the FCS II system will well and truely outlast the life of the board.
