Andy Irons Signature Kinetic Racing Fins

Kinetic Racing is an ultra high-performance fin company. Their products are designed, tested, and used by some of the most influential surfers and shapers in the world. Kinetik Racing provides you with the exact same ultra high-end equipment that’s used by the best surfers in the world.

Recently got to ride a few of KR’s Andy Irons fin templates. They all work insane, and I’m psyched to recommend AI-1‘s in this feature. They come in both the Futures style “single tab” base, and the FCS “twin-tab” base, so you can get a set of KR’s to fit either fin box style.

AI-1, aka Andy Irons Signature CT fin, is part of Kinetic Racing’s Ultra Core collection, and is one of the most versatile fins in the KR range. AI-1 brings out the best in all performance  surfboards.  They work great in small and big waves, have incredible release, and stable drive with moderate flex.

What’s unique about the AI-1 is that it has carbon inserts which stiffen the fin base for drive, and honey comb Ultra Core through the fin tip, which allows for accurate flex and release.

AI-1‘s work best for surfers between 120 – 165lbs.

FRONT FIN:
BASE: 111 mm
HEIGHT: 116 mm
RAKE: 123º

BACK FIN:
BASE: 111 mm
HEIGHT: 116 mm
RAKE: 123º

It’s great that FCS and Futures Fins now have competition in the fin market. It seems as though the manufacturers are pushing each other harder than ever to create incredible materials and progressive templates, which amounts to surfers getting technical equipment pics.
