The Benchmark incorporates a rocker line, flex pattern, and outline that our International Team Rider Gisela Pulido fines perfect for her aggressive riding style. At Liquid Force Kites, we make boards for people, which is why this shape and design is completely unisex (like all of our boards). While the shape was designed for the top level rider in the world, it is at the same time forgiving enough to inspire progression. Utilizing the same core profiling technique as the Echo, the Benchmark has been created with a solid wood core that has a single concave to channel tips that smooths out the harsh chop and make upwind pointing simple. Rounding out the board is a sandwich glass construction and capped with Liquid Rail for durability.
