I think most companies are a little shy about the weights. They push how light and high tech their boards are, but ultimately there is a weight/strength trade off.

Firewire Vader Helium construction 5.1 = 2.7 kg (board naked, no pads, no fins)
Duotone ProWam 5.10 (2019) = 3.4 kg (Duotone Pro-Pad tail & front included, no fins)

The 5.1 Vader is a dream for strapless freestyle. Super robust, jumps super easy (wide tail), sticks to your feet while airborne like nothing else (large surface area, very light weight).

Thanks for the info. Can you tell me if the Magnet has more flex than other kitesurfboards from F-one, please? I mean if you put the board upside down on the floor and then press the middle of the board.

Thanks a lot!

Core vac Conduit kite version...is crazy light, super strong and flexes. Drawback is you have to wait a few weeks for him to make it. Best board ive ever owned and cheaper than production boards. Everything else feels heavy and stiff by comparison except the wave bandit. 😉
