Imperator 7

Core have just released the IMPERATOR 7. Engineered on Fehmarn and passionately handcrafted with state-of-the-art technology and materials. The all-new Cartan 2 powered Imperator 7 is their lightest and most responsive unibody twintip ever.

Cartan 2, as it’s called, combines untwisted, unidirectional carbon fiber strands with minimal epoxy binders into a thin, flat, 30° scrim matching the exact board size. The evenly distributed, very straight fibers result in a composite laminate with a lighter, more uniform microstructure than those produced using conventional woven-fabric pre-pregs. The Imperator’s improved filament-to-filament load transfer results in an incredibly energetic Gen7 that’s 100g lighter.


The symphonic performance of Paulownia, Cartan 2, and 20 years of development delivers its signature ride.  Expect the smoothest carves, the highest torsional stability, and incredible reflexivity even in massive chop. Allround comfort in all conditions and nothing but.


The distinctive deep-vee keel keeps the Imperator 7 confidently on course – especially in chop and strong winds. Hand-finished rails feature slightly sharper, drag-reducing, tucked under rail profile. The double concave Vee cuts through the roughest chop and delivers incredible grip and poise. Transitioning the double concaves into mono concave tips improves takeoff.
