Tricoil Technology:
The FCS H-3 Nexus features Tricoil Technology, a dynamics flex that effectively stores and releases energy as the surfer transitions from one turn into the next. This transition between turns is where most surfers struggle to maintain speed. FCS believes they've solved this problem by designing a fin with a highly efficient template, material stability, minimal drag characteristics, and above all, unparalleled flex properties.
From the moment you ride the FCS H-3 Nexus you'll realize this fin has something special. Whether your surfing tight in the pocket or carving on the open face, you can surf confidently knowing all the elements of the fin are working in synergy to deliver the ultimate advantage, more speed. The performance of H-3 Nexus is seamless; yet quite deliberate in the way it feels.

Flex; Tricoil
The FCS H3 Nexus fins feature Tricoil technology which is the latest development in fin flex. It draws on the material lay-up of the fin, the cambered foil, and the overall fin template. The result is a multi-directional flex pattern. This unique flex pattern allows the FCS H3 Nexus to "load-up" and flex under pressure, and then de-coil once the pressure is released. Ultimately the H3 stores energy during the transition between turns and then gives it back to the surfer in the form of speed and acceleration. The feeling cam be compared to a slingshot, or whipping effect as the surfer enters and then exits through the turning arc.

Foil; Super Efficient
The FCS Nexus Fins features a highly efficient foil, which can be the defining element that makes for exceptional fin performance. The highly cambered foil in the base of the H3 Nexus provides drive and hold. while the low cambered foil in the tip provides stability and allows the fin to release with control, even when the FCS H3 Nexus is pushed to the limits. This cambered foil on the H3 also increases the fins stall angle which helps to produce down-the-line speed and maintain projection through the entire turning arc.

Template; Low Aspect w/ Elliptical Template
The FCS H3 Nexus features an efficient, low aspect ratio elliptical template. The long base increases drive, while the moderate volume in the tip enhances the flex and coil characteristics, and the smooth transitional trailing edge reduces water separation, which is traditional linked to cavitation. What this means for you is that the FCS H3 Nexus fins will provide increased speed and drive through minimal water disturbance.

Construction; Bi-axial Carbon and Uni-directional Kevlar
With the FCS H3 Nexus it's easy to see how technology and performance overlap. Structurally, the H3 Nexus draws on a combination of engineered Bi-axial Carbon and Uni-directional Kevlar to achieve the TRICOIL flex pattern. The Uni-directional carbon base of the H3 further increases stiffness in the base of the fin, and helps to distribute pressure away from the plugs by reducing the twisting forces on the fin tabs. The Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) process delivers consistency across manufacturing and guarantees the integrity of the flex and foils. Last, epoxy resin is used, giving strength and material stability to the FCS H3 Nexus, while the lightweight molded PU core further reduces the overall weight of the fin.
