The rise of a new Watersport - Wingfoil

In 2019, the new water sport wingfoiling is hitting like a bomb. Boards & More is at the forefront with the Fanatic and Duotone brands and is doing valuable pioneering work. This results in market leadership, which contributes significantly to the value of the Boards & More company.
SQLab

Acquisition of the brand SQ-Lab

In 2021, the brand SQ-Lab was acquired, which is the market leader for ergonomics in cycling. The goal is to realise several larger projects that have been in the works for a long time in order to further anchor Boards & More in the bicycle market.
