“Mind-blowing performance for whitewater paddling” 

Wider squarer nose improves stability to ride even more extreme and challenging river runs.
New 10’11”x31” narrow outline makes it our fastest river racer.
Standing tray with built up EVA sidewalls allows riders to use the slight rail to wedge their feet for additional support in tough conditions.
New deep diamond grooving in the standing area increases traction with less risk of slipping off when wearing footwear.
Ultra strong & extra reinforced US centre fin box.

11' x 34 10'11" x 31" 9'6" x 36"

Shape:
Longer models offer faster glide for river racing, while the 9’6” is more maneuverable and reactive for technical courses. 6” thick gives stiffness and volume to handle steep drops.
Conditions:
From entry level slow running rivers up to progressive fast flowing rapids.

Key Features:

  • Multiple reinforced carry handles on all corners for easy access ack onto the board
  • Convenient bungee ties down on the nose for carrying essential gear.
  • Extra durable double layer skin deck and bottom for greater impact resistance from hitting rocks in the rivers.
  • Shallow white-water fins optimizes tracking and turning with minimal drag and risk of hitting obstacles in shallow water.
  • Centre Ph-River fin improves tracking.

11' x 34" Dedicated river racing performance (recommended for UK conditions)

Suited to riders up to 115 kg, 11’0”x34” has more glide than the 9’6” and is more stable than the 10’11”, making it a stable and fast river racer. New wider nose, inspired from the Hyper Nut, boosts stability and helps the board pop back up when submerging the nose in steep drops.

10' x 31" Dedicated river racing performance

The new 10’11” is slightly shorter than the 11’0” but significantly narrower at 31”. This narrowness reduces the surface area, reducing drag and increasing the overall glide and top speed. The wide tail is stable to step back and manoeuvre, while the pulled in nose is all about efficiency and speed.

9'6" x 36" Mind-blowing performance for whitewater paddling

Short, compact and stable, the 9’6” is designed to manoeuvre the most technical river runs. The 9’6” accommodates up to 105kg and will take first timers from navigating basic class 1 and 2 rapids up to advanced white-water performance. A new wider and squarer shaped nose increases stability to handle bigger drops and more extreme river runs. The tail is marginally wider to give more stability when stepping back to turn. Increased nose rocker stops the nose from diving and helps safely drop into steeper runs

A great sensation while paddling: The triple-sandwich rail laminate acts as dual stringer stiffeners and also make the rails incredibly strong. We replace double PVC layers with twin 2000 denier deck and bottom stringers, providing the board that rigid, crisp and stiff feel.

Clean Technology: The lamination process uses minimal glue and solvent and packing of the board is free of plastic.

Faster board inflation, with less effort: The benchmark V8 flow valve gets you to 15–18 PSI faster and with less effort.

The exclusive and innovative heavy duty Blue Chip non snagging coil leash plus the exclusive Blue Chip White Water Quick Release waist belt will be your best paddling partner in white water conditions.
