World Cup slalom meets performance freeride. The design mandate was to create a high-performance slalom style board that behaved more
like a performance freeride board in the manoeuvres and with excellent overall stability to enhance the user experience on the water. Presto, we
introduce the all new Revo for 2018, which combines the use of our proven fast WCSL scoop-rocker lines in all models combined with a host of
new features that enables the rider to experience the thrill of true slalom speed, whilst being in complete control and comfort!
TThe revolutionary all-new ’HydroPlane’ bottom shape concept
: The nose starts flat with no vee to sit the board square in the water maximising the planing surface at low speeds, which quickly transitions into a significant vee planform with a very deep double concave under
the mast track area. This helps hydrodynamically channel the water towards the tail of the board before planing and aerodynamically channels
the air of the board after planing. Towards the tail the strong vee quickly transitions into an inverted vee shape between the feet, this keeps the
outside rail line in the ‘water power zone’ straighter than a normal vee board, which we found drastically increases the control and side-to-side
stability at speed. Feeling is believing!
‘UltraTuck’ all-new rail design concept
: During the development process the more tuck we tested, the better the boards performed, in
particular with incredibly easy gybing and overall comfort especially in choppy conditions. So the final designs incorporated almost as much
bottom rail tuck as the 5-axis machine would comfortably shape. Whilst the top rail shape is a gentle sloping dome that is very comfortable to
step anywhere on the upper deck whether during planing or non-planing conditions.
‘Freerace Vector Cuts’
: Tail cutouts are here to stay in all future windsurfing flatwater board designs regardless of category. The overall performance gain is unmistakable not only with basic points like less spinouts, but they help initiate the required release around the fin to get planing
earlier and accelerate effortlessly. Once planing the cutouts significantly reduce the amount of back leg pressure that always increases with speed.
The Revo tail cutouts have a similar design style to the Performa freeride models, but with more release and built in acceleration/speed, whilst at
the same time still having enough grip and low-end power to accommodate the competitive freerace market. The inside cutouts end parallel to
the front of the fin box and the performance critical ‘fin plate’ zone next to the fin is reduced in area compared to the Performa, resulting in higher
speeds. Additionally the entire cutout system is single level at 10mm deep, which is the ideal compromise compared to our double level full on
racing World Cup slalom style cut outs concept.
‘FFoil Proof’ fin box
(on all models): Our exclusive layup foil box is as strong as it gets whilst still being lightweight. You can feel confident to
put any foil in any wind into all models of our Revo Pro and GLS version boards.
THE R&D RESULT
- Faaast and easy! We were pleasantly surprised to see in the head-to-head testing that the 2018 Revo was only very slightly
slower than our proven fast 2017 WCSL models, but at the same time exhibiting such an easy ride that gybes incredibly well!
If you are in the hunt for a board that delivers high-end slalom type performance, whilst remaining calm and stable on the
water, and furthermore executing gybes and maneauvers effortlessly, then the 2018 Revo is the right choice for you
