GT Performance Freerace
Couple years back, we introduced the Revo, 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.
The new GT series shape, is slightly longer and narrower to outline compared to the previous REVO as to boost extra directional stability to top speed in full control.
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 maneuvers effortlessly, then the Revo is your choice!
Bottom shape: The nose starts at with no vee to sit the board square in the water maximizing 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!
“Freerace Vector Cuts”: Tail cutouts are here to stay in all future windsurfing at water 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.
“Foil Proof” fin box (on all models): Our exclusive layup foil Tuttle 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.
Construction: A PVC double sandwich, with double thickness in the most stressed areas combined with Carbon/Innegra and Biax carbon full deck layup giving the boards the best result in terms of flex, light weight, strength and durability. Glass bottom with Carbon reinforcements on the tail area for max strength and stiffness on the foil-box area.
- CAD-CAM designed
- Full T700 biax carbon lightweight deck lamination layup for max. compression strength, performance and structural stability.
- 80 kg/m3 PVC full deck and bottom sandwich for a lightweight yet stiff construction.
- Double PVC sandwich under the heels and gybe area for sustained durability and strength.
- Additional high-strength reinforcements in all foot heel and high load areas (mast track, fin box, footstrap inserts).
