The Pro Race Foilboard is our high performance race machine for all who want a Board with no compromises. Everything on this Board is custom and handmade by Riftboards. Riftboard uses only the best materials available for the Pro Race Bord.
We tested a lot of different shapes and rocker lines during the last four years. We worked together with some pro riders from the World Race Tour, kite Designers and the Swiss Kiterace Team. Due to the fact of many feedbacks Riftboards could make the best working Rockerline for the Pro Race. Compared to other brands we have a little more Rocker. This helps to kick the Board on the foil with out slowing down because it rolls in the water. An other effect is the "neutral water touch". When you touch the water during a course race the board won't bounce up. You almost don't feel the touch because the board don't touches in the front and bounce off, it touches between the feet and at the end of the Board and that gives you a neutral touch. So you don't have any troubles when touching the water.
You might have heard about the Beluga Nose before. Riftboards isn't the inviter of the Beluga Nose but we were the first one on the market where you can buy a Board with this Nose. To find out what this Nose can read this Blog here.
We do not make the lightest boards of all but for sure the strongest. Our Boards are around 2.8kg and constructed in a full double carbon Sandwich construction. Even the rails are shaped in a 10mm Airex Sandwich construction. If you want you can take a hammer and test the board by yourself. We tested it and you need a very hard hit to get through the board. So at the end your board won't last only one season. It will last many years!
Box / Rails
Almost everything is possible. The standard Box is a parallel cutted Tuttle Box. This Box is cutted at 43mm so every Mikes Lab Foil and Chubanga Foil (you have to order the cutted version) will fit in the Box. This thinner Box gives you a better angle over the foil and you can push harder and have more control. The thinner board allows flatter bevel which are much more forgiven when touching the water.
It is also possible to have the Pro Board with a normal Tuttle Box or with Rails or with Tuttle and Rails. With the normal Tuttle Box, the Board is 2cm thicker and the Rockerline is a little bit flatter.
Pad / Grip
Under the Straps we use a thin, high performance EVA Pad from FCS wich gives you a super feedback over the Foil. Between the Straps the Board has a custom Grip wich is not to sharp for your feet. If you want you can have the Board complete with Pad or only with the custom Grip. It is your choice.
To make the Boards smaller for better upwind angle Riftboards designed a special V-Strap for the front foot. To get more Infos about the Straps, click here
