The Pace pro

Info: Riftboards is still testing the Version for the Chubanga V3. The final prototypes are almost ready.  Please notice that the Board for Chubanga will be completely different in the Shape and can not be used for other foils.

 

During the Summer we made a lot of thinking, testing, discussions, photo and video analysis, beer drinking and enjoying the time in the Swiss Alps. So there have to bee some new and crazy Ideas for a Board. The first thing we needed to change was the Rocker Line. Because the new Olympic Foils were a little bit different compare to the older Models. But we really liked the feeling of the old Rocker Line so we had the idea of making a longer Beluga Nose where you can stand on. But then we realized that we are going to have problems with the Rails. This new construction was not possible, unless we keep the shape of the Rail and only bring the Toes a bit more up to get the feeling of the old rocker again. 

So the next day we shaped a piece of Airex and mounted it under the Straps to get the feeling of the new idea. And it was breath taking. From the first meters on the Foil we knew that this was a big step forward. We had much more control. Tacks and Jibes were easier and faster and when we had ventilations, he had more control oder the Foil. And we noticed as well, that we didn't use as much muscle power as we needed before during the ride. So the Pace Pro was born. 

 

Shape

For 2021, we changed the Rockerline a little bit that the new Board will fit perfect for the Olympic Foils. Thanks to the new Rockerline we could also improve 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. 

  

Construction

Due to a new carbon fiber layup, new sandwich construction and a new Tuttle Box Riftboards could make the Boards stronger and lighter. We are now at 2.4kg with Pad and Straps. 

We only use the best Materials for our Boards and everything is made in a professional Sandwich Construction.  

 

Box / Rails

Almost everything is possible. The standard is a parallel cutted Tuttle Box. This Box is cutted at 43mm so almost every new Foil 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. The position of the Box is custom made and changes on the riders weight. So let me know your Foil and your weight.

 

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 we use Hexagon Pads wich you will find all over the World in some Surfshops or in the Internet. So when your Pad is loosing grip, you can easy replace it. 

 

Straps

To make the Boards smaller for better upwind angle Riftboards designed a special V-Strap for the front foot
