DL HD DOUBLE LAYER HEAVY DUTY TECHNOLOGY
This construction is built to last and is ideal for heavy duty usage. The triple layer rail construction gives better stiffness and durability. This technology can take more than 20psi of air pressure if needed and guarantees stiffness and performance.
You will find this technology in the Rapid Air, Rapid Air Touring, Ripper Air WS, Viper Air WS, Tandem Air Premium, making these boards bulletproof, super stable and providing the ultimate in performance.
STR STRINGER TECHNOLOGY
Using the best drop-stitch material available on the market their stringer technology provides the perfect durability: weight : price ratio.
This technology is found in their Fly Air, Diamond Air, Diamond Air Touring, Ray Air and Fly Air Fit which all benefit from outstanding rigidity without additional air pressure whilst ensuring fast and easy inflate/deflate functions and effortless transportation.
