CR:X Neilpryde One-Design Board
The CR:X board is unique & innovative within kitesurfing as the first board to be truly convertible between twin tip and hydrofoil racing.
THE CONVERTIBLE CONCEPT
The CR:X board has been designed to be ridden in two distinctly different modes for varying conditions and race formats.
Twin Tip Mode
This setup allows the board to be used as a normal, bi-directional kiteboard. The board is designed to be used by kiteboarders of all skill levels: from beginners all the way up to twin tip racers. The twin tip mode is best suited for stronger winds, course racing or compact boardercross race formats.
In this setup, the board is fitted with a hydrofoil package lifting the board and rider up above the water. Due to the efficiency of a hydrofoil this mode is ideal for light winds, upwind/downwind course racing and long distance races. The hydrofoil brings a higher level of excitement but also technicality to the CR:X package. Athletes need to have experience handling the board in twin tip mode, before progressing to the hydrofoil.
The board has a moderate rocker line with a modern straight outline, suitable for the first time rider through to a top end racer. The stance widths and binding positions can be adjusted to accommodate a range of athlete weights and sizes. The board's core is made from a sustainable Paulownia wood, with tough hard wearing ABS rails and a durable fibreglass laminate. The board has a stiff flex characteristic, ideal for both the twin tip or hydrofoil modes.
