RRD Ace V1 BLKRBN
PROGRAM: LIGHT WIND/STRAPLESS FREESTYLE SURF
Never worry about getting dealt a bad hand by mother nature when you are holding an Ace! The RRD Ace 5’2” is a freeride, flatwater board, that is fast and planes early, designed to make the most out of the least favourable conditions. Have a blast on small, mushy surf with this new, radical, retro-style shape. Need a board for light winds and mostly flat water but also shreds on waves? This is it! The wide outline and moderate volume allow this board to float you through the lulls or pump through a section to squeeze out an extra turn on that knee-high monster.
Compared to its predecessor, the Pop V2, the new and improved Ace 5’2” has a reduced thickness and thinner rails to really focus on increased manoeuvrability on the wave. Punch through waves better, gain more stability in white water, hold it together after a late entry off the lip, or sneak into the pocket when everyone is watching with the new ACE 5’2”.
In addition, the swallow tail and thinner rails will also improve this board’s pop potential. If learning strapless tricks is on the agenda, then this board will aid in your progression. The added manoeuvrability gained with this new shape, mixed with the light weight, will allow you to quickly pop off the water while providing a wide surface area to catch the wind and to land those strapless airs!
If the waves are small, the wind is light, or an easy to use, all-around ripper is needed in the quiver, then this is your ace in the hole!
- Lots of curve in the outline from nose to tail to create better manoeuvres and wave riding potential
- Mono-concave hull from nose to tail with slight tail kick release to improve control over choppy water and maximise pop
- Straighter rocker and nose lift to improve planing potential and top speed creating great pop
- Reduced thickness and thinner rails to focus on increased manoeuvrability.
Range of use
BLKRBN (Black Ribbon) TECHNOLOGY
Talking lightweight kitesurfboards towards a ridiculously light & strong level! The Black Ribbon technology is the first line of kitesurfboards in the world made with Aerospace technology!
The internal EPS core, with only 15 kg density, is extra compact by the use of a special mould. This unique mould creates a perfectly sealed surface where the epoxy resin penetrates the layup at just the right amount, creating the perfect bond between each layer, but not too excessively that would simply add weight and no specific structural strength.
For added reinforcements without significantly increasing weight, a 3 mm PVC foam layer is added on the deck to maximize impact resistance in addition to keeping the structure as light as possible while a full bamboo bottom sandwich layer creates the perfect blend between ding and dent strength on the bottom of the board. The entire structure is then fully covered with a complete layer of 160 grams Biaxial fibres combining a 45° mix between Carbon and Innegra fibres.
The new Black Ribbon construction provides a lightweight and strong kiteboard while maintaining a significant amount of flex compared to a full carbon layer.
