Neil Pryde promises that the new RS:X Evolution windsurfing kit is the best upgrade ever made in the Olympic concept.
The brand has developed a lighter board which will perform as fast as the Formula or large Slalom boards and will remain the cheapest sailing boat with the most consistent performance within the Olympic sailing scene.
Also a new updated more powerful rig, with a bigger wind range and featuring an extremely colorful fresh new look. The idea is to get the new equipment ready for the 2016 Olympics, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
After a successful Games campaign in Quingdao, China and five years of relentless and non-stop world-wide service, the improvements, achieved by using the latest technologies and overbuild reduction, will turn RS:X into the most attractive sailing class and will continue to help the growth of Olympic Windsurfing.
"Our world is evolving. Our sport is evolving. Our athletes are evolving. We have to evolve and keep up with the pace", says Neil Pryde.
The RS:X Evolution concept will be showcased in RS:X Evolution Grand Prix's held in major World cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, New York etc. where the top 10 RS:X Athletes will be selected to race a new course format that is more dynamic and attractive.
The first stop will merge with the RS:One World Tour in Singapore, on January 17th.
