2018 SIC Bayonet 14'
After years of shaping, testing, racing and creating world-class
watercraft, Raaphorst took all of this cumulative knowledge into the
shaping bay and what came out was the Bayonet 14.0 and Bayonet
17.1. A sleek, narrow and super-fast downwind board that worked
amazing in sub-twenty knot conditions and increased top end
speed in all conditions. This board does not have F.A.S.T. for 2018.
As many downwind races in the 14.0 class are fixed-fin, we opted
to leave F.A.S.T. off to make sure the board is as light as possible.
This board features a higher bow volume, lowered deck standing
area and balanced outline. The board has a balanced outline and
wider tail to enhance rail-to-rail stability.
The Bayonet Series is not a progression from the Bullet 14.0 v2 /
Bullet 17.1, it is an extension, a derivative of its world-class next
of kin, the Bullet. The Bayonet was tweaked and tuned to meet the
needs of the SIC team and elite downwind paddlers around the
world. With a focus on early planing capability and increasing top-
end speed, the Bayonet will surely continue SIC’s legacy of having
the fastest downwind boards in the world. The Bullets remain
without a doubt some of the fastest downwind boards in the world,
however, comparatively are wider and therefore are for paddlers
who want speed without giving up rail-to-rail stability.
The Bayonet is shaped with a flat bottom (planing hull) and is
offered in a 14.0 length without F.A.S.T, however, comes stock
with a 12k carbon Weedless fin and is constructed in SCC+ (Single
Carbon Composite + InnegraTM) construction. The Bayonet 17.1
is built with DCC+ (Double Carbon Composite + InnegraTM) for a
super stiff and durable hull. Also equipped with F.A.S.T and a 12K
carbon weedless fin. Both sizes feature an EZ-Grab carry handle,
leash plug in the tail and GoPro mount on the nose.
