SIC RS 12'6

Short for “Rocket Ship,” the RS Series is proving to be one of fastest all-water
race boards in the world. We have developed and tested these shapes starting at
Pacific Paddle Games 2016 and have made countless prototypes, refining and
honing in on the perfect design characteristics. In 2017 all the R&D culminated
into final prototypes that would be put to the test in technical, long distance,
sprint, and downwind races in order to validate that the RS is one of the fastest,
most well rounded, all water race boards in the world. This board has been a top
finisher against the world’s elite paddlers in races such as the Olukai, Association
of Paddlesurf Professionals Tour - Ho’okipa Beach on Maui, the Carolina Cup
and on The Euro Tour. These boards have been tested more than any other race
board in SIC’s history. The RS has proven to be race ready and will surely take
you to the top of your game and the front of the pack.

Aside from racing, the team has had a lot of fun on the wider width models,
testing them in a variety conditions, touring and blasting downwind runs with
friends. The shape and various widths and volumes have proven to be amazing
for performance cruising, recreational fitness and touring. Offered in 7 sizes - 3
widths in the RS 12.6 (23.5, 25.0, 270,) and 4 widths in the 14.0 (23, 24.5, 26.0,
28.0). These boards will replace the majority of the previously offered X Pro and
X Pro-Lite as well as FX and FX Pro series boards.

Technology

The RS Series is comes in an SCC+ (Single Carbon Composite + InnegraTM)
construction. A perfect balance of overall volume and foam distribution; the
more voluminous bow keeps the board from purling when paddling downwind
and through chop. The center-line running down the foredeck sheds water
quickly from the deck; geometrically it helps to stiffen the board, which
further contributes to the board’s speed. The midsection has a slightly dug out
cockpit in the standing area, positioning the paddler closer to the waterline for
enhancing stability and power to the board. The cockpit transitions to flat as
you move to the tail for unimpeded movement when you step back to pivot
turn or when standing on the tail on a downwind run. A wide tail provides for
greater stability rail-to-rail and the tail does not bob up and down when paddling
with a high cadence stroke. One of the most noticeable design characteristics
is the channel on the bottom of the board. This helps to create high pressure
under the board, further enhancing stability, directing water flow over the fin
and promotes a straighter line through the water, as a straight line is the fastest
distance between two points. The boards come complete with EZ-Grab handle,
12K carbon Weedless fin, two race handles, leash plugs for your bungee tie
downs and leash attachments on the tail or in front of the standing area.
