SIC Bayonet 14' x 24.5
The Bayonet Series is not a replacement for the Bullet Series; it is an evolution with a focus on taking all that is good in the Bullet and pushing the limits of what is possible in the Bayonet. With the intended paddler being more accomplished and likely a competitive paddler and/or serious touring and fitness paddler. The Bayonet is the answer to the demands of our elite team and focuses on early planing capability and top-end speed.
The Bayonet continues SIC’s legacy of having the fastest downwind boards in the world. These boards plane early in sub twenty mph winds, and stay on glide longer, edge well in cross chop and have tremendous rail-to-rail steering when on a bump or wave. They do take a bit more agility with the squarer rail shape which promote stability on the narrow widths. The have a bit less under tuck and therefore are not as forgiving as the Bullets. The lower rocker profile means that the boards are extremely fast at low speed but do require a bit more agility to maneuver back to the tail when on plane and to mitigate nose poke.

About the Bayonet
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 2019. 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.
