The All-New Turtle Bay R-14
The All-New 2022 Turtle Bay R-14 Race Series.
This year sees the return of the R-14, however it is now lighter and more rigid, meaning it is even more competitive than its predecessor and that was a fast board!
The R-14 is available in 3 widths, 23", 25" & 27". If you would like any advice on which board will suit you best, please do get in touch. We don't just sell boards, they are our passion. We paddle them and race them!
The R-14 Race Series is constructed with our very own double layer heat fused pvc dropstitch. This ensures consistency in materials, giving our boards the strength and performace you would expect from a premium inflatable Raceboard.
- Double Skin Heat Fused Dropstitch.
- Central Stringer Band.
- Rigidity with18-22+ psi.
- High Grip & Comfort Deckpad.
- Central and Race Start Handles.
- Front Deck Storage .
- Front & Rear Camera Mounts.
The heat fused double skin drop stitch offers great rigidity while keeping the board lightweight and incredibly durable. The high pressure valve combined with the central stringer adds to the R-14's rigidity, The better the rigidity, the faster the board will be!
The Race Start handles are perfect for sprint starts at the beach, or dashing by at the portage during a river race. While you may not need the storage bungees on shorter sprint races (the straps can be removed), they are a necessity for distance and endurance racing, and a huge added bonus for training sessions.
Action Camera mounts are located by the nose and tail, allowing you to record your race from a number of angles. This is also a great aid for monitoring your race technique and helps to ensure that changes you make to your stroke are effective.
The R-14 comes complete with the Turtle Bay wheeled storage bag, dual stage pump, fin (US fin box), leash & repair kit.
