RS:X Windsurfing Board and Sail Rig by Neil Pryde
Jack of All Trades; Performance in All Wind Conditions
We have the RS:X in stock at Todo Vela Mexico, ready for immediate delivery. We do not sell boats and boards via this website, because we sell each board with the exact configuration that you want. Please contact us so we can send you a detailed quote with exactly the options that you need.
The ObjectiveTo develop a board that offers exciting Formula Windsurfing planing performance, while
Used in one-design International RS:X Class Association events. At these events the NeilPryde RS:X fins supplied with the board, 66 cm for men & 60 cm for women,

In downwind conditions, with the daggerboard up for going downwind,
In planing conditions, the board behaves largely like a Formula Windsurfing board, thus giving much faster performance and a more exciting ride.
In downwind conditions, with the adjustable mast track set to the back, the board sails both with good speed and a very steep angle.
The sail chosen for the Olympics must have a huge wind range of 3-30 knots, when used with the RS:X board. Great low-end performance should ensure that the board planes as soon as possible and provides good speed and acceleration in sub-planing conditions. While the sail should have a locked-in "high performance" feel, it should also feel softer for easier handling in light wind conditions.
RS:X Mast is based closely on the masts used in NeilPryde windsurfing's existing mast range. The RS:X is a 90-100% carbon mast that has the same bend curves and tapers as the NeilPryde Progressive Flex bend curve. The RS:X is a high performance mast designed to work in all wind conditions, both planing and non-planing.Reduced diameter for ideal strength/weight/reflex ratio.Progressive flex allows the sail to twist as dynamically and efficiently as possible.The light weight of 2.2 - 2.4 kg maximizes the low end performance and ease of turning.Carbon content 490: 90%

The BoomThe RS:X Carbon Booms have been developed to
achieve the best light weight to stiffness ratio
available in the market today.Standard diameter hand grip and oversized tail end for optimum stiffness in the longer lengths.Outhaul kit set Booms are supplied with an adjustable outhaul system for maximum tuning range and instant outhaul trimming while sailing.Oversized mast cup increases the contact area onto the mast resulting in stiffer, wider, safer load distribution and more direct transmission of power from the boom through the mast and onto the board. Mast cup constructed in carbon for light weight and stiffness.Twin Pin Trim Lock Adjustment System. The Twin Pin design provides optimal load distribution and a stiff connection between the boom body and tail end.Carbon Monocoque (1 piece) boom body for increased stiffness and smoother transmission of the power from the rig through to the board. One piece construction eliminates the play between the joints and reduces the point loading at the screws.Monocoque carbon tail extension
