R55 e – Speedboard USA

The 2013 board line-up has been designed to bring the all out speed you expect from Speedboard USA designs and some additional ”tweeks” to make them perform better. All of the boards feature a slightly raised foredeck to create a sharper “spill angle” for waves, low wind signature and greater rigidity. Enhanced rail thickness at the shoulder and our “wishbone” deck shape further add to the stiff flex profile of these boards. Stiffer is faster.  ENJOY!!!

The 18’- R55 e represents the latest advancement from Speedboard. Vacuum Molded pre -preg, oven cured carbon fiber and honeycomb core technology are used to construct this space age hull. Rigid, ultra-light and finished to exacting standards the R55e sets the new benchmark in distance SUP boards. We should call it the “mamba” as it glides so silent and fast. Whether you are looking for the ultimate distance board or seeking a new way to enjoy long adventures on the water, this is your board.
