When creating the Pro Series hull we took everything to the next level. We pride ourselves on being the forefront of innovation and that is why we took everything previously known and started from scratch. CAD.. Unlike other brands we designed everything in CAD and CNC produced our patterns to give every part precision fitment. Designing in CAD also allows us to produce what others cant.
First of we wanted to design something unique, not only in looks, but also in its performance.
At first glance you will see the striking lines and angles on the hull. You will notice the minimalistic bond rails to create a unique design to the hull. The underside of the bond rail is designed with a 45 degree angle to help release friction when leaving the water and also adds stability. You will notice the very rear of the bond rail incorporates a kick at the rear and also narrows off the water channel. Not only does the angle help release from the water but the narrowed rear causes a positive pressure to create a lift that helps reduce sinking between tricks and makes riding out from tricks much easier.
The rear end of the ski also features a 45 degree kick on the chimes to help backflip motions. Not only is it angled 45 degrees vertically for flips, it is angled 45 degree horizontally to make barrel rolling motions effortless and much faster.
The pump mounting location of the hull has been widened to allow for easier access to fit cables and water hoses.
The bottom deck was completely re designed. This is much wider overall than most other hulls to increase stability and also to increase the surface area on water increasing “POP” when landing from trick to trick.
The main bottom deck chines have been made much shallower to decrease the friction in the water which again optimises trick to trick combos.
The Pump intake area has been specifically designed and tested for maximum flow and increased water volume allowing for maximum hook up.
The Rocker on the nose is unique to any other and could possibly be the greatest asset of the Revolver. Rather than an aggressive Rocker, the Revolver stands with a much longer but smoother transition to allow for the nose to rotate faster allowing the rider to alter the whole characteristics of the hull by simply moving their weight backwards and forward.
The tray area has been designed so that each hull can be fitted with a range of 140mm to170mm Pumps. This design allows the stance position on the hull to be dropped deeper into the tray, lowering the rider’s centre of gravity. By having their stance position lower than the main tray area, it allows the rider’s feet to have maximum grip.
The pump has also been set forward in the hull rather than set back, leaving the overall steering nozzle length closer to the back of the hull creating more responsive and faster steering on the ski
An extremely important factor of this hull when designing was to not have a hull that was uncomfortable to ride and ride nose high. The hull has been designed with the rider in mind and creates a stable natural riding stance:
The foot hole system has been designed to be mounted closer to the front of the tray. Together with the handle pole mounting point being moved closer to the centre of the hull, creates a much tighter centre of rotation. Imagine trying to spin a pencil? By holding it in the centre, it will spin much faster than holding it at each end and trying to make it spin. Using this theory and making the axis point nearer to the centre of the hull, reduces the rider’s fight against gravity.
The engine has also been raised inside the hull, to avoid this being a “dead weight” in the bottom. Combined with the above theory, this brings the rotational mass to the centre, creating a smoother and faster rotation.
The hood system has not only been designed to be extremely sleek but also incorporates a ‘Skin’ which allows the hood to be used as secondary air intake therefore not relying on the air intake of the handle pole. Another important factor of the hood for freestyle is keeping water out.
The Revolver’s hood has been made bullet proof from water ingress. If only the Titanic had the Revolver’s technology! The design gives the rider not just one seal but the option of using up to 3 hood seals. It really is the ultimate freestyle hood!
All the features have been through an extensive test procedure which leaves my clients with what I believe is the ULTIMATE freestyle ski on the market today.
Our intake grate was also a truly unique redesign. Traditional intake grates with a front and rear bar work great in straight lines but suffer on turns causing a barrier down the centre to full load the pump efficient with water. So not only did we solve that issue but we also saved weight with our carbon fibre intake grate. Removable and no front and rear mounting thanks to our centre fitment design.
