Recently i got my hands on a Rockstar Speed 48cm custom approx 66L.
and a Monster 62.5cm approx.95liter.
Cant wait to step on the gas and see if i finally (after 7 years) i can improve my PR's.
Techtalk: from its shaper
'' The front section is designed for early planing. The deep V-section in the middle pushes air underneath the hull, lifting the board into a plane.
The mid-section is designed to absorb the energy from choppy water, allowing the rider to go faster in average conditions. The super straight rails in the mid section provide a very stable platform to push against when going upwind.
The back section is designed for high top-end speed by minimizing drag.
board range the idea was: control = speed. Speed sailing is where mXr’s has its roots. We are a GPS-based brand, not a PWA-based brand. You can design the theoretically fastest board on earth but it will only be as fast as the conditions will allow it to be. The end speed also depends for a great deal on the rider’s level, as any design will be faster in hands of the better rider after all. We focused on a board that was designed for control and ease of use combined with a very high performance/speed potential.''
'' Front X-Steps
These X-Steps are pointed forward. They mark a clear break with the middle section and release the water flow. This helps to start planing over the front foot and the cross steps contribute to a relaxed ride. In jibes both front steps release water more easily, resulting in less drag and more control through high speed turns. At the exit of the gibe the rider can put his feet and/or weight forward and rely on the excellent planing characteristics of the front section at lower speeds. Acceleration is smooth but extreme with the right technique. The steps will support any rider from amateur up until PWA pros to increase overall gibing speed. Back X-Steps
These X-Steps steps are pointed backward and help release the water flow at higher speeds. Effectively, there is less pressure on the fin. The back X-Steps support the hull at high speed. When gusts hit, the board time and again auto-trims itself due to the back steps. Especially lighter and/or less technical riders will experience a lot more control at high speeds compared to normal boards as a result of this. When gibing the back step’s winger grips like thruster fins. The board never loses grip and the step takes over some of the work a fin normally has to do.''
mXr Monster, that one we took to the ulitmate test aswell. It has a high speed potential, nice float, My daughter loved the dutch flag colours too :-)
