    Introducing

    RRP-Rickter FS2 EVO 1

    RRP has been keeping a secret from the world throughout the last year. After hundreds of hours of development and testing, we are proud to present the FS2-EVO 1, the next generation in Rickter hulls.
    With the ever-changing watercraft market, it is vital to constantly try new things and always improve on what is already out and the newest FS2 is a prime example of that. The FS2 is a versatile hull which is perfect for surf-riding, carving buoys, freestyle maneuvers, and even backflips for those daring enough to try.
    At RRP, we wanted the FS2-EVO 1 to look, as well as perform, better. The FS2 now more closely resembles the XFS with the signature lid-style hood, as well as major graphic changes including the large Rickter logo across the hull, and much sleeker upper deck lines to bring it all together.
    The new hull also includes many performance-enhancing features such as wider and more angled bond rails similar to that on the XFS. This allows you to carve and hold your line with ease as well as promote stability. We have created a new pump intake duct which allows the pump to stay loaded and aid in sharp carving ability, similar to that which you would find on heavier race-inspired hulls. For the big freestyle tricks such as backflips, we have altered the nose to allow for a better "pop" when launching off setup wakes and aids in preventing the nose to catch the waves when surfriding . The final modification we have made is the removable sponsons which allow to you customize your riding and switch between surf and flat water riding, making the FS2 a most versatile hull on the market . When the sponsons are installed it applies more pressure to the nose, keeping it planted for freeriding through the surf or racing around buoys. If you want to practice your backflips and other freestyle tricks on flat water, simple remove the sponsons and you are ready to go.
    Overall, the Rickter FS2-EVO 1 has transformed from a freeride-limited hull to a versatile, customizable ski that allows riders to reach their full potential in the sport, whether they are competing in freestyle ,freeride or just having fun.

    It turns much more aggressive , very smooth and predictable. Bottom turns like a dream and pearls even less with the nose lifted.
