NeilPryde Intros the CR:X One Design

NeilPryde is delighted to announce the expansion of its one-design program into kite racing with the introduction of CR:X, the world’s first one-design kite racing class.

The CR:X is an innovative, versatile kite racing platform that features a convertible board which may be switched between Twin Tip and Foil modes. Multiple modes means that the same set of equipment can be used by beginners through to more advanced foil racers, and in a wide range of weather conditions.

NeilPryde’s mission is to create a community of kite racing enthusiasts of all levels and abilities and enable them to race on a level and affordable playing field.

“We are very excited about this project,” said Mike Raper, NeilPryde One-Design Kites Division Manager. “NeilPryde has a long heritage in racing and one-design classes, being the supplier to World Sailing and the Olympic Games with its RS:X windsurfing class and 49er and 29er sailing classes.”

The CR:X has been officially approved by World Sailing as a recognized WS Class, subject to fulfilling regulation 10.2.1(d) at the mid-year meeting in May 2017.
