Radinn’s X-Sport Electric Surfboard Is Built To Tackle Rough Waters – Robb Report

0

Radinn has staked its rep on creating tough electric surfboards that can cruise anywhere from icy fjords to the beach, but the company says its latest model is the toughest yet.

New X-Sport is designed to be a durable, lightweight motorized jetboard that can accommodate all kinds of adventures. Like its predecessors, the X-Sport has a sleek silhouette and a hydrodynamic design to help it cut through the waves. The Swedish outfit says it’s made for everyone and for every body of water.

Spanning just over 6ft, the hull of the X-Sport features Radinn’s new XDL Tech construction. The board has a ventilated polystyrene core which is reinforced with layers of fiberglass and polymer to maximize strength while remaining compact, comfortable and lightweight. (It’s around the 100-pound mark with the electric motor equipped.)

“There are many layers of fiberglass in different places to achieve optimal durability in those specific parts of the board,” said Martin Malmqvist, Product Manager at Radinn. Robb Report. “So it has the cosmetic durability to resist scratches and scuffs and those kinds of imperfections, and it also has the durability of impact if you hit something or drop it.”

The X-Sport is equipped with four fins for more stability.

The new addition is also the only one in the Radinn lineup to have a quad fin setup instead of the usual two. The added fins serve to make the X-Sport more stable on the water. According to Radinn, this makes the board a good choice for beginners who have balance issues and experienced riders who want to go all out in even the toughest conditions.

When it comes to grunt, you can opt for Radinn’s standard “Jetpack” which promises speeds of up to 27mph or the pro version which propels the board up to 35mph at full lean.

You can also choose to upgrade the battery for extended battery life. As standard, the 2.5 kWh battery will give you around 25 minutes on the water, while the 3 kWh option powers the board for 45 minutes.

This puts the pro X-Sport ahead of its competitors in terms of speed, if not range. For comparison, the $12,935 Fliteboard electric hydrofoil can cruise up to 28 mph for 1.5 hours, while YuJet’s $10,000 Surfer can run at a top speed of 24 mph for 40 minutes.

As for price, the X-Sport starts below its two rivals at $9,345. Adding the pro jetpack and 3kWh battery cost an additional $1,850 respectively. That means the top of the line will set you back $12,145, but, hey, think of all the fun you’ll have on the waves.
