The Royale Rand Spray Skirt
£159.00 inc VAT
The foundation of the Royale is our proprietary “fin” shaped rand designed to make maximum contact with the rim and resisting implosion to the very end. In addition to the rand shape, we also place two sticky rubber patches under the deck on the sides to provide additional implosion resistance. We also extended the deck neoprene 2″ past the rand to offer unsurpassed dryness on a variety of rim shapes. In the high wear areas we use the most expensive and strongest 4-way stretch kevlar we could find (the red material around the front), and all of the seams are glued, taped and stitched. We also have studied dozens and dozens of the most popular rims to dial in a fit that will accommodate a very wide range of boats. Does every paddler need an expensive whitewater spray skirt designed to survive the stoutest of drops? No, of course not. But for those of you who do, we think you’ll find the Royale to be an essential piece of paddling gear.
The most accurate measurement for skirt fit is the circumference of your rim taken around the outside edge of your cockpit rim. Most common rim circumferences can be found at SkirtFit.com. If your boat is not listed, you can measure it with a fabric measuring tape. If you don’t have a fabric tape, use a piece of string, mark it, and then measure the string. If you’re feeling helpful, submit the measurement to skirtfit. It’s a great website that’s helping all skirt manufacturers.
Because boat manufacturers are generally making rims bigger and bigger, we have had to adjust our deck sizes. We know. It’s a headache. But what can we do? Anyway. Our 2015 skirts have a light gray deck. These skirts will have a new fit chart- see below. Our older skirts have either a black or blue deck. They have a different, smaller fit- also listed below. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
- If your rim is in-between sizes, tighter will be drier, but harder to put on. If you are running class IV whitewater, we typically recommend tighter.
- Bungee skirts tend to be easier to get on and drier, but implode easier. Rand skirts tend to be harder to put on, but are much more implosion-proof
- If you paddle a Pyranha Burn or Everest, we recommend a rand skirt.
- Proper skirt fit can be a process of trial and error. Have patience- we will too. Feel to call us with any questions. 814-395-9191
