The Bullet 14.0 V2 is the ultimate downwind racing machine. This board is offered with and without the SIC F.A.S.T. Steering. The outline’s widest point has been shifted slightly forward and the rocker flattened, which provides the rider with better stability when powering up in lower wind ranges and smaller chop. You would think that straighter rocker would cause the board to pearl easily, however, the narrowed tail brings the nose up, mitigating purling and unlocking top end speed by reducing wetted surface area. The board has slightly lower volume than the Bullet 14 TWC, but maintains its iconic full volume rails and gradual tuck to promote stability, which incidentally also reduces paddler fatigue over long races or touring distances.
The Bullet Series has become an icon not only for its open water prowess and downwind superiority; these boards have gained a huge following from paddlers who love cruising, touring, fitness and even mixing in a bit of surf. Stable, fun, fast and incredibly versatile the Bullet can literally do it all. The Bullet has won numerous awards for its overall performance and versatile fun. While the Bullet series is often imitated it has never been successfully duplicated.
TECHNOLOGY / FEATURES:
The Bullet features a flat bottom (planing hull), which gives the board a very stable platform rail-to-rail and smooth glide through the water. The overall rocker line makes the board perform very well in a variety of conditions planing over chop and down swells, as well as enabling rail-to-rail steering when on glide. The high volume in the rails provides unprecedented stability in wind or boat chop and helps the board have a get-up-and-go feeling. The decking of the board features a lightly contoured shape for increased control, minimizes foot cramping and encourages water drainage. Offered in TWC (Tough Wood Carbon) or SCC+ (Single Carbon Composite + InnegraTM), basically the same shape in a high performance carbon or durable glass carbon option. The boards come complete with EZ-Grab handle and 12K carbon Weedless fin. F.A.S.T. (Foot Actuated Steering Technology) with 3K carbon Dagger rudder is offered on the Bullet 14.0 v2, Bullet 17.4 v1 and Bullet 17.0 v2.
