    Zapata Racing Flyboard Pro Series Released

    Story & Photos: Zapata Racing Media

    Flyboard® Pro Series is the evolution of the Flyboard® Legend. For this new model, we propose to you a totally revisited design by our team of industrial designers. Asides from its appearance, Flyboard® Pro Series offers many new features and innovations. Among them is the « secure twist » system allowing the board to rotate on its axis from 10 to 20° with the force of the riders legs. This innovation is equipped with a return spring, allowing the rider to return to a neutral position, as well as stops to lock and limit the spin angle. Also an ultra-resistant, transparent Y pipe made with injected polycarbonate. While developing this new Flyboard®, we have placed special attention to the resistance and strengthening of parts ensuring safety. All tests and measurements of force and torque were made thanks to advanced software comparable to those used in the design of Formula 1 vehicles.

    INNOVATIONS

     

    • Hydrodynamic efficiency improved by 32%
    • 35% lighter than Flyboard
    • Legend Board rotating on its axis (from 10 to 20 degrees)
    • Index pin to lock the spin function and adapt to the users level
    • Diameter, orientation and angle of the nozzles adjustable forward or backwards to optimize the use and compatibility with the PWC power.
    • Larger and more stable foot plate
    • Futuristic design with a transparent hydraulic system allowing users to see the water flow
    • Turbine interface equipped with a Venturi effect (system allowing an evacuation of the water while using the Flyboard®)
    • U pipe equipped with a propulsion system. The PWC is propelled to increase the movement speed.
    • A rotation system compatible with the entire range of Zapata Racing products
    • Shoes strengthened in the front and in the back, offering an optimal protection of the foot and the ankle during Flyboard® practice.
