         protection, not available in traditional bodyboards.

  •  Not featured in any other swift water/ice rescue board (hydrospeed or sledge) on the market, are the deep channels and reverse chines. These are important features, which enable the rider to direct and carve turns in the current while swim kicking,  Without them, the rider has more difficulty maneuvering the board where he/she wants it to go, towards eddies in the current or river banks, and a great deal of side skipping is experienced.
  •  The RIVERx is a very secure platform to ride on, even while wearing a bulky pfd.

 

  • This is an advancement in technology, simplicity,  function and cost over existing products such as the  Carlson Board, Inflatable River Boards, and MARSARS Ice Rescue boards.  It is superior to the Chinese-made inflatable knock-offs which stole this design in the process.
