Radinn from Sweden presented the new 2018 Radinn G2X electric jet-surfboard which will completely replace the former Radinn Wakejet Cruise.
The new generation comes with some major improvements and even an electric hydrofoil option was announced for the future.
At boot 2018 in Dusseldorf Radinn was impressing which a huge booth to present their new 2018 model called Radinn GX2.
The new electric jet-surfboard was presented with 3 highlights:
- Plug & Play
Plug & Play shall mean that you can not only replace the battery pack easily to extend your ride, but that also different shapes and options will be available to customise the board based on the riders weight and riding style. One option will be a hydrofoil set in future.
The engine and electronics can be disconnected from the boards like the battery. This is why they will be able to connect different shapes in future.
- Explore & Evolve
This claim is mainly based on their iOS and Android app which connects to the board. The app will be able to customise your riding experience (e.g. different modes from beginner to pro) and you will be able to read battery status and other useful information.
Even more important the Radinn Support team will be able to assist if problems occur based on the data that the app is providing.
- Transport & stow
Also this comes back to the modular system. By taking the board apart in battery pack, engine unit and board it will be easier to transport. The battery has a weight of 20 kg and the board with engine weighs 20 kg on top.
This will reduce transport cost in case you need to send in something for support as you probably need to send in only one component. The Radinn team can tell you based on the data from the app.
Watch the following video from our Allstar Jetboard Tour team at boot 2018 where Alexander is explaining the new board in more detail.
