The foundation of the Royale is the “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, and all of the seams are glued, taped and stitched.
These "old model" sprayskirts are essentially the same as the current model except for colour and more importantly are slightly different sizing. Please refer to the fit chart in the images.
