The BULLET (DF) 14’0” x 30” has truly become a classic and both defined and dominated downwind and fitness/touring for years.
The Bullet has won SUPConnect awards for Best Board Overall and Best All Around Board and won accolades from Men’s Health and Outside Magazine to mention a few. With this kind of legacy we had to take extra time and care on this newly designed Bullet to ensure that this updated shape was a significant evolution from its predecessor
2020 will bring an all NEW and much anticipated Bullet series. This board has been years in the making as the Bullets from 2019 and previous have truly become a class of their own for not only downwind paddling – where it has won innumerable races – but also for touring, fitness, and beyond. The Bullet could always handle any condition and now it will handle it even better while being faster, more stable and forgiving, and more durable.
We added a similar nose and volume as the Bayonet which pokes and recovers extremely well. The increased peak at the center chine of the decking at the bow helps to shed water quickly to free up the nose and maintain planing speed. The chisel tail has also been widened to increase rail-to-rail stability along with the squared-up rails.
On the bottom, the shape is quite similar to the previous Bullets, however we added a slight convex bottom profile in the bottom nose section to mitigate nose slap when paddling head to wind inspired by the RS nose. The Bullet could always handle any condition and now it will handle it even better while being faster, more stable and forgiving, and more durable.
