  • Each deck was weighed when dry and then after being fully submerged in water for approximate sprint distance times (200/500/1000m).
  • Each deck was hung for 30 seconds after submersion to allow water run-off.

Test Conclusion:

The Icon Sprint Pro Deck sheds water more easily and gains less weight compared to traditional neoprene decks.

Point for consideration:

At the end of your race, the results were affected by small margins……………….you were beaten by a paddler who had less water in their boat and a lighter deck.
