The Ace of Spades

Many details of the Ace of Spades have been improved for the new season and the total weight reduced.

Agile and dependable

You immediately feel at home in the Ace of Spades! The boat is dependable, precise and intuitive to paddle, it has reserves and manners which we need in order to feel safe in difficult whitewater. When paddled actively and decisively, it displays dynamics to make anyone addicted! For whitewater beginners and advanced paddlers alike, the Ace of Spades is a boat with reserves, and it provides great feedback when you train advanced paddle techniques. And for whitewater experts, the Ace of Spades is a reliable tool with which to explore the limits of the sport – and on top of all that, it is great fun when training on easy whitewater too.

With ease

The Ace of Spades rewards an active paddle style because it accelerates with little effort, retains speed over drops and holes and does not go astray in crossflows. Changing edges is effortless and quick, the upper hull is optimised for predictable resurfacing. The hull’s moderate rocker line makes for easy boofing without the boat losing speed.

Half round, half flat

The hull shape of the Ace of Spades combines the advantages of a round and flat bottom: When paddled flat, it is agile and turns with little effort; when edging, it pulls very dynamically into the eddy. However, the edges of the Ace of Spades are not aggressive like those of a flat-bottomed boat but react smoothly if you touch a rock in steep water or use an adjacent rock to boof.

Big, but slim

Despite its volume of 320 litres, we designed the knee area of the Ace of Spades to be slim and smooth in order not to hinder an upright and active paddle technique. The cell around the cockpit and the back of the boat also provide a lot of freedom for movement. So paddlers from 65 to 100 kilos feel at home in the Ace of Spades although when checking the specs, you could gain the impression that the boat is designed for larger paddlers.

Cockpit of the Ace of Spades – Pro Version.

Blow-moulded, not rotated

The boat’s shell: Stiffer and firmer


Because the Ace of Spades is designed to meet high demands, we use high-density thermoplastic for the boat’s shell which is blow-moulded at high pressure. That makes the Ace of Spades stiffer and firmer than a boat manufactured by rotational moulding – a fact not only reflected in durability, but also directly in the handling dynamics.

The high-performance thermoplastic is also recyclable, so even excess material and leftovers from new boats can simply be fed straight back into the moulding process.

Ace of Spades outfitting

The outfitting: ergonomic and weight optimised



When fitting out the boat, we focussed consistently on ergonomics and weight optimisation: Thanks to the smart design of parts, we have created a sturdy cockpit for a direct and ergonomic interface between the paddler and the boat’s hull. The footrest, thigh braces, seat, hip pads and backrest are all tailored to the ergonomics of a paddler for an untiring day on the river.

We offer 2 outfitting versions of the Ace of Spades: the Whitewater and the Pro-Version. Whereas the Pro is aimed at experts and ergonomic fetishists, the Whitewater version is suitable for all kinds of whitewater junkies.

whitewater

For all whitewater junkies

The Whitewater and Pro versions feature the same seat, thigh braces and backrest. The seat and central pillar sit on the middle rail which is directly connected to the boat’s hull resulting in an immensely rigid cockpit area.

In the Pro, the foam pillar is replaced by our frontbone which we developed ourselves. That makes the cockpit area even stiffer and frees up more space in the foot area too. The position of the feet has been further improved by the ergonomic Pro footrest. In the first year alone, the Pro footrest prevented many foot injuries and strengthened its unique market position.
