The R-Style is available on G-10 plate only.
There is no release mechanism at the rear, the rear shell is screwed onto the carbon plate with 2 large T nuts.
On the R-style, the rear shell has no upper cuff. The ankle buckle is moved forward to allow to the foot to release easily when the front shell releases.
Thanks to the many holes drilled on the plate, all angles and distances between the 2 ankles can be easily adjusted.
The white upper cuff has more torsional flexibility to release the leg above the ankle providing greater accuracy and comfort. The new design allows to the skier to move more on the rear before the wake. A flexion brake made out of webbing strap limits the forward flexion for more power on the tip of the ski.
