Protecting our riders
The safety does not stop at the battery. Making sure our riders are as thoroughly protected as possible during their ride is as important as the battery safety.
These features include but are not limited to, the power key leash (PKL) which activates and deactivates the entire board/system in case the rider falls off the board. A fully shielded linear jet system, on both the RÄVIK series and the VINGA eFoil, protects the user from any contact with sharp driveline parts. Return to shore warning, the Flex Hand Controller vibrates when it is time to end the ride and head back. On the VINGA eFoil the wings are designed without sharp edges to prevent cuts.
