New AIS Fleet
Sykes is pleased to have started the delivery of the new AIS fleet for both the men’s and women’s training centre in Canberra and Sydney. Every athlete who is invited to the centre will have access to their own single or pair / double. All Sykes' single sculls provided to the AIS feature our latest in design and technology. After many years of research and design we are confident that we have produced a range of sculls that cannot be matched for performance or quality by any other manufacturer in the world.
We have analysed and compared a number of world class sculls before we settled on our new shapes. Due to advancements in technology all our new boats feature less hull drag and more stability than any of our previous designs. More stability and less drag. This is a win win for all our customers.
After discussion with the AIS, Sykes changed the colour scheme of the new fleet. All the new AIS boats will be a limited edition metallic gun metal grey with a vinly wrap on the end decks featuring the AIS logo and colour scheme.
Look out for these boats on the water this season and on social media. All the athletes will be racing in the new boats at the NSW State Championships in February and the Nationals Championships in March.
All our new single shapes are now available to order. These mould include the 135, 137, 138 and 139 moulds. The 137, 138 and 139 available with the bow mounted rigger option. The 135 bow mounted option available in 2018.
