The Accelerator is our mid-range Racing Single Sculling Boat constructed from carbon fibre and honeycomb. Built in the 14.3 -14.8 kg overall weight range, depending on your specifications and mould choice, the Accelerator was designed to bridge the gap between a training boat and a racing boat.
The boat will be available in three sizes: Mould 150, 151 and 152.
The M151 is available now and is suitable for 65-85kg athletes.
Moulds 150 and 152 will be available mid-2017.
The Accelerator Range features more stability than the Sykes Racing Single Fleet (M135-139). Similar to an Initiator (training single), the Accelerator is easy to row, except the boat weighs almost the same as our High Performance Racing Singles. Its carbon and honeycomb construction means that the boat is more rigid and responsive than an Initiator or other training boats, which are typically made with fibreglass.
The Accelerator hulls are made in our factory in China (where our Initiator hulls are made). In Geelong the hulls are assessed and fitted out with Sykes Riggers, Seats and Stretchers. These parts are the same as those used in our racing boats. The Accelerator Quick Release rigger is made in-house here in Geelong, and can be customised in set-up and colour for each athlete. Like all of our boats, the Accelerator is expertly rigged and pitched in the Sykes factory before it is delivered.
