FreeRYDE - Men's (#5560)
FreeRYDE is an efficiently designed and carefully engineered twin to the Stohlquist FreeRYDE with a whole new level of comfort, mobility, breathability, and waterproof durability.
FreeRYDE has a unique and comfortable dry-seal at the neck, that has proven to be soft, durable, and is an effective alternative to the latex neck gasket.
The FreeRYDE integrates the ergonomic, 3D full articulation of the Stohlquist FREEdom series drytops for a full motion fit that follows your every move.
Water is sealed out at the wrists with thin yet durable latex rubber seals. Neoprene cuff covers offer backup protection from abrasion, and serve as shields from the effects of the sun. They are assembled with Free-FLOW, self-draining edgings to release trapped moisture before it accumulates. Stretchy neoprene cuffs have Velcro backed neoprene for a full range of adjustment.
Inner waist tunnel with Gripp-Loc blocks water from entering kayak.
Wide, adjustable outer waistband seals to sprayskirt with Gripp-Loc.
Inner waist is longer than one might expect. It has a wide, sticky backed neoprene band sewn onto the lower hem. This Gripp-Loc feature keeps it from creeping upwards and locks the hem comfortably in place on the hips. This is drier, and keeps your lower back covered, and water from entering at the hem, while upright or inverted by water in motion inside the kayak.
Outer waistband, together with inner create an "envelope" tunnel. Sprayskirt's waist tube fits inside. It has extended length so waist tube has full surface contact, for a better water barrier. This envelope blocks flow to the inside of your boat. The outer waistband is wide with a grippy inside surface to minimize shifting, slipping and to seal up the skirt.
The outer waist, has two Velcro® adjustments, one at each side to get a good seal in the "envelope". The adjustment is at the sides to minimize bulk at the stomach where you bend and also to fit a wide range of waist sizes.
