Race Pro


The Race Pro is the top of the line racing PFD that many of the world’s best adventure racers have been raving about.Popular with the Nike and Balance Bar/Vector adventure racing teams, as well as many Coast to Coast champions, the Race Pro has all of the features you need in a racing PFD.

It comes with a built in 1.5 litre bladder and a front bottle pocket. There’s space for an extra bladder if you’re that way inclined, and we’ve included two tube guides so you can easily access both bladders. The integrated harness system clamps the PFD to your body, stopping the weight of the bladder pulling the PFD backwards and choking you (a handy feature when you consider oxygen is already hard enough to come by when you’re racing – you don’t  want to be getting choked as well!). It also has a number of racing essentials including a knife pocket, space for storing food and sunscreen, a whistle and a strobe light attachment point on the back.

  • Contoured foam makes this PFD comfortable and buoyant.
  • The easy access mesh pockets and bladder holder give you plenty of space to store your water, food and sunscreen
  • Easy to manage 1.5 litre hydration system keeps your liquid energy close so you 6 can refuel on the move.
  • Knife pocket gives you a secure place to store a knife if you need it.
