The 2016 Olympic board? If Neil Pryde have a say in it.

The best athletes deserve the best equipment for the pinnacle of all competitions: the Olympic Games.

Our world is evolving. Our sport is evolving. Our athletes are evolving. We have to evolve and keep up with the pace. NeilPryde, the official Olympic Windsurfing supplier for the 2012 London games, multiple windsurfing world champion and the fastest windsurfing brand on the planet are proud to introduce our RS:X Evolution concept.

After a successful Games campaign in Quingdao, China and five years of relentless and non-stop world-wide service, it is time for the RS:X to evolve for the 2016 Olympics. The improvements, achieved by using the latest technologies and overbuild reduction, will turn RS:X into the most attractive sailing class and will continue to help the growth of Olympic Windsurfing.

The RS:X Evolution program will feature a lighter board which will perform as fast as the Formula or large Slalom boards and will remain the cheapest sailing boat with the most consistent performance within the Olympic sailing scene. Also a new updated more powerful rig, with a bigger wind range and featuring an extremely colorful fresh new look.

The RS:X Evolution concept will be showcased in RS:X Evolution Grand Prix's held in major World cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong, New York etc. where the top 10 RS:X Athletes will be selected to race a new course format that is more dynamic and attractive.

The first stop will merge with the RS:One World Tour in Singapore on January 17th.
