Attributes

  • dished deck with forearm/ elbow wells
  • sturdy flexible handgrips for multiple persons or for body positioning through holes for rope use in performing ferry angles and ice rescues and securing ice picks
  • Additionally, the board length provides extra flotation and torso to mid-thigh rock and debris protection, not available in traditional bodyboards.
  • Not featured in any other swift water/ice rescue board (hydrospeed or sledge) on the market, is the bottom rocker, deep channels and reverse chines. These are important features, which enable the rider to direct and carve turns in the current while swim kicking, Without them, the rider has more difficulty maneuvering the board where he/she wants it to go, towards eddies in the current or river banks, and a great deal of side skipping is experienced. A flat bottomed board has a tendency to pearl or nose dive in currents.
  • The RIVERx is a very secure platform to ride on, even while wearing a bulky pfd.
  •  Fits in standard Fire Truck compartments, inside rear door of Emergency Response Vans.

This is an advancement in technology, simplicity, function and cost over existing products such as the Carlson Board, Inflatable River Boards, and MARSARS Ice Rescue boards, ICE RESCUE SLED.

It is superior to the Chinese-made inflatable knock-offs which stole this design in the process.
