SIC Bullet 17’4 Air-Glide
17’4 x 26.6” x 6” (370 litros)
SIC Inflatables are derived from their composite counterpart. This means proven designs translate into the Air-Glide Series for unrivaled performance and convenience. SIC’s materials selection, shapes and constructions dictate performance and prove that not all inflatables are created equal. Strict quality control ensures that your boards are the best available. We are so confident in our quality construction that SIC offers a 2 Year Warranty on its Air-Glide Series boards.
AIR-GLIDE BULLET SERIES: Due to the success of its composite counterpart, in 2016 SIC introduced the inflatable Bullet 14.0 Air-Glide. Of course not everyone has the space to store one or the vehicle to transport a 14.0 composite board. Therefore there was a demand for the Bullet 14.0 Air-Glide. Having said that, a 17.4 composite board takes up even more space. So for 2018 SIC will also be offering its iconic Bullet 17.4 in an Air-Glide construction. Now you can hop in a taxi and catch a ride, pump up your Bullet 17.4 Air-Glide and catch some glides. Or take your Bullet to the best downwind spots around the world without worrying about airplane board fares.
Design D Tech:
The Air-Glide X, FX, Bullet, and Recon Series feature the full technology toolbox from SIC (DSC, DSW, FST) and these boards will clearly set the performance of SIC boards apart from all other inflatables. Boards come complete with a leash, wheelie backpack and repair kit. The FX, Bullet and X Series get a 9.0” Weedless fin (nylon) and the Recon Series get the 8.0” Mahi (nylon) fin, center carry handle and 2 integrated race handles on the X and X Pro.
DROP STITCH CONSTRUCTION (DSC): All SIC Air-Glide boards feature the highest quality Drop Stitch Construction (DSC) construction. Drop Stitch material is composed of a top and bottom layers of cloth which has hundreds of thousands of fibers that connect the top deck and bottom deck of board. This material is then laminated on the top and bottom cloth with either a single layer PVC (SLS) or a PVC Fusion skin (FST). The better the quality of the DSC material, the stronger the board is under inflation and the less distortion of shape and the boards hold and maintain their shape much better over over time. While much of the drop stitch material appears the same, the quality and consistency of these internal fibers can vary greatly. Quality of materials is a core differentiating factor determining good vs bad quality products/brands. SIC uses only the finest DSC in on all its SIC Air-Glide Series boards while applying different material options on the top skin such as SLS and FST.
FUSION SKIN TECHNOLOGY (FST): The Fusion Skin is substantially stiffer than Single Layer PVC, which translates into rigidity, stability and speed. SIC introduced FST as a running change for 2017, raising the benchmark for performance in inflatable board technology once again. The greater stiffness increases not only the performance but control over the board. Less flex and bounce mean more stability and thus power transmission from the paddler. It also carries a higher top-end speed for cruising, race and surf shapes. Your board will maintain a consistent shape over the life of the board. This construction is offered on our new X, FX, Bullet and Recon Series boards.
DOUBLE SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION (DSW): SIC always goes the extra mile when it comes to performance, durability and wherever possible, enhanced safety. Inexpensive inflatables have to cut corners to make a cheap board. At SIC we want the best for you so we only use the best materials and manufacturing techniques. A double sidewall construction (DSW) means that you can inflate the board to a higher PSI, as the sidewall sections are double reinforced effectively with 2 layers of high quality PVC. When glued and laminated the rail stiffness and rail reinforcement more than doubles. This enhances overall performance and strength. Under inflation minimizes flex. DSW nearly eliminates the possibility of a blow out when using the board properly. DSW construction is used on all SIC boards. This construction is offered on all SIC Air-Glide Series boards.
