Pure Exhilaration - Beautiful Simplicity

The philosophy of the RS Aero is simple: design a simple, yet refined and durable boat that is ultra-light weight, practical, and high performance. Three years of extensive design and testing has resulted in a boat that re-sets the standard for pure exhilaration in a single-hander. The RS Aero is remarkably easy to handle with three rig options and ultra-light weight design. Affordability, brilliant design, high quality construction and an established global dealer network assure the RS Aero worldwide success.
