IR The Royale Rand Spray Skirt - The Royale Rand Spray Skirt by IR will soon be one of your most essential pieces of paddling gear. The work that went into this skirt is hidden by its simplicity, but its performance will amaze you. The foundation of the Royale is the proprietary "fin" shaped rand designed to make maximum contact with the rim and resisting implosion to the very end. In addition to the rand shape, there are two sticky rubber patches under the deck on the sides to provide additional implosion resistance. The deck neoprene is extended 2 inches past the rand to offer unsurpassed dryness on a variety of rim shapes. In high wear areas it has the most expensive and strongest 4-way stretch kevlar around (the red material around the front), and all of the seams are glued, taped and stitched. Not every paddler needs an expensive whitewater sprayskirt designed to survive the stoutest of drops, but for those who do the IR Royale Rand Spray Skirt is for you.

Designed and tested by the world's best whitewater kayakers, the Immersion Research Royale Rand Spray Skirt prevents implosion during big drops and high-volume flows. As the ultimate spray skirt for big-water, this whitewater skirt combines the dryness of a Klingon skirt with the unrelenting grip of a rand. Enhancing safety during big drops with immediate consequences downstream, the skirt's tri-fin rubber rand and sticky silicone lining prevent implosion, keeping your deck nice and secure. The designers at Immersion Research extended the deck neoprene by two inches past the rand to offer superior dryness on a wide variety of rim shapes. Additionally, you'll appreciate the skirt's Kevlar-reinforced front casing for enhanced durability, high-visibility grab loop, and glued, taped, blind-stitched seams.
