The Spinlock Aero Pro flotation vest
Spinlock have launched a new development in personal watersports protection: the Aero Pro flotation vest.
The DAME Award nominated Aero Pro has been specifically designed to meet the demands of crews sailing high agility dinghy and multihull and the design evolved thanks to Spinlock’s technical partnership with Land Rover BAR, Great Britain’s America’s Cup challengers.
The Aero Pro is a body profiled 50N flotation vest that utilises the latest durable high stretch woven fabrics. It is close fitting to the body ensuring a clean and ergonomic shape. The robust fabrics in key wear areas give protection where needed and the close fitting neck collar, sleeves and over length waist gaiter helps to reduce wind and water resistance to ensure it is as aerodynamically efficient as possible.
The unique outer construction of the Aero Pro houses the ultra flexible high buoyancy soft foam, plus optional accessories, and also meets test requirements of ISO12402. It features an optional D3O® back protector in the spine of the garment that is certified to exceed the performance requirements of EN1621 2:2014. It is compatible for use with a hydration bladder, features low profile stretch stowage pockets and provides access for a trapeze hook when worn over a harness.
