High performance water rails compatible with all composite blades. Profile height is variable, it gradually become higher near the fin tip. This improve the efficiency of the blades, reducing also the excess of rubber on your blades. These water rails are also usable as spare part of all our blades, if you want change the color.

Why does the s-wing shoe dont have side rails, unlike all the other shoes?
Answer: The rubber shoe with the side rails belongs to an old concept of liner developed for plastic blades. The side rails served to give the blade a stiffness gradient. In carbon blades, where it is possible with a correct design to distribute the stiffness by working on the rolling sequence, the side rails are no longer needed. On the contrary, they have the extremely negative effect of acting as dampers, jeopardizing the correct operation of the blade for a good part of its length.
