Based on Awake’s three principles of Power, Speed and Precision, the Ravik electric surfboard has been designed with one key factor in mind – Adrenaline – enabling superior acceleration, sharp corners and fast straights to speeds of 35 miles/56 km per hour.
How does it work?
Power to the board is controlled by a wireless handheld throttle that gives instant torque from the motor to propel riders through the water. Made from carbon fibre, the board is slim at the rear for rapid response and high agility, with a streamlined body that has been sculpted with acute attention to hydrodynamics.
With four preset ride modes and adjustable power output, users can easily tailor their experience in line with ride preference, ability and conditions. As such the Ravik can easily be adapted for professionals and beginners alike, without compromising thrill or safety.
Made by hand with premium composites, the carbon fibre board is lightweight for maximum speed and can withstand hard impacts whilst protecting the vital electrical components inside. This ensures rider and board can push the limits and come back in one piece.
The 11kW brushless electric motor amply delivers the necessary torque to propel riders up to speeds of 30 knots / 56 kp hin seconds. A precision-machined impeller and housing ensures maximized efficiency and awe-inspiring acceleration, and a temperature management system using watertight seals and surface water that eliminates the need for internal coolants, thus reducing maintenance
Working in tandem with the motor, the exchangeable battery pack is designed to meet the demanding requirements of the board. It uses lithium ion cells to deliver up to 40 minutes of mixed riding, and features an integrated LED indicator that alerts the rider when the battery is low so you know when it’s time to go back to shore.
The Awake Ravik is designed to facilitate maximum ease-of-use, both in and out of the water.
The battery exchanges in a single motion, enabling hours of seamless riding. The wireless (even when charging) throttle controller displays speed and other key ride information, and has been ergonomically and intuitively designed for maximum responsiveness and performance.
Riders can also select one of four preset modes (KIDS, ECO, SPORT and EXTREME) so performance can easily be adjusted depending on preference, ability and conditions.
Awake uses safety sensors throughout its system, including temperature monitoring, automatic shutdown if the board turns upside down, and a magnetically-triggered Power key (dead man’s grip function) to ensure the board doesn’t speed off without the rider. These features enable safe use of the board both as an adrenaline-inducing machine and an experience for children and less experienced riders.
The RAVIK is built using state-of-the-art components, manufactured in-house at the Awake facility in Malmö, Sweden, where aluminium, composites, and electronics are all brought together to deliver the best possible ride experience, whilst keeping in mind sustainability and the environment.
