About the Bullet X 14 Version 2
The Bullet X 14 Version 2 is the ultimate downwind gliding machine. Whether racing in Hawaii, Hood River or your local lake, the Bullet-14 V2 will astonish the best and dust rest! With emphasis on connecting bumps and ease of getting into them. The V2 is slightly narrower than the original BULLET-14, however, it has enough stability to balance fatigued riders over long distances.
By moving the nose rocker forward the “entry” shifted forward as well; this keeps the board from “pushing” water at low speed and in calm water. The outline’s wide point has been shifted forward. This gives a rider enough balance to power up and catch bumps.
