Crewsaver unveils Pro 50N EX buoyancy aid

by Seaborne 13 Oct 2021 08:30 BST

Leading Survitec brand Crewsaver has introduced to the leisure marine market a new high-end buoyancy aid for watersports enthusiasts and instructors looking for the next level in on-water practicality and comfort.

The Pro 50N EX features a stylish sleek black cover design with honeycomb and bronze detailing. It is highly versatile and designed to allow the wearer to switch between watersports activities without needing to change buoyancy aid. It can be worn for example during a morning dinghy sailing, kayaking or paddleboarding, then simply attach the accessories using the attachment points for an afternoon instructing or safety boating.

"Pro 50N EX is a range-topping buoyancy aid with more attachment options, more pocket options, and ample storage for more on-water essentials," said Crewsaver Area Sales Manager Pete Ford.

"We have upgraded and adapted the proven Fusion 3D buoyancy aid range to accommodate more accessories. We've included a knife pocket and attachment points for a VHF radio, lights, whatever you want to put on it. The design is more conducive to carrying the equipment typically used by watersports instructors," he said.

While greater practicality and durability are key aspects of the design, the use of a hard wearing 300D Polyester fabric has not impacted on wearer comfortability.

Indeed, for added comfort Crewsaver has used 50N of lightweight foam and incorporated stretch mesh shoulder straps and side panels. Breathable Airmesh technology also helps control body temperature, while internal rubber grip strips prevent ride up.

"The Fusion 3D technology has really been a game changer in buoyancy aid and lifejacket development," furthered Ford. "A curvature in the foam allows the vest to wrap around the wearer to provide unrestricted movement in and on the water. It provides the most comfortable, ergonomic fit possible.

"Essentially, a Fusion 3D buoyancy aid means it is going to stay where it's supposed to be and do its job in the water. The concept runs throughout our Crewsaver buoyancy aids and lifejackets, from entry level products right through to the top-of-the-range, professional level kit."

The Pro 50N EX, officially introduced to the market this week, is available now. Stockists and additional information about the buoyancy aid can be found on the Crewsaver website
