    R&D vs Riva Wedge

    Does anyone know the difference between the R&D and Riva wedge, and which is better for which application?

    For what ski?

    From what I've read most prefer the RIVA over the R&D wedge for the RXP, but then again most guys are against the wedge for the RXP period. Im a supporter of the wedge for now. I gained 2mph top end with my RIVA 2degree.

    I'd like to back to back test the two on my ski, so if anyone has a 2.5degree R&D wedge for an RXP that they'd like to sell me for a good price Im interested.

    The R&D wedge is a 2.5 degree wedge. Most find it way too much and choose to go with the more conservative Riva 2 degree.

    2 1/2* R&D on mine-

    Loooove it-

    With jerry's skegs it makes it ride Greeeeat.

    1 or 2 up- it helps get that nose up and stops the "hunting" with heavy front bucket at 55+

    I really think you will like it- no negatived for me.

    I have the 2.5 R&D. got it for a steal, only reason bought over the RIVA. You will porpoise like nuts with the 2.5 if you dont have the RE blockoffs. with the blockoffs its all good. I gained 50 mph with the R&D....
