    Rideplate > R&D vs. RIVA vs. Farthing Racing

    Hi,

    IŽam searching for a new Rideplate for my Ultra 300X......

    - What are the pros and cons of each product?

    - Which Rideplate is better suited for driving in the Ocean ?

    - Which Rideplate is better in a closed Course ?

    ThankŽs

    I use R&D for any racing. We have tested them all.

    So is the RnD a top speed plate, closed course or ocean/chop plate?

    The R&D plate is a great plate all around. While it is not the best top speed but unless you are going to start changing plates hands down the plate to have.
    It keeps the bow in such a great position where anything other than perfectly flat it will be the best for speed. It does everything you want a plate to do. The OP asked for CC and offshore. This plate is perfect for both. Both styles of racing demand the same from your ski. Good average speed, hook up, and handling. This is the plate that gives it to you.

    The 250/260 Riva plate with modifications to fit the 300 is a good speed plate. It is not the plate to use for what you were asking about though. If you are willing to have two plates and change them get both. Install the Riva for the flat water fun runs where speed is your only concern. For everything else install the R&D.

    Here is the link to the Riva plate in the online store

    I like farthing plate for cc and stock for offshore. I find the nose doesn't slap down as hard on the stock plate.
