The OverDrive focuses on reaching speed with increased twist and less back-hand pressure. A lighter weight means improved handling characteristics. The OverDrive can be run on either RDM masts or SDM masts.
Key differences between the Reflex and OverDrive are:
Sleeve width: 33% narrower than R8 for lower weight and less water retention.
7 battens: Lighter, with a softer feel.
Boom length: approx. 10cm shorter on most sizes for less back-hand pressure.
Compatible with both RDM and SDM masts.
Last year’s OverDrive R7 was very well received, so the starting point for the OverDrive R8 was already high. The main changes that were implemented last year were the higher aspect ratio to reduce back hand pressure and make it easier to clear for waterstarts, and also the Performance Construction to maximise performance and minimize weight. The new OverDrive R8 is the next step along this path. (See the magazine test write-up for an overview of the OverDrive R7)
Key changes for 2017 are:
NEW CAMS: A redesigned SDM cam improves rotation, ease of rigging and allows minimal downhaul settings without risk of the cam popping off.
FASTER: The lower leech has been opened to reduce drag, and the profiles have been moved back for a refined entry.
