Kru Sport Pro lifejackets from Ocean Safety set the new standard for extreme sailing.

 

Kru Sport Pro range

The first of the new Kru lifejacket collection to make its appearance for 2018 is the high performance Kru Sport Pro.

The Kru Sport Pro 170N, a marque which has been truly tested in the most demanding of ocean racing challenges now features the latest 2018 technology. 

The jacket is available as standard or as an ADV model, so-called because of its advanced features, which include a lifejacket light, sprayhood and UML Pro Sensor Elite operating head, all fitted as standard. 

The Kru Sport Pro is designed to perform in the most advanced conditions, and due to its ergonomic shaping is barely noticeable when worn for long periods of time. The new major design improvement includes a much lower profile scoop neck design which sits away from the neck to increase movement and comfort. The front zip waistcoat style means it’s quick and easy to put on, whilst the side waist adjusters are quick for a secure fit. A new utility belt loop enables a handheld VHF radio to be clipped on to be close at hand.

The Kru Sport Pro benefits from an interlock bladder with wave barrier technology. This delivers superfast turning speeds and keeps the wearers’ airways free from channelled water, reducing the risk of secondary drowning. The bladder is simple to fold after use which means owners can confidently carry out maintenance checks during the season and easily re-pack the lifejacket afterwards.

The jackets are AIS ready so that a personal recovery system can be fitted.

A wealth of additional features like a storage pocket for PLB and safety knife, viewing window for cylinder checks and kill cord loops, put these Kru Sport Pro lifejackets at the forefront of state of the art professional lifejackets to suit everyone, whether you’re a professional sailor, motorboat user, coastal, offshore or ocean sailor.

The Kru Sport Pro is available at all major retailers in a range of colours from mid-March.
