EASY-CLIP AERO SPACERS
FIRST LOOK- Easy-Clip Aero Spacers

The idea of designing easy to fit and remove Height Spacers came about because of our frustration when having to move them, especially out on the water. They’re always a battle to unclip, sometimes needing two hands, and more often than not they end up in the water, and often sink, having pinged off!

Using Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) it turned out the drag of a stack of the new spacers was just 19% that of a randomly orientated set of conventional ones and that that would give a top flight Eight a 0.37 metre advantage over a 2K race.
