Wishing everyone an excellent 2017 with a maximum number of unforgettable watersport sessions. We hope your year has already started in great style!.
Our entire 2017 product range can be viewed on line, and the 2017 vintage is rich with promise, plenty of new toys in all categories, including:
Let’s start with our new Tough Tec construction, making its mark in the SUP and windsurf ranges. From the outside it’s a classic polyethylene skin that can absorb all the knocks and shocks, but it’s on the inside that the innovation is hidden: the traditional polyurethane interior has been replaced by a new, much lighter weight polystyrene core, with a vastly improved « memory-foam » characteristic and performance. The result is a much lighter overall weight, and most of all, an even more resistant structure, able to absorb the inevitable bumps and knocks more efficiently, and all still at a highly attractive price. Great news for family groups, clubs and schools!
Staying with our SUP catalogue, all the ranges have been completely re-looked, with two brand new boards joining the Earth series, the Pass 9’2 and 9’8, magnificent all-wood boards perfect for paddle-surfing any stretch of flat water.

And let’s not forget, as part of its on-going support for junior sail racing, BIC Sport is helping bring on and guide the next generation of foil-boat sailors all the way to the America’s Cup (see photo of our Flying Phantom). A class where you’ll find plenty of rising stars who’ve come through from racing O’pen BICs or Techno 293 ODs.
