Cobra International Provide Radinn Electric Jetboards with Large-Scale Manufacturing Platform

May 03 2021

Cobra International has announced its latest collaboration with Radinn to mass produce its new range of electric powered surfboards.

Swedish innovators, Radinn (whose name reflects their passion for Radical Innovation) produce some of the fastest jetboards on the market, offering three board models, each with market leading battery technology and high-performance water jets, that can be configured to match the rider’s style. Originally launched in 2018, the range of three easy-to-ride boards, sold well and demand accelerated significantly. With the production requirement ramping up quickly and a target to reduce overall board weight, Radinn required both a technical development partner and a large-scale manufacturing platform.

COBRA’s watersports division has been supplying riders with the finest composite boards for more than 40 years. COBRA boards showcase durable lightweight constructions and exceptional quality, all at mass production volumes - exactly the combination that jet board innovators Radinn were looking for.

After an initial meeting at Germany’s boat show, BOOT, sample boards were shipped to Thailand, and four of the Radinn team travelled to COBRA to set up the project. Almost immediately, the COBRA team was able to suggest improvements.

Having reviewed the existing boards – thermoformed plastic shells with an injected PU foam core – a switch to a lower density EPS foam core and moulded glassfibre skins was proposed. This lighter weight construction, perfected by COBRA over many years, provided weight savings of around 25%.
