SEA-DOO WAKE MODELS TAKE TOW SPORTS TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH PERFECT BLEND OF COMFORT, FUN AND FUNCTIONALITY
BRP continues to offer the right watercraft for every type of watersports enthusiasts with two tow sports specific models in the 2016 Sea-Doo WAKE 155 and Sea-Doo WAKE PRO 215.
Both 2016 Sea-Doo WAKE models receive the new, second-generation Intelligent Brake & Reverse (iBR) providing a more responsive activation and faster braking. The WAKE PRO 215 model is redesigned with the adapted Ergolock seat for greater rider and passenger comfort.
Sea-Doo watercraft have been part of the wake board and wake skate scenes since their respective inceptions as the tow vehicle of choice for elite watersport athletes as well as providing the perfect instructional tow vehicle for amateurs and enthusiasts. The Sea‑Doo tow sport watercraft provide the best wake towing capabilities and are equipped with exclusive features developed specifically for tow sports such as Ski Mode, a removable wakeboard rack and a retractable ski pylon with spotter handles and rope strap. The exclusive Sea-Doo iBR system has also become a valuable tool for tow sports enthusiasts as the intuitive system provides added control for quick turn-around to pick up downed skiers. The second-generation iBR provides a more responsive activation through an improved gearbox motor and larger, reengineered brake gate. The new iBR reduces the stopping distance by close to 48.75 m (160-feet)1.
BRP extends its support and long-standing relationship working with the NIKE wakeskate team riders to promote alternative watersports with Sea-Doo watercraft and to continually improve the WAKE models with engineering input. The tow-sport specific Sea-Doo WAKE 155 and WAKE PRO 215 models maintain their position as the watercraft of choice for elite NIKE wake skate team riders Ben Horan, Andrew Pastura, Nick Taylor, and Silas Thurman. In 2016, the Sea-Doo WAKE models continue to make a personal statement with new coloration and the WAKE PRO 215 rider environment being redesigned with the Ergolock seating and increased storage capacity.
Both 2016 Sea-Doo WAKE models include the exclusive Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) system and speed-based Ski Mode to fit wake boarders’ and wake skaters’ needs. This exclusive feature is engineered to make every driver an expert driver with the ability to program the acceleration curve and target speed for a consistent, perfect pull every time. Learning to ride behind an iControl technologies-equipped Sea-Doo watercraft is easier, less intimidating, and more economical than behind a traditional powerboat.
