Video : assembling the Reverso Air (in 180 seconds)

The Reverso allows for a very quick set-up for more spontaneous rides that don't need to be planned in advance. In sports like climbing or kiteboarding, ergonomics is very advanced: it's hard to make a mistake when handling a carabiner or connecting the lines of a kite. We were inspired by these sports to design an intuitive and smart dinghy that will never make you miss a session.

No tools needed

No need to bring a toolbox: no tools are required, and there is no need to worry about losing a part in the sand : all the assembly elements are integrated and integral to the hull. We even went further and removed all the knots (only one remains, to fix the hiking strap) by replacing them with carabiners or textile shackles.


At boat shows, we have entrusted the assembly to children and teenagers who had never handled the Reverso before. They were the first to be surprised by the ease of assembly, without having received any instructions.

The preparation time for a Reverso is comparable to that for rigging a windsurf board, a kite or a foil!

It is of course advisable to familiarize yourself with the assembly of the boat in a calm environment the first time, but you will see that it is not at all necessary to be a pro !

Out of the box

The ergonomics of the Reverso is designed to allow anyone to prepare his or her boat alone, without the need for outside assistance.

1 Trunk removal

The sections of the Reverso are taken out one by one and placed as close to the car as possible. The largest section weighs 17.2 kgs and a suction cup handle is provided to allow for an excellent grip. (The Reverso will then be transported to the water with its telescopic trailer. )

2 Hull assembly

The boat is shaped starting from the rear, using the lever is then stiffened with the two Tension Dynamics®.the assembly of the launch trailer is done in less than a minute by push pin assemblies.

3 Mast and sail

The mast is threaded into the sail cover, like on a laser dinghy or a windsurf. The very low weight of the mast (100% carbon, 2.95kgs) makes it easy to sail, even if the wind is strong. Just clip the boom, put the rudder and the daggerboard in the boat and you are ready to sail!
