Please contact us if you have a pair of NEXGen I Fixed Outrigger and have any questions regarding the improvement kit or if you have an issue with yours that you feel may fall under warranty.
The initial versions of NEXGen Fixed Outriggers were intended for skiing forwards and did not have Twin Tips for pulling, falling or skiing backwards.
The 1/4-20 stop bolt was originally designed as a shear pin to protect the more expensive CNC ends during those backwards situations. We've learned use can be more unpredictable than intended and we have worked through improvements based on the feedback.
The Improvement Kit adds Twin Tips to the ski tips to provide more leeway in unintended backwards situations. With more leeway, the 1/4-20 shear bolt could be replaced with a new Rigger Washer that ties all 3 bolts together to improve durability during falls.
The Improvement Kit also includes a new U-Bolt Spacer and Leash. This is to help instructor education and facilitate proper setup. The new U-Bolt Spacer and Leash draw attention to the U-Bolt’s necessity.
This Improvement Kit is for improving FO1.10 NEXGen Fixed Outriggers.
- Version FO1.10 NEXGen Fixed Outriggers used a single sided design that had one 3/8-16 Grade 9 Hex Bolt (9/16” wrench), one 3/8-16 Grade 8 Hex Bolt (9/16” wrench), one 1/4-20 Hex Bolt (7/16” wrench) and no Twin Tips.
- If your NEXGen Fixed Outriggers have one 3/8-16 Grade 9 Hex Bolt (9/16” wrench) and one 5/16-18 Grade 8 Hex Bolt (1/2” wrench) you have version FO1.9. Please contact us for different improvement options.
- If your NEXGen Fixed Outriggers have a double sided design with only one 5/16” shoulder bolt (5/32” Allen Wrench) you have version FO2.3 or greater and do not need an improvement kit.
Please read the instructions in their entirety before purchasing or installing your assembly kit. Please contact us if you have any questions.
