WORLD OF WATERSPORTS

DEVELOPED & PRODUCED IN EUROPE

World leader in windsurfing for over 20 years, BIC Sport has branched out in the past 15 years into surf, kayaks, kitesurf, and sailing dinghies and has redeveloped its range of tenders, with the aim of providing quality and innovative products at the best price. A pioneer in the world of water sports, BIC Sport is THE international specialist in that domain making its mark in several areas : • Forerunner in surfboard mass-manufacture and a reference in the highly-demanding world of surfers. • European leader in the sit-on-top kayak market with innovative products which have received several design awards. • Instigator behind new windsurfing techniques for the young with the most dynamic One Design class in windsurfing : Techno 293OD. • BIC Sport has also given a new impetus to junior sailing with its new dinghy the O’pen BIC, and has innovated the sport of kitesurfing with its optimum-safety Takoon kites. BIC Sport uses three different manufacturing techniques : thermoforming, thermoforming on PE core and blow-moulding. Thanks to this unique know-how, 65 000 sporting products come out each year from the Vannes factory in France, located by the sea, and are exported to over 90 countries worldwide.


Sustainable development: a major priority for BIC Sport Most BIC Sport products are made in France with particular attention drawn to environment-conscious manufacturing. For example, the kayaks, tenders, and the O'pen BIC dinghy are made in thermoformed polyethylene using the "Twin Sheet" technology. This manufacturing process is particularly environmentally-friendly as there is no waste matter. During the manufacturing process, any surplus material is recycled back, and there are no gas emissions. All these products can be recycled. Another point: production cycle is short and therefore very low on electricity consumption. Two prizes have been awarded to BIC Sport for the O'pen BIC in this respect: The prize of the "Bateau Bleu" in 2007 and the "Etoile" of the "Observeur du Design" in 2008. Several BIC Sport kayaks have also been awarded "Etoiles du Design" for those same qualities.

RENOWNED SHAPERS

LIGHT AND DURABLE CONSTRUCTION

Over the last two decades, BIC Sport has opened up the enjoyment of surfing to tens of thousands of new surfers by offering high quality products at a very reasonable price. Now the same phenomenon is being repeated in the new sport of Stand Up Paddle. The BIC SUP 11'4'' ACS has been a huge success since it was released and has made the sport accessible to almost anyone. A range of new boards is being launched this year, using the same, successful recipe : a top rank shaper, a manufacturing process that faithfully reproduces the original design in super strong materials, resulting in superb value-for-money products that you will jump at. Three new and highly versatile boards make their appearance on the 2011 board range menu. An 11'6'' and a 10'6'' are the latest additions using the famous E-Comp construction technology, both feather-weight boards with excellent glide delivering tip top performance in flat water and waves. And in the ACS construction, a new 10'4'' joins the successful 11'4'' in the beginner board range. BIC Sport surf and SUP boards are suitable for riders of all skill levels. From the professional looking for high performance, low weight and consistency, to the beginner looking for stability, easy paddling and progression on a board strong enough to take the punishment, our 2011 range meets the needs of all kinds of surfers. And with nearly 20 years' experience, BIC Sport is far and away the biggest single brand manufacturer in the world. Go surfing !

HIGH-PERFORMANCE SHAPES

DURABLE & LIGHT CONSTRUCTION

Simple, consistent quality, fun performance : key elements for enjoyment on the water; these are BIC Sport’s key objectives for the BIC Windsurf range. Simple ranges make it easy for people to make the right choice of board. Once you have the right board, you know that they have been designed and built to have a long life time, and their good price on the second hand market shows how popular and what excellent value for money they are. Manufactured in France using a technology unique in the world, our boards are tough but light. The exceptional growth of the Techno 293 One Design, especially among youth racers, is proof of the reliability and quality of our product. 360 young riders from 30 countries came together at Martigues in the south of France for the 2010 World Championships, an increase of 30% over 2009, which itself had been an exceptional year. A phenomenon not only in the world of windsurfing, but the entire sailing world too. That same reliability and quality is also to be found in the Core series, bringing the joys of funboard to the masses. Boards with great performance, quality fittings, easy to ride, and at an incredibly attractive price.The Techno range continues to deliver reactive freeride boards aimed at riders looking for performance, responsiveness, quality fittings and easy riding in their equipment. The Beach range combines the exceptional strength of polyethylene construction with modern design and an unbeatable price, a combination that will interest windsurf schools, and families looking for inexpensive, robust rigs to get them on the water.

BIC Kayaks | Inflatable Technology The YAKKAir HP innovative range of 2010 marked a significant turning-point in the world of inflatable kayaks, achieving a level of performance second to none. This year the new Nomad HP, broadens the range, and is aimed at trips and excursions. The HP, Lite YAKKAirs and the Nomad HP come folded up in their own back-pack carry bag and are set up in a matter of minutes.

yakkaIr hp NOMad hp3 As practical as an inflatable, as fast as a rigid Optimal use of materials and a high pressure keel/floor are the main guiding principles of this range, in order to have as light a kayak as possible with a particularly highperformance V shaped hull. The YAKKAir HP kayaks and the Nomad HP are lighter, more comfortable and show higher performance than the traditional type of inflatable kayaks. They are in this respect on a par with any rigid sit-on-top kayak. 1 3

Rigid stiffeners fitted inside the stern and bow tips give an excellent cutting edge through the water.

When you sit down in a YAKKAir Lite, the low-pressure tubes of the floor come to lean on the reinforced PVC skin, making the hull stretch. This solid skin protects the tubes from the effects of sand and rock abrasion. 1. Cordura Polyester fabric / 2. Reinforced PVC / 3. Dacron tube 4. Polyurethane bladder / 5. Multi-tube hull

GO SAILING

FOR FUN, RECREATION, PERFECTION AND RACING A wind of change is what the O’pen BIC has brought to the world of dinghy sailing for kids. Young sailors now have a true glide machine for real excitement on the water. The O’pen BIC, with its modern and powerful rig, is a fast boat, quick to respond, self-bailing, and is fitted by the best marine hardware manufacturers (North, Ronstan, Robline). The O’pen BIC is THE link between the Optimist generation and the new generation of sailing dinghies. Launched in 2006, the O’pen BIC has already convinced more than 4000 young sailors. Not only is it a fun boat, for pure enjoyment on the water, but it’s also a clever and quick racing boat. The O’pen BIC is an International ISAF class, and a complete race program has been established world-wide. Recognising the dynamic and modern nature of the O’pen BIC, many sailing federations have chosen it to be their officially-recognised boat for their young sailors.

O’pen BIC | International Class The aim of the International O’pen BIC Class is to provide an exciting format of international and national dinghy sailing for young sailors. The steady annual growth of the Events’ Calendar is proof that the Class’s formula of providing exciting race formats on an attractive boat is a great success. At present there are over 10 countries that have regular event calendars of national competitions, and the international World O’pen Cup is the pinnacle each year. The O’pen Cup event style is very original, with some highly innovative courses and race rules derived from funboarding, where races are short and quick. The course changes regularly and can include crosswind legs and freestyle moves or an adventure race, and protests are judged immediately out on the water so no racing time or effort is wasted! These improvements are in line with ISAF’s Introductory Rules of Sailing, and make a break from the 40 year history of «classic» sailing. O’pen Cups are a volatile cocktail of the fun of modern board sports and pure regatta racing, great for motivating our young sailors and keeping them hooked for life! On top of the busy racing calendar, the O’pen BIC class has also appeared as a junior event alongside the Louis Vuitton Trophy regattas which attract the best regatta sailors in the world. A proof of its modern appeal is its ability to sail alongside the America’s Cup yachts in Nice, Auckland, Sardinia and Dubai. More information on the Class rules and on the various regattas worldwide can be found on the Class website: http://class.openbic.com

GO BOATING

FOCUS ON EXPERIENCE Exceptionnally light, solidly built, incredibly long-lasting and stable, BIC boats have built a solid reputation in the world of leisure boating. The new Sportyak 245 is the result of 35 years of experience and development ! Sportyak 245 : This new mid sized dinghy is light, easy to transport and gives you excellent glide whether rowed or powered by an engine. One, two or three people can fit comfortably in a 245. The double rowing position allows you to choose your seating configuration (see drawing). From ferrying men and equipment to an anchored boat, to getting out to the best fishing spots, to being a great toy for the kid, the Sportyak 245 is very versatile.

The assets of the Sportyak 245 The various carry handles make the boat easy to carry for one or more people. It weighs in at just 39 kg, making it easy to load onto a roof rack.

The catamaran hull gives the best possible stability. The integrated wide rollers allow easy handling over beaches, banks and jetties.

Weight kept always centred, guaranteeing stability One person single sculling

SMALL AND CUTE

Sportyak 213 : Stable, light, long lasting, man-powered or with a small engine, she is perfect in all situations and can be easily carried and stored away. In harbours, lakes, rivers or on the beach, with the children, the Sportyak 213 is the most versatile dinghy available.

Clever details : the rowing seat is fitted with “glove compartments�, the flat rear design is designed for safe upright storage and the cockpit float line is below the level of the floor, allowing the cockpit to self-empty.

Comparison Sportyak 245 versus V-hull As soon as the weight is off-centre a V-Hull becomes unstable and dangerous, unlike the catamaran shape hull of the Sportyak 245, which provides high stability and prevents capsizing.
