As to a stand-up’s legendary handling and agility, the SX-R hull tracks more precisely, and more aggressively, than ever before. Runabout-style sponsons have been added toward the stern to lock in the back end, virtually eliminating the chance of a spinout. As before, I found the craft responded best to a strong inside lean, but in an unexpected twist, I found the hull could also be turned quite flat for those looking for a tamer ride. Just choose one style or the other and shift your weight accordingly; I powered into an aggressive corner without committing and was quickly flung as the craft nimbly pivoted beneath my feet. The V-shaped bottom also proved better at handling rough water.
