Palm FX


River running, freestyle or racing. This is the buoyancy aid for everything you’re doing on, down or in the river.

The Palm FX’s low profile, lightweight and comfort fit design makes it comfortable and provides you with maximum freedom of movement allowing you to focus on paddling and the day ahead. The comfort fit uses soft layers of foam conformed to your body shape keeping the PFD comfortable and secure. Alongside this the 3D anti ride-up waistbelt and 4 easy glide straps allow you to get that perfect snug fit. The easy glide waist and shoulder straps are fully adjustable allowing you to fit the BA comfortably, adapting the size to what you are wearing. Whether that’s multiple layers of thermals and a drysuit in the colder months or just a t-shirt in the summer.

With one large easy to reach zipped pocket, accessing river essentials isn’t an issue. With a small mesh pocket located inside you can easily store ear plugs or a nose clip and mounting points mean that your keys or whistle will be safely secured.

The FX is a comfortable, well-fitting buoyancy aid which is pumped up with floatation without compromising its low profile design. Whether you’re looking for a buoyancy aid which will allow you to improve your whitewater skill set, paddling your first white water rapids and learning the classic freestyle moves in your local hole or if you’re a seasoned paddler canoeing in the lake district, Palm have created the FX for you. Making it the most versatile whitewater PFD for your every need.
