[AUSTIN, TX] April 8, 2011 — Hydrophase (http://www.hydrophase.com) has announced the launch of its Ridesteady boat speed control system from wakeboarding hotbed Austin, Texas.
Designed specifically for the wake sports community, the Ridesteady speed control system incorporates features not found in other systems, including speed-over-water technology, overshoot control, a one-second startup time, real-time lake temperature readings, and other items that address the particular needs of wakeboarders.
“As wakeboarders, we weren’t satisfied with the hand-me-down speed controls available from the competition water-ski industry, so we designed our own,” said Justin Muessig, CEO of Hydrophase, LLC. “Wakeboarders have a different set of needs and priorities, and we've taken those needs into account by building specialized features into the Ridesteady speed control system.”
The Ridesteady speed control system is adjustable in 0.1 mile-per-hour increments and can operate in either fully automatic or more traditional “cruise control” mode. The intuitive in-dash control panel, available in a choice of black aluminum or stainless steel bezel, includes a sunlight-viewable LCD display. The system boasts compatibility with mechanical-throttle recreational boats and has independently passed NMMA and US Coast Guard standards for ignition protection.
Hydrophase LLC is an energetic small company founded to improve the wakeboarding experience for riders of all levels by delivering wakeboarding-focused, high performance products to the wake sport community.
