O’Neill Gooru Teck Comp Vest
The O’Neill Gooru Comp Vest stays true to its legendary name, but has been upgraded with a front zipper and Nitrolite foam.
The O’Neill Gooru Comp Vest has always been the best-selling comp vests in wakeboarding. Never settling for mediocrity, the team at O’Neill’s Area 52 R&D Facility totally redesigned it a couple years ago to make this legend even better.
In the past the Gooru had flaunted a sleek pullover design. Although it looked sweet, all too often it was difficult to get in and out of all by yourself, especially when wet. With the opportunity to redesign this classic Comp Vest, O’Neill fixed that frustration and added a front zipper closure that still gives it that iconic look without the hassle of a pullover vest.
The Nytrolite foam technology has to be the coolest part about this vest. It is three times lighter than traditional foam and absorbs 20% less water, helping reduce the overall weight of the vest. It is also approximately 10% more buoyant than PVC foam, reducing the amount of foam needed for equal float in the water.
