Gekko Sports Revo 6.7 2009

OVERVIEW

With its sleek aerodynamic styling and high-performance look, the Gekko Sports Revo 6.7 is a smart choice for the multisport buyer who wants to set himself apart on the lake. The digitally designed hull, which was created by aerospace engineers, is symmetrical down to the 1,000th of an inch, so it produces perfectly balanced wakes and an accurate and agile ride. The interior is just as unique. The steering wheel's polished metal accents, easy-to-read Faria gauges and everywhere-you-look lizard emblems kick up the luxury factor. And the you'll-see-it-here integrated platform and standard XTP tower, which boasts a crazy-thick 3-inch diameter, are enough to stoke any wakeboarder.

FAVORITE FEATURE:

**Driver's Seat

The Gekko Revo 6.7's maxed-out, 102-inch beam creates plenty of comfortable space, from the wraparound lounge to the playpen-style bow. But the Sky View driver's seat is the best spot in the house. In fact, its deep, ergonomic design is one of the most comfortable we've come across.**

THE WAKES

With the 1,000 pounds of factory ballast, the Gekko Revo 6.7 kicks mellow ramps that are approachable for even the youngest ripper. More advanced wakeboarders will want to add more weight — human or otherwise. This nearly 22-footer's agile handling, impressive for a V-drive, makes driving double-ups and re-entries a snap.
