Alessander Lenzi rode the National Tour and the Worlds Finals on a Wamilton built and prepared Superjet™. It’s apparent what these watercrafts are capable of in the hands of professional freestyle riders, but we wanted to go even further. Not only did we want to discover some of Wamilton’s tricks, but we also wanted to find out about the performance.
Lenzi’s engine has a Wamilton’s Girdled Head kit with interchangeable domes. The cylinder has been ported, and Lenzi also runs a Factory Pipe exhaust. We put Lenzi’s boat on the water -not to do tricks, but to document the performance. Since Lenzi is not looking for top-end speed the boat is set up for lots of low-end torque. This low-end power comes from a strong engine combined with a modified freestyle impeller. Wamilton became our test rider for the radar runs, and had his hands full trying to keep the boat in the water just to get some decent runs.
To say that this boat has good low-end acceleration is an understatement; the acceleration was amazingly quick at 1.43 seconds for 0-30 mph, and top speed was 52.57 mph -which is probably a little lower than what the craft truly can do, but we were really after the acceleration numbers. Helping Lenzi handle all the power and keep the nose down is Wamilton’s composite ride plate. This carbon fiber plate is a lot lighter than the stock model, and improves handling greatly.
