    The succession has arrived

    The biggest, and perhaps most important difference, is the size of the baseplate. By making it significantly smaller it fits better in the user’s hand. It also has a smaller capsule, same as the Race Thumb series, which significantly reduces the risk of bubbles. Another difference is with the stencil holes. They are withdrawn from the baseplate and put in a separate “scale and stencil hole” plastic card that comes together with the compass. Everything to keep the compass as clean as possible. We changed the needle design to increase the map visibility. This great needle stays the same. The SILVA Jet needle means that it’s extremely fast and stable which is great when you need to make quick decisions during a race. The rubber feet beneath the compass means better map contact and minimum risk of slipping.

    This compass is perfect for the orienteer or whoever is in need of a compass with outstanding quality, needle settling time and stability during running. If you are looking for an elite baseplate compass without fuss, you should go for the Race Plate compass. If you also are in need of a magnifier, you should pick the Race Plate Zoom. The magnifier is smaller than on its predecessor but have larger magnifying.
