grey,orange or yellow if you go for black you will probably regret it on a hot summers day, blue would look good too.

If I had my choice of colour I'd have to got for contrasting colours like, Black hull, yellow tubes with a wide black rubbing strip and some rather neatly cut wear patches AKA, Avon style. Looks well cool .

You'd be better off wit black toobs with yellow patches. yellow and red fade sooner! It is my understanding that black, dark grey and dark blue stay looking good for quite a surprisingly long time! Bit like me really!

Go Blue!

Hi Marko, Go blue with pressure release valves. Blue Tubes & orange hull loks smart. We have just launched our new excaliber rib yesterday for seceret trials and have blue tubes with off white hull. Looks good too!
Best of luck with whatever

Thanks all - Final vote???

Oh wow! Cheers again for so much good feedback...

Bearing in mind that hull, seat covers and hatches are black, hard bow cone, inner hull and seat pods orange and deck is grey, I think that I've narrowed it down to the following choices:

1- Grey tubes (with black wear patches) to key into deck and seat/hull colours and generally go all Viking - Not sure whether to go light or dark grey tho'...

2- Blue Tubes (again with black wear patches) as blue seems to be practical, not so prosaic - there's a word you probably don't get on RIB forums everyday - as grey and more the colour of the moment. This is also a consideration as we may subsequently sell the boat!

Your votes please!

I would say that blue tubes may slightly look the better and also may have more appeal to a buyer it shows the dirt less also, Trust me i know i have navy blue tubes on my osprey , Ok the hull colour is differant (white) but navy blue also goes with orange, black and grey.

I like the Avon blue, but isn't that difficult to get or something?
