THE FUTURE IS FUSION
The most innovative inflatable SUPs in the world – Red Paddle Co’s high-performance inflatable SUPs are full of innovation – our mantra is to design and manufacture high-quality boards with zero compromise. This year, we’re introducing MSL fusion technology, which stands for Monocoque Structural Laminate. This involves an industrial process that fuses the second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at raw material stage. MSL reduces hand-gluing errors and the amount of glue we use, which saves 2kg in weight. It also delivers greater stiffness at lower pressures – we recommend inflating our boards to 18-20psi for ultimate performance. Add MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process that makes our boards stiffer, more durable, and better-performing, and our patented RSS stiffening system (see page right), and you have inflatable boards that deliver the world’s most authentic stand-up paddleboard experience.
INCREDIBLY STIFF. BY DESIGN.
By looking at how and where a board flexes we have developed and patented the Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) to increase rigidity. It works by inserting stiffening battens along the rails of the board. The battens then work against the downward force of the rider to produce a stiffer board by preventing flex – similar to how a stringer works on a hard board. The stiffening strips are removable for easy board rolling and can be stored in the carry bag for transportation to and from the water.
LESS PUMPING, MORE PADDLING.
The Dual Cylinder system of the Titan pump combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the time and energy required to inflate your board. It puts the volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure. A revolution in pumping technology!
THE BEST DESIGN. FOR THE BEST PERFORMANCE.
Tec Air is not a product, it’s a process. We looked at how we built boards, and by focusing in on the key areas of the production process, we have been able to refine each process to make the very best boards. All Red Paddle Co boards are built using our Tec Air specification to ensure the best possible build quality. Our strength comes from the inside.
The 9’8″ Ride is 100mm thick. This Thickness is perfect for smaller riders looking for all round performance or heavier riders looking to head out into the surf. The thinner rails make for better control on the wave face and while paddling out, and keep the riders centre of effort lower to offer a more stable platform. Combined with the RSS system we are able to offer the stiffest boards in class with the best performance
We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. Nothing comes close to our tried and tested iFin system on our allround boards. No tools, replacements or spares are needed for the iFin system
GET CARRIED AWAY. EFFORTLESSLY.
After covering over 100,000 miles with our boards we had a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate bag.Our all new bag has the most significant developments yet seen with inflatable board bags. It has integrated wheels that make travelling through airports a pleasure.The hidden back pack system can be stowed when not in use and is super comfy when you need to put the board on your back.The front loading system makes packing and unpacking super simple.The internal straps make sure the board stays put while in transit.This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage.
