Red Paddle Co have always been one of the leading brands when it comes to inflatable paddleboards and in 2021 there no exception. They continue to push the boundaries and have packed lots of new premium features into this year’s boards. Read on for more information.
“Owning a Red board is something you can be proud of and our 2021 range is more desirable than any other editions we’ve produced” – Red Paddle Co
We think the first thing you notice with the 2021 models is how striking the design and graphics are. They have streamlined the look of the boards making them clean and stylish. The deck pad now reaches to the tail and wraps closer to the rails, and therefore should offer better comfort and grip.
A big change throughout the whole range for 2021are the new bungees on the nose of all boards. They now come with larger, self closing bungees. Because of their thickness and tension this allows you to safely secure all your gear to your board with confidence. Red Paddle Co are the first brand to move away from the traditional bungee cord, which can be loose and not very good at holding your equipment. We feel these larger bungees are a great new addition for 2021.
The whole of the Ride range has been updated with two new super durable ifins. Red Paddle Co have moved away from the tri-fin setup as they feel the boards will paddle faster and straighter with twin fins. In addition, it should now make it easier to pack the boards away into the bag. Previously with the tri-fin it could be a struggle at times to get it in the bag.
Brand new for 2021 Voyager range, is the V-Hull system which is exclusive to Red Paddle Co. They have been working with the University of Plymouth over the past few years to create this new innovation. The idea is the new hull shape breaks the surface tension of the water, making it easier to paddle through. Therefore, this new shape will help you paddle for longer with less effort!
Twin Traction Fins
Another change for the Voyager range is the fins. They have moved from a central single fin to two slightly smaller twin fins. The reason for this change (similar to the Ride range) is to improve tracking and glide of the boards. The other positive is by having two shorter fins you will be able to go into shallower waters, making the SUP more versatile in different waterways.
The Titan II Pump
We feel that the Titan Pump has always been one of the best iSUP pumps on the market, but for 2021 it just got better! It has been completely re-designed and is now 30% smaller in its packaged size compared to 2020. This will make it so much easier than rolling the pump up inside the board after a session.
The pump’s new features include a built in switch in the chamber isolation valve, a double-ended bayonet hose for attaching to the pump, and a redesigned air box. An integrated pressure gauge and a 90-degree shift in standing position also makes the boards easier to inflate.
5 Year Warranty
Introduced for 2020, the five year warranty continues for 2021. Red Paddle Co believe in their build quality so much that they can offer this extended warranty! All you have to do is register your board on their website within the first 3 months of purchase. This really does show why Red Paddle Co are one of the leading premium SUP brands in the world.
