Red Paddle Co. Elite 12’6″
The Red Paddle Co. Elite 12’6″ inflatable SUP’s are long and narrow. Consequently they are lightning-quick through the water but also very easy to manoeuvre. Control, glide and ride. Being inflatable they pack-down and are easily transported to races all over the world. Not a racer, you just like going faster more efficiently.
Despite its practicality, there’s no compromise on performance. Red Paddle Co. boards all have unique innovations as in the Elite series.
RSS-The patented Rocker Stiffening System
The patented Rocker Stiffening System or RSS for short, counters flex with two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the side of the board. Forward Flex Control System (FFC) hence stiffens the front section of the board using a carbon compression strut to remove flex that can be created in a race. This then channels this towards the back of the board as a result increasing overall board speed. The two combined together result in the fastest inflatable SUP’s currently available on the market.
The Red Paddle Co. Elite 12’6″ features double nose fins to aid tracking and displacing water from the deck of the board. The glass fibre centre fin supplied gives the right amount of grip therefore not adding drag. The angled design prevents any debris from getting stuck on the fin. Multiple carry handles are included to provide fast entry and exit of the water. These have been designed not to get in the way during racing. The diamond cut, Red embossed deck pad provides ultimate grip in control in all stages of a race.
The 28″ wide Elite is the perfect entry board to racing. Is the majority of your racing is done on the open ocean or large lakes? Then the stability offered by the 28″ Elite allows you to focus more on putting the power down than staying balanced. For more experienced paddlers, the narrower 12’6″ x 26″ Elite offers proven class winning performance in a wide variety of conditions.
