Starboard Inflatable 12′ x 33″ iGO Deluxe
The 2019 Starboard Inflatable 12′ x 33″ iGO Deluxe is an evolution of the 12′ x 33″ Atlas. The iGO Deluxe features superior glide for an all-round shape. Yet has a comfortable 33” width for more stability. One of the bestselling shapes for larger paddlers or beginners who need the extra stability.
The new improved 12′ iGO features a wider, rounder nose and slightly wider tail. This creates a straighter outline for extra stability and improved tracking. Thus the perfect blend of speed and stability. Such a fantastic cruising board and will support a lot of weight.
Featuring Starboard’s own Double Chamber Deluxe fusion construction for safety first and improved stiffness. The new 2019, Welded Seam Technology makes 12′ iGO one of Starboard’s more popular all round and beginner boards.
Double Chamber, safety first, ultra stiff
The secondary chamber offers up to 42 liters of safety flotation. Requiring only 15PSI. Starboard pioneered Double Chamber technology in the 2013 Ocean Rescue inflatable paddle board. It is now revised, improved and gives the paddlers peace of mind while paddling.
The secondary chamber doubles the sidewalls hence acts like a roll able I-beam. Starting just behind the standing area and continuing forward. The chamber is placed in the most critical area for flex. This now reduces deflection by 20-40%. The feeling of paddling with the stiff double I-beam stringer is very similar to a hard board. This provides an authentic paddling experience.
- Top and bottom layers are fused in a single, glue-less process. Lighter, stronger.
- The double chamber therefore increases the hull’s stiffness immensely
- the UD drop-stitch and 3k Carbon fiber compression rail band adds further rigidity.
