2018 RED PADDLE 12’6″ SPORT MSL
Who’s it for? People looking for more speed and glide to enjoy longer touring trips
Our range of Sport inflatable SUPs are designed for paddlers who want to up their game from our Ride range. They offer enhanced performance, extra capabilities as well as plenty of class.
The 12’6″ Sport is the longest of the three, providing the most glide and speed whilst still being easy to paddle. It is a great board to bridge the gap to our race boards however the 30″ width offers great stability so you can really enjoy longer touring trips. If you are looking for a board that will eat up the miles in a leisurely fashion then look no further. The Red embossed decked not only provides a great cosmetic finish but also offers additional grip whilst paddling.
As with all of our Sport boards, the 12’6″ comes as standard with a durable fin from world leading surfboard fin creators FCS. They slot into the fin box easily by hand and are secured in place with a finger bolt meaning you don’t need to take your tool kit to the beach.
The 12’6″ Sport comes with our industry leading Titan Pump which enables you to pump your board in half the time, with half the effort compared to other SUP pumps. The board is also easily transported and stored in our All Terrain backpack which allows you to Explore Your World!
HOW DOES RSS MAKE THINGS STIFFER
Our patented RSS, or Rocker Stiffening System, makes our boards up to 40 per cent stiffer by displacing the riders weight over a greater length of the board. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated on to the side of the board. The battens are attached to cords held down with velcro tabs, making them really easy to remove.
LIGHTWEIGHT BUT STRONG
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating, MSL involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process saves almost 2kg in weight whilst making the boards stiffer at lower pressures. With our third generation of MSL material now in use, our boards are more durable than ever, if you don’t believe us then check out this video of us driving a 22 tonne digger over it!
TITAN – THE KING OF PUMPS
When you unpack your Red Paddle Co board for the first time, inside you’ll find the lightweight Titan pump. It’s the world’s best SUP pump and was created by our expert engineers to make inflating your board a cinch. The secret is in the dual-chamber system and high-flow handle, which pumps air into your board at up to 60mph, ensuring it inflates to the recommended pressure level while using less of your energy.
