How Red Paddle Boards are made Stronger, lighter, stiffer -
the 2016 range of Red Paddle Co boards is the best they've ever made.



The most innovative inflatable SUPs in the world

Lighter/Stiffer “MSL” Red Paddle Boards

Red Paddle Co. 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 drop-stitch core at raw material stage.

Weights: Due to the construction methods, quoted weights are +/− 10%  (usually on the lighter end of the scale)
MSL reduces hand-gluing errors and the amount of glue we use, which saves 2kg in weight. Add MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process that makes our boards stiffer, more durable, and better-performing, and our patented RSS stiffening system (see below), and you have inflatable boards that deliver the world's most authentic stand-up paddleboard experience.

 

Rocker Stiffening System Red Paddle are really proud of their Rocker Stiffening System, or RSS. It's unique to Red Paddle Co - we designed and patented it to make some of our bigger, expert boards even stiffer to deliver greater performance. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated onto the side of the board. We've proved this makes the board up to 40 per cent stiffer. RSS features on ourl 100mm/3.93" boards (excluding 9'4") to bring them up to the same stiffness as our 120mm/4.72" boards, while maintaining the same manoeuvrability.
The RSS system consists of two lexan battens, which are slid into the batten pockets along each rail (side), adding significant extra stiffness through the middle of the board. You don't have to use them, the board works fine without them. But they do make a big difference to the rigidity and performance.

The Titan 2017 Pump – a revolutionary dual chamber inflatable paddle board pump that will inflate your board in half the time with half the effort, and still pump to 25PSI easily.

The Titan Pump (A Red Paddle Co registered design) dramatically reduces the time taken and effort required to inflate your board. The pump mixes double chamber performance and a clever switching system and unique Hi-Flo handle system to achieve the new bench mark in inflatable board pump technology. The Titan is part of Red Paddle Co’s commitment to producing inflatable boards that offer an authentic paddling experience. Stiffer boards create a better ride. One of the major contributing factors to board rigidity is the pressure inside the board.

We also supply our Blue Chip Gizmo which can be used in conjunction with an electrical pump and we'd recommend that if you do choose to operate the board at pressures of 25psi+

 Blue Chip and Red Paddle Co - ahead of the game

Red Air Rucksack:
Red Paddle Co. i-SUP "Wheelie Bag" Rucksack: To create a bag that is genuinely new you have to start again, and that’s what Red We know that when it comes to using an inflatable board, paddling is only part of the experience. This is why we’ve spent just as much time developing the absolute best luggage system for your board. 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 strap makes sure the board stays put while in transit. This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage

The Gold Standard in construction:
Red Air are now firmly established as the world's leading brand of inflatable paddleboards – leading the market in almost every country with a paddleboarding scene. The brand only make inflatable stand up paddle boards, they've spent the last 5 years working full-time on mastering this entirely new manufacturing technology, & their expertise and attention to detail really shows. While there are now many brands of inflatable paddleboard on the market, the unique and complex internal construction and multi-layered skin used by Red Air allows their paddleboards to be safely inflated to internal pressures of up to 40PSI – more than twice what most other brands can handle. Since the performance of an inflatable paddleboard is all derived from its internal pressure, it's safe to say that Red Air are literally twice as good as any of the competition! (For more information on inflatable board construction and what to look for in an inflatable check this site.)
Red Airs are super-tough – they're designed to be abused. The huge reinforcements along the rails means that the boards can be bounced off rocks and bashed around on the beach year in year out. There are no gimmicks such as removable fins (which simply get lost and offer no increase in performance anyway), everything is designed to last. Whereas other brands have to use generic components for their fittings, Red Air design and produce their own. The end result is a fantastically high quality package, yet at a very affordable price – and a year international warranty.

FCS II CONNECT FINS:

For 2017 we have collaborated with FCS, the world leading surfboard fin creators. Now our Explorer, Sport and Whip boards all feature FCS Connect Fins that simply slot in by hand, taking mere seconds They have a specialy designed wear-resistant barrel and corrosion resistant titanium pin mechanism incorporated into their base. The rest of the fin is also extremely durable and resistant.

Blue Chip has good stocks of the FCS Connect fins


Race Fin
Most All race boards will come with the Red Race fin as standard, the fin box is also compatible with the FCS II Connect fin system and cruising fins



iFin system:
Most boards in the Red Paddle Co range come with built-in fins - the high-performance iFin system. These are moulded to be ultra-durable and easy to pack away for transport, You don't need any tools, replacements or spares with the iFin system -even if the fins get bent out of shape, you can pour hot water over them to reshape them. We're 100 per cent confident in the performance and durability of the iFin system, and you can be. too.



All Red Paddle boards come with the Ram Mount accessory mounting system as standard. these accept GoPro and GPS accessories which are readily available.
