If you’re getting serious about the 12’6” racing class, you’ll
need a super-fast board that’s been developed to compete against the
best – and win. That board is the Red Paddle Co 12’6” Elite, the fastest
board in its class.
The secret behind its speed is in the details. It utilises our
patented RSS system, which stiffens the board so there’s no flex, a
common flaw in inflatable race boards. It’s also 5.90”/150mm thick,
which raises the board out of the water, reducing drag, and it has
double nose runner fins that keep the board tracking straight without
causing drag. Plus it has a US Fin Box system so you can adjust your fin
to suit your style. It’s already taken hard board racers by surprise –
who knew you could compete on an inflatable?
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating New for 2016, 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 also saves almost 2kg in weight and makes
the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
