The 11’3” Sport offers a step up from the
Ride family and has been designed for the more experienced paddler to
deliver more speed and dynamic performance (although they’re not race
boards). Their secret lies in their shape. They’re narrower than a Ride,
so they cut through the water more cleanly, and the drawn-out nose
section gives them more glide across the water.
The 11’0” offers fast inflation and great
flat-water performance for riders up to 90kg/198lb, the 11’3″ is suited
to a slightly larger rider, while the 12’6” is ideal for longer touring
trips. Both boards are fitted with Red Paddle Co’s patented RSS system
for maximum rigidity.
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 also saves almost 2kg in weight and
makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
For 2017, RPC have added a special screw
thread to all of their boards that is compatible with RAM MOUNTS
products, the world leading accessory bracket manufacturer. Enabling you
to securely attach a range of accessories, from GPS devices and cameras
to fishing rods and cup holders.
All boards come as standard in our
innovative MSL Fusion technology.

THE FUTURE IS FUSION
The most innovative inflatable SUPs in the
world – Red Paddle Co’s high-performance inflatable SUPs are full of
innovation – their mantra is to design and manufacture high-quality
boards with zero compromise. This year, they’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 dropstitch core at raw material stage. MSL
reduces hand-gluing errors and the amount of glue we use, which saves
2kg in weight. It also delivers greater stiffness at lower pressures –
we recommend inflating our boards to 18-20psi for ultimate performance.
Add MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process that makes our boards
stiffer, more durable, and better-performing, and our patented RSS
stiffening system, and you have inflatable boards that deliver the
world’s most authentic stand-up paddleboard experience.
INCREDIBLY STIFF. BY DESIGN.
By looking at how and where a board
flexes RPC have developed and patented the Rocker Stiffening System
(RSS) to increase rigidity. It works by inserting stiffening battens
along the rails of the board. The battens then work against the downward
force of the rider to produce a stiffer board by preventing flex –
similar to how a stringer works on a hard board. The stiffening strips
are removable for easy board rolling and can be stored in the carry bag
for transportation to and from the water.
LESS PUMPING, MORE PADDLING.
The Dual Cylinder system of the Titan pump
combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the
time and energy required to inflate your board. It puts the volume into
your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher
pressure. A revolution in pumping technology!
THE BEST DESIGN. FOR THE BEST PERFORMANCE.
Tec Air is not a product, it’s a process.
RPC looked at how they built boards, and by focusing in on the key areas
of the production process, they have been able to refine each process to
make the very best boards. All Red Paddle Co boards are built using
their Tec Air specification to ensure the best possible build quality.
Their strength comes from the inside.
The 11’0″ Sport is 120mm/4.72″ thick. This
Thickness is perfect for providing a super stable platform and keeping
your feet dry without being affected by wind. The extra thickness also
provides great stiffness but is still easy to pump up. Combined with the
RSS system we are able to offer the stiffest boards in class with the
TUNE-ABILITY. YOUR CHOICE.
The 11’0″ Sport utilises a low profile US
box fin system. This allows you to put in your favourite flat water fin.
The board is supplied with a fin designed to work for all round
GET CARRIED AWAY. EFFORTLESSLY.
After covering over 100,000 miles with their
boards RPC had a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate
bag. The 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 straps make sure the board stays put while in
transit. This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage.
