If you’re in the 14’ race class, this is the
board to get. The Red Paddle Co 14’ Elite is a machine built for speed.
At 14’ long and just 660mm/26” wide, it has
been shaped to cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. It
rides high at 150mm thick, reducing drag, while double nose runner fins
keep the board tracking straight without creating drag, a combination
that lies at the heart of what makes this board so fast and so easy to
control in race conditions.
Our patented RSS system stiffens the board
so there’s no flex, and the board comes with a built-in US Fin Box
system, allowing you to adjust your fin to suit your style. It’s also a
great downwind board – it picks up swell and glides beautifully. All
this in a board you can deflate, pack away and carry home in a backpack!
Extra rigidity to triumph in extreme
circumstances. Forward Flex Control or FFC is a patented innovation by
Red Paddle Co that stiffens the front section of the board to remove the
flex created in sprinting phases of a race. It also increases board
speed to give you the competitive edge. The system is made up of a
carbon compression strut that works in combination with RSS to deliver a
more rigid ride. It is attached during the inflation period.
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, we’ve added a special screw thread
to all of our boards that is compatible with RAM MOUNTSproducts, 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 – 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 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 (see page right), 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
we 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 battens 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. We
looked at how we built boards, and by focusing in on the key areas of
the production process, we have been able to refine each process to make
the very best boards. All Red Paddle Co boards are built using our Tec
Air specification to ensure the best possible build quality. Our
strength comes from the inside.
The 14’0″ Elite is 150mm thick. This
Thickness is perfect for flat water paddling. It gives great stiffness
and means the board floats high to reduce drag in racing conditions. Add
the RSS system to the Race board and you have the stiffest board.
TUNE-ABILITY. YOUR CHOICE.
The 14’0″ Elite 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 straight line
control. The 12’6″ Race also has a nose runner fin that keeps the board
tracking straight while not increasing drag whilst also having a water
displacement runner on the deck to help pierce through chop.
GET CARRIED AWAY. EFFORTLESSLY.
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 straps make sure the board stays put while in
transit. This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage.
