Red Paddle Co’s exclusive Titan Pump is really taking stand up paddle boarding on an inflatable board to the next level in 2015. We all love the convenience of a board that packs down for transport and storage but, let’s be honest, no one loves the pumping (apart from the warm-up!).
The Titan Pump is a brand new innovation and features both a high volume and a high pressure barrel combined in one pump. You start inflating using both barrels, which means a lot of air goes into the board very fast. Then switch to the high pressure barrel only to finish inflating the board to 15-25psi with no problems.
We got our hands on the new pump recently and were blown away by the speed and ease of inflation. It’s 50% faster than competitor’s pumps – we inflated the 9’2″ Surf Star and also the 11″ Sport to 20psi in under 2 minutes 20 seconds! The action of the pump is totally positive, without being difficult to keep it moving. The wise base makes it really stable and the Hi Flo handle has an integrated guage which shows your progress clearly. Check out the video below
The Titan pump now comes as standard with most Red Paddle Co boards – get in touch if you’re ready for your own SUP board, and will be available as an upgrade very soon – watch our Facebook page for news!
