Red Paddle Co’s Elite race boards remind you of the no-compromise mission of the brand. Each model’s shape has been carefully designed, prototyped and tested to make the fastest inflatable boards in the world. The board is fitted with Red Paddle Co’s patented FFC (forward flex control) batten and RSS stiffening system making it extra stiff and responsive even in choppy water – you won’t find these features on any other inflatable boards. The high performance, glass hex single centre fin gives stability and tracking, while shedding weed and not adding drag, while the nose fin minimises sideways drift. The standard US fin box means you can also use your race fin of choice for added speed or stability depending on the conditions.
What SUP North thinks
The Red Elite race boards are phenomenal in performance, but also great fun to paddle. We have used them on lakes, rivers and on the sea, including downwind paddling and raced them on Windermere, Head of the Dart, Battle of the Thames and the Northern SUP Racing winter series. In races, they are fast with great glide and tracking – high performance boards – that pack into a rucksack comfortable enough to carry for miles!.
In the box.
Each Red Paddle Co Elite race board comes complete with the Red Original Classic wheeled backpack, RSS Battens, FFC forward flex control batten, glass hex race fin with tool-less bolt and the Red Paddle Co Titan pump , which makes inflation to 18-22 psi easy, leaving you more time to paddle.
