Red Paddle Co 12’6 Elite Race

SUP North UK – Stand up Paddle Board » Red Paddle Co 12’6 Elite Race

The Red Paddle Co Elite race boards are awesome. Even competitive against carbon hard boards in the ISA SUP World Championships and Battle of the Paddle, no other inflatables come close.

All Red Paddle Co 12’6 and 14′ Race boards feature both the patented RSS stiffening system, and the new FFC (forward flex control) batten for extra stiffness in the crucial areas of the board. All race boards also have nose runner fins to help shed water and pierce through chop, battle of the paddle style carry handles for easy carrying and narrow tails to reduce drag and make drafting more difficult for competitors!

Variations on this model include 10’6 Max Race for young paddlers, 12’6 x 28 Elite, 12’6 x 26″ Elite; see below for specs

The package includes a 3 piece alloy nylon travel paddle. We recommend you upgrade to a lighter, high performance carbon paddle to match the speedy board. Get in touch for more information and recommendations


Product Description

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.
