The 12’6” 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. This year, we’ve made the Sport in two sizes. The 11’0” offers fast inflation and great flat-water performance for riders up to 90kg/198lb, while the 12’6” is more suited to longer touring trips and/or the larger rider. Both boards are fitted with Red Paddle Co’s patented RSS system for maximum rigidity.
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating 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.
