2024 Red Paddle Co Elite 12’6″




The 12’6″ Elite MSL inflatable paddleboard is a pure racing machine, completely redesigned for ambitious paddlers who are hungry for competition. Well-balanced yet unapologetically built for speed, it’s narrow and fast, redefining what’s possible in the 12’6″ fleets. Race-tuned for rapid acceleration, blistering pace, arrow-true tracking, and mark-rounding manoeuvrability.

At just 25″ wide the 12’6″ Elite speeds through the water with minimal resistance, its square-tailed planshape extending volume into the rear for reliable stability – particularly around the turns. Built in our new ultra-light, super-stiff MSL®800 double-drop-stitch material, reinforced with RSS battens, this race-winning shape weighs remarkably little but is amazingly stiff. (So stiff, in fact, that at this length no FFC rod is required.)

Reengineered EVA rail risers promote full-power paddling and effective footsteering while the central carry handle and forward side handles are perfectly positioned for portages and transitions. For training practicality it features adjustable bungees, a bottle holder, and M6 accessory mount.

This package comes with four options Board Only, No paddle, Hybrid Tough and Prime paddles:

Board only:
Just the board which means no bag, paddle or pump.

Paddle only:
Includes the board, pump and bag but no paddle so is perfect if you already have a paddle.

Hybrid Tough:

If you’re after a durable nylon blade with a lightweight shaft then our new Hybrid Tough is the best paddle for you. The rigidity of the nylon blade combined with the flexibility of the hybrid shaft and overall lightweight feel makes the Hybrid Tough an excellent paddle for rivers or shallow paddling.


This performance paddle uses a carbon weave for greater strength whilst keeping the paddle super light and responsive. The blade shape is a teardrop design with a single dihedral blade face. This allows water to flow evenly off each side creating a smooth and stable stroke, whilst the double concave offers the user to really put the power down. The stylish design has been laser etched into the paddle so it will never fade.
