The 14’0″ class is aimed at the slightly larger rider or those looking to compete over larger distances. The 14’0″ Elite inflatable SUP’s come in two sizes with the 27″ being the slightly wider of the two. The wider tail section offers fantastic stability and more manoeuvrable compared to the 14’0″ x 25″ Elite, making it a great all round race board.
The 14’0″ x 27″ Elite benefits from all of the latest Red Paddle Co innovations such as their patented Rocker Stiffening System or RSS for short. This counters any flex through two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the side of the board; In addition to RSS, the patented Forward Flex Control System (FFC) then adds rigidity to the front of the board using a carbon compression rod to prevent flex that can be created in a race, channeling the energy towards the back of the board which increases overall board speed. RSS and FFC work together to create the stiffest, fastest inflatable SUPs.
The board is also packed full of other features: Double nose fins aid tracking and displacing water from the deck of the board; The glass fibre centre fin supplied as standard gives the right amount of grip without adding drag, whilst the angled design prevents any debris from getting stuck on the fin; Multiple carry handles are included to provide fast entry and exit of the water and have been designed not to get in the way during racing; The diamond cut, Red embossed deck pad provides ultimate grip in control in all stages of a race.
When you have finished racing the board then rolls up and fits into Red Original’s amazing back pack so can be transported anywhere in the world without the risk of damage.
Timeless design: The Red Paddle Co iconic design has been updated for 2021 with a more streamlined look and feel. The extended Red embossed deck pad now reaches right down to the tail, wraps closer to the rails, and offers superior comfort and grip. The diamond-cut rear provides extra stability for performing step back turns, or for riding in bigger waves.
Ergonomic tubular handles on all boards to give a cushioned, comfy grip when carrying your board.
