RED Paddle Co. 12’6 ELITE MSL
The inflatable 12’6 Elite is long and narrow, which means it is lightning-quick through the water but also very easy to manoeuvre, control, glide and ride. Being inflatable it packs-down and can be easily transported to races all over the world.
Despite its practicality, there’s no compromise on performance. All Elite boards feature unique innovations which can be found on Red Paddle Co boards: The patented Rocker Stiffening System or RSS for short, counters flex with two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the side of the board; Forward Flex Control System (FFC) then stiffens the front section of the board using a carbon compression strut to remove flex that can be created in a race and channels this towards the back of the board increasing overall board speed. The two combined work together to create the fastest inflatable SUP’s currently available on the market.
The board also features double nose fins to 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.
Forward Flex Control (FFC): The revolutionary FFC is a patented system designed to make Red Paddle Co’s 12’6 and 14’0 Elite the
most rigid available ensuring the paddler a competitive edge.
Our Forward Flex Control or FFC for short, works by controlling flex from above the top forward section of the iSUP. The all-new
FFC stiffens the front section of the paddleboard to remove flex created in sprinting phases of a race. The Forward Flex Control
system consists of a two part carbon rod that is inserted before fully inflating the board completely by clipping it into the mounting
base on the nose and locking it into the standing area EVA deck base with a lever that puts it under load. The rod then stabilises
and therefore stiffens the forward section of the board and eliminates almost all the flex in the nose. When combined with the
RSS battens as well as inflation of 20PSI, the result is seriously impressive.
Rocker Stiffening System (RSS): Unique to Red Paddle Co. – The Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) was designed and patented to make the more performance orientated Red Paddle Co boards even stiffer. Paddleboards that feature RSS come with two stiffening battens which can be slotted into pockets that are individually laminated onto the side of the board (ensuring a perfect fit). It has been proven to make the board up to 45% stiffer.
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.
New Titan II pump! Included with all of our SUP packages, Our newly refined industry-leading Titan II pump takes you from neatly-packed to fully-inflated in half the time, with half the effort.
