For 2021, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a more streamlined paddling experience. Our new collection is packed to the rafters with enhanced features and ergonomic designs to make your time on the water more enjoyable than ever. Building on twelve years of paddleboard development, our upgraded boards are easier to paddle and faster to inflate. They also have some premium features that enhance your overall paddling experience. Owning a Red board is something you can be proud of and our 2021 range is more desirable than any other editions we’ve produced.
The new Voyager range is packed with premium features that will make your paddling trips all the more exciting. The board of choice for explorers around the world, a new twin fin set up offers improved tracking and glide. Having two shorter fins rather than one longer fin means you can paddle in shallower waters, opening up a wider variety of waterways for you to explore.
Also brand-new for 2021 is the revolutionary V-Hull system, exclusive to Red Paddle Co. By cleverly tapering the cut of the drop stitch, the new hull breaks the surface tension of the water, making it easier to paddle through. Essentially, the V-Hull helps you paddle for longer with less effort. This new innovation has taken years of research, planning and development with extensive testing at The University of Plymouth’s COAST laboratory.
The most popular inflatable paddleboards in the world just got even better! Every board in the Ride range is now integrated with two super durable, flexible ifins that make the boards straighter and faster to paddle than a three-fin set-up. The ifins also provide increased agility and performance in the surf and make the boards easier to pack down into their bag. For a fantastic all-round paddle experience, the Ride 2021 range now offers even more versatility in a wide range of conditions.
Style and speed go hand-in-hand with the new Sport range. Designed for the slightly more experienced paddler, these boards now deliver even more dynamic performance with the all new speed tail. This brand-new feature offers nippy manoeuvrability thanks to a reduced board width and a sleek, drawn-out nose section. The rubberised edge on the tail aids water release, so the boards cut through water cleanly, allowing you to paddle faster and further.
We’ve never been a brand to follow fads or trends. Instead, we focus on creating classic designs that look good forever. Our 2021 range has a more streamlined look and feel. Retro stripes extend down the side of the rail and pinstripe details on the underside of the board meet to form a surf-style graphic. The deck pad now reaches right down to the tail, wraps closer to the rails, and offers superior comfort and grip. We spend countless hours meticulously designing, selecting and testing our graphics and colour-ways. Taking inspiration from the world around us, our boards have been designed to reflect their surroundings allowing you to get the very most out of your time on the water - year after year.
All boards in the Ride range are now integrated with two super durable, flexible ifins, making the boards straighter and faster to paddle than a three fin set-up. The ifins also provide increased agility and performance in the surf and make the board easier to pack down into its bag.
All Red Paddle Co boards now come with larger, flat self-closing bungee straps. This new design creates extra tension, safely securing all your gear to the board, so you can paddle with confidence. Ergonomic tubular handles also create a cushioned, more comfortable grip for when you’re carrying your board to the water, or the campsite.
All boards come with a patch over the fin mountings for more discrete and unified look.
We have introduced a twin fin set up on our Voyager board range – improving tracking and glide. By having two shorter fins rather than one longer fin, you’ll be able to get into much shallower waters, opening up a wider variety of waterways to paddle.
Red Paddle Co’s revolutionary Titan II pump has been completely reimagined and re-engineered for 2021. Improved fixtures and fittings make it even more durable and a 30% reduction in its packaged size makes packing it much easier. The pump’s new features include an integrated switch in the chamber isolation valve, a double-ended bayonet hose for attaching to the pump, and a redesigned air box. An integrated pressure gauge and a 90-degree shift in standing position also makes the boards easier to inflate. Constant innovation is what has led us to push the boundaries of inflation technology, and as such, we’re confident that there’s nothing quite like the Titan II pump on the market.
At Red Paddle Co, we love the great outdoors, that’s why we do as much as we can to protect this amazing planet. Our design team are constantly coming up with innovative ways of being eco-friendly through reducing our waste and our use of adhesives and dyes. We’re proud to say that our board production facility is now 100% waste-free and our cardboard packaging is 100% recyclable. All our boards are designed to last, using MSL pressure lamination, which means we have an incredibly low return rate of just 0.5% globally. On average, it takes us 72 hours to make each and every Red Paddle Co board. We carefully consider every detail, including how to design for disassembly, using pure materials.
Who else would drive a 22-tonne digger over a paddleboard to prove its durability? At Red, we design products that stand up to the most extreme adventures. Our exclusive TEC AIR process is the most rigorous quality control process in the SUP market, so you know you’re buying the highest quality. All boards in the 2021 range now come with an extended five-year warranty when registered on our website. As Co-Founder John Hibbard puts it, ‘we stand behind our boards as much as we stand on them’. This fantastic offer blows the industry standard 12-month warranty out of the water and further demonstrates why Red Paddle Co is the number one premium inflatable SUP brand in the world.
