Who's it for? Yoga, pilates and fitness fans
People have always flocked to the water for its tranquillity and to find space to relax and destress.
Early on, we discovered people were taking their Red Paddle Co inflatable SUPs to the water for yoga, pilates and stretching, so we created a board specifically for them. The latest version of this is called the 10’8” Activ, a specially adapted version of our 10’8” Ride. That means it’s made using our Tech Air process, which makes it very rigid, and it’s also nice and wide, so perfect for yoga poses.
The final touch is the EVA deck, which turns it into a full yoga pad. All that said, it’s not just a floating platform – like every board in the Ride family, it glides beautifully over water.
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating New for 2016, MSL 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.
The most innovative inflatable SUPs in the world – Red Paddle Co’s high-performance inflatable SUPs are full of innovation – our mantra is to design and manufacture high-quality boards with zero compromise. This year, we’re introducing MSL fusion technology, which stands for Monocoque Structural Laminate. This involves an industrial process that fuses the second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at raw material stage. MSL reduces hand-gluing errors and the amount of glue we use, which saves 2kg in weight. It also delivers greater stiffness at lower pressures – we recommend inflating our boards to 18-20psi for ultimate performance. Add MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process that makes our boards stiffer, more durable, and better-performing, and our patented RSS stiffening system (see page right), and you have inflatable boards that deliver the world’s most authentic stand-up paddleboard experience.
