2018 Fanatic Fly Air Premium 9’8″, endless possibilities.
The Fanatic Fly Air range features optimised thickness provides outstanding rigidity without additional air pressure, whilst the extra volume caters to those looking for an even easier ride. The Fly Air models come in four sizes, 9’0″, 9’8″, 10’4″ and the super floaty 10’8″. Additional side fins supply extra grip when catching little waves.
To outline our leading standards in terms of quality, design and durability, we offer the Fly Air in two constructions; the Lightweight Stringer technology (known as Fly Air), as well as the Premium construction (known as the Fly Air Premium) with Double Layer Light technology, and additional third layer rail-bands. Quite simply, this is the best inflatable SUP construction available on the market with an incredible stiffness: weight ratio. Great attention to detail ensures fast and easy inflate/deflate functions and effortless transportation. All our Premium Fly Air models feature a mastfoot insert for windsurfing option.
Double Layer Light
The Double Layer Light technology is Fanatic’s Premium construction. Featuring a second PVC layer, which is welded directly to the core layers and around the V-Drop Stitch material – the heart of each Fanatic Inflatable. This construction style is on par with Starboard’s Deluxe Fusion construction and Red Paddle Co’s MSL Fusion construction.
An additional third layer of coloured rail bands round off the highly durable and premium quality, with stylish optics of the deck print. The benefits of the Double Layer Light construction when compared to the standard Double Layer technology is a 20 – 25 % reduction in weight, and around 25 – 30 % increase in stiffness. Simply the best inflatable technology out there!
