2020 Naish Inflatable 12’6″ x 30″ One
Who’s it for? Paddlers of any level looking to test their skills racing on a ONE-design board.
Why is it unique? The only ONE-design board on the market featuring an integrated number guide for quick stance reference. This board is light, stiff, durable and very easy to use.
What’s new? New X-Weave drop stitch construction provides a high pressure rating which allows you to pump the board up to 20 PSI for superior stiffness.
N1SCO stands for “Naish International SUP Class Organization,” which is a one-design racing class where all riders compete exclusively on the ONE 12’6″. N1SCO competitions include sprint, intermediate-distance and long-distance racing, as well as team relays that are accessible for any level rider. They are competitive, fun events that are easy to follow, thrilling to watch and a great social experience for the whole family.
X-Weave Drop Stitch
This year, the Naish single layer inflatable paddle boards use a new “X-Weave” drop stitch material. The drop stitch is positioned in an X-pattern, which evenly distributes tension throughout the board and pressure on the skin of the board. This provides the best stiffness-to-weight ratio possible.
Stringers are mainly added to the tops and bottoms of boards to improve stiffness. This is achieved by reducing the elongation and compression of the top and bottom skins of the board.
Double Layer Rails
Naish inflatables are now built with a wide, double PVC layer on the rail. This provides great durability, increased longevity and enhanced stiffness.
Stiffness matters – Here how is works
Assuming that the pressure applied is high enough—when a board bends, it acts similarly to an I-Beam, in which the top skin compresses, while the bottom skin does the opposite (extends).
A stiffer board moves more efficiently, when you paddle, as more of the energy you spend propels you forward rather than bending the board. This is why we use fusion material and carbon stringers on our high-end boards: to achieve the stiffest top and bottom skin possible in compression and extension.
This year, all Naish boards are rated with a stiffness value; the higher the number, the stiffer the board. For reference, the new Maliko Inflatable 14’0″ x 25″ (constructed with Fusion drop stitch and double carbon stringers) has a stiffness rating of 9.5. Compared to last year’s Maliko 14’0″ x 26″ inflatable, which had a 4.73 rating. The new model is much stiffer.
