Description

2020 Naish Inflatable 14’0″ x 30″ Glide Fusion

The Naish Glides provide great glide and speed, while remaining very easy to paddle. The Glide models bridge the gap between the Naish Maliko (race) and their entry level inflatable paddle boards. The long 14’0″ x 30″ wide Glide features an extra cargo area, so you can pack even more items for your longer touring trips. Hydroslick edges reduce wasted energy by creating a clean water release in the tail of the board. This maximizes paddling efficiency, so you move forward faster! Additional handles in the nose make getting in and out of the water on slippery banks faster and easier than ever. The double density deck pad provides a soft, comfortable surface to get on and off the board, while providing a secure grip while standing and riding.

Fusion Drop stitch

All high-end Naish boards are now built using the industry’s highest standard Fusion material. It is created by fusing a layer of solid polymer to the drop stitch material as it is being made. This allows for a stiffer, more durable material that saves about 2 kg per board while ensuring they are as rigid as possible.

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.

Double Density Deck Pad

The Naish inflatable SUP deck pads now feature two different textures, with different grooving, so you can instantly feel when you’re standing in the proper paddling area. The main pad is made from their soft, low-rash “crocodile skin”. The stance area is made with a higher grip diamond texture which is oriented to maximize grip along the length of the board and help transfer more of your paddling force into the board.

Hydroslick Edges

Strategically placed material along the tail of the board creates a clean water release, reducing the wasted energy resulting from surface tension created at the tail of the board. This makes the most of the energy you produce, moving you forward faster.

US Fin Box

The 2019 and 2020 inflatable Naish Glides are equipped with US fin boxes and come with a race fin, butterfly screw and Phillips head screw (for lower drag) to give you unlimited options to customize your fin design depending on conditions.

High Pressure Rated

The Naish boards are constructed in an all new manufacturing facility with superior glues, materials and quality control. This allows their boards to be inflated to a higher PSI (21), for unbelievable stiffness that performs more like a composite board. Adhering to the highest quality control standards in the industry, every single inflatable board is built to last.

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.

Stiffness rating: 5.8
