The 2017 Red Paddle Co 13’2” Explorer+ is the ultimate board for exploration, loaded with features and conceptualised with epic adventures in mind. With its high sides, large volume and narrower width, it’s a high-speed cruiser, designed for competent paddlers. It’s got cargo tie-downs front and back for all your gear, and under those are extra-grippy deck sections that help keep your cargo in place. Read our review and see a video review of the 2016 version.

Like the 12’6” Explorer, the 13’2″ Explorer+ has a removable FCS Connect tool-less fin, a nose runner fin to aid tracking in side winds, and two rear runner fins to cancel out ‘tail drift’ when the board is loaded with gear. And of course, it all comes in our easily transportable backpack. Go explore!

Who’s it for? Life’s adventurers – and take all your kit with you.

Description

What’s new for 2017?

  • As with all 2017 Red Paddle Co inflatable paddle boards, the 13’2″ Explorer+ features the improved MSL fusion composite and airtight coating construction process for a lighter and stiffer board.
  • Integrated nose handle, d-ring and Ram Mount for cameras and accessories
  • Forward and rear cargo areas now include Ram Mounts
  • FCS Connect tool-less 9″ SUP fin
  • Updated 8″ US fin box for easy roll up
  • RSS Battens now feature special cord and velcro tab to hold them in place
  • More streamlined nose runner fin
  • Foil lined bag to protect board from extreme temperatures

What is MSL? Monocoque Structural Laminate (MSL) fusion composite and airtight coating is a new construction process introduced in 2016. MSL involves fusing the 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 up to 5 lbs of weight per board and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.

The Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) system works to give unrivalled stiffness. The RSS is designed to increase rigidity by 30-50%. It works by inserting battens along the rails of the board. While some inflatable boards flex in the water, Red Paddle Co’s 15-25 PSI super-stiff, double layer construction holds firm and allows you to paddle with confidence.

The new FCS Connect SUP fin simply slots in by hand, taking mere seconds to fit. They have a specially designed water-resistant barrels and corrosion-resistant titanium pin mechanism incorporated into their base. The rest of the fin is also extremely durable and resistant.

Other features:

  • The Titan Pump – a revolutionary dual chamber inflatable paddle board pump that will inflate your board in half the time with half the effort, and still pump to 25PSI easily.
  • MSL fusion composite and airtight coating
  • High-grade, double-thread internal high density drop stitching which can handle up to 25PSI
  • Double layer fusion construction featuring a “board within a board”. This adds “bomb-proof-ness,” massive strength, stiffness, consistent shape and mega durability
  • Side rails with four layers of taping – maintains the boards shape, stiffness and air tight qualities. Four times thicker than many inflatable paddle boards
  • Features the RSS System
  • Special “air block” membrane eliminates air leakage
  • FCS Connect tool-less 9″ SUP fin
  • Integrated tail handle and rear d-ring for leash
  • Integrated nose handle, d-ring and Ram Mount for camera and accessories
  • Double tail runner fins for straighter paddling
  • Nose fin runner for straighter paddling
  • Super traction, non-slip diamond cut EVA deck pad
  • Extra large front cargo net for carrying gear with stainless d-rings and Ram Mount
  • Rear tie down stainless d-rings for carrying extra loads, and Ram Mount
  • Low profile handle so no risk of injury
  • Central carry handle, more comfortable than before
  • Handles on each rail and a nose for every possible carrying method
  • Built using Tec Air specification, with new valves, improved seals, cap and stronger threads
