The 2017 14' Race has become the 2018 Red Paddle Co 14' x 27″ Elite with Red Paddle Co's patented Forward Flex Control, a unique stiffening system. As the elite racing boards take another step ahead of the rest of the industry with new technology, we now get to enjoy the 14' x 27″ Elite as amateur racing becomes more popular, but still with Red's high tech features.

At 14’ long and just 27” wide, this board has been shaped to cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. It rides high at 5.90″ thick, reducing drag, while double nose runner fins keep the board tracking straight without creating drag, a combination that lies at the heart of what makes this board so fast and so easy to control in race conditions. Read our review of the 2017 Red Paddle Co 14' Race.

Who's it for? Competitive racers who want a fast 14’ inflatable race board.

Description

2018 Red Paddle Co 14′ x 27″ Elite

The patented RSS system stiffens the board so there’s no flex, and the board comes with a built-in US fin box system, allowing you to adjust your fin to suit your style. It’s also a great downwind board – it picks up swell and glides beautifully. All this in a board you can deflate, pack away and carry home in a backpack! See a video review here.

What’s new for 2018?

  • Forward Flex Control (FFC): Extra rigidity to triumph in extreme circumstances
  • Slightly wider than the 2017 14′ Race, now 1″ wider to 27″ wide
  • Updated board colors and graphics, deck pad colors and rail graphics
  • Ram Mount and Railblaza Mounting System for camera and accessories
  • Piece of mind: Register your new board with Red Paddle Co to get your warranty coverage extended to 24 months

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.

Forward Flex Control or FFC is a patented innovation by Red Paddle Co to give race boards even more rigidity to cope with the intense pressures of competition. It is made up of a stiffening rod that works in combination with the RSS to deliver a mode rigid ride. Before fully inflating the board and inserting the RSS Battens, you simply clip the rob to a mounting level near the top of the deck pad and put it under compression. See how Forward Flex Control works.

The board comes fitted with the patented RSS system, the rocker stiffening system which improves board stiffness and performance by up to 50%. The RSS system works by inserting battens along the rails of the board. This works against the downward force of the rider, resulting in a stiffer board. The battens are removable for easy board roll-up, and can be stored in the same carry bag. While some inflatable boards flex uncontrollably in the water, Red Paddle Co’s industry leading 25 PSI super-stiff, double layer construction holds firm and allows you to travel with SUPreme confidence.

It comes supplied with a fin designed for straight-line control which has the right amount of grip without adding drag. Double nose runner fins also provide enhanced tracking and shedding water on nose dives.

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
  • Forward Flex Control (FFC): Extra rigidity to triumph in extreme circumstances
  • Features the RSS System
  • Special “air block” membrane eliminates air leakage
  • Removable fin using US fin box. Comes with fibreglass Red Paddle Co race fin designed for straight tracking
