The 2019 Starboard Inflatable 12’6″ Touring Zen Lite is a budget conscious version of the acclaimed Starboard Touring boards which have cruised lakes, rivers, bays and oceans all around the world for the past few years. We have seen them on podiums at many local races. A highly efficient shape for cruising and exploring with good glide to cover distance for riders up to 240 lbs.

Updated on the 2019 12’6″ x 30″ Touring boards, is the outline shape; with a narrower mid section and wider tail. This makes for even faster glide, even more stability and more manoeuvrability. It is also easier to hold the paddle closer and more vertical, which improves tracking and reduces the amount of times you have to switch the paddle from side to side when paddling.

Featuring Starboard’s new for 2019, Welded Seam Technology, the 12’6″ Touring Zen Lite is the ideal board who want performance and quality on a budget.

Includes FREE lightweight Starboard leash, and 2 YEAR warranty.

Description

2019 Starboard 12’6″ x 30″ Touring Zen Lite

Starboard injected 25 years of board building innovation into their 2019 inflatable board program. Their main focus was to build their boards stiffer, lighter, more stable, safer and way more durable. One feature, one of many unique to Starboard, is their Welding Technology.

Welding Technology: Heated and bonded for life. Glue is never forever. Mechanical bond = Strength and Durability. Starboard’s new welding technique turns two into one – using heat to bond two separate pieces of PVC into a single solid unit. Heat-welded PVC creates a mechanical bond that’s stronger, lasts longer – and is better for the environment.

Since the beginning inflatable boards have been glued together at the seam, so the boards only last as long as the glue. Over the last few years Starboard have worked with welding machine manufacturers to develop better machinery for seam welding. Then they helped train their selected OEM assembler to utilize this unique technology in Starboard’s exclusive production lines, resulting in a long lasting mechanical bond.


What’s new for 2019?

  • The Zen Lite construction style is new for 2019
  • Welding Technology. Mechanical bond = strength and durability
  • Narrower width is faster to paddle and easier to track in a straight line. The new parallel outline recovers stability lost from the standing area and delivers a more balanced glide.
  • Wider tail outline makes it much easier to turn

Zen Lite, Starboard’s leanest, lightest and most budget oriented technology

Stripped down to the core essentials. Built with single layer knitted drop stitch, double rail band and heat welded rails. The new tool-less fin system is quick and easy to set up.

Clean Technology: The lamination process uses minimal glue and solvent and packing of the board is free of plastic.

Faster board inflation, with less effort: The benchmark V8 flow valve gets you to 15–18 PSI faster and with less effort.

The innovative Rail Edge helps the water release off the board’s tail for optimal glide and speed. The Rail Edge is still easily folded and rolled when deflating.

The exclusive and innovative lightweight Starboard SUP leash will be your best paddling partner in flat water and touring conditions. Soft cushioning means it will compress and flatten when stood on. Compact in design and at only 70g, it is strong, comfortable and effortless to wear. The leash cuff is made from Yulex, a natural rubber with 80% less carbon footprint than normal neoprene. Leash is NOT suited to waves or white water.

Features:

  • Welding Technology. Mechanical bond = strength and durability
  • 6″ (150mm) dropstitch for a good balance between volume and stiffness
  • US Box tool less center fin
  • Recycled 2mm crocodile skin EVA deck pads all the way to the tail of the board
  • Center carry handle
  • Integrated tow ring in the valve area and bottom of the nose
