Titan 2 Pump
Helping us pump up boards since 2015, now in its newest, most advance form for 2021– Included with all of our SUP packages, Red’s newly refined industry-leading Titan II pump takes you from neatly-packed to fully-inflated in half the time, with half the effort.
You don’t want to lose your board in the surf or on a long paddle – you need a leash and that’s exactly what we’re giving you, for free. Attaches on the ankle or just below the knee.
Water-Resistant Phone Case
Included with every Red inflatable SUP is a free water-resistant phone case with every board so you can now never miss a moment without the fear of getting your phone wet. Supplied with a lanyard, your phone will comfortably hang around your neck, ready for action whatever the situation.
A small kit including PVC adhesive, patches and a valve tool comes with the package – however we’d be very surprised if you had to use any of it. The Red’s inflatable SUPs are just that good!
The rocker stiffening system (RSS) utilizes two external glass fiber struts, designed to give specialist boards up to 40% more stiffness.
MSL Fusion Technology – “Monocoque Structural Laminate”
This involves an industrial process that fuses the second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the drop-stitch core at raw material stage.
What does this mean for me as the customer?
MSL reduces hand glueing errors and the amount of glue that is used, which saves around 2kg in weight. It also delivers greater stiffness at lower pressures (it is recommended that you inflate your Red Paddle SUP to 18-22 PSI for ultimate performance.
By adding MSL to the existing Tech Air manufacturing process it makes all the boards stiffer, more durable and better performing.
The new process also means you will be able to roll the board up smaller and tighter, which makes fitting it into the bag easier.
