Free Red Titan Dual Pump – Pumps twice as fast, with minimum effort | The best SUP pump on the market.
Red Paddle Co. new revolutionary SUP pump, which pumps your inflatable much faster, and with less effort than any other hand pump in the market. This pump features two chambers: large volume – low pressure, and a low volume – high pressure. This is like having the combination of the Ezee pump and the HP (high pressure) Pump in one.
When you start pumping, you are using both cylinders to pump huge amounts of air into the board. Once you reach 10-15 PSI, take out the chamber plug which will engage the high pressure pump (similar to the HP Pump), to maximise the air pressure inside you SUP.
See the video, where the research team at Red Paddle Co demonstrate the effectiveness of the TITAN Pump against the other other pumps they have brought to market.

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.
The high-pressure laminated, heat-pressed seam created an airtight, waterproof seal that can withstand anything you can throw at it.
Being high pressure laminated by a machine and heat-pressed on to the board, this removes all possibilities of human error leading to edges of the material becoming unstuck from the board and further adds to the uncompromisable strength and durability Red Paddle Co boards are renowned for.
Reinforced stainless steel attachment points
Attaching your kit to the front of your board has never been easier – the bungee system means your gear will stay in position and the stainless steel attachment points ensure peace of mind as they won’t break or rust!
One-piece deck pad
Being one-piece and machine-pressed at 170PSI on to the board, you can be sure that the pad will not come unstuck in any area of the board.
Not wanting the handle to cause any pain or rubbing on your hands, the nice folks at Red Paddle Co have designed a soft, comfortable carry handle for the board, ensuring you have an effortless time carrying the board down to the water’s edge.
