Who’s it for? An excellent touring board for the 90kg/200lb+ paddler
Extra stability and rigidity makes this board the ideal vessel for long-range outings. Increased thickness and capacity makes the Voyager 12’6″ super-stiff and stable, so it’s perfect for taller, larger paddlers and longer outings in a range of conditions. The durability of the boards offered by our MSL Fusion technology allows you to explore with confidence so any adventure is a possibility.
Extra length means it can easily handle a child on the front while you paddle, or if you’re going it alone, you can use the 6 point cargo tie-down system at the front and 4 point cargo tie down system at the back to take camping gear with you.
Multiple carry handles ensure that carrying around obstacles is a breeze, no matter how much gear you have on board. They now come with our Red Paddle Co logo embroidered onto the handle to be softer under foot and reduce the amount of plastics used in the manufacturing process.
RSS battens ensure the board remains stiff when loaded and slices through the water. Beneath is a removable fin from world leading surfboard fin creators FCS, They slot into the fin box easily by hand and are secured in place with a finger bolt. A nose runner fin has been added to aid tracking in side winds, whilst the two rear runner fins cancel out ‘tail drift’ when the board is loaded up.
The diamond cut deck pad has been finished with our Red logo embossed all over to provide additional grip whilst paddling and protect against wear and tear. The board is supplied with our Titan Pump which will get you up to pressure in half the time than other SUP pumps and once deflated the board fits nicely inside our All Terrain backpack to make accessing that next idyllic location hassle free.
HOW DOES RSS MAKE THINGS STIFFER
Our patented RSS, or Rocker Stiffening System, makes our boards up to 40 per cent stiffer by displacing the riders weight over a greater length of the board. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated on to the side of the board. The battens are attached to cords held down with velcro tabs, making them really easy to remove.
LIGHTWEIGHT BUT STRONG
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating, MSL involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process saves almost 2kg in weight whilst making the boards stiffer at lower pressures. With our third generation of MSL material now in use, our boards are more durable than ever, if you don’t believe us then check out this video of us driving a 22 tonne digger over it!
TITAN – THE KING OF PUMPS
When you unpack your Red Paddle Co board for the first time, inside you’ll find the lightweight Titan pump. It’s the world’s best SUP pump and was created by our expert engineers to make inflating your board a cinch. The secret is in the dual-chamber system and high-flow handle, which pumps air into your board at up to 60mph, ensuring it inflates to the recommended pressure level while using less of your energy.
