Newly updated for 2017! A longer touring board providing the perfect balance between speed and stability! Now with Titan pump!

AirKayaks Special! Free Accent MAX Carbon Adjustable Breakdown Paddle ($199 value) with purchase, while supplies last. Automatically added at checkout.

The new Red Air Sport 12'6" RSS iSUP is perfectly positioned between the shorter Sport 11/Sport 11-3 and other 12'6" shapes - it's faster to paddle than the smaller boards, and more stable than the racing models. In conjunction with the revolutionary RSS Rocker Stiffening System, squared-off tail and a thicker 150mm material, the 12 foot 6-inch length with 30 inch beam provides great glide - perfect for touring.

The new Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) was designed to increase rigidity - it works by inserting stiffening strips (battens) along the rails of the board. This works against the downward force of the rider, producing a stiffer board. The battens are removable for easy board rolling, and can be stored in the carry bag. While some inflatable boards flex uncontrollably in the water, Red Air's 16-22 PSI super-stiff, double layer construction holds firm and allows you to travel with confidence.

The thicker 150mm material is more buoyant and 50% stiffer than a 100mm board at the same pressure, meaning a rider can obtain greater stiffness at lower pressure without affecting the ride and performance - or stiffer performance at higher pressure. And with the added RSS rocker stiffening system, the Sport 12'6" becomes one of the stiffest boards of this size ever produced.

The Sport Twelve Six utilizes a low-profile, US box fin system supplied with a fin designed for straight-line control - just the right amount of grip without adding drag. For 2017, the fin box has been improved and now fits 90% of US fins. Also new is the FCS Connect Tool-less System for fast setup and removal with no tools or bolt necessary. The new fins have a specially-designed, wear-resistant barrel with a corrosion-resistant titanium pin mechanism incorporated into the base.

All Red Paddle Co models are now constructed using Monocoque Structural Laminate (MSL) fusion technology. This innovative new process involves fusing a second layer of polymer to the drop-stitch material in the raw material stage. The end result is a higher-quality, high-pressure material utilizing less glue; this reduces the weight of each board up to 20% while increasing the tension and making the boards slightly more rigid. For 2017, the material has again been improved, making the injected, reinforced second layer thicker with increased bond strength.

New integrated threads on the nose allow the attachment of optional RAM mounts, allowing the paddler to add numerous accessories such as camera attachments, GPS, phone and fishing rod holders.

Precise fin placement and rocker lines also turn Red Paddle Co. boards from being ordinary into something that you want to ride again and again.

The Red Paddle Co experience is not just the board! New for 2017, both Titan pump and roller backpack have been upgraded. The new Titan pump has been redesigned internally to improve pump performance and efficiency, while the front-loading, wheeled carrybag/backpack now sports a new foil liner to protect the board against extreme heat.

The Red Air Sport 12'6" is great for gliding across bays, lakes and up rivers. It's the perfect cruiser, ideal for longer touring trips!
