RED PADDLE CO 9’6″ COMPACT INFLATABLE SUP
9’6″ COMPACT INFLATABLE SUP
HALF THE SIZE DOUBLE THE ADVENTURE
Introducing the revolutionary 9’6” Compact, a full sized SUP that folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board.
Get ready for a SUP revolution both on and off the water!
Our aim was to produce the most transportable board on the planet, without compromising on performance – and the result is the 9’6” Compact.
Ten years in the making, this game-changing new board with international patent pending technology, folds down the middle and packs super-small.
This innovative new board offers unprecedented convenience, so you can easily take it around town, hop on and off the train or even on your bike. Plus, it has never been easier to store your SUP!
Most importantly, there’s no compromise on performance – the 9’6” Compact is as stiff and durable as all Red Paddle Co boards.
The 9’6” Compact is a full-sized SUP that packs down to half the size of a conventional inflatable board. How is that possible, you ask? It’s all thanks to PACT™ technology.
Following Red Paddle Co’s ongoing commitment to innovation, a new weaving process creates an extra-high-tensile thread matrix at the core of the board that combines with a super-strong but malleable outer layer and a tensile quad stringer-system.
The result is a board that always keeps its shape when inflated, but packs down to an ultra-small size once you’ve let out the air.
Who’s it for? An all-round SUP for riders who want the ultimate in convenience and storage without compromising on performance.
Volume 222 litres
Rider Weight up to 95kgs
Half the Size, Double the Adventure.
Ten years in the making, our mission to make paddle boarding even more accessible has been realised. Our revolutionary 9’6” Compact (patent-pending) is a step forward in what an inflatable board can be… a full-sized SUP which folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board.
Based on our award-winning, all-round Ride 10’6″ MSL, the 9’6” Compact is 32”/813mm wide and 4.7”/120mm thick and provides the perfect blend of stability and manoeuvrability allowing you to make the most of any location and any conditions! Weighing in at just 8kg (board-only) and supporting riders up to 95kg/209lbs, it has never been easier to fold, roll and go on your next SUP adventure.
READ THE FULL STORY OF WHY WE CREATED THE 9’6 COMPACT …
To achieve this completely new compact board we developed state-of-the-art trademarked technology, exclusive to the 9’6″ Compact. At the core of the board is a unique weaving process that creates an extra-high-resolution thread matrix. When combined with a super-strong but malleable outer layer and advanced quad stringer system -he result is a super-stiff board that rolls up to an ultra-small pack size.
THE 9’6” COMPACT PACKAGE INCLUDES THE BOARD, BACKPACK, FIVE-PIECE PADDLE, TITAN PUMP AND LEASH.
(Packed weight is approximately 12.7kg)
BAG IT UP
A Bag, but not as you know it…The highly engineered Compact backpack has been specifically designed with an ergonomic, user centred focus. Measuring just 560mm in height, the bag offers unique levels of adjustability and comfort. Concentrated shoulder padding and adjustable lower back lumbar support delivers approximately 53% less downforce in comparison to conventional SUP backpacks and makes it suitable for almost any height of paddler.
A smart performance paddle… Creating a paddle that was light, strong and incredibly compact took years of research and development. As the first of its kind, our fully adjustable 5-piece paddle uses high-modulus carbon for extra rigidity to deliver a responsive feel, whilst the highly durable, laser etched Nylon blade removes the need for inks and printing to deliver a design that does away with aesthetic implications forever.
The new anti-twist push-pin technology allows the paddle to pack away perfectly into the bag, plus individual sections can be removed creating a paddle that’s suitable for all the family!
Click and go… Our all new twin Click Fin system is only available with the new 9’6” Compact. They attach in record quick time with a simple click whilst a secondary screw can be used for additional security and longer outings. The fin boxes themselves are also compatible with standard FCS fins, so you can customise the feel of your board in the water and tune it to the conditions.
TITAN – THE KING OF PUMPS
When you unpack your Compact 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.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
At Red Paddle Co we offer more than just an authentic paddleboard experience, with the 9’6″ Compact you get:
THE COMPACT backpack is highly engineered to offer unique levels of adjustability and comfort, plus incredible shoulder and back support.
We think it’s the most highly engineered SUP bag on the planet, and as it applies approximately 53% less downforce on the carrier’s lower back, you can travel for longer in comfort. With customisable lumbar support and adjustable height features, it’s suitable for almost any size of paddler. And it doesn’t stop there:
Tubular closed cell padding on the handles
Concentrated shoulder padding
Brushed cotton shoulder and back cushioning
Adjustable shoulder straps
All these combine to make it a pleasure to carry, whether you’re on a short walk to the water or off on an epic adventure.
Dimensions: Height: 560mm | Width: 420mm | Depth: 280mm
PACT™ technology features a completely new durable material with a high resolution thread matrix but is malleable to ensure easy packing.
The board wraps around itself and the Titan pump.
The split deckpad and offset valve creates a ‘living hinge’, allowing the board to fold easily down the middle.
Creating a compact paddle was not an easy task, but we have found the perfect solution: a five piece paddle.
As a result, it packs away perfectly, but it is still adjustable with no compromise on the water.
Made of high-modulus carbon for extra rigidity, with a durable pure nylon blade.
The Nylon blade of the paddle is laser etched, with no printing, chemicals or transfers and produced with a single pure material. Meaning the design will stay on forever, resulting in no aesthetic implications.
Our new anti-twist adjustment system with 45 degree cut push-pin technology has resulted in our most compact paddle yet.
Even the fins have been redesigned and are only available with the new 9’6”Compact.
They use a simple click fin system with a secondary screw for added security. The two off set fin boxes themselves are also compatible with standard FCS fins, so you can customise the feel of your board on the water.
THE TITAN PUMP
Still the best pump on the market? Of course it is.
That’s why we had to make room for it in the new compact bag, It completes the package perfectly. The Titan Pump is so efficient and well designed that you will be on the water in no time.
There are currently a limited number of Compact boards available to pre-order, dispatched from the beginning of November. The Compact will be on general release from December.
