Based on the popular Red Paddle Co Sport 11'0" and 9'6" Compact, Red Paddle's new 12'0" Compact packs down to nearly half the size of a conventional Red board without sacrificing performance, rigidity or durability.
The 12'0" Compact inflatable paddle board is constructed from a newly-developed core material, featuring a high-resolution thread matrix called PACT technology. Ten years in the making, PACT technology is a new weaving process which creates a high-tensile thread matrix at the core of the board, with a super-strong, malleable outer layer. A unique "quad stringer" system is placed on the top and underside, making it stiff without the bulk.
A drawn-out nose reduces drag and increases speed, while the increased length provides greater paddling efficiency.
The deck pad is "split" with the handle, inflation valve and leash d-ring placed off-center, creating a "living hinge" which allows one to easily fold the board in half, and roll up into a "compact package."
The removable Red Click Fin System features fully recyclable fins and fin box with a "pin" security system ensuring that the fins are not lost. The fin box is compatible with most FCS fins.
The Compact BackPack touts a smaller footprint, about 1/2 as compared to the current roller backpack of 38" x 14" x 12". The entire bag was redesigned to enhance comfort. New features include lumbar support which can be customized by adjusting the height, a cushioned, adjustable waist belt and adjustable backpack straps with concentrated shoulder padding. Each of these allow one to personally optimize the backpack for a more ergonomic fit.
The interior features a fin pocket, water bottle pocket and paddle storage straps. Weight reduction is saved via the smaller size, and removal of the wheels. All this makes a backpack that features 53% less downward force applied on the lower back.
Included in the 12'0" Compact Sport Package is an innovative 5-piece, breakdown paddle, with a shaft constructed from a rigid, high-modulus carbon and a nylon blade. The paddle weighs 1.8 lbs and can be adjusted from 70.8 in to 82.7 in (180-210cm) with a longest shaft length of roughly 17 to 20 inches. Individual sections can be removed to create a paddle suitable for smaller riders (53 in to 65 in/135cm to 165 cm)) - great for families.
Last but not least, the 12'0" Compact comes with the remarkable Titan pump - which lets you pump up the board to high pressures in no time - and the popular Red Paddle coiled leash.
New for 2022, the Red Paddle board has an updated colorway across the Compact Range, new Paddle Design, split EVA deckpad which makes folding easier than ever, the new Adjustable Flat Bungee System, updated integrated valve design and updated click fins.
Each of these components works together to create a board that is as rigid, high-performing and durable as the standard Red boards, yet easily folds and rolls up to half the size.
The 12'0" Compact Sport Package is designed for riders up to 265 lbs, who want the convenience of a packable system that doesn't sacrifice performance. The 12'0" Compact is also a great choice for families, easily packed in a car or RV, light enough for most members to carry, and a carbon paddle that can be adjusted for most sizes.
The Red Paddle Co 12'0" Compact is a good for all-round, flat water recreational use.
