14'0" x 27" Elite MSL Inflatable Paddle Board
Made for competitive types wanting to enter the 14'0" class
Expected delivery 1 - 2 weeks
Max Rider Weight
The 14'0" class is aimed at the slightly larger rider or those looking to compete over larger distances. The 14'0" Elite inflatable SUP's come in two sizes with the 27" being the slightly wider of the two. The wider tail section offers fantastic stability and more manoeuvrable, making it a great all round race board.
The 14'0" x 27" Elite benefits from all of the latest Red Paddle Co innovations such as our patented Rocker Stiffening System or RSS for short. This counters any flex through two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the side of the board; In addition to RSS, our patented Forward Flex Control System (FFC) then adds rigidity to the front of the board using a carbon compression rod to prevent flex that can be created in a race, channeling the energy towards the back of the board which increases overall board speed. RSS and FFC work together to create the stiffest, fastest inflatable SUP's.
The board is also packed full of other features: Double nose fins aid tracking and displacing water from the deck of the board; The glass fibre centre fin supplied as standard gives the right amount of grip without adding drag, whilst the angled design prevents any debris from getting stuck on the fin; Multiple carry handles are included to provide fast entry and exit of the water and have been designed not to get in the way during racing; The diamond cut, Red embossed deck pad provides ultimate grip in control in all stages of a race. When you have finished racing the board then rolls up and fits into our amazing back pack so can be transported anywhere in the world without the risk of damage.
Everything you need to get started
All Terrain Backpack
We bang on about this a bit, but there's no better way to explore your world than with an inflatable SUP and the beauty of being inflatable means you can carry it in one of our SUP bags to wherever you want to explore…More Information
Titan II SUP Pump
The Titan II Pump is the world's first purpose-built, double chamber SUP pump. It's designed to cut the amount of time and effort it takes to inflate your board by half. Constant innovation has led to us testing the absolute boundaries of inflation technology and as such, we're confident that there's nothing quite like the Titan II pump on the market.
The Dual Cylinder system, combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the energy used to inflate your board. It puts the volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure.
8ft Coiled SUP Leash
This has been designed for flat water paddlers and racers who want to make sure they are not getting any excess drag from their leash being in the water.
The leash features a interchangeable ankle or calf cuff with a quick release loop and integrated key pouch. It has a 7mm dual cord coiled leash which prevents the leash from dragging in the water plus dual pivot points to reduce twist. The leash is supplied with a length of rope so you can use with tradition leash points or can attach directly to our leash points which you can find at the back of any Red Paddle Co board.

Forward Flex Control (FFC)
The revolutionary Forward Flex Control (FFC) is a patented system designed to make Red Paddle Co’s 12’6 and 14’0 Elite the most rigid available ensuring the paddler a competitive edge.
Our Forward Flex Control or FFC for short, works by controlling flex from above the top forward section of the iSUP. The all-new FFC stiffens the front section of the paddleboard to remove flex created in sprinting phases of a race. The Forward Flex Control system consists of a two part carbon rod that is inserted before fully inflating the board completely by clipping it into the mounting base on the nose and locking it into the standing area EVA deck base with a lever that puts it under load. The rod then stabilises and therefore stiffens the forward section of the board and eliminates almost all the flex in the nose. When combined with the RSS battens as well as inflation of 20PSI, the result is seriously impressive.
The new FFC system is part of Red Paddle Co’s commitment to producing the fast inflatable paddleboards in the world. The Forward Flex Control system features on the Red Paddle Co 12’6 Elite and 14’0 Elite paddleboards.
MSL: The Difference Is In The Detail
Our exclusively-owned MSL Fusion technology provides unrivalled stiffness, weight-saving stability and a superb cosmetic finish. Together, with our patented RSS stiffening system, we make the most durable inflatable boards on the market.
MSL is recognised as the industry’s leading construction process and is exclusive to Red Paddle Co, here’s why…
A SUPERB COSMETIC FINISH – All Red Paddle Co boards have an industry-leading cosmetic finish. No wrinkles or blemishes. The boards look cleaner and smoother and even feel better to the touch.
WEIGHT-SAVING BUT STABLE – All Red Paddle Co boards are up to 2kgs lighter than our previous double layer construction. But very importantly they are not too light. If a board is ultra-light it is more affected by wind and current while on the water. MSL boards have a reassuring lightweight feel.
STIFF AT LOWER PRESSURES – Due to the Torsion Stiffness effect all Red Paddle Co boards are stiffer at lower pressures compared to other products on the market. We recommend a pressure of between 16-22psi. Less pumping and more paddling.
ENHANCED DURABILITY – The multiple-layer coating of Red Paddle Co boards is tough and durable. With our third generation of MSL material now in use, our boards are more durable than ever.
Tec Air: Pioneering Paddle Board Design
At Red Paddle Co, we sweat the small stuff. We’re dedicated to providing you with quality, and that’s why we’re the only inflatable SUP brand that makes boards in its own private facility. We use innovative materials and manufacturing techniques to produce superior-quality products you won’t find anywhere else.
Unlike other paddle board companies out there, we never compromise on quality and innovation. We’ve taken standard inflatable technology and redesigned almost every aspect of it to deliver a truly outstanding board.
Our products are of the highest quality, offering safety and durability that you simply won’t find elsewhere. Before any of our board designs go into production, we carry out extensive research and testing to make sure your board performs when you need it to most (we even ran over one of our boards with a tractor…it was fine.) It then takes us 72 hours to make each individual board – that’s ten times longer than the industry average. This whole process is know as Tec Air and is how we refine and develop our boards at every stage of production. By focussing in on the key areas of the production process we have been able to identify ways we can improve the end result. Whether it be detailing exactly where and how the layers are bonded or how the rocker curve is applied to the board, no area of the design process is ignored.
It’s worth knowing that the key areas of construction are inside the board, two while any two boards might look the same…they can be world’s apart in how they’re constructed. Our attention to detail on the inside ensures the best experience on the outside.
