The 12’6 x 29″ x 4.7″ Elite is a touring board designed for the lighter, shorter paddler. This design technology is at the forefront in innovation with Gladiator paddleboards proudly being one of the few brands paving the way for all riders, including the shorter lighter, to have a touring board that is the perfect volume in choppy water and windy days as well as all other riding conditions. The high-density material and glueing technology allows Gladiator to offer a 4.7″ dropstitch in the longer touring board shapes, which allow the lighter, shorter rider to have a stiff board but at this new lower volume, this means the lighter, shorter rider will never have to suffer again with over volume that is created by a 6″ thick touring board, Gladiator has yet again challenged technology as well as budget and have brought this technology in at an affordable price so EVERY rider can afford the best.
The Absolute Ultimate In Lightweight Stiffness
Made from market leading machine weave 26psi high density double laminated dropstitch, the Elite is top of its class: 20% lighter and stiffer than fusion layer boards. The weave has less give than the traditional knitted method, which gives superior flex and rigidity, with no compromise on durability. The Gladiator Elite is reinforced with a Xstrong triple rail edge which adds to the ‘solid’ board feel. Thanks to its design and manufacturing method the narrow super-strong edge becomes an integral part of the SUP board, as a result, the board offers even more rigidity, glide and performance. Features include front, rear and centre carrying handles for easy transportation and bungee tie-downs for carrying kit. The Elite has everything and more. Minimum weight and a focus on detail for those who desire the best.
