Who’s it for?
An all-round SUP for riders who want the ultimate in convenience and storage without compromising on performance.
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.
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.
