Gladiator Elite 12'6 x 32" Construction
Woven Dropstitch - The Absolute Ultimate In Lightweight Stiffness, For Real Performance
The Gladiator Elite Range are made with the new, worlds most advanced woven dropstitch, offering a board thats even stiffer with no compromise on durability. The weave has less give than the traditional knitted method, which gives the superior flex and rigidity. The 2 layer sandwich of 1000 den substrate adds to the stiffness, whilst keeping the board incredibly lightweight. For 2020, we have reinforced the models with Xstrong edge innovative technology. The new technology allows us to add to the ‘solid’ board effect. 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 with the added bonus that the thinner edge looks stunning.. The Elite has everything and more. A minimum weight and a focus on detail gives those striving for perfection - 'SUP Perfection'.
