Gladiator Elite Series    

Advanced WOVEN DROPSTITCH

The Gladiator Elite 12'6 is for those who want to up their game from an all-round board. The 12'6 touring board provides extra glide and speed whilst still being easy to paddle. The 12'6 Elite comes in 2 widths, 30" wide for the more proficient paddler wanting even more speed and 32" wide for the paddler wanting a great leisure paddling experience with more stability but with a slightly slower glide.

These 2 boards come with front and back cargo loops so you can enjoy strapping all your kit to the board ready for any adventure, whether it be a paddling with your dog or child sat on the front, or a fully loaded board ready for an overnight adventure. The 12'6 also comes with a bendy touring fin ready for any low tide or rock eventuality.

The 11'6 x 34" Elite performance all-round is the big brother to the 10'8 all round and with this comes a super stable shape for riders over 100kg. This paddleboard has been engineered and designed to offer riders over 100kg a board that's not only super stable but a board that also has speed and glide, combining maneuverability and ease of paddling. This 11'6 performance all-round is a perfect board for sea, lake and river paddling.

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. Gladiator have been using the woven dropstitch for the last 3 years years.

For 2020, Gladiatore have reinforced the models with Xstrong edge innovative technology. The new technology allows them 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 excellent usability of the Gladiator Elite Range is complemented by a premium package of extras. Included in the package is a Full Carbon 3pc paddle, white US fin box and bendy fin, coiled leash, a Bravo SUPer Pump, and wheeled paddle board bag, all branded Gladiator.
A minimum weight, a focus on details, excellent handling properties, and the super-reliable base under your feet: the Gladiator Elite boards are an uncompromising solution for those who choose the best.

 

These boards are rated with an optimum operating pressure of 18 to 20 psi , however the maximum quoted pressure of 26 psi along with a 3 year warranty which shows the quality of construction.
