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 (32" only) cargo loops so you can enjoy strapping all your kit to the board ready for any adventure, whether it be paddling with your dog or child sat on the front, or a fully loaded board ready for an overnight adventure.

Gladiator Elite 12'6 x 30" Construction
Woven Dropstitch - The Absolute Ultimate In Lightweight Stiffness, For Real Performance
The Gladiator Elite Range are made with the new, world's most advanced woven dropstitch, offering a board that's 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 2021, 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. Minimum weight and a focus on detail gives those striving for perfection - 'SUP Perfection'.
The Gladiator Outline shape is 12'6 x 30" x 6'' with a narrower mid section & wider tail giving this board a great glide, The Gladiator is stable because of a wide tail and easy to turn. It's Easy to hold the paddle closer & vertical, which improves tracking and reduces the amount of times you have to switch the paddle from side to side when paddling.
The Gladiator Elite is manufactured using world leading 'woven' dropstitch, offering a board that's even stiffer with no compromise on durability. The weave has less give than the traditional knitted method, which gives the superior flex and rigidity.
