SipaBoards, the company behind the world’s first electric SUP, launched a new Kickstarter campaign to introduce SipaBoards AIR, the world’s first integrated self-inflating standup paddleboard. The brand new stand up paddleboard is the most easy-to-pump inflatable ever. The fully integrated pump ensures that the SUP is inflated to perfect pressure in less than five minutes, all at the touch of the magnetic switch.
The SipaBoards AIR electric compressor is run by a removable battery that will inflate the board three times with one charge. In words of its founder Sebastjan Sitar “this highly advanced SUP was designed to get paddle boarders on the water more quickly, more easily and more often.”
The new SipaBoards AIR product line comes in three board shapes, namely the All Rounder, a great board for the whole family, the Cruiser, ideal for longer paddle boarding trips, and the Balance (yoga) model, for tons of stability and serenity on the water. The sleek and smart design provides users with the absolute best paddling experience.
The design team led by Jaro Jelovac , who also works with ski manufacturers Elan and Fischer, has already picked up a prestigious Red Dot Award 2015 , taking the honors in the competition’s highest category the Best of the Best. This year, SipaBoards received honors by becoming ISPO Brand New Award finalist.
SipaBoards AIR is currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter for an early-bird price of $940 and a retail price of $1,390. The product is scheduled to ship in October 2016.
