Air Glide SIC inflatables are in a notch above the rest. All our designs are derived from their composite counter-part. This means tested geometry and proven performance translated to inflatable DSC technology “Drop-Stitch Construction.” SIC’s selected the best inflatable factory in the world to build its collection. DSC makes these boards durable, functional, fast and maneuverable. The boards are six-inches in thickness and boast 20+ PSI, which provides maximum stiffness and minimal flex. This equals speed, maneuverability and the widest possible weight range for paddlers of all sizes. Aesthetically, they mirror the same stylish design language as their composite brethren and consistent with the high value appeal that is distinctively SIC. They come complete with transport bag, high volume pump, three piece adjustable paddle and low drag removable fin system.
