CruiserSUP® V-Max Race/Touring Inflatable w/Wheeled Back Pack


Our Best Selling Race/Touring board!

The lightest Inflatable SUP we offer at 23.5 pounds! With Wheeled Back Pack, Pump, Center Fin, Premium Deck Pad, Deck Bungees & 1 Year Warranty

With excellent tracking and amazing stability the Cruiser SUP V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" is the fastest inflatable board we offer. Cruiser SUP Research and Development has perfected the design to offer an inflatable 12`6" board that is ideal for touring, racing, fitness and anything in between

The V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" is a staff favorite at Paddleboard Direct. Based on the wildly popular non-inflatable V-Max 12'6", the V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" offers performance, but also portability. Ideal for riders up to 230lbs, the V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" tracks like it is on rails, and our staff has yet to determine if there is any upper end to its speed. 

The V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" is built from the highest quality PVC Drop Stitch materials, and extra stiffness is added through a deck stringer. The V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" comes with fin, pump, Premium deck pad, and 3 Piece Adjustable Alloy Paddle.

Ideal for riders looking for the performance of a touring board, without the hassles of transport of a non-inflatable.

Board Construction

Dura-Air Technology

V-Drop Stitch Material
Construction Image

The Dura-Air construction features V-Drop Stitch Material, which is a durable PVC. On the inside, thousands of nylon threads connect the deck with the bottom of the board to keep it in a functional and performing shape. Utilizing the best drop-stitch material available on the market, this newly developed technology provides a perfect ratio of durability, weight and price.

Built using specially produced, high density drop stitch that makes for a stronger and stiffer core. Take a look on the outside of a Cruiser SUP Dura-Air board and you will see thousands of dimples spread from nose to tail and rail to rail. Each dimple represents an internal thread. We do not use Linear drop stitch which is a mass produced, cheap material that cannot hold high pressure. Linear boards can be identified by the straight lines of dimples on the board.

All our boards are made with the latest PVC Drop stitch fabrics. The fabric filaments between the two PVC layers surfaces are assembled to the PVC itself, by new Cruiser SUP Dura-Air Technology. Offering the best bond between the fabric filaments and the PVC surface layers; this secures a high stress durability over a long time frame. These special new Cruiser SUP Dura-Air fabrics are the only fabrics that have been tested to be able to withstand up to 43 psi inflation pressure and can be normally used with an average of 15 to 20 psi inflating pressure. Higher pressure means stiffer boards, that can hold their original shape at all times, thus preventing shape deformation, and thereby delivering better performance in all conditions.

In addition to these special drop stitch fabrics, the boards are heat laminated with an extra Heavy Duty full layer PVC woven marine grade fabric on the deck and bottom, so that the Dura-AIr boards are both strong and durable, prevent the shape "twisting" and maintain the rocker line, as originally designed.
