The Technology explained

Thorough engineering and years of development lead to new approaches of watersports technologies:

High-pressure chambers with various tube circumferences define the accurate shape of the board.

A special, patent-pending arrangement of pipes and clusters serve as stringers throughout the entire board.

This worldwide unique technology provides more stiffness and more performance on the water than any other inflatable, while maintaining a small packing size.

Slice Comparison Dropstitch versus ClustAir

ClustAir versus Dropstitch

Due to this new and patented approach the ClustAir technology has several advantages in comparison to a Dropstitch inflatable:

  1. Design of a real board shape with sharp rails, a precise tail/ nose and a defined rocker line is possible.
  2. The multiple chamber system provides ultra stiffness.
  3. The result is a high-performance board.
  4. Due to it’s smart design and top quality our BELUGA performs like a hardboard.
  5. Our boards inflate very fast, they do not need much pressure to work excellently.
  6. The ClustAir technology serves for low weight and small packing size.
Step up

Your first time on a TRIPSTIX board can be challenging in terms of balance, if you have had only experience on Dropstitch inflatables so far. Do not let this irritate you! You will only need a little bit of practice to get used to the new feeling. The difference is due to our performance-oriented design, which results in less volume and more fun on the water in no time!

Precisely, this challenge can serve as an incentive for you to strive for the next SUP skill level! Improve your skillset to learn maneuvers like pivot and step back turns, which then again are much easier to achieve with our performance-oriented boards than with Dropstitch inflatables.
