SAFE X Drive 8'6 SUP 2019
X-DRIVE 8'6'' is the sup inflatable board ideal for for waves, excursions, travels and free time. It is the perfect mix between fun and sport. This sup board was designed in cooperation with Alessandro Onofri, a many times Italian SUP champion – this means that X-DRIVE 8'6'' is the best sup inflatable board if you want to ride waves! The “truster” system on the fins (a big, resistant and movable central fin and two small fixed side fins) and its 265 cm length make this sup board excellent not only to ride waves – moreover, its important width provides the sup board with great stability, ideal to surf or paddle on flat waters. Another characteristic of this sup board is represented by its remarkable rigidity, which makes it perfect for different occasions, ideal when you are travelling.

TECHNOLOGY X PRO SYSTEM:
Each and every SAFE inflatable SUP board is designed and tested in order to combine maximum safety and excellent performances.
X PRO SYSTEM: THE TECHNOLOGY OF INFLATABLE SAFE SUP
SAFE sup's particularity is their construction: all our sup board are made following the X PRO SYSTEM process. This new system has allowed us to reach a product with a high load capacity, an exceptional resistance to shocks and reducing the board's weight fo 10% compared to the previous versions.
X PRO SYSTEM specifications:
- two layer construction giving resistance, strength and a precise shape
- internal welded stitching keeps the shape of the sup board intact, without risking any warps
- the special “Air Block” layer eliminates pressure drops
- double layer of pvc in the rails
- deck EVA anti-abrasion and effective grip
DROP STITCH: THE INTERNAL MATERIAL OF THE SAFE INFLATABLE SUPs
All inflatable SAFE SUPs are constructed and guaranteed by the DROP STITCH high density system. Thousands of stretched strings crossing the inside of the sup board giving it's shape while the internal air creates pressure and a extremely rigid sup board. We have chosen a high density material to develop a high quality sup board with a more solid and resistant structure increasing life longevity and shock resistance.
Double layers of material with special attention to the rails:
The SAFE inflatable SUPs are constructed assembling 2 layers of material. The sup board, constituted internally with thousands of strings, is coated with a first layer of melted PVC adhesive followed by a second layer creating a very solid external shell. Finally, the skid proof grip and the fins are added. During all this process, the rails are given maximun attention knowing it is the part of the sup board receiving the most pressure.
We have removed the coating of the thousands of internal string in favor of the PVC melted layer that has become an ultra performant hermetic seal and an adhesive layer. This new technic allowing us to have sup boards 10% lighter that the earliest versions.
THE SAFE INFLATABLE SUP FINS:
Our sup boards are delivered with a thruster set with fixed lateral short fins and a removable central fin with the Pin Lock or Fin Box system. PIN LOCK SYSTEM: this system consists in having fixed rigid fins and a removable central fin with Lock locking increasing the sup boards control and the capacity of gliding straight ahead. It also allows your fins not curve or fold when trasported in your bag as it often happens with fixed fins. FIN BOX SYSTEM: This system consists of having one rigid fin installed with a screw in the fin box system. This system allows to increase your maximun capacity to glide in straight ahead.
THE THICKNESS OF THE SAFE INFLATABLE SUPS:
The thickness of our sup boards corresponds to the exact proportion between shape and rigidity. Developing a thicker sup board means you will automatically bring more rigidity, but also influence its performance. For this reason we have developed the most rigid sup boards as possible without influencing the performance.
11/12 cm is the perfect thickness for a sup board targeting to be light and manoeuvrable. The rails become essential if you need to maneuver quickly.
15 cm is the perfect thickness for a sup board targeting to be stable and fast. The thickness will guarantee rigidity and stability, allowing to transport more weight and reduce its friction on the water in race conditions thanks to its buoyancy.
