Tried, tested & loved

How can Gladiator produce premium boards at an affordable price? Simple. They manufacture the boards in their own factory.

Gladiator build inflatable paddleboards that use top quality materials and construction techniques, the same methods used by the biggest and most-established of paddleboard brands. So the boards truly compete with the best on the market, but something is very different… The price. Gladiator own their own factory (the only brand other than Red Paddle Co to do this), meaning prices aren't doubled before they reach the seller. With an efficient supply chain and targeting the price-conscious European market, Gladiator paddleboards are far lower in price than all of their like-for-like competitors.
