BOTE, a leader in standup paddle board innovations, announces the debut of the newest addition to their quiver, Traveller. A board that through DarkRoom™ research and development, was designed to be the go to board for the touring category...or what we will call the "traveling class”. The glide, stability, capacity and advanced dynamics are just a few highlights that make the 12’6” Traveller the board for every paddler.
BOTE Lead Designer, Corey Cooper shares his vision, “With Traveller, we are aiming to define a category in SUP. I have always felt that the touring, adventure, expedition board category has been tremendously ignored concerning design and development by the paddle board industry, including us. To me, it seemed to be a byproduct of bigger, heavier race boards or sleeker, longer recreational boards… and whatever didn’t fit into those categories, automatically became the ‘touring’ board.” Cooper adds, “Traveller is different in that everything about the board was designed from the ground up for traveling. From how it carries you and your gear all the way to how you carry it.”
The Traveller is one of the most progressive boards on the market, and will be the first board to feature the new patent pending TraveLink™ system, that will revolutionize the way you transport your board. The adjustable and padded TraveLink™ Carry sling clips into the Traveller, and out of your hands in a matter of seconds. This system was created so you could literally throw your board over your shoulder and go–your fingers will never go numb carrying a board again. Cooper explains, “We looked at how people transported their boards and designed a system to assist with carrying a board, while toting around all the other gear necessary for a day long paddling trip. Once you get to the water, you can remove the sling from the rails of the board and secure it to the deck and out of your way. It’s just another BOTE innovation that will change the way people paddle.”
