THE VERDICT

Siren Ray PFT 12 6 2018

Inflatable Paddle Board Review

Siren are a German SUP company specialising in "high-end iSUPs at a fair price".

 

The narrowest board we tested, the Siren Ray is probably also the fastest. The shaping is very similar to traditional race boards. Stability and manoeuvrability do suffer and it is more suited to more experienced paddlers.

 

A sleek and sporty board which would suit more experienced paddle boarders looking to exploit the boards undoubted speed.

 

Little to choose between the top boards in this category. 4 boards scored 4.6 out of 5.

The Siren Ray 12 6 is the one of the fastest iSUPs we looked at in the Touring category. Stability does suffer, especially against the wider touring boards,  Experienced paddler will certainly enjoy the experience which is the closest to a traditional hard board race board we have tested in 2017.

Expect to pay £970 (without a paddle).

PERFORMANCE

As with all the boards reviewed in 2018, the Siren Ray PFT is manufactured at one of the World's top iSUP factories. We can therefore guarantee the materials, accessories and manufacturing processes are of the highest quality.

 

The board has a double layer polymer fusion construction with double layered rails. This results in a light weight (11kg) yet stiff and fast board.

MANUFACTURE

The Ray 12 6 comes with a single fin set-up.

 

The centre fin is a 9" screw plate fin which fits a standard US Fin Box.

FIN SET-UP

The Siren Ray PFT 12 6 comes with the Bravo SUP3 pump which inflated the board easily enough. The Bravo SUP4 would be an improvement.

 

The bag is a hardwearing wheeled back pack. Suitable for travel and general storage. Little to differentiate from most similar wheeled iSUP bags.

 

It doesn't come with a paddle but an aluminium 3 pcs paddle can be bought separately for approx. £50.
