WEST WAREHAM, Massachusetts - BIC SUP introduced the CROSS Stand Up Paddleboard this season confident it would be well received, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Being recognized in Outside Magazine’s 2014 summer buyers guide as a “favorite” board is further evidence of the CROSS’s distinctive characteristics, performance and value. All BIC SUP boards undergo extensive testing and development with shaper Patrice Remoiville and the BIC SUP team. Fitness and Yoga experts Nikki Gregg, Julie Roach and Jodelle Fitzwater were heavily involved in development and testing of the CROSS. Their input helped create a board with a unique balance of family-friendly flatwater performance together with features optimized for yoga and fitness use. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what Outside Magazine had to say:
“BEST FOR: Fitness paddling or just tooling around.
THE TEST: We threw a forty-something beginner on the Cross SUP, and she was immediately stoked on how stable and easy it was to paddle. Not a huge surprise given that it’s a stout 33 inches wide and nearly five inches thick. The board, a design marriage of last year’s Gear of the Year – winning Bic Wing and a conventional surf-style SUP yields a surprising amount of glide for such a short, wide board. And the wall-to-wall deck pad is the most comfortable we’ve ever tried – soft and cushy, just like a yoga mat.
THE VERDICT: Have a vision of cruising with your dog or kid on the bow? This board’s for you bud. 10’, bicsup.com STABILITY: 4.5 / GLIDE 3.5” The CROSS is now available at BIC SUP retailers worldwide, featuring our legendary ACE-TEC construction which produces boards that are both durable AND light weight at a great price.
