BIC Sport is excited to announce and honored to receive the 2014 Men’s Journal GEAR OF THE YEAR award for the 12’6 SUP AIR inflatable paddleboard. The board was tested by Men’s Journal gear test team and chosen as one of the “best tools, toys and tech” for 2014 for its innovative features and performance.

Shaper Patrice Remoiville, working closely with the BIC SUP team in Europe and North America, designed the 12’6 SUP AIR (together with the rest of the SUP AIR range) to perform more like traditional rigid boards than typical inflatables.

Dubbed by Men’s Journal as the “Go anywhere SUP”, the 12’6 was lauded for its exceptional rigidity and a “smooth, stable and relatively fast ride”. They also noted the innovative use of a “high-performance removable fin like the one found on regular SUPs” which is universally compatible with other fins for easy replacement or customization.

The 12’6 SUP AIR is featured and available for purchase in the Men’s Journal “Gear Lab Pop-Up Store” online and at the MLB FAN CAVE storefront from December 4-17th in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City (4th Street & Broadway). The store is open from 10am-7pm each day.
