BOTE’s New Rider Series Redefines the Hybrid SUP Experience

BOTE (, the longstanding leader of innovation in the paddle board, kayak, and water lifestyle space, today rolls out its new Rider Series, inflatable platforms that redefine the hybrid SUP experience, enabling anyone to stand-up paddle or sit down kayak depending on preference.

A collection of three versatile hybrid platforms – FlowRider Aero, EasyRider Aero and LowRider Aero – the new BOTE Rider Series is tailored to offer the ultimate in flexibility and performance. The Rider Series is perfect for solo explorations or tandem journeys, adapting to the day’s preferences and water’s call.

The Rider Series boards come with an easily attachable and removable inflatable Aero seat and four-piece hybrid paddle, offering smooth and efficient shift between standup paddle and kayak configurations. The boards are crafted with BOTE’s AeroULTRA construction, a military-grade PVC skin that’s extremely durable yet lighter in weight for transport, storage and carry. AeroULTRA uses the latest in composite drop-stitch construction, allowing BOTE to achieve incredible rigidity with the Rider Series, creating a hard, stable platform on the water.

“The introduction of the new Rider Series is really exciting and demonstrates what we’re all about at BOTE: getting people stoked about the water, regardless of experience, and providing easy flexibility and performance,” said Skye Bailey, Director of Marketing, BOTE. “The FlowRider, EasyRider and LowRider are all super versatile and fun platforms that were born from our decades of design experience and crafted to meet the needs of our customers.”

The new Rider Series ties back to the success of BOTE’s inflatable kayaks, paddle boards, and accessories – including the LONO Aero, Rackham Aero, Breeze Aero and others. It was working with these boards, paddling, and connecting with customers which gave the brand’s product design team inspiration to first introduce the hybrid sit / stand functionality.
