What's New for 2020
iROCKER has made a number of improvements to the ALL-AROUND 11′ for 2020. One of our highest-rated all-around SUPs over the past few years, the ALL-AROUND 11′ has only gotten better for this season.
This year, the company has once again reworked the design with sporty, digitally-printed graphics and brand new colorways. iROCKER has also switched to a lighter weight construction to shed some unwanted pounds, included a number of new features, and dramatically upgraded the SUP accessory package.
2020 brings some major changes in the design department for the iconic ALL-AROUND 11′ Gone are the model's signature vintage racing stripe graphics – they've now been replaced by sporty new graphics for a more modern look. We think the new design looks killer and particularly like the way the underside and the rails turned out.
Another great thing about iROCKER's paddle boards is the fact that they offer so many different color variations. Unlike some SUP companies that only offer one or two color options, iROCKER has the widest range of colorways, giving paddlers plenty of eye-catching options to choose from.
This season, the ALL-AROUND 11′ will be available in six different colors:
- Seafoam Green
We were pleased with iROCKER's transition two seasons ago to their ultra-tough, quad-layer PVC construction, but there was a definite tradeoff in terms of added weight. This year, iROCKER has transitioned its regular lineup of inflatable SUPs over to a lighter weight triple-layer composite PVC build, resulting in weight savings of 20%.
Starting in 2020, all iROCKER boards will be made the same way that the company's premium BLACKFIN SUP line is constructed, providing the same level of durability and rigidity without the heft.
The new ALL-AROUND 11′ comes loaded with new features and is one of the most feature-rich SUPs in its category. This season, iROCKER added front and rear grab handles, front and rear child safety handles, four Action Mounts for securing accessories such as a GoPro camera, waterproof Bluetooth speaker, fishing rod holders, and more. There are also D-rings added to the top and bottom of the board's nose as well as a rear bungee cargo area for increased onboard storage capacity.
Better SUP Accessory Package
iROCKER also made some nice improvements to the ALL-AROUND 11's SUP accessory bundle. First of all, the paddle has been upgraded to a lightweight carbon fiber blend shaft and also added is a new lighter weight blade.
Another big accessory upgrade this season is the improved SUP backpack. iROCKER's new travel bag is color-coded to match the board and features multiple zippered pockets for better organization, an elastic bungee cargo net on the pack's front for securing a towel or jacket, side mesh storage pouches, and an optional wheeled bag tray that can turn the standard ALL-AROUND 11′ backpack into a wheeled roller bag. It also has a large zippered storage pocket built-in to the top of the bag that's designed to hold the company's brand new compact electric SUP pump.
In addition to these improved accessories, the board also ships with iROCKER's dual-chamber triple-action pump, color-coded coiled SUP leash, repair kit, user manual, and sticker pack.
Extended Warranty Now Available
Of course, the ALL-AROUND 11′ includes iROCKER's iron-clad 2-year warranty but this year the company is also offering an extended warranty option during the checkout process. The extended warranty provides coverage for a full 3 years from the date of purchase, covering you during that time in the event of a manufacturer defect.
