Gladiator SUPs mid price point iSUP range. Perfect for a paddler wanting to paddle more.
In this video Reuben gives you an overview of the Pro range from Gladiator SUP.
The Pro range has 10 boards including 3 all-round sizes (10’4/10’6/10’8). But the majority of boards in the range are longer touring shapes (11’2 to 12’6) ideal for those paddlers wanting to paddle a bit further or faster. As with all the Gladiator iSUPs they’re available in a range of board thicknesses (4.7” and 5.9”) to best suit all weights of paddlers.
Approx £100 more than the Origin range, the triple reinforced rail makes them more hardwearing and gives them more of a refined nose shape, increasing performance.
A great value mid price point iSUP package including a carbon/nylon 3 piece paddle, wheeled backpack, quality pump and leash.
To find out which Gladiator SUP range and board might best suit you, also check out the Origin and Elite range overview videos, as well as the other specialist wind, whitewater, fishing and multi person SUPs on the Gladiator SUP website.

At the time these Gladiator range overview videos were filmed (several months ago), SUPboarder was informed Gladiator was a Latvian registered company and at that point the team didn’t look any further into it. More recently, following the start of the conflicts in Ukraine, and online discussions following the videos becoming live, SUPboarder has done further research to understand the background and ownership of the brand.
Our research shows that Gladiator is a Latvian registered company, with a Iurii Dunin being the owner who lives in Latvia with Latvian residency, Originally born in Russia. The boards are made in a Chinese factory that is owned by Iurii with the help of Aquatech Solutions Limited who are the investment capital from Hong Kong .
SUPboarder organised these reviews in autumn 2021 with FC UP, the UK distributor of the brand (a UK company) who manage a lot of the product development and marketing of the brand. Gladiator is not a direct sale brand, and therefore has many distribution partners around the world.
SUPboarder is always committed to delivering honest information to help you make the best informed decisions throughout your SUP journey. And we therefore felt it was only right to share this additional information with you following our research
