Shape and Size
In shape and size, the Tower Adventurer 2 differs slightly from the original Adventurer. For instance, it is 10ft.4in. long instead of 9ft.10in. long. This increased length allows the board to respond and maneuver more quickly through the water. In addition, the Tower Adventurer 2 comes with a thickness of 6 in. instead of the standard 4 inches found in many other inflatable paddle boards. This increased thickness allows the board to maneuver through the water without taking on water or sagging in the middle. When deflated, the board shrinks to a compact 12in. X 33in. in order to maintain the same compactness and portability of the original model.
As mentioned above, the Tower Adventurer 2 is designed to be faster and more maneuverable in the water than the original. These features make it a good choice for paddle boarders who want to use the board in calm water or small waves. It is also intended to be used by paddle boarders of all experience levels, thanks to its ease of use and responsiveness.
Thanks to its improved thickness, the Tower Adventurer 2 also remains high and dry in the water and can tolerate a weight of up to 350 pounds. The board’s speed, responsiveness, strength, and dryness earn it positive reviews from customers who confirm its claims to reliable and satisfying movement on the water. They also report that children and paddle boarders of various experience levels have successfully used the board and find that the board remains stable, even in somewhat choppy water. The result is that this board proves its quality as an exceptional inflatable paddle board for a variety of paddle boarder.
The Tower Adventurer 2 comes with a number of accessories. For instance, it sports a basic pump and a 3-piece paddle. Users report that the pump makes it easy to inflate the board to the desired PSI. The paddle, because it is fiberglass, is of higher quality than the typical steel paddle that is included with other boards, and is also easy to assemble.
The Tower Adventurer 2 improves upon the accessories provided in the original model with the addition of a bungee cord for storing items, and the addition of front and rear carry handles. These handles make it easier to bring the board back and forth from the water, even when it is inflated. The result is a board that is designed to be convenient to use right out of the box.
Even though it is an inflatable paddle board, the Tower Tower Adventurer 2 is designed to mimic the rigidity of regular paddle boards. For instance, the extra thickness that characterizes both it and the original Adventurer allow it to be firmer when inflated. This means that it is unlikely to sag on the water or to take on water.
In addition, the board is designed with military grade PVC that is tougher and firmer than other materials. This PVC has been stitched together with drop stitch construction. This type of construction places the PVC in vertical rows that make it even more rigid when inflated. Finally, the board can inflate to a PSI of 25 instead of the standard 10-15 PSI. As a result, once inflated, the Tower Adventurer 2 is more rigid than most other paddle boards, providing an experience that is much more like that available on a regular paddle board. Reviewers confirm that even heavier riders can enjoy the paddle board without causing it to sag or take on water.
Thanks to its rigidity and to its military grade, drop-stitch constructed body, the Tower Adventurer 2 is difficult to damage. Tower has thoroughly tested the board by putting it through various types of abuse in order to confirm its durability. As a result, the board can be bumped or dinged on the water without sustaining damage. Reviewers confirm that this rigidity is one of the elements that makes the Tower Adventurer 2 incredibly durable.
Because the Tower Adventurer 2 can be deflated into a compact size, it retains the portability that makes inflatable iSUPs appealing to so many people. The board is approximately the size of a sleeping bag when rolled up. This size is ideal for tossing it in the trunk or back seat of a car and for storing in a closet other small space. In addition, reviewers report that this board is very light and easy to handle, even when inflated. The addition of the carrying handles in particular add to the ease with which this board can be carried to and from the water.
For paddle boarders looking for a portable paddle board that acts like a regular board, the Tower Adventurer 2 might be a good choice. The board’s new shape and size, as well as the new accessories, make it an upgraded version of the original Adventurer. Its durability, rigidity, and portability make it a high quality board that acts as regular board feel. Strong reviews prove its value and confirm that it can be a good choice for anyone looking for a great iSUP experience.
