LEARN ABOUT THE TECH
Peak Outline: long, narrow blade allows for an easier “catch” and an easier water exit for a gradual power rise. By measuring the immersed blade area, you would yield a level of effort. Facing the wind, the return phase is also facilitated. It will be used for surfing and for its acceleration.
It promotes the “catch” entry in the water, but too pronounced you can be penalized during the exit phase.
The V SHAPE of the blade brings better control by stabilizing the blade during the stroke to avoid the lateral movement similar to falling leaf motion (nasty lateral motion of the paddle when the blade is in the water)
The V DOUBLE CONCAVE offers a stronger V shape which is emphasized by the lateral concaves. This shape brings even more stability to the paddle without increasing the volume of the blade.
To ensure a consistent flex (1), with no hard point on the entire length of the paddle, the blade has to fit inside the shaft (2).
Another advantage of this connection is the absence of external joint line that could damage the rail of the board (3).
The non-skid finish is a “soft touch” varnish that makes the paddle non slippery when wet. This allows the rider to focus on paddling instead of wasting energy in an effort to stop the paddle from slipping. The grip is especially strong when the paddle is wet.
SHAFT STIFNESS: the technologies and materials chosen for the construction of the paddles bring two choices for your shaft rigidity, from the more flexible and tolerant to the more rigid and nervous.
All our paddles incorporate in its blade construction an ABS edge whose purpose is threefold. It protects the blade, participates in its structure and sealing, and is less aggressive to the rails of the boards.
Allows the blade to be ideally positioned in the water, vertical when the power is at its maximum.
