Program :

High Performances. Priority centralized being feather light and rowing cadence.

A High End paddle comprising of dynamic qualities, super versatile shape and a record breaking feather light weight that works as well for surfing as it does for racing.

The 8″ model is recommended for riders between than 70 and 90kg wanting the best performances.

Introduction :

The Blade shape is quick, at rowing accelerartion and for surfing she cuts into the water perfectly due to her pointed convexed extrado.

While paddling, the outline of the blade tip is powerful. The intrado is flat and slightly V’d which minimilizes water catch but the blade rocker is very kicked at the tip which in turn makes up for it. The catch is excellent.

It’s a fast accelerating paddle, from the first dip. She has a little bit of volume to offer you something to lean on while stopped.

While surfing this blade skims the water fantastically due to its specific tip shape. Its very close to a boards shape that has great rocker. The water flumes quick and cleanly. You’ll never feel like you’re being pulled back when leaning on this paddle. There is no bouncing when skimming the water either.

What’s more this paddle has no ridges. The Extrado and Intrado are both very fluid. In fact, when the blade is submerged while surfing she maintains her glide. It offers an incredible amount of fluidity on both faces and along all her angles. This point is very important for surf and doing moves when switching the paddle. This guarantees some high level surfing.

The Handle :

The handle is a mini ergonomic T, very thin, ideal for long sessions without losing precision. The sharp T allows great precision while negotiating the blade in the water or out.  Exiting the water is cleaner because your high hand perfectly manipulates the blade angle. The ergonomics have been focused on the faces and the tips of the T. No oversized volume on this handle, the ergonometry is discret and efficient. The grip in your palm is well tolerated and well repartioned. The ergonomics were specifically designed for intensive utilization. Prolonged contact discomfort is erased, the tips of the T were particular conceived to not mark the contours of your hand and assure you optimal precision. No worrying about thumb pain after a long session. Ergonomic AND efficient.

The Shaft :

The Pro model shaft is round with an intermidiate diameter that adds to its lightness.

It is more supple than our classic Carbon models all while keeping the best dynamic qualities.

    TOP, vraiment super changement avec mon autre pagaie GONG 100 % en 3 parties :
    Achetée en taille 8″ / spot Vendée.
    Pour mes 1m85 et 80 kg + GONG Mob 8’3 : pagaie coupée à + 4cm / utilisation vague : beaucoup + de puissance pour partir sur les vagues molles, + de flex, poids record aussi en 8″, très fine de profil mais avec + de volume j’ai l’impression, surtout le coté + d’appui pour se rattraper en équilibre ou en appui dans les vagues ou pour passer les barres en équilibre…
    BREF, vraiment top, n’hésitez pas à investir 70 euros de +, c’est vraiment top en changement et au niveau plaisir sur l’eau.
    Niveau taille de pagaie, je recommande fortement la 8″ pour mon type de gabarit ou au-delà.
    Merci pour ce top matos à prix + que contenu.
