We are absolutely thrilled and proud that our first own paddle received the rating "price performance" in the german SUP MAG 01/2021. The big companies in the paddle industry were also in the test and, as newcomers, we immediately delivered a really good product.
We also say thank you to you for motivating us with your feedback.
Is good not good enough for you? Then you are exactly right here! We see it the same way. That is why we have invested a lot of time to be able to present this new paddle to you.
Our new prepreg carbon paddle has everything a really good product should have. Light, stable and durable.
Regardless of whether you are an all-round paddler, touring driver, racer or waver. With this paddle we will convince you. Don't you think so? We do.
Its angled blade gives you direct drive on the water immediately and you will move faster than with your old paddle.
At 723 grams, it is very light and sits comfortably in the hand even after hours of tours on the water. Equipped with an anti-twist divider, the handle can no longer twist.
We also have the right paddle bag for transport.
Due to the unmistakable shape of the drop, the paddle is optimally immersed in the water surface
Power is immediately converted into a straight movement
The name “Carbon” means “carbon fiber reinforced plastic”. For this purpose, carbon fibers are embedded in a plastic matrix for reinforcement. Carbon fibers are industrially produced fibers made from carbonaceous raw materials that are converted into graphite-like carbon using special thermal processes. The carbon fibers are extremely light and have a high tensile strength.
Prepregs are pre-impregnated carbon fibers, in which the fibers are already soaked in an uncured plastic matrix. This results in better quality with an even distribution of the epoxy resin.
For a long time, prepreg was only used in aerospace engineering!
Carbon is characterized by extreme strength and rigidity. At the same time, it's very easy. The anisotropy of carbon fibers is also amazing. What does this mean? Metals can withstand loads roughly equally well in all directions. This behavior is called "isotropy". Carbon fiber reinforced plastics, on the other hand, withstand loads in the fiber direction much better than across it. Above all, they endure tensile forces in the axial direction, they only withstand pressure loads about half as well. This property is called "anisotropy".
There are often designations such as 1K or 3K on carbon. This describes the amount of tiny, tiny carbon fibers that come together in a bundle. 1K stands for 1000 filaments, 3K for 3000 filaments, etc.
The bundles are interwoven biaxially to form a fabric.
The differences in the types of fabric (1K, 3K etc.) are almost only of visual importance and say nothing about the quality of the material! In order to be able to make statements about the quality of the material, the gram per square meter must be known.
