Anyone who knows our philosophy knows that a paddle without an ergonomic shaft is like a waste of power. The reason for this: Due to the ergonomic shaft, the sheet is moved forward, the pressure point moves in front of the pull point (the hand) and the paddle can be moved through the water without fluttering and thus losslessly. In addition, the positive train path becomes longer.
Now, many years after the introduction of the upstream pressure point, we have responded to the call of those who do not want to hold an ergonomic shaft in their hands, for whatever reason, and have done our best to give our new "Straight-Shaft-Paddle" almost the same positive features as our ergonomist.
For this we have placed the blade forward, with which we achieve a larger front pull in the new Nitro. The pressure build-up becomes better and more even, the pressure point moves forward and the typical flutter of a straight paddle is reduced to a minimum.
Of course, the new paddle also works according to the principle of the "Hydrodynamic Lift". This additionally stabilizes the blade in the water and, with a reduced blade area, ensures a better, more uniform and more efficient pressure build-up. The hydrodynamic lift is achieved by the strongly profiled blade in conjunction with the pressure point forward displacement.
LCS 70 Light
For all those who can not do without performance but well on weight, we have developed the LCS 70 Light body. State-of-the-art materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing ensure a stiff but light paddle with high strength.
- 70% carbon for maximum tensile force, highest stiffness, low weight
- 15% aramid for high impact resistance
- 15% glass fiber for high elasticity
- Epoxy resin matrix for highest strength values
- Edges with aramid reinforcement
