Black Project Hydro FlowX Race Paddle
The proprietary Advanced Flow Technology (AFT) is designed to significantly increase paddle efficiency and smoothness by reducing turbulence and unwanted blade movements. The Deep Power Scoop (DPS) with dihedral edges delivers power in a controlled manner and works in harmony with AFT to create a first-of-its-kind paddling experience.
BP's Fastest Ever Paddle – While individual results will vary and speed is just one aspect to consider, Black project's testing has shown the Hydro FlowX will increase your average speed. When putting in a similar effort, paddlers can expect a 3-5% improvement in speed and lap times or paddle the same speed with less effort (when compared to the original Hydro, which is already faster than most race paddles).
Reduced Fatigue – The combination of flow technology and deep scoop produces a fluid stroke which reduces energy usage while increasing forward thrust. The outcome is significantly less paddler fatigue––enabling you to paddle longer and faster than ever before.
4% Lighter –To reduce overall weight, the layups have been reworked and introduced 30-ton carbon – a strong but lightweight carbon that’s 25% lighter than Their previous material. The resulting paddle is approximately 4% lighter than an equivalent model of the original Hydro. Weighing from just 345 grams (12.1 oz), paddlers can maintain a higher cadence for a longer period of time.
Even Stronger – The Hydro FlowX’s redesigned blade offers massive structural strength. This gives the dual benefit of being able to optimize the use of carbon in certain areas, while still achieving an overall strength enhancement.
We have two already assembled and they can be recut to any length.
All Hydro FlowX paddles come complete with A Paddle Bag ($100 value).
We actively try to steer away from the board shop vibe. We encourage questions, demos sessions, and gear research to make sure what you get is 100% right for your needs. We strive to do right by every customer (local or online) and welcome all paddlers to the Mike's Paddle Tribe!
Paddler Tested: Paddler Approved
All brands we carry have been vetted, tested, and approved by our team members. We don't like to sell gear that we wouldn't paddle or purchase ourselves and never want to rep a less than 100% awesome product!
