Black Project TEXCARBON Technology race SUP paddle for downwind & flat-water enthusiasts
The HYDRO TEXCARBON Pro Race SUP Paddle is for serious racers who want more speed and reduced fatigue. Whether you are cruising your local lake or crossing channels in Hawaii the Hydro is designed to deliver power while protecting your body. The Hydro combines exceptional power, ultimate stability & dynamic flex to help you paddle faster for longer. One of the first things you will notice with the Black Project paddles is the blade shape and smaller sizes. The design of the paddle has allowed for a smaller blade surface area that reducing fatigue while maximizing the catch and power phase of your paddle stroke.
One of the lightest SUP race paddle available! Made from the Black Project’s proprietary TEXCARBON, the HYDRO comes in from just 375 grams (13 oz), paddlers can maintain a higher cadence for a longer period of time––a huge advantage during tough upwind stretches or during all-out sprints across the finish.
One of the lightest SUP race paddle available. For example; a Hydro Pro 78 cut to 75″ (191cm) is only 14 ounces (396 grams). The Hydro is also one of the strongest SUP paddles you will find and enjoys a near zero failure rate.
One of the things we really like about the Black Project Hydro Paddleboard Race paddle is the easy exchange of any of the three parts that make up this awesome paddle. If you damage or want to customize the shaft length or stiffness or blade size? We can easily change out the individual parts without purchasing the entire paddle.
