V Drive- 91 sq/In Vector Net
This paddle concept was created and shaped by legendary waterman dave kalama.
its design features a unique scooped v section that’s edges create a double dihedral for enhanced stability during the power application.
the colorful vector-net lay-up’s have the perfect balance of stiffness and flex in this hybrid construction.
the paddle has all of the features and designs of it’s original all carbon cousin. but in this new hybrid construction you get a little more flex than full carbon , but not as much as the fiberglass blade but some additional stiffness as a result of the carbon netting built into the paddle. this new construction comes an amazing array of new eye catching colors.
with excellent torsional stiffness they’re ideal for both surfing, touring and racing, while more forgiving on the shoulders and wrists than the all carbon version.
The results offer a very stable yet effective power phase with an effortless exit. great for catching waves, racing and touring.
The SUP Hut tested the V drive in comparison with another branded paddle with a very similar blade size. There was a noticable difference in torque with the branded paddle , this was noticed to make this paddle flutter slightly. The V drive however seemed to catch and offer a slightly softer stroke effort, which over a 100 metre sprint meant less fatigue was felt using the V drive paddle.
'Whether you feel it or not there is definately something going on with the 'V drive' concept to make the paddle work in your favour'
