This Black Project Lava SUP paddle is 90% carbon, has adjustable length from its 2-piece configuration and is very lightweight.
This Black Project Lava is a lightweight SUP Paddle built to excel in all conditions from flat water to surfing.
It is a versatile, lightweight and strong, full carbon SUP paddle that shares much of the same DNA as the race & surfing models from Black Project. The result is a high-performance paddle for recreational stand up paddlers, surfing one day, cruising the next & racing at the weekend.
The Lava blade was designed to be a little more forgiving & suit a less aggressive & lower cadence paddle stroke. Throughout the design process all unnecessary weight was removed. It corrects poor alignment often associated with poor technique, fatigue and injury. The scooped dihedral shaping also holds the water securely through the power phase of the stroke.
The regular diameter Reflex 90% carbon shaft is built with 3k pre-preg carbon, with direct focus on flex pattern while maintaining its lightweight and high durability.
The shaft is non-twist, so the handle will always be square with the blade. No need for you to monitor your blade position visually when paddling.
Overall, this paddle comes highly recommended. It is packed full of features that will let you get the most from your every paddle stroke.
