LEVERLOCK™ ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM

We’ve tested them all and this is the best adjustment system we’ve found. The feel and performance of a fixed-length paddle with the versatility and convenience of an adjustable. Featuring an infinite adjustment range, no clunky adjustment mechanism to get in the way and no parts to lose. Made of rugged polycarbonate, fiberglass and stainless steel for maximum durability and performance.

 

OPTIMIZED FLEX

Extensive testing helped us determine the ideal flex pattern for maximum comfort and performance. Adding a bit more flex to the paddle provides positive feedback to the user and maximizes effective power output while reducing stress on joints for longer, more enjoyable paddle sessions.


The design and performance of SIC paddle blades is based around three phases of an efficient paddle stroke:

 

The CatchOur blade are designed for a smooth entry into the water with minimal splash or blade rotation during entry. This allows the blade to become firmly planted in the water for the second phase of the stroke…

The PullThis is where power is applied from the paddler, to the blade, into the water and is what propels you forward. Keeping the blade slightly narrower and longer than traditional SUP paddle blades gives you several “gears” depending on how deeply you insert the paddle into the water. Together with a slight dihedral in the blade it also reduces cavitation (flutter) for maximum transfer of power from body to blade to water.

The RecoveryJust as important as the Catch, a clean recovery minimizes power loss and maintains rhythm. Oxbow paddle blades have minimal ‘curve’ in the blade and a thin profile. This allows the blade to “pop” out of the water at the end of the stroke quickly and cleanly. The thin profile also increases blade performance when feathering the paddle through the water, which is an advanced recovery technique used in many situations, from helping maintain balance to course corrections.
