Lendal: Cadence X, Carbon Blades, Straight Shaft, 2pc
The Cadence Paddle X is a result of customer request; our popular Cadence paddle is now available in a larger blade size, great for increased power and speed.
The Leverlok System comes standard with all orders of this paddle.
Lendal shafts and blades contain 6 layers of carbon, resulting in paddles with an unparalleled strength to weight ratio. The shaft lay-up was engineered using multiple types of carbon to provide the strength and flex patterns needed for all paddling conditions. The holy grail in carbon composite manufacturing is to make parts that are 65 percent carbon by weight, and 35 percent resin by weight. Our processes and mold making capabilities at Lendal allow us to hit this target. Our competitors’ products are 50 – 50. The difference is noticeable.
The Lendal straight shaft has been engineered for superior strength and stiffness yet it maintains a surprisingly light swing weight. Nothing is ever compromised.
All Lendal NA paddles have an ergonomic grip which makes the paddle feel as if it is part of your hand. This is possible due to our propriety state-of-the-art bladder chemistry and molding used to create a shaft that is incredibly strong, light, and physiologically accurate. The pronounced oval shaped shafts make the paddle feel like an extension of the arm, making advanced maneuvers – such as rolling – a snap. The current grip geometry is the result of test studies where it was preferred by 95% of US, European, and Asian world-class paddlers. One try and any paddler will agree it’s simply superior to any other shaft on the market.
There are many advantages to a straight shaft. If you reposition your hands often, whether to only lessen the strains from gripping too tight, moving closer to the blades for more leverage or because you are bracing, a straight shaft is the clear choice. No matter where your hands are on a straight shaft the feel and comfort will be there with little or no action or thought. If your preference is white water, rough or chaotic water and you are not paddling great distances then choose the Lendal straight shaft.
The LEVERLOK is a robust joint that provides continuous feather adjustments, left or right handed compliance, and length extension up to 5 cm. This durable, reliable system easily detaches and connects without tools. You can rest assured that this system will perform in the most extreme situations.
