Lendal: Storm, MCS Shaft, 2pc, Orange Checkerboard
The STORM is a high performance dihedral foil back paddle designed for every type of paddler; super light (640 grams),controllable in all conditions, predictable through the entire paddle stroke inspiring the paddler in whatever conditions they face.
The design team at Lendal was challenged to design and produce a high performance paddle that would be the perfect paddle for the beginner to the expert. After a year of iterations the STORM is the marriage of the XRANGE foil paddle Kinetik shape as the Kinetik shape has been a favorite for years, with a new dihedral face. It's ease of power delivery and control makes this paddle a 'must have' for anyone serious about performance in all manner of conditions.
The Modified Crank Shaft (MCS) was originally developed for flat water racing, where long distances (50 to 100plus) miles are common. Racers looked to every advantage they could to maximize stroke efficiency. The power of a stroke occurs when the paddle is forward of the paddler and lasts until the paddle is beside the paddler. The MCS shaft helps the paddle blade to etch a much flatter sweep through the water, especially forward of the paddler, and continue it for a longer period. A paddler will also achieve a more effective shift of energy and a cleaner, less resistant upturn at the end of the stroke.
