The BREEZE FP Travel 170-210cm Lever-Lock adjustable SUP paddle is a value priced performance paddle with a premium adjustment system that can be taken apart for ease of storage and travel. This paddle is perfect for pairing with inflatable paddle boards as the board and paddle can be stored together in a small space. Ideal for paddlers from 5’2”/1.60m up to 6’4”/1.95m yet still functional beyond this range. The Lever-Lock adjustment system keeps the shaft free of any bulky mechanisms by placing the adjustment mechanism in the T-Handle. An elegant system typically reserved for more expensive paddles. A Carbon/Fiberglass shaft reduces weight and improves flex for higher performance compared to an aluminum shaft.
The design and performance of the BREEZE blade is based on the three phases of an efficient paddle stroke: The Catch: Our blades 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 Pull: This 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 Recovery: Just as important as the Catch, a clean recovery minimizes power loss and maintains rhythm. The Beach paddle blade has 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 correct
BREEZE paddles are designed for exploring further from the shore in open waters and for paddlers looking for a light-weight, high performance paddle at a value price. Carbon-Fiberglass shafts are paired with reinforced nylon blades for strength, light-weight and performance. The premium Lever-Lock adjustment system allows for a customized length with no bulky mechanism on the shaft to get in the way.
