What is the benefit of a carbon paddle?
Light swing weight and stiffness. The stiff nature of carbon allows us to use less material, thus lighter swing weight while still achieving high specification standards for performance, durability and strength. .
What is the advantage of WAVEDESIGN paddles?
WAVEDESIGN paddles are the first FULL CARBON paddles 100% MADE IN ITALY.
They have been designed using the latest technology available.
We try to create the best performing paddles in terms of design and function by balancing durability, weight and feel, which determines performance.
Through 3-D modeling, Finite Element Analysis, Stress Calculations and Molding Process we guarantee the quality of the product.
The Carbon fiber paddle is very consistent due to the molding process. The paddles’ flexibility can be changed by altering the carbon composition, allowing them to flex in a similar fashion to wood or to be as rigid as steel. You can choose.
Our Paddle are built with carbon fiber pre-pregs and autoclave cured (8 bar 160 °C). Pressure and Temeprature are optimized.
Our paddles are built to be flexible, preventing muscle and joint injuries. For this purpose WAVEDESIGN combines careful design suitable to facilitate elasticity, to a precise carbon fibers displacement.
How do I care for my WAVEDESIGN paddle?
Taking care of your paddleboard is pretty easy. There’s not a whole lot you need to do to/for it. But these few things will help your paddle stay nicer for longer:
Always protect your paddle from direct sunlight when it is not in use. Keep YOUR Handle/Grip/Adjustment System/Blade below 60 ° C. Blades and Shafts are combined with thermal paste. If the temperature of the paddle increase more than 60 ° C, you may lost the proper paddle orientation. No problem: the fiber part will not bend, deform ore broke, but you need an alignment.
A paddle bag provides the best overall protection from ultraviolet light. If you stow your paddle immediately after using it, you won’t drive off without it – or over it.
Keep the blade edges sanded or filed smooth.
Rinse your paddle after use with fresh water.
Take care of your care for your Adjustable Adjustable Shaft System: after every use take your paddle apart and rinse both sides inside and out with fresh water; store your paddle hanging apart with blades up.
