The Fanatic Ripper Carbon 35 Paddle
Its a fact that kids progress so much more when they are comfortable with the equipment they are using. The Ripper Carbon 35 paddle is lightweight and with a small 6.75″ blade makes it super easy for small hands to use – and the adjustment of 130-170cm means it will last them a while!
Fanatic Union Joint System
In the past, all Paddle flex patterns were made up of two parts: the blade, and the shaft. Previously, these two flexible parts were disrupted by an oversized stiff joint, where paddle and shaft were connected. The Fanatic Union Paddle has revolutionised the unified flex pattern. Now running seamlessly from the tip of the blade all the way to the shaft, the mobile connection joint further up the shaft tapers perfectly into a RDM joint. This creates constant flex for an unmatched spring and response with every stroke. From the moment the blade enters the water, your energy is converted into forward drive. The Union Paddle is available in four construction styles for a straightforward selection of the perfect paddle to match your performance and budget.
One step up from the favoured 7.25” blade is the all-new 6.75”. Designed for those paddling with a higher frequency, the slight double concave delivers a super controlled stroke with extra traction and enhanced efficiency. This concept allows for a smaller blade size with increased aerodynamics between strokes and a reduced swing weight when compared to our larger blades.
