Introducing the latest evolution in paddling excellence — the next generation of ‘super paddles’ has arrived. Offering a greatly enhanced paddling experience, the Hydro SynergyX empowers you to achieve increased board speed, maintain a higher paddling cadence, and paddle for extended durations. In partnership with world champions Seychelle Webster and Arthur Arutkin, and drawing inspiration from the success of the Hydro series, this new Black Project paddle has been meticulously tuned to dominate middle and long distance races. Prepare to redefine your paddling experience.
PADDLE TECHNOLOGY & FEATURES
OPTIMIZED FOR LONG-DISTANCE EFFICIENCY
To achieve a combination of race winning speed and endurance, the blade has been optimized for efficiency. With a moderate blade angle of 10°, a narrower entry, and thinner blade profile, each paddle stroke is effortlessly smooth with an easy catch. The wider blade shoulders and medium depth Power Scoop give the option to increase power if needed during competitive racing or higher intensity paddle workouts. The competitive speed and racing edge associated with the Hydro SynergyX was demonstrated during the 2023 season with both Arthur Arutkin and Seychelle Webster claiming long-distance wins with a variety of prototypes. Arthur is pictured winning the APP distance race in Korea using a prototype blade and TourCarbon 65 shaft.
REACT+ TECHNOLOGY (RE+T)
The Hydro SynergyX incorporates our cutting-edge Advanced Flow Technology (AFT) and Power Scoop Technology (PST). The result is the now distinctive three-dimensional design which enables more efficient paddling, promoting increased board speed and reduced fatigue. Unveiling our latest innovation, the Hydro Synergy introduces REACT+ Technology (RE+T). This incorporates two external 30T UD carbon plates, amplifying blade power, responsiveness, and energy return. Strategically placing these laminates on the outer layer of the structure multiplies the overall effect, resulting in an impressive stiffness-to-weight ratio. The RE+T is tuned for each blade size, ensuring optimal flex tailored to paddler size.
TOUR CARBON 30T DOUBLE TAPERED SHAFT
The all-new Tour Carbon shaft series is a key component of the Hydro SynergyX that brings reduced weight, added power, responsiveness, grip, and comfort. The double tapered round-oval-round design increases stiffness in the lower shaft area for enhanced stability and power transfer to the blade. The more flexible and thinner round upper section helps to reduce fatigue. The oval-shaped middle-grip area provides a directional feel and a secure grip with a natural carbon-textured matte finish. Our lightest, most responsive shafts are built with 30T carbon. The Tour series offers four distinct profiles, each with various length and stiffness options. The Tour range consists of twelve shaft stiffnesses which perfectly match paddler weight and height combinations across the full spectrum of paddlers. The TourCarbon is part of our new collection of distinctive and innovative shafts – TOUR Carbon, APEX Carbon and QUEST Carbon.
POWERGRIP - THE AWARD WINNING HANDLE
The award-winning hollow carbon PowerGrip ensures that every ounce of effort is translated into forward motion; the ergonomic design maintains comfort throughout extended paddling sessions. The PowerGrip was voted as the best handle in the SUP Boarder Pro Mega Test and has been extremely popular since its introduction.
PUSHING THE LIMITS OF DESIGN, MATERIALS & MANUFACTURING
We embarked on a mission to push the limits of design, materials, and manufacturing processes, aiming to create a paddle that would further revolutionize the way people think about paddles altogether – the Hydro SynergyX is the culmination of this effort – a natural evolution in paddle design, delivering substantial performance gains. For those truly committed to enhancing their paddling performance, now is the opportune moment to upgrade and capitalize on the forefront of technological advancements and the expertise of Black Project designers and athletes. This new edition marks a substantial leap forward, offering substantial performance benefits for racing, touring, and fitness enthusiasts alike.
BLADE SIZE GUIDE
Selecting the right components to suit your paddling requirements is of utmost importance. Our sizing and shaft charts simplify the process of choosing the perfect shaft and blade combination, ensuring a user-friendly and straightforward selection experience. This paddle is the preferred choice of world champions Seychelle Webster and Arthur Arutkin, and is also used by athletes including Blue Ewer, and Bernd Roediger and more for medium to long-distance and endurance races.
