THE NEXT GENERATION OF SUPER PADDLES

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. 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.

 

TOUR CARBON – OVAL TAPER 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 tapered oval 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.

 

POWERGRIP 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.

 

REACT+ TECHNOLOGY (RE+T)

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.

 

ADVANCED PADDLE TECHNOLOGY (AFT & PST)

Utilizing our Advanced Flow with Power Scoop technology and built with 30T carbon and Kevlar, this is the fastest and most responsive paddle on the market. If you are serious about winning, the Hydro SynergyX belongs in your paddle quiver for long-distance racing.

 

PADDLE BAG INCLUDED

All Hydro SynergyX paddles come complete with our Paddle Bag ($125 value).

  1. Best paddle I've ever used

    tack2501-May 25, 2024 at 8:20 am

    Had the chance to really put the new Synergy X to the test. It took me about 20 km of paddling to get used to the feel, positioning, and catch, but once I did, AMAZING. The paddle is a dream. Great catch, smooth power, and much less fatigue over long distances. Came in 8th overall at the Carolina Cup Money Island and 3rd in the 18-49. Looking forward to racing it more this summer. Thanks for everything,

  2. Great investment.

    dfinn1000-May 18, 2024 at 3:21 am

    I love this new Hydro SynergyX paddle. The catch felt soft yet grippy. The pull created tremendous power yet was easy on my arms & shoulders. I’m amazed at how powerful it felt considering the blade size (M 85). I was considering the Large blade but super happy I took Chris’ advise and went with the medium. Prior to purchasing I was very apprehensive about going to an oval, tapered shaft as all my previous paddles had round shafts. No regrets. It felt awesome.

  3. Worthwhile upgrade

    adriancwarren-May 6, 2024 at 12:34 pm

    Love the Hydro Synergyx, had the HydroFlowX previously and loved that but the Synergy is my favourite now. It’s slightly lighter, feels easier to keep my technique good on distance paddles when tiring, I’m noticing less noise in entry of water. It cuts into the water a little cleaner/smoother too.

    1. Chris Freeman-May 6, 2024 at 10:06 pm

      Fantastic, great to hear that it is working out well, I personally also love the super clean and quiet entry.

  4. The light tapered oval shaft enhances stability!

    aymee-May 4, 2024 at 8:28 am

    I thought my HydroFlowX was magical, but BlackProject, you’ve done it again! The Hydro SynergyX is truly a game-changer. The new PowerGrip handle allows my wrist to rest, enabling smoother and longer distances without straining. The light tapered oval shaft enhances stability, making the catch feel smooth as the blade enters the water, like a knife cutting through butter. Additionally, the sleek black, red, and white graphics design gives it a sexy and slick appearance. I’m absolutely in love with it; it’s now my weapon of choice.

    1. Chris Freeman-May 4, 2024 at 8:29 am

      Awesome!!! Stoked you love it 😍

  5. Injury Prevention

    juerg.geser-February 24, 2024 at 1:24 pm

    Love how you can customize this paddle to your needs! I’m 5’10, 185 pounds on a good day, and just turned 54 in January this year (2024), the older I get, the more I enjoy long distance and ultra distance races (Sup11Citytour). But with age, injuries (pinched nerves/muscle pain between spine and shoulder blade) have been a challenge, especially last year. This is the main reason why I switched to Blackproject, needed a paddle with shaft flex that is forgiving enough for long distance, while still providing the performance edge needed to stay competitive. The blade also makes a huge difference, solid catch which gives you the confidence to really load the blade, but not to aggressive, just an incredible feel, no flutter either which is crucial to reduce the risk of injuries. I’m confident to put in around 1000 to 1200 miles into my training/racing this year with the new Hydro Synergy X, I’m paddling the 150/70 shaft with the medium blade, cut to 74.5”.

      Great to have you back on Black Project, look forward to following your progress and I’ll see you at the races soon 🏆
