The response to our new Hydro FlowX has been overwhelming.
Incorporating over a decade’s worth of research, data and innovation, this paddle is lighter and faster than our original Hydro, while simultaneously requiring less effort from the paddler. Not only does this significantly improve speed and acceleration, but also leads to reduced fatigue and strain––extremely effective for preventing and rehabilitating injuries.
We believe the Hydro FlowX is the best paddle in the sport. But at the end of the day, only one opinion truly matters––yours.
Whether you are training, racing or cruising, this paddle was designed to enhance every moment spent on the water––both in terms of performance and pleasure. Here’s what the Black Project ohana is saying about their on-water experience with the Hydro FlowX.
Pro SUP athletes views on the Hydro FlowX...
Tyler Bashor – @tyler_bashor – As an elite athlete, I’ve had the opportunity to try countless different paddles from a handful of companies. The catch and pull phase of the Hydro FlowX is much more forgiving and powerful than any other paddle I’ve used in the past. I always had trouble with sustaining sprints and bumping up my pace in the middle or end of a race, but the Hydro FlowX has really helped me overcome those difficulties. The flex of the paddle allows me to sustain longer distance sprints without overly taxing my muscles, while the Deep Power Scoop on the back of the blade creates a consistent catch. Both of these features create a great combination of both ease and power when I start sprinting.
Kane DeGrauw – @kanedegrauw_ – First of all, the Deep Power Scoop is a game changer for racing! This is our windy season, with the wind consistently blowing 20-30 knots and upwind paddling is where I felt this paddle shine. No chatter or turbulence in the water, combined with the increased rake angle, results in a very clean, consistent and smooth turnover. Efficiency, power, glide has all improved! We cannot wait to get to the start line of an upcoming sprint race with these weapons!
Chloe Walkerdene – @chloe_walkerdene – In addition to what Kane mentioned, I noticed the thick spine at the connection of the shaft and blade still has no wear and tear whatsoever. This is huge as we wore down our paddles very fast at the shaft in the past, but after three weeks and almost 250 kilometers, this paddle still doesn’t have a single scratch.
