The Cadence X is a result of customer request; our popular Cadence paddle is now available in a larger blade size, great for increased power and speed.
Paddle Weight (g/oz): 700 / 24
Blade Area (cm2/in2): 650 / 100
Aerospace-quality foam is used for the spline of the CadenceX, resulting in a blade with outstanding stiffness and light weight.
Lendal shafts and blades contain 6 layers of carbon, resulting in paddles with an unparalleled strength to weight ratio. The shaft lay-up was engineered using multiple types of carbon to provide the strength and flex patterns needed for all paddling conditions. The holy grail in carbon composite manufacturing is to make parts that are 65 percent carbon by weight, and 35 percent resin by weight. Our processes and mold making capabilities at Lendal allow us to hit this target. Our competitors’ products are 50 – 50. The difference is noticeable.
All Lendal NA paddles have an ergonomic grip which makes the paddle feel as if it is part of your hand. This is possible due to our propriety state-of-the-art bladder chemistry and molding used to create a shaft that is incredibly strong, light, and physiologically accurate. The pronounced oval shaped shafts make the paddle feel like an extension of the arm, making advanced maneuvers – such as rolling – a snap. The current grip geometry is the result of test studies where it was preferred by 95% of US, European, and Asian world-class paddlers. One try and any paddler will agree it’s simply superior to any other shaft on the market.
The LEVERLOK is a robust joint that provides continuous feather adjustments, left or right handed compliance, and length extension up to 5 cm. This durable, reliable system easily detaches and connects without tools. You can rest assured that this system will perform in the most extreme situations.
The Leverlok is the standard system on all two piece paddles.
Our patented PADDLOK system gives our four piece paddles the feel, and security of a one-piece paddle. You can quickly and easily lock our shafts and blades together, or take them apart using the Paddlok key. It’s the lightest and simplest joint system on the market. The Paddlok system is only available with a custom four piece paddle.
