With barely any discernible flex in across any direction through the blade, the power transfer is clean and crisp making for a spring like snap of the blade exiting the water and a scalpel like entry on the catch.
The Cadence is a high angle paddle designed for use by all paddlers. For novices, the Cadence inspires confidence, helping them quickly develop intermediate paddling skills. For advanced and professional kayakers, the Cadence provides a paddle capable of tackling the most challenging waters.
The Cadence is the lightest paddle in our lineup, weighing merely 610-650g in full carbon. Its featherweight build is noticeable in both swing weight and strain resistance on the paddle stroke. This results in outstanding purchase, making those long distance days fly by effortlessly. With no discernible flex in any direction across the blade, the power transfer is clean and crisp.
Paddle Weight (g/oz): 610 / 21
Blade Area (cm2/in2): 570 / 88
Aerospace-quality foam is used for the spline of the Cadence, resulting in a blade with outstanding stiffness and low 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 obvious.
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 proprietary 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.
