Quickblade 'V' drive 71
V Drive - 71 sq/In
This paddle concept was created and shaped by legendary Waterman Dave Kalama.
Its design features a unique scooped V section that’s edges create a double dihedral for enhanced stability during the power application.
The results offer a very stable yet effective power phase with an effortless exit.
Great for catching waves, racing and touring.
The SUP Hut tested the V drive in comparison with another branded paddle with a very similar blade size. There was a noticable difference in torque with the branded paddle , this was noticed to make this paddle flutter slightly. The V drive however seemed to catch and offer a slightly softer stroke effort, which over a 100 metre sprint meant less fatigue was felt using the V drive paddle.
'Whether you feel it or not there is definately something going on with the 'V drive' concept to make the paddle work in your favour'
