The "U-V" is the lightest, strongest and most powerful blade Quickblade has ever created. This paddle is all about more power, less effort. The signature scoop creates a stronger catch with a smaller surface area, while the new "Black Diamond Elite" shaft is our strongest/lightest carbon creation -- strategically removing excess materials and adding a little bit back in just the right places to maximise strength/minimize weight. Train Hard. Go Fast. Have Fun!
