GSI's quickest blade, the Trident Ultra Carbon SUP Paddle is designed for paddlers who have a high cadence paddle style and competitive SUP’ers that need a smaller blade. The blade has the smallest surface of any performance paddle on the market.The Trident Ultra is perfect if you want efficiency and quick strokes with maximum torque and low swing weight. It has the smallest blade, but transfers much more power and forward motion through the stroke than many paddles with larger blades.
There are three reasons the Trident Ultra delivers a smooth and powerful stroke: The wide point of the paddle is not at the tip but in the middle of the paddle. By moving the wide point off the tip of the blade we eliminate the inefficient pear shape and distribute the pressure evenly across the face as the stroke is initiated. This creates a smooth power and eliminates “flutter” because it eliminates tip loading and blade rotation across it’s axis at the strokes initiation.
The curve you see at the top of the paddle face increases backpressure on the blade and torque through your stroke. Placement of this camber at the top of the paddle is critical to performance and power transfer. The oval shaft is stiff. Stiffness = power and efficiency. If you would like a smaller blade with maximum efficiency and torque in quick strokes, the Trident Ultra is a good choice.
