HYDRO – Racing & Flatwater Built for speed and endurance.
The lightweight & responsive Hydro is BLACK PROJECTS paddle for racing & flatwater enthusiasts. A no-compromise racing paddle which delivers power and speed. The compact blades deliver more power per sq. in. than other paddles enabling athletes to use smaller paddles at a higher cadence.
The innovative blade design enabled us to add more propulsion while increasing comfort & reducing fatigue. The power is concentrated in the sweet spot and the blade stays rock solid during the pull. This increased power and control is especially noticeable during upwind legs where every ounce of energy it utilized.
From just 375 grams the Hydro is the lightest race paddle available.
Put simply the Hydro enables you to paddle faster for longer.
For 2019 Black Project have introduced new blade sizes/options with the XL blade for bigger paddlers and two slim-fit options, the Medium and Small are now available with reduced diameter shaft.
Black Project have introduced our new TEXCARBON construction which is the lightest and strongest construction yet, while the new finer texture offers enhanced grip. They have also made the Hydro available in REFLEX100 carbon construction which offers performance at a slightly lower price point.
