The Black Project LAVA REFLEX Paddle
A lightweight & forgiving all water SUP Paddle, the Black Project Lava Reflex is built to excel in all conditions from flat water to surfing.
Versatile, strong and lightweight, the Black Project Lava Reflex paddle is your best bet if you want one paddle to do it all.
This full carbon paddle shares much of the same DNA as our premier race and surf paddles (Hydro and Surge). Featuring a more forgiving blade design that’s better suited for a less aggressive and lower cadence paddle stroke.
Three blade sizes, two shaft diameter options, two handle options. The Black Project Lava Reflex Paddle caters to all paddlers in all water conditions from surfing to flat water cruising and travel.
Scooped Dihedral Blade Technology
The Lava blade is designed to correct poor alignment often associated with fatigue and injury. The Scooped Dihedral shaping holds the water securely through the power phase. This eliminates lateral blade movement and delivering force in a smooth and efficient manner.
The extension of the tapered scoop towards the toe allows the paddle to remain stable and deliver power, even if you fail to get the full blade in the water. This toe shaping also ensures a clean catch and efficient blade release.
Overall, the Lava blade design delivers a predictable and efficient paddle stroke. Encouraging the use of smaller blades while protecting your body from injury and reducing fatigue.
Ten Degrees Blade Angle Promotes Comfort And Feel
We designed the Lava blade to be a little more forgiving and suit a less aggressive and lower cadence paddle stroke. The moderate 10° blade angle promotes an a smooth paddle stroke and a little more comfort than the Hydro.
Structural Blade Stability
The ridge along the front of the blade increases stiffness both vertically and laterally, resulting in increased strength. This structure helps the blade maintain better stability for a predictable feel you can count on. For the Lava we wanted a little more blade flex for increased comfort. So the Power Ridge is more subtle than on the Hydro or Surge.
