Black Project OHANA REFLEX Paddle
An all water recreational SUP paddle. The Black Project Ohana Reflex paddle is designed for paddlers looking for enhanced performance in a lightweight & durable construction.
Designed to maximize family fun while minimizing cost. The Black Project Ohana Reflex paddle is the ultimate entry-level paddle. Lightweight and durable, it represents a big performance upgrade over other entry-level paddles on the market.
This 60% carbon paddle shares much of the same DNA as our premier race and surf paddles (Hydro and Surge). It features a more forgiving blade design and paddle construction that is better suited for recreational paddlers.
Two blade sizes, two shaft diameter options, palm handle option and available in Fixed, Adjustable shaft. The Ohana caters to all paddlers in all water conditions from surfing to flat water cruising and travel.
New for 2020 Black Project have improved both the aesthetics and performance of the Ohana. In addition to new artwork this season, the new REFLEX UD Medium flex shaft will provide paddlers with enhanced performance and durability.
Scooped Dihedral Blade Technology
The Ohana 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 ten 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 Ohana blade design delivers a predictable and efficient paddle stroke which encourages 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 Ohana 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. The 60% carbon and fiberglass mix adds a little more flex and comfort which is ideal for new and recreational paddlers.
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 Ohana we wanted a little more blade flex for increased comfort, so the Power Ridge is more subtle than on the Hydro or Surge.
