Featuring a completely reimagined design, the Hydro FlowX is a paddle unlike any other.
At first glance, your eyes will pop at the feature on the neck of the blade––an innovative new design that we call Advanced Flow Technology (AFT). It is designed to significantly increase paddle efficiency and smoothness by reducing turbulence and unwanted blade movements.
Next, you’ll notice another major structural update––the Deep Power Scoop (DPS) on the blade face. Featuring a deep scoop design with dihedral edges, it delivers power in a controlled manner and works in harmony with our Advanced Flow Technology to create a first-of-its-kind, three-dimensional paddle design.
The combination of the flow technology and deep scoop produces a fluid paddle stroke which reduces energy usage while increasing forward thrust. The outcome is significantly less paddler fatigue – enabling you to paddle longer, faster and more often than ever before.
The 3D blade design concept enables water to flow more efficiently around the paddle by eliminating turbulence and unwanted fluid resistance, which in turn, allows the paddler to truly harness the power of the water and enhance the efficiency of their paddle stroke. Additionally, we increased the rake angle to a little over 9 degrees––compared to 8 degrees in the original Hydro – for a slightly easier catch.
The end result is a completely reimagined paddling sensation that will feel smoother, easier and ultimately – faster.
While individual results will vary and speed is just one aspect to consider, our testing has shown the Hydro FlowX will increase your overall speed. When putting in a similar effort, paddlers can expect a 3-5% improvement in speed and lap times or paddle the same speed with less effort (when compared to the original Hydro, which is already faster than most race paddles).
While this might not sound like much, saving just three seconds per kilometer in a 10K race will shave 30 seconds off your overall time. Not to mention, reduced fatigue will allow for powerful late race bursts and more training sessions––two critical factors that will give you a consistently bigger advantage over time, while simultaneously protecting your body.
Based on more than 20 years of professional water sports experience, Chris Freeman’s philosophy is that smaller, softer and more flexible paddles are both faster and safer. And with the Hydro paddle winning eight racing world titles in 2019, the results don’t lie.
