Paddle upgrade options with Fanatic inflatable paddleboards are -
Fanatic Pure Carbon 3 Piece Paddle
Fanatic Carbon 25 3 Piece Paddle
Fanatic Carbon 35 3 Piece Paddle
Fanatic Carbon 50 3 Piece Paddle
The Fanatic Pure Carbon 3 Piece Paddle is the standard paddle choice for tall Fanatic inflatable paddleboards. With a excellent finished 15% carbon glassfibre shaft and a plastic nylon blade, this is a paddle that can withstand the hard knocks of life, and make excellent paddles for recreational use or those taking their first steps into the world of SUP.
The aluminium shaft is an oval shape meaning it fits nicely between your thumb and forefinger, allowing the shaft to sit so that the blade is perpendicular to the side of the board. The aluminium itself means that the shaft is durable and stiff, if on the heavy side. The nylon blade is durable also, with good impact resistance – perfect for recreational use and beginners.
The Fanatic Carbon 25 3 Piece Paddle is effectively the Pure Carbon 3 piece paddle but lighter in weight due to a higher carbon content. This makes the overall experience that much better by creating less fatigue over distance while the shaft is also stiffer, increasing power transfer. The nylon blade of the Carbon 25 has great impact resistance, letting it withstand the impacts from rocks and any other hard knocks; ideal paddle to share with the family, or keep to yourself!
If you are looking to boost your performance further still, we recommend looking at the Fanatic Carbon 35 3 Piece SUP Paddle.
The Fanatic Carbon 35 3 Piece SUP Paddle is a fantastic entry-level performance paddle; its Carbon/Glass shaft composition creates an efficient power transfer with a lightweight feel. This is a paddle for paddlers looking to take it to the next level.
The blade of the Fanatic Carbon 35 3 Piece SUP Paddle is a composite material shaped in a teardrop, low-aspect blade design that enables a powerful catch, ensuring the biggest return for your efforts with no flex. The carbon component stiffens the shaft, ensuring a more direct power transfer, although the fibreglass component creates a little bit of flex, making it a bit more forgiving on your muscles.
The benefits of Fanatic Carbon 35 3 Piece SUP Paddle are well worth the upgrade, as it is a versatile paddle that delivers results; although to get the very best in terms of entry-level performance paddles, we suggest you take a look at the Fanatic Bamboo/Carbon 50 3 Piece SUP Paddle.
The high Carbon composition of the Fanatic Bamboo/Carbon 50 3 Piece SUP Paddle means that the shaft is on the stiffer side, ensuring that every ounce of energy exerted is converted to results; all with an incredibly lightweight feel (and looking stylish at the same time). This is a paddle for those who are getting serious about SUP; who want to boost their performance and look good whilst doing so.
The blade of the Fanatic Bamboo/Carbon 50 3 Piece SUP Paddle is glassfibre with a bamboo finish, delivering excellent return in terms of power transfer, whilst using the proven teardrop, low-aspect blade design, enabling a powerful catch, ensuring the biggest return for your efforts. The higher percentage carbon of the shaft means it is the lightest/stiffest paddle upgrade for Fanatic we offer at The SUP Company, as well as having the incredibly slick and authentic bamboo finish. The Fanatic Bamboo Carbon 50 3 Piece SUP Paddle also features the Fanatic Anti-Twist System. A flat section on the extension and a matching cam cleat system put an end to using additional forces whilst locking your adjustable system, ensuring that your handle will hold fast throughout your paddling session.
