The carbon-reinforced nylon blade has an eight degree bend with a slight curve, allowing for an aggressive “catch” at the beginning of the stroke.
The dihedral blade design of the MAX SUP Carbon provides an easy “pull” through the water, while the light weight flex offers an easy exit from the water.
The ergonomic grip fits any hand, keeping the blade oriented during each stroke.
The MAX SUP Carbon is one in a series of new SUP paddles from Accent, which are manufactured in the US. According to Stuart Lee, Jr – co-owner of Accent Paddles, “With over 40 years of paddling experience, we have designed a paddle that offers beginners to experts a paddle they will feel happy using in any water. We are very excited to offer many advanced design features and construction methods to accommodate a wide range of customers. We guarantee you will love this paddle.”
Weighing in at 34ozs, with a longest breakdown length of 34 inches, the MAX SUP Carbon is highly portable – perfect for use with inflatable SUPS. And at $189, the Accent MAX SUP is one of the more affordable carbon SUP paddles on the market.
