After years of testing and evaluating, Danny Ching and his team have developed a new design that allows paddlers to be explosive in sprints, but also not overly taxing on the body over longer distances. This is the ideal paddle for longer distances, as the larger surface area creates a powerful stroke, but the narrow 7.1-inch blade makes the 94″ large paddle area feeling extremely compliant and effortless. The Triple G carries most of its surface area higher up on the blade, allowing the paddle to hold the catch farther and easier than most other paddles on the market today. Like all Hippostick paddles, it also features an ABS (thermoplastic polymer) edge around it, which reduces susceptibility to cracking and splitting. A great paddle not only for racing but also for touring.
The Triple G is available as an EXP model with 43 mm shaft flex or as a PRO model with a stiff full carbon shaft and 36 mm flex.
Tanja uses the paddle for almost all distances over 7 kilometers. Especially on ultra distances the paddle is extremely comfortable. She won the SUP 11-Ctiy Tour using the Triple G, while April uses it for sprints and became ICF SUP Sprint World Champion.
