What happens when you combine a kayaking company and Pensar? You get the lightest strongest paddles ever made. Pensar took industry leading Finite Element Analysis and combined it with ultra high end class A surfacing to deliver the highest performing paddles for whitewater and sea kayaking. Pensar designed the first Kevlar reinforced paddle and as a result was presented in the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum for innovative use of materials. The dihedrals on a paddle’s power blade are critical to its performance in water. Pensar’s surfacing expertise optimized performance of Big Spoons paddles by minimizing the turbulent flow of a paddle moving through water.
What do you do after delivering the lightest and strongest paddle ever made? You go try to break it! Extensive testing has been undertaken by Pensar and next generation testing is currently ongoing on a river close by.
