The profiled blade of the paddle in connection with a straight shaft ensures good propulsion with easy maneuverability in all white water conditions. Regardless of whether you're looking for pressure in air-filled or blue water, with the profile that's no problem. The steady, yet addicting propulsion will also pull you out of one or the other return. Pulling and spinning strokes develop such a grip that only half of the paddle strokes are needed. The robustness of the Profile Extreme is surpassed only by its handling.
