The paddle shaft is a special blend of carbon fiber that is softer then normal paddles to give it a distinctive 'alive' feeling in your hands.
We've spent a lot of time playing with the right compounds to get it just right and the action is endorsed by world championship paddlers.
The paddle shaft collapses into 2 pieces (one of which houses the adjustable shaft length) and is length adjustable to suit any height.
The pieces are each 17.5" long and will easily fit inside a carry on bag (typical carry on bag height is 22-24").

The primary resistance mechanism is the internal planetary gearbox which drives a weighted flywheel. It's been specifically designed to replicate the feel of water.
Variable resistance is provided by extremely powerful magnets that can be selected at up to 10 resistance levels. At level 10 in ski mode whipr can generate over 650N, equivalent to a hard uphill ski.

Into firm ground using the ground anchor.
