What We Say
Our best selling paddle, the Quickblade V-Drive, gets the ultimate update with the new U-V 88. A deep scoop allows the 88 sq. inch blade to enter the water quicker and offer the power of a bigger size. The new “Black Diamond Elite” shaft is an oval tapered shaft that is lighter and stronger than ever before. The new texture on this shaft is comfortable and grippy, requiring no wax. No matter what style of paddling you are doing (surf, race, foil, or tour), the Ultimate V-Drive is worth every penny!
What Quickblade Says
Meet the U-V 88, the latest addition to the Quickblade family of paddles. The “U-V” is the lightest, strongest and most powerful blade Quickblade have ever created.
This paddle is all about more power, less effort. The signature scoop creates a stronger catch with a smaller surface area, while the new “Black Diamond Elite” shaft is QB’s strongest/lightest carbon creation – strategically removing excess materials and adding a little bit back in just the right places to maximise strength/minimize weight.
“You grab this paddle and you’re like: Woah, this is a whole different feel.” – Dave Kalama.
