The Strike is our out-and-out speed machine, designed with only one purpose in mind: putting you on top of the podium. The Strike was developed by Kai-Nicolas Steimer. By combining his extensive racing experience and naval engineering background, he found the perfect balance between speed and control. The sleek, efficient design is simply the fastest board you can paddle on flat water.
This is achieved by combining balanced nose volume and a narrow race outline, with a unique bottom shape – double concave up front blending to deep mono concave – which delivers smooth efficient gliding, tracking and stability. With the new bottom curve the board transfers each stroke in pure acceleration. Subtle volume distribution and the recessed deck keeps the rider low, while the tail profile further boosts stability and ensures performance in chop and messy water conditions in experienced hands.
The Strike comes in three new sizes and widths of 20”, 22.5” & 25”. The 20” is the go-to raceboard for the super competitive and lighter riders, the 22.5” is the ideal size for racers above 80kg and the 25” is the first choice for riders above 90kg for all-round racing on flatwater or those who get their first touch with racing.
