Lettmann paddles are supplied to us as kitset so length and blade offset can be fitted individually
with a join in the middle of the shaft. A complete fitting kit is supplied or we can fit
the paddle for you. The shafts are ovalised in the hand grip area. Blades have been hydro-dynamically designed, using
aviation research results in order to get high performance paddles.
Lettmann offers most of their
paddles in two construction types:
LCS 70: Paddles are made of 70% carbon, 10% kevlar and 20%
fibre glass, in combination with high quality epoxy resins. This offers unsurpassed
stiffness and robustness of blade and shaft. LCS 70 is the top material series of
LCS 50: This is Lettmann's standard quality for carbon
paddles. The composition is 50% carbon, 40% fibre glass and 10% sandwich material, all
combined with the high quality epoxy resins of the LCS 70 paddles.
Lettmann Multi Wave
New for 2012:
The Multi Wave blades have a unique wave pattern across the
back and the power face of the blade, increasing stiffness
Constructed in LCS 50 only,
the blades are compression moulded and fitted individually
to the shaft.
The shaft has the same ergonomic design as on the flagship
Ergonom Pro Extreme paddle (below) but with the blade
being closer in line with the shaft axis it is almost a
neutral bent shaft.
