Mana Ellipse Lightweight Carbon Fiber SUP Paddle – Sawyer Paddles

Mana Ellipse Lightweight Carbon Fiber SUP Paddle – Sawyer Paddles

The Mana Ellipse Lightweight Carbon Fiber SUP Paddle is the lightest carbon fiber stand up paddle that Sawyer makes. It’s designed for those of you whose number one concern is getting the lowest weight paddle without sacrificing strength. The paddle isn’t quite as sturdy as most of Sawyer’s other wood reinforced carbon fiber SUP paddles, because the design prioritizes the light weight. However, it is still durable and dependable, as Sawyer products set the bar on the durability front of the high-end carbon fiber paddle market. The Mana paddle also comes in a configuration with the RIP SUP blade.

Specs:
Weight: 25.375 ounces
Blade Dimensions: 15" length by 9.75” width
Paddle Length: U-cut and assemble. Starts at 88"

Often, SUP paddle brands make paddles that use carbon fiber in illogical ways. Just because a paddle is labeled “carbon fiber” does not guarantee paddle security. These blades often snap quickly, or are severely damaged the first time they are nicked or dropped. SUP shops even sell products like the “Paddle Guard,” a $25 SUP accessory product designed to fit the parameter of the paddle. The claim is that this product does not affect the paddle’s performance. I’ve even had this product recommended to me by the owners of these shops, and I can’t help but think a very instinctive question: “Why don’t they just make paddles secure enough to be depended upon without an additional product?” Too many SUP paddle companies don’t.
Even if you aren’t using the SUP paddle as a surfer, the sheer length of an SUP paddle will subject them to a substantial amount of force. When deciding which stand up paddle will fit you, toughness should be a major factor in your decision.
Sawyer’s Bonzai Zephyr, and other stand up paddles like it have a wood core shaft that is strengthened by a braided carbon sleeve. Sawyer knows how to utilize the flex, allure, and strength of wood and complement it with carbon fiber composite technology. For the SUP paddle blades, they use laminated wood reinforced with fiberglass, carbon fiber, and a Dynel Tough Edge around the perimeter (which provides built in protection from damage to the blade).
