Speedster 81 RDM – 100% Carbon

The 100% Carbon Speedster 81 RDM (reduced-diameter) is a paddle shaft (26mm) designed for paddlers wanting a shaft that fits their style or physique. Paddlers clutching with their digits, kids and women are stoked on having a high-performance paddle with a reduced-diameter shaft.

Help your paddling to RDM
Proper paddling should be effortless, so if you feel your paddling is strained at times, an RDM shaft in combination with your preferred blade may be a real game-changer. In the long run, the paddle that best suits your style of paddling will help you maintain a solid frequency and cover more distance than you’d manage with a paddle that works against you.

So, if you have the opportunity to attend a demo or try out an RDM shaft at your local paddleboard shop, we recommend you give it a go – you may just take your paddling to the next level!

Regular or Reduced Diameter Shaft

NSP paddles come with a standard diameter of 29mm, which we have found to be the perfect fit for most paddlers, by a very large margin. These standard diameter paddles will work in all paddling conditions that you can participate in.

We recognize that a select group of paddlers prefers a reduced diameter though, which is why we created the Carbon Speedster Fixed 81 RDM (Reduced Diameter). Designed with the same strength- and flexing characteristics as the 29mm version, the 26mm shaft is perfect for kids, women or athletes with smaller hands.
