The Stand Up Paddle racing environment, especially in the last two years, has evolved a lot. Athletes are increasingly better prepared, they do specific training to improve the technique of paddling and go faster than ever, demanding boards that respond to their demands in the water. No stranger to these questions, the Fanatic
development team was working in collaboration with its top rider, the French Arthur Arutkin
, until obtaining a new range of race board
s that suits to the needs of all those SUPers who want a board that gives them the maximum performance in competition
In this way, the Austrian brand has created the new Blitz
model, and has completely redesigned the Falcon
and the Strike
models. The first is designed as an easy board that adapts to any water condition, the Falcon is the board for downwinds and hard conditions, and finally the Strike is the option for flat water. The latter is the one we analyzed in this week's post, because the 2019 model has been a complete metamorphosis of this board if we compare it with its predecessor, and implies an evolution in the concept of flatwater boards, which can be used in any condition, increasing the speed considerably, thanks to its renewed design.
