One of the most advanced techniques for making composite components is by using prepreg carbon fiber reinforcement, cured under heat and pressure to produce professional quality parts with a high quality surface finish, low resin content and excellent structural performance.

– All our blades are made using the Autoclave oven, cured at 120°, with a pressure of 6 bar. The best in terms of carbon fiber compaction and durability.
– Pre preg Twill Carbon 200 grams/m2 layers 45/45 degree for the torsions and impact resistence
– Pre preg UD Carbon 150 grams/m2 layers 0 degree for the flex characteristic
– ABS rail insert along the edge of the blade
– Pre Preg internal tube reinforcement in the shaft/blade connection area, to eliminate any extra flex and breakages.
– High expansion resin system core
– Handcrafted in Italy

Making the most innovative windsurfing masts since 2004, the Reptile Sup shaft is the natural evolution of what is the best in terms of lightness, durability and reflex.

Three words to describe the unique Reptile Shaft Reflex Technology.

LIGHTNESS
It’s easy to achieve this result if the best Pre preg UD and fabrics Carbon fibers meet an accurate Autoclave oven production process. The Reptile Shaft is one of the lightest shaft in the world. End of story.

DURABILITY
The worst enemies of a carbon composite product are the air bubbles between the fibers and the lack of the epoxy resin that couldn’t cover the carbon fibers. In both of that cases, we will have a breakage.
With the Autoclave production process, all the Pre Preg Carbon fibers are perfectly compressed under a 6 bar pressure, and the epoxy resin system can cover the entire surface of the product.

REFLEX

Immagine-Fixed-Technology
Many brands created different shaft stiffness, as paddlers could find the most suitable for their style and characteristics. This is a very good idea.
But, if you go deeper in the composites field, you will find that the epoxy resins and the carbon fibers ( which constitute the Prepreg carbon) are subject to a plus/minus 5% tolerance. This tolerance affects the weight and of course the flex of the product. It’s natural, it’s a composite characteristic.
So when a brand advertize that can create different shaft stiffness, it’s a TRUE story. When the numbers of the different stiffness are too close to each other, it’s a FALSE story, as the tolerance can cover and exceed those numbers.
Reptile developed two Flex Options to maximize your performance:
– MEDIUM STIFFNESS ( S39), for more direct transfer of energy and 75/90 kgs riders
– SOFT STIFFNESS ( S41), for a more gentle transfer of energy and 55/75 kg riders
The stiffness is measured by applying 30kg in the center of the shaft, supported at 100cm distance to measure the deflection in mm.

SHAFT GRIP 
Coming from the windsurfing masts experience, the entire shaft has a Matt finish that ensures a prime control. In addition, the shrink tape releases on the shaft a unique “round filament” that helps the hands to get more grip during the sprint.

Precise, light, strong.

With the incredible Inflatable SUP’s success, the 3 pieces adjustable paddle is something that a SUP traveler can’t miss in his bag.
