Who is the 100% Carbon Speedster 86 RDM for
NSP paddles usually 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. By creating the RDM version of the Speedster, NSP recognizes that a select group of paddlers prefers a reduced diameter though.
When handling carbon high-performance products like the 100% Carbon Speedster 86 RDM, NSP recommends the use of appropriately padded bags.
How to cut a carbon paddle
Finding out the perfect length and cutting your high-performance carbon fiber paddle shaft to length can be slightly daunting the first time, which is why we created an extensive blog for paddlers looking to learn more about cutting and gluing their paddle themselves. We also edited a basic video you can watch from your phone.

Built with bio-based polymers
All composite paddles by NSP are baked after a bio-based polymer is applied. Supplied by Entropy Resins, we are aware that even bio-based epoxy impacts the environment. But replacing petroleum-based materials with renewable plant-based resources is a good move, recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Entropy Resins products meet the program criteria and are all USDA Certified Bio-based Products.
