Carbon Speedster 86 Weight

With just 450 grams, these are our lightest full-diameter paddles. The RDM version of this paddle weighs 10 grams less, and the 81 version, with its smaller blade, weighs 15 grams less. So using the RDM version with the smaller blade means your paddle weighs 425 grams.




Additional Information

NSP paddles come with a standard diameter of 29 mm, 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 29 mm version, the 26 mm shaft is perfect for kids, women, or athletes with smaller hands.

When handling carbon high-performance products like the Carbon Speedster 86, 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 meet the program criteria and are all USDA Certified Bio-based Products.
