XBlade - XBlade is a project I've done with Radim Tkadlec. It's a blade specifically designed to increase athlete's results in an olimpic kajak flatwater competition.The main idea behind XBlade is the adjustable joint that keeps the blade facing always the water flow so there's no energy waste. Other innovative features are the ergonomic handles avoiding uncorrect positions and the composite material (a carbonfiber shell filled with poliurethane) less weighting and more resistant.
