Oliver Rio Wave – Blue

$150.00

Availability: 1 in stock

Paddle Surface:

This Fiberglass surface packs more of a punch or “pop” than a Carbon surface.

Core:

The Rio Wave has a Polypropylene honeycomb core which is sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass that offer both control and power. This is a strong but flexible lightweight material that provides optimal mechanical performance in composite sandwich structures. This composite is widely used on aircraft flight control surfaces such as the rudder, aileron, spoiler and flap. The core thickness is 13mm which is a mid-range core thickness that offers both the control of a thicker paddle and power of a thinner paddle.

Handle Length:

If you are not a tennis player who likes to use two hands on your back hand shot, you don’t require a long handle and it shouldn’t be regarded when choosing a paddle. If you like to have a finger on the paddle (similar to a table tennis paddle) then this handle length is perfect for you.

The Grip:

Our standard grip is 110mm circumference, however we suggest using an overgrip or double grip if you require more cushioning.  The additional cushioning is helpful in absorbing some of the impact if you suffer joint pain such as arthritis or tennis elbow. It is also proven to reduce arm muscle fatigue.

Weight:

The Rio Wave is a midweight paddle which is a perfect combination of paddle speed and power.  Midweight paddles are recommended as an alternative to a heavier paddle if you suffer any elbow or joint pain.

Face Width:

The Rio Wave has a width of 200mm which is a medium size paddle.

These paddles are USA Pickleball Association approved.
