torque today. It's a brand name, but I am not advertising, but writing about a concept.
I was lake paddling casually, which is fine with this "low angle" carbon crank, when I encountered a head wind.
So, I tried reversing the paddle, meaning I put the extended paddle edge towards the canoe, rather than towards the outside, and used a high angle paddling stroke.
The result was remarkable, in that I had more paddling torque. I was able to handle that headwind much better than I would have with the "normal" paddling style.
Can this be explained?
