NEW! GearBox CX14E ULTIMATE (Elongated Shape)
It is about 8 grams heavier that the same 14 elongated. It makes a difference if you’re aiming for power. I prefer the lightest model for finesse play.
So freaking good. I’ve tried so many paddles. This is by far the most consistent. Such a nice balance between power and control, great grip. Love it.

SOLID SPAN TECHNOLOGY
Solid Span Technology (SST) is a patented technology invented by Gearbox engineers. The goal: to create the most innovative paddle in pickleball that you can rely on. SST describes an advanced proprietary molding process using a blend of high strength carbon fibre materials to form a ribbed core and one-piece construction. The carbon fibre material is meticulously hand-laid and then rolled to create the only patented ribbed core in all of pickleball. The paddle's core, face and perimeter are constructed with hundreds of plies of 3K woven carbon fibre and T-700 carbon fibre material. SST has introduced the strongest #1 performing ribbed core paddle in the pickleball industry.
3K WOVEN CARBON FIBER
REMARKABLE FEEL & CONSISTENCY
The CX Collections have been crafted with 3K woven carbon fibre on both the face and perimeter of the paddle, unlocking a premium feel and sound, a larger sweet spot, greater spin, added torsion control, and more durability. This new material also helps to reduce vibration back to the hand and gives the paddle ace more consistency from the centre of the face to the edge.
NEW POWER BAND TECHNOLOGY
Pushing the limits of creativity and ingenuity, Gearbox has engineered Power Band Technology. With the Power Band, the paddle's patented SSTcore is detached and suspended from the perimeter of the paddle giving the paddle surface a trampoline effect. The band around the edge is a flex zone, allowing for movement and spring off the paddle face. The Power Band gives this paddle a solid, controlled feel with tremendous effortless power.
NEW IMPROVED HYPER-BITE 2.0 SPIN TECHNOLOGY
SPIN FROM THE CORE
This technology creates spin starting from the paddles inner patented ribbed SSTcore to the paddle face. Hyperbite 2.0 describes a system where various components come together which include the patented ribbed 2.0 SSTcore, the 3K woven carbon fibre outer face ply, a top urethane face coat and now a top textured face coat- all to give maximum bite and grip on the ball for incredible spin.
NEW MAGNIFIED SWEET SPOT
LARGER & MORE FORGIVING
The Ultimate Power's sweet spot performance has been magnified via its Power Band Technology, it now has improved consistency forgiveness, touch and power. The power can be revved up on demand to help drive the ball while maintaining its touch performance for dinks.
STABLE & MANEUVERABLE
Our 14mm profiles are shaped to cut and glide through the air. Our sleek aerodynamic edge design provides outstanding maneuverability, optimized spin and effortless play.
NEW UPGRADED EDGELESS FRAME
STRONG & AERODYNAMIC
The Ultimate Power's edgeless frame has been upgraded in two ways: by pushing out more material to the outer edges and by adding more plys of carbon fibre to the edge. This gives the Ultimate Power collection improved perimeter weighting, stability with off-centre shots and more power.
