STABLE WITH A SOFT FEEL
The CX14 Elongated shape utilizes our thicker 14mm stability profile. The paddle is excellent for players coming to experience Gearbox’s SST Technology, from a lesser performing thick honeycomb paddle.
The New CX14 Elongated is longer in length offering more reach and helps create more spin with its more narrow head. This paddle is ideal for players seeking stability with reach. The paddle also features a longer handle to help accommodate a two-handed shot. It is excellent for players who enjoy the feel of a thicker honeycomb core paddle but want the durability and performance of Gearbox’s #1 SST ribbed core technology.
If you are looking for a hyper shape paddle thick core paddle, try the CX14 Hyper.

SOLID SPAN TECHNOLOGY
Solid Span Technology (ST) 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.
HYPER-BITE SPIN TECHNOLOGY
SPIN FROM THE CORE
This technology creates spin starting from the ST ribbed core and building out to the paddle face. Our patented ribbed core allows for maximum bite on the ball throughout the swing, further increasing the spin velocity of the ball. In addition to the 3K woven carbon fibre, a urethane coat and advanced texture is applied to the paddle face to boost spin.
ENHANCED SWEET SPOT
LARGER & MORE FORGIVING
To enhance the sweet spot and make it even larger, numerous 3K woven carbon fibre and T-700 carbon fibre plies have been repositioned to provide a more forgiving and smarter sweet spot. This improvement helps capture more shots and provide the performance you need.
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.
CARBON FIBER EDGELESS FRAME
STRONG & AERODYNAMIC
The paddle's entire edgeless perimeter has been reinforced with additional plies of 3K carbon fibre, with special attention to the two top corners, further improving the paddles overall strength, wear-resistance, and Gearbox's market-leading durability.

Wow, what à great paddle! I used to play with CRBN 1 (13mm) paddle for about a year and bought this paddle after I tried this one from a friend of mine. Simply the best I ever tried! Far more well balanced than my CRBN. Even if they have the same weight, the Gearbox feel more lighter than the CRBN with the same power, spin and with more control.
I’ve tried and bought many paddles over the years and this one is the best I’ve ever had.
This paddle for me has been great.
If I need power it is there and if I need a soft shot this paddle will do just that.
So happy that I purchased another paddle for my wife.
Tournaments here I come!
Loved the selection of equipment and the personnel service
Good for control, this is the right paddle for my topspin groundstroke. I can hit with high percentage and confident.
At 8.0oz the CX14E feels like 7.8oz.
