The New Gearbox CX14E Elongated Paddle is longer in length, offering more reach, helping to create more spin with its narrow head. This paddle is ideal for players seeking stability & 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 Solid State Technology ribbed core. Solid carbon. No honeycomb. No dead spots.
The CX14 Elongated shape utilises Gearbox’s thicker 14mm stability profile.

SOLID SPAN TECHNOLOGY
Solid Span Technology (SST) is a patented technology invented by Gearbox engineers. 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 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 SST ribbed core and building out to the paddle face. Gearbox’s 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
Gearbox’s 14mm profiles are shaped to cut and glide through the air. The sleek aerodynamic edge design provides outstanding maneuverability, optimized spin and effortless play.
