Vaaka sensors – Performance Technology for Paddle Sports

What are we about?

At Vaaka we are all about providing real-time stroke rate data on the water and post training analysis of stroke rate and distance per stroke.

Our aim is to give you the technology you need to reach your peak performance.









It’s a rock solid little unit, providing great reliability, backed by a full warranty. The adoption of this simple technology has blown me away. From top Olympic level paddlers right through to recreational paddlers, the response has been terrific. I’m delighted to act as a representative for the brand in Australia and to have linked up with these innovative Kiwis.

Vaaka cadence sensors

Are lightweight, wireless, electronic sensors that provide real-time stroke rate feedback and distance per stroke analysis to athletes and coaches for Kayaking, Canoeing, Outrigger paddling, Dragonboating, Stand up Paddle Boarding and Rowing. Vaaka cadence sensors send stroke rate data wirelessly for display on ANT+ and Bluetooth compatible GPS devices. Stroke rate data is displayed on the compatible GPS device and logged alongside the GPS data, time, speed, heartrate and distance allowing more specific feedback during training and easy access to post training analysis of cadence and distance per stroke on our Vaaka Analytics software.

“You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” (Deming)

Because boat speed is a product of stroke rate and distance per stroke these are the two most important metrics to measure and manage for improved performance. Vaaka sensors allow athletes and coaches to see stroke rate data during training and the Vaaka Analytics software will automatically calculate distance per stroke for post training analysis making it possible to measure and monitor incremental improvements in performance.
