ALL ROUND Classic K100 (AFT) One Piece Glass
The ALL ROUND is a powerful symmetrical paddle, with all the design features of the classic All Round blade ( the original K100). It has a spooned blade and stabilising dihedral. This paddle is for the average to larger sized kayaker designed as a general-purpose kayak paddle. Great for touring kayaks, sit on tops and other general-purpose uses. This blade shape is very popular with centres, schools and clubs.
AFT (Advanced Foam Technology)
blades are made using a unique polyurethane high-pressure structural foam construction. This produces a paddle which is tough, lightweight and floaty. The low density is similar to that of a wooden paddle and so can offer the paddler much the same feel but with durability that exceeds the best plastic blades.
One Piece Glass Straight Shaft
Ainsworth offers a Glass fibre prepreg composite shaft that has more flex than a carbon shaft but still with the warm feel of a composite material. This shaft is often favoured by touring paddlers to lessen the impact of a stiff shaft on longer journeys. When this shaft is used in its shorter format on a whitewater paddle, it is still stiff enough to deliver the power and yet give a degree of flex that some paddlers prefer. This shaft is a padders choice and has a cost-saving over a carbon shaft.
The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of canoeing you'll be doing. We have tried to help you with this by creating a paddle guide, this is a guide only: personal preference is also an important factor.
