Blade                 
These paddles feature AFT - Advanced Foam Technology - blades. These are made using a unique polyurethane foam construction to produce a paddle which is tough but is also light and floaty. The superb buoyancy in the light-weight blade makes it a sheer delight to use – it’s excellent for support strokes and, with maximum efficiency in each stroke, saves the paddler energy over long distances.
 
Shaft                  
This paddle is available with the following shaft options:
Straight Titanium Enriched Alloy Shaft:
Corrosion resistant alloy specially selected for paddling use.

Straight Carbon Shaft
Made with Ainsworth filament wound technology - significantly lighter than other shafts on the market. This shaft comes Our standard grip which is a shrink PVC coating, and all paddles include an index on the control side to give positive blade positioning - especially helpful when setting up for a roll.
 
Length                
The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of kayaking 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.
