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.
This is a unique process developed only by AINSWORTH PADDLES.
Three Piece Carbon Shaft Adjustable Telescopic
AINSWORTH use a carbon composite pre preg shaft with a percentage of bi-axial glass that increases the UTS ( ultimate tensile strength) of the shaft. Glass has 3-5 times the elongation at break as carbon, and when laminated with the stiffer carbon material the best of both materials combine to make the ideal construction for paddle shafts.
Three piece shaft are the same construction as the straight carbon shaft, and split in the centre using a cam and lever which clamps onto a smaller diameter spigot made from the same shaft material.
The overall adjustment offers a 76 - 86 ins telescopic extension along with a full range of feather angles both left and right handed. A truly completely adjustable and simple system.
