GLASS PRE PREG Blades
AINSWORTH have developed the `Snap Cure` manufacturing technique for Glass and Carbon pre preg materials. This dramatically reduces the processing time to make products from these high tech materials and so the Glass pre preg range of paddles with their inherent high performance characteristics can be offered at cost effectives prices that transform the affordability for High End paddles.
This construction offers the same strength as carbon pre preg paddles but with a little more weight & flexibility, which is sometimes a paddlers preference.
One Piece Carbon Shaft
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.
The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of SUP'ing 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.
