SUP (Poly Carb) Two Piece Glass Telescopic
STAND UP PADDLES
Ainsworth uses a super tough PolyCarbonate composite injection moulded construction for superb durability and performance to give a strong, all-round paddle. Launched in 2014, the material strength is over double the strength of the nylon 12 used in many other nylon paddles at this price point. Ainsworths PolyCarbonate blade is much stiffer than other nylon paddles. The shaft is pressed into the blades with hydraulic pressure to a depth of 10cm, ensuring a watertight joint and a continuous feel from shaft to blade tip. The high strength of the material means that the blade can be made lighter than other paddles that use a Nylon construction.
Two-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 a padders choice and has a cost-saving over a carbon shaft.
The two-piece shaft is the same construction as the straight glass 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 10cm telescopic extension along with a full range of feather angles both left and right-handed. A truly completely adjustable and simple system.
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.
Ainsworth takes pride in creating the strongest, lightest and most durable paddles on the market. Ainsworth is very confident in the performance of its paddles and offers a one year warranty.
The warranty applies from the date of purchase and is restricted to the original purchaser. It covers defects in materials and craftsmanship under normal use. Note that the warranty does not cover edge wear.
