On the banks of the Salmon River in 1993, a couple of whitewater paddlers and dreamers developed the idea of the first ergonomic kayak paddle. Our shafts have long remained the foundation of our performance paddles, and since we've introduced groundbreaking concepts such as rock-solid Unibody Construction, fatigue-fighting Full Control Grip, and the incredibly strong Duraweave® with Innegra™.
Does just one stroke type well? Each of our blade shapes feature the perfect amount of spoon and curve for a balanced, forgiving performance across all conditions and stroke types. In addition, our blades feature a powerful back face for any situation that calls for a stroke initiated off the back side such as surfing, freestyle moves, or ruddering.
The flexibility and weight of a paddle are a result of many variables combined throughout the manufacturing process. To keep things simple, a summary of the fibers and blade characteristics can be found here.
Our new adjustable ferrule system is designed for unlimited feathering and adjustable length.
