Designed from the ground up specific for down river and creek race, in collaboration between our engineers and some of the best racers in the world. As race courses are more commonly set on harder and harder runs, we want to assure that going fast didn’t have to mean worrying about your paddle. The Odachi brings our Bomber reputation to the race paddler.
Our Ultimate Performance brings together all of our most advanced designs. Paddles that offer Ultimate Performance have an exceptionally light, buoyant and quiet feel on the water.
Dihedral blade shape was created to direct water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke.
A combination of the volume of our proprietary foam core, fiberglass, carbon, Kevlar along with dynel edges are impact and abrasion resistant with bomber strength.
Dynel is an extremely abrasion and impact resistant edge material. Key to protecting your investment if you come in contact with rocks or reef often in your paddling.
To develop our Odachi whitewater race blade shape we started from scratch on R&D and worked with some of the best paddlers in the world for feedback. What you get is more powerful, more stable, fast forward strokes.
Align your wrists in a more ergonomic position; reduce fatigue gain the confidence of full hand contact. Neutral Bent means blade, ferrule and grip in a straight line for a familiar feel of a straight shaft.
Developed with the right amount of flex, our carbon bent shafts are handcrafted with pride and focus.
Optimized for flex, strength and light weight. Look to the all carbon straight and bent shafts on our Odachi.
