Blade Designs
Blade Dihedral-Kayak

Dihedral blade shape was created to direct water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke.

Asymmetrical Blade Shape

Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced stroke, reducing torque or twisting of the blade.

Carbon Reinforced - Injection Molded Nylon

Using recycled carbon with a mix of nylon, these blades are lighter than our fiberglass reinforced injection molded nylon blades.

With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke.
