The Stikine uses our most advanced technology in this river running paddle. Decades of testing on the river have led us to designs worthy of this paddles namesake. Combined with our Bomber construction for confidence for when the river fights back, it is no wonder it is the paddle trusted by the word’s best.
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.
Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced stroke, reducing torque or twisting of the blade.
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.
With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke.
Available in Small or Standard diameter. Dial in your fit for better control, more comfort and less fatigue. Ladies tend to like the feel of small shaft.
Built for the rigors of the whitewater environment, our fiberglass shafts have the highest level of strength.
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.
Easier travel or the ability to store under deck lines for Coastal Play. The center ferrule (Joint) is a traditional stainless steel button system. Choose from feather options of L45-0-R45 or L30-R45.
