Performance Level
Premium

Paddles that offer Premium Performance give you the right combination of light weight, stiffness, and durability. Whether you choose our Fiberglass or Carbon laminated blades, these are our most impact resistant paddles.

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 forward stroke by reducing the flutter on each stroke.

Premium - Carbon

Our most impact and abrasion resistant blades, with carbon construction are known for stiffness and light weight.

Blade Shape
River Running

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

Shaft Features
Neutral Bent Shaft

Align your wrists in a more ergonomic position to reduce your fatigue and gain the confidence of full hand contact. Our Neutral Bent Shaft is designed so the blade, ferrule, and grip are in a straight line for the familiar feel of a straight shaft.

Standard and Small Diameter Shaft

Available in Small or Standard diameter. Dial in your fit for better control, more comfort and less fatigue. Smaller built paddlers tend to like the feel of small shaft.
