The Carbon strikes the right balance between performance and value. A carbon/glass fusion blade provides just the right balance between stiffness and flex, for efficient energy transference when cruising and increased balance in waves. Available in both vario and 3-piece options, this paddle is easy to transport and adjust on the fly. The anti-twist vario system features a single-notch system for perfect blade/handle alignment every time. Adding more durability to the design, all sizes 85 and above feature a thicker, stronger SDS shaft. The Hydro Seal fortifies the shaft exterior creating a watertight seal that enhances buoyancy—a helpful feature for newer paddlers.
