Performance Level
Ultimate

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.

Blade Designs
Blade Dihedral

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.

Dynel Edge

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.

Blade Shape
Low Angle

Low Angle is the most popular as it is more universal, primarily being more relaxed, but still allowing folks to paddle at a higher performance.

Shaft Features
Smart View Adjustable Ferrule System

Our Smart View adjustable ferrule system has the most precise, solid fit while maintaining a smooth one piece feel. Simple in design and operation, easily adjust to your desired feather with less moving parts. Better performance and longer lasting.

Standard and Small Diameter Shaft

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.
