FULL CARBON PADDLE
THE CARBON PRO IS EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT AND RIGID
Featuring 100% 3K Pre-preg Carbon throughout the blade and a fixed shaft, the Carbon Pro is extremely lightweight and rigid.
FULL CARBON PADDLE
Produced in a compression molded production process, the result of a super light and incredibly strong paddle. The fixed shaft and stiffness result in a direct transfer of power, allowing riders to take full advantage of the force and drive exerted with each stroke—an attribute expected from a high-performance paddle of this nature.
The Carbon Pro is versatile, and top performance is standard in different disciplines from racing, to precision wave riding, to touring.
Embedded inside the Blade is an ABS Rail, which functions as a built-in blade edge protection, for added longevity of your paddle.
