Ainsworth CARBON PRO SUP PADDLE (BLACK)
This SUP paddle features our teardrop shape blade face with a medium-sized surface area. This paddle is for everyone from the smaller sized to larger sized SUPer, our SUP paddles are made from the same materials as our kayak and canoe paddles, this means they are lightweight, strong and durable. This paddle is for the experienced SUP'er, suitable for Touring, Racing, Surfing and running White Water. These blades are made from Glass or Carbon prepregs. and are both lightweight and strong.
CARBON PRE PREG Blades: Beautiful, super light and really strong.
A brand new range of high quality, performance paddles. The new `Superlight` Prepreg blades offer top-class performance and feel. With a high gloss finish, the Carbon Prepreg paddles inherit the strength, endurance and a full years warranty for which AINSWORTH is renowned.
The new Carbon Prepreg blades achieve their performance through a high tech manufacturing process that pre-impregnates Epoxy resin through Carbon fibres at immense pressures at up to 65% carbon to resin content. Paddles made in this process can offer dramatic weight saving and produce a paddle blade where the edge wear is vastly superior to conventional wet lay-up processes which rarely achieve 40% carbon to resin content.
The increased strength of the structure pushes the boundaries of paddle design and so these new paddles can have up to 10 deg. kick back which not only advances the `catch` but drains quicker and assist rolling.
This really is the next generation in paddle development.
Two-Piece Carbon Straight Shaft
The two-piece shaft is the same construction as the straight carbon shaft and split in the centre using a cam and lever which clamps onto a smaller diameter spigot made from the same shaft material.
The overall adjustment offers a 10cm telescopic extension along with a full range of feather angles both left and right-handed. A truly completely adjustable and simple system.
The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of canoeing you'll be doing. We have tried to help you with this by creating a paddle guide, this is a guide only: personal preference is also an important factor.
