Material: High modulus carbon. More lightweight and solid. Matte finish carbon blade.
Process: The waka ama (Va’a) paddle is made by hand laying-up, with PMI foam inside, shaped by CNC machine. This process allows us to perfect the weight, size, and blade thickness.
1-Piece: We use higher process difficulty to keep in one piece between the shaft and handle. No gap junction. More aesthetic and solid.
Optimum Angle: 12°between the blade and shaft helps you save energy. And the blade with reverse waterline is suitable for open water cruising flat water cruising and long paddling distances.
Shaft:Prepreg high modulus carbon shaped shaft and handle. More efficient. Upper bent shaft allows the blade to keep vertical for a longer portion of the stroke. It makes available power be greatest and moves more water with less effort.
Ergonomic: T-handle, oval shaft grip part and antiskid grip wrap make it easier to grasp and maximize your strength during paddling.
Blade: Reinforced classical blade edge with carbon filament and thickened carbon fiber on the joint between shaft and blade. More resistant to collisions. Added two profiled rails on the blade edges. This gives the best grip and an extreme power to each stroke.
