Savvy bow paddlers have long known about the mile-eating efficiency of bent shafts for touring. But only recently have they started treating themselves to the ultralight carbon fibre incarnations of bent shaft paddles.
Performance, marathon, and outrigger paddlers have long since embraced these high-tech materials. Now, the Raven will delight racers and recreationalists alike with its lightness, strength, and efficiency.
- Carbon fibre foam-core composite construction.
- 12-degree bent shaft.
- 9in. knife-edge dihedral blade for clean entry and exit.
- One size can be cut to length.
