The right blend of value and functionality, the Performance, Performance Alana and Performance Jr. are the accessible choice for all-around use. The glass matrix blade construction provides ample strength making this paddle the lightest in its class for this value. Glass matrix in the shaft delivers heightened flex curve for more energy absorption and less impact on the shoulders. For younger athletes, this is especially advantageous in preventing injury and promoting physical longevity.
Available in both vario and 3-piece options, this paddle is easy to transport and adjust on the fly. The anti- twist vario system features a single-notch system for perfect blade/handle alignment every time. Adding more durability to the design all, sizes 85 and above feature a thicker, stronger SDS shaft. The Hydro Seal fortifies the shaft exterior creating a watertight seal that enhances buoyancy—a helpful feature for newer paddlers.
