A Powerful River Running blade, with a classic river running asymmetric blade shape for more power. This paddle is for the average sized kayaker designed to give power when it matters. These blades are made from Carbon RTM and are both lightweight and strong.
PRE-PREG CARBON Blades : Beautiful, super light and really strong.
A brand new range of high quality, performance paddles. The new `Superlight` Pre-Preg blades offer top class performance and feel. With a high gloss finish the Carbon Pre-Preg paddles inherit the strength, endurance and a full years warranty for which AINSWORTH is renowned.
The new Carbon Pre-Preg 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.
