Our singular new new canoe paddle is the result of many years development. It’s unique characteristic is in the changing of the mating of blade to shaft.
By positioning the plane of the blade behind the centre line of the shaft, the paddle becomes more stable right from the “catch” throughout the stroke, compared to the more traditional format.
As clearly visible from the picture, the front plane of the blade follows the “rear plane “ of the shaft, thus forming the letter Z. Hence the term Canoe Z

Our adjustable shafts using “shakle” type clips
New design for our adjustable system as well. The quality is in it’s simplicity; using an “off centre”, stainless steel clamp. The whole fastening system is manufactured in conjunction with the shaft, using carbon prepreg. Do not use other materials, keeping to the simplest of solutions, making it extremely reliable, tool free system. The shaft and clamp contact areas have high friction qualities, to produce high clamping force, at low physical effort. All of our paddles can be ordered with adjustable shafts.
Paddle Maintainance !!!
In the case of fresh water use; dismantle paddle once a week-in case of salt water after each use- and clean shaft contact areas using soap and water. Paddles should be stored in a dismantled for prolonged periods, ie winter.
