A narrow, asymmetric, spooned teardrop profile Nylon blade that gives a dry, efficient paddle. An ideal paddle and popular entry level choice especially for centres and clubs.

• Nylon-glassfibre composite blade material.
• Weight 1150g
• One piece alloy shaft with index grip and drip rings.
• One piece glass/epoxy shaft.
• One piece straight carbon shaft.
• One piece carbon/alloy crank shaft with ergo foam grip that moulds to the hand for optimum comfort and stability.
• One piece carbon/alloy crank shaft with sharkskin grip for maximum grip on the paddle even when wet.
• 4 part split option.
• Choice of standard, X-grip or ergo foam grips.



This paddle is available with the following grip options:
• standard grip. Our standard grip is a shrink PVC coating, and all paddles include an index on the control side to give positive blade positioning - especially helpful when setting up for a roll.

• X-grip for maximum control. High-tech and light-weight, X-grip has the positive feel of a textured grip, but allows air under the hand to prevent burning in heavy use. Ideal for whitewater. Click thumbnail image right for larger picture (also available with all straight shaft options).

• ergo foam grip for maximum comfort. With the elasticity to mould to the hand, this grip provides a stable base on which to pull, especially suited to touring and sea paddles. Click thumbnail image right for larger picture (also available with all straight shaft options).



This paddle is available with the following shaft options:
straight titanium enriched alloy shaft: corrosion resistant alloy specially selected for paddling use.

• straight glass/epoxy prepreg shaft: made with Ainsworth filament wound technology - 30% more strength for the same weight.

• straight carbon shaft: made with Ainsworth filament wound technology - significantly lighter than our glass/epoxy shafts. Click thumbnail image right to see a larger picture.

• cranked carbon/alloy shaft: lightweight and strong cranked carbon composite shaft with integral sculpted index grip for greater comfort and a more positive feel. Click thumbnail image right to see a larger picture.

• four part split: glassfibre shaft with multi–angle, salt water resistant fittings. Complete with tough carry bag. Click thumbnail image right to see a larger picture.



Blade:
Ainsworth use a tough nylon-glassfibre composite construction for superb durability and performance to give a strong, ‘all round’ paddle. Launched in 2006, the material yields 260 Mpa tensile strength - that’s over double the strength of the nylon 12 used in many other nylon paddles. Ainsworth’s Nylon blade is much stiffer than any other nylon paddles. The shaft is pressed into the blades with hydraulic pressure to a depth of 10cm, ensuring a watertight joint and a continuous feel from shaft to blade tip. The high strength of the material means that the blade can be made lighter.
