Werner Ikelos 2-Piece Paddle - Carbon Blades/Bent Shaft - $474.95

The carbon-light, buoyant, mid-size blades and joint-friendly bent shaft on the Ikelos 2-Piece Paddle are ready to take on long-distance races and face-paced explorations. In fact, the Ikelos recently powered an explorer through a six-week tour in the arctic. A carbon weave and foam in the blades increases stroke efficiency and bracing, while the slight dihedral and ribless back smooth forward and sculling strokes. The Ikelos easily handles rough launches and landings, and the bent shaft naturally aligns your wrists for less fatigue and joint strain. - $474.95
