Classic XTi Whitewater Three piece paddle - Carbon Polymer
Carbon Polymer Blades
Glass composite shaft
Robust Carbon polymer blades - hard wearing, 29mm OD shaft made from Glass composite white-water specification shafts.
The shape that revolutionised modern kayaking. Neil Baxter's original Kinetik designs have helped win a huge share of Olympic slalom medals. What works on the race course also works on the rest of the river:
Tip-heavy design creates rapid acceleration
Cut-away throat reduces boat-to-paddle contact for fewer missed moves.
Rapid loading of water on the face provides superior boat control, even in shallow water.
A smooth dihedral cross section reduces flutter.
The Classic XTi also features a reinforced cross-section for excellent durability, a tough polymer blade reinforced with Carbon fibres produces a durable, Whitewater blade.
While it is a versatile and powerful paddle for the river-runner with a vertical (slalom-style) stroke, all these benefits combine to make it the definitive paddle for steep creeks.
