One shaft, many blades

Our innovative ‘switchblade’ paddle system lets you build up a range of blades for different conditions, without filling up your garage with multiple paddles.  You can even mix and match – Fibre glass shaft with carbon surf blade anyone?  Or how about stiffening up your whitewater nylon paddle with a stiffer carbon blade?

Switchblade can even be used just blade and handle, to shorten the length of the paddle – for comfortable canoe style paddling, or to make it the right height for kids. You can even use it with two blades for kayak style paddling.

Description

Choose your shaft

Fibreglass or carbon?  Carbon is stiffer, lighter and more expensive. Fibreglass is cheaper, less easily damaged, and a little more forgiving of poor paddle technique

Choose your blade

With an ever expanding range of blades, shaft thicknesses and handles to choose from, this is the ultimate pick and mix!
