Grip Icon

Grip Indexed Ergo Bent Shaft
Our custom designed bent shafts feature an ergonomic shape with a grip indexed hand position. The grip indexed hand position feature is an ovalized non slip pattern moulded into the hand area. This custom feature reduces grip fatigue and indexes the shaft with the power face of the paddle. Our bent shafts are available in two sizes small and large. The smaller grip design is ideal for paddlers with smaller hands or wearing gloves.

Multi Component Blade Construction
A unique blade design, our Crystal X paddle uses a separate insert moulded central rib to provide enhanced stiffness to our transparent blades. H2O’s engineering expertise helps create a blade that is not only beautiful to look at but also performs like a full carbon paddle.

I Beam

"I" Beam Strength Pillar

A proprietary design incorporating an internal “ I ” beam reinforcement that runs the entire length of the blade and locks into the paddle shaft. The unique nature of this beam allows us to tune the feel of the blade and also allows the molding of a blade that is as light as composite while retaining the impact resistance of thermoplastic. Patent Pending ( Paton and Boggs, DC )
