Lightweight for long-distance wins.
When you’ve got a competitor’s bow right on your tail and 20 kilometres downstream to go until the finish line, you can’t afford your stroke rate to slow down. That’s why you need the Gara Odin-S Racing Paddle. Hand-crafted in South Africa by a top-tier brand that delivers first-place results, this agile paddle is used by event champions throughout the world.
Constructed from incredibly light carbon fibre, this paddle’s blades have a very low swing weight, keeping your strokes light and fast as you rip past the competition. A small sized teardrop blade shape delivers an early and smooth catch, a stable power phase, and a clean exit. Made from carbon fibre and fibreglass, the shaft features an ideal combination of rigidity and flexibility, while the split design enables on-the-go adjustments to length or feather. Whether you’re a strong beginner, or an advanced paddler competing in the Coast to Coast Race, this is the fastest paddle you could choose.
