Minimal weight, maximum performance.

Experience the satisfaction of speed on the water with the Gara Odin-River Wing Paddle. This hand-built paddle, crafted by world-class South African brand Gara Racing Paddles, is designed to enhance your performance whether you're an experienced multi-sport racer or a beginner paddler looking to make good time. With its lightweight construction and cutting-edge blade shape, this paddle is a joy to use for both training and racing.


  • Lightweight and Stiff Carbon-Fibre Blades: The super light and stiff carbon-fibre blades minimise swing-weight, allowing for free and fast strokes as you power downstream. Their world-class teardrop shape ensures an early and smooth catch, a stable power phase, and a clean exit.
  • Carbon-fibre and Fibreglass Shaft: The shaft, made from a combination of carbon-fibre and fibreglass, strikes the perfect balance between rigidity and flexibility. This optimal combination enhances your paddling performance and efficiency.
  • Split-Shaft Design: The innovative split-shaft design enables on-the-go adjustments to the length and feather of your paddle. This ensures a customisable fit and allows you to easily adapt to different racing conditions.
