Updated with a new Length-Lock system. The Epic Kayak Small-Mid Wing paddle is a slightly trimmed-down version of their Mid Wing paddle. It is ideal for smaller paddlers or those paddling longer distances. This Hybrid paddle utilize a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass to give a good balance of weight and price.
There are several features that put Epic paddles above the rest. They use True Oval shafts that provide a better grip and greater strength. The new Length-Lock system is easy to tighten and open with a small lever that folds flat into a recessed area, making it impossible to over-tighten. The Length-Lock system allows precision length and angle adjustments. Length Lock also gives a solid dependable connection between shafts. Epic uses the best materials and the best paddle tested designs.
Kayak wing paddles have proven to be faster than conventional paddles time and time again. Because wing paddles provide lift like an airplane wing instead of drag on the rear face of the paddle, wing paddles give more speed and effeciency.
Hybrid shafts and blades help to reduce the weight to an incredible 1 pound 10 ounces. This is lighter than almost all one and two piece paddles.
The two piece Length Lock design allows you to adjust the paddle at any angle and adjust the length from 210 to 220 cm. This allows you to have a long paddle for use in wide kayak or a short paddle for use in a narrow kayak.
Green Hydrid shaft is Epic Kayaks most durable shaft, utilizing a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber.
If you are serious about being fast on the water then this is the paddle for you! Includes paddle cover.
