The Flyte has an aggressive catch, which rewards starting the stroke further forward but with a more gradual taper towards the neck the blade feels smoother in the later parts of the stroke. This shape has slalom inspired design DNA to its core.

This blade is made from 100% carbon fibre which is pre-impregnated with toughened epoxy resin making it extremely strong, robust and hard-wearing.

Supplied as standard with a ground carbon shaft its stiffer and lighter than our glass shaft for when reaction times really matter. If your looking for a shaft with more flex choose the glass version.

This paddle can be factory fitted with a glass fibre split adjustable joint. With a low profile locking lever, you can change your length and feather on the go. 360 degree adjustable with markings for 90° feather adjustment (10 cm of length adjustment).

2-piece splits are ideal for fitting in the car and the rear of larger volume kayaks for use as an emergency paddle.

The split joint is strong and robust, requires no tools and can be easily operated from inside the kayak.

Every set of VE Paddles is made in Britain, by hand, at our factory in Clevedon. We take care at each step so you can rely on VE as your connection to the water. VE paddles are made using pre-preg carbon and fibreglass materials and compression moulded construction techniques. Blades are fitted onto proprietary carbon or glass shafts; in straight, crank and split versions. All VE Paddles are assembled to a strict process, to ensure a quality finished product. VE Paddles come in a wide range of configurations. We offer popular models in standard lengths, angles and shaft types, plus the chance to customise for your style. The product descriptions and paddle length charts will help guide your choice, but if you want advice on what will work best for you, please get in contact with us. We aim to deliver within 30 working days of receiving your order, although custom orders may take a little longer. If you have a broken or damaged paddle, we can often repair or replace it to get you back on the water. VE paddles come with a 24-month warranty against manufacturing defects.
