A touring canoe blade suited to paddling for longer periods where not every stroke is vertical.

The smaller blade area compared to the Pro Canoe the round edges help knifing and other control strokes. The Aircore Offside comes with our ergo grip as standard or supplied seperatly in the case of an uncut version.

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.

Fitted with our own carbon ergo grip, its exceptionally lightweight with a full carbon classic palm shape. It will provide comfort and control for all day paddling.

A two piece splits option is available for those paddlers needing a bit more flexibility with regard to length.
