Ainsworth SEA (Glass Pro Blade) Two Piece Carbon Adjustable
- Low Angle Range

Please note that this product is only available for collection from our shop in Belfast.

This low angled narrow blade with soft dihedral & fine edges glides smoothly through the water. The excellent buoyancy in the blades minimises the energy used for each stroke making it ideal for long-distance sea touring.

Right-Handed Paddle:  The majority of paddlers are taught to paddle right handed.  The difference bewteen a right handed & left handed paddle is the way in which the faces of blades are orientated in relation to one another.


Features:

  • Blade Shape
    • A  low angles, narrow blade design glides smoothly through the water, minimising the energy used for each stroke.
    • Thin blade asymetric: 50 x 15 cm
    • 640 cm 2
  • Glass Pro
    • GLASS PRE PREG Blades
    • AINSWORTH has developed the ` Snap Cure` manufacturing technique for Glass & Carbon prepreg materials. This dramatically reduces the processing time to make products from these high tech materials & so the Glass prepreg range of paddles with their inherent high-performance characteristics can be offered at cost-effective prices that transform the affordability for High-End paddles.
    • This construction offers the same strength as carbon prepreg paddles but with a little more weight & flexibility, which is sometimes a paddler preference.
  • Two-Piece Carbon Straight Shaft
    • The two-piece shaft is the same construction as the straight carbon shaft & split in the centre using a cam & lever which clamps onto a smaller diameter spigot made from the same shaft material.
    • The overall adjustment offers a 10 cm / 4 in telescopic extension along with a full range of feather angles both left & right-handed. A truly completely adjustable & simple system.
       
  • Length
    • Adjustable 215-220 cm / 84.65-86.61 in
    • The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height & the type of Kayaking, Canoeing or SUP’ing you'll be doing. Personal preference is also an important factor.
       
  • Right-Handed Paddle:
    • The majority of paddlers are taught to paddle right handed.  The difference bewteen a right handed & left handed paddle is the way in which the faces of blades are orientated in relation to one another.

Paddle Length Guide:

The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height & the type of Kayaking, Canoeing or SUP’ing you'll be doing. We have tried to help you with this by creating a paddle guide, this is a guide only & there are other points to consider:

  • Personal preference is also an important factor.
  • People with long back require longer paddles.
  • A longer paddle gives you more support & makes it easier to learn to roll.
  • A floaty blade such as the AFT Classic range gives more support & the paddler uses less energy.
  • Children require a shorter paddle
  • In general, the longer the kayak, the longer the paddle.
