Ultra-light and ultra-small for ultra-long-distance wins.
Whether you’re an experienced racer who loves those ultra-long distances, or a beginner who wants to make good time on the water, a small, lightweight paddle is an absolute must for you. Produced by a top-tier South African brand, the hand-built Gara Odin-XS Racing Wing Paddle will make any length of race that much easier to speed through.
Super light and stiff carbon fibre blades have a low swing weight, keeping your strokes free and fast as you rip downstream. A smaller-sized, teardrop blade shape delivers an early and smooth catch, a stable power phase, and a clean exit. Made from carbon fibre and fibreglass, the shaft features an ideal combination of rigidity and flexibility. The split-shaft design enables on-the-go adjustments to length or feather. The included, protective travel bag facilitates a safe transport experience, lengthening the life of the blades and keeping them performance-ready. If you’re an entry-level or smaller built paddler competing in the Coast to Coast Race, this is a great choice of paddle for you.
