Ikelos Carbon Straight Shaft Two-Piece Kayak Paddle

The surface area of the Ikelos provides a tremendous amount of on demand power for quick bursts of speed. The ability to enact change quickly with this paddle make it ideal for dynamic conditions. I also enjoy the buoyancy the foam core provides when bracing, rolling or when paddling in “frothy” locals! Forrest W.

The carbon-light, buoyant, full-size blades on the Ikelos Two Piece Sea Kayak Paddle are ready to take on long-distance races and face-paced explorations. In fact, the Ikelos recently powered an explorer through a six-week tour in the arctic. A carbon weave and foam core in the blades increases stroke efficiency and bracing, while the slight dihedral and ribless back smooth forward and sculling strokes. 

You’ll feel exceptionally light, buoyant strokes while the smooth back face gives a quiet entrance and exit from the water. The award winning Ikelos is the smart choice for those playing or cruising with a high-angle style of paddling and wanting the powerful feel of a full-sized blade.

High Angle

High Angle

High angle paddle blades are typically shorter and wider and meant to be inserted into the water closer to perpendicular in relation to the surface of the water. The Blade enters the water sooner, providing more power to quickly enact change to the kayak when needed while keeping the blade in close to the side of your boat and tracking straighter. High angle paddling will take a bit more energy to use, however, making them more suited for dynamic paddling situations.

Straight Shaft

Straight Shaft

Straight shaft kayak paddles are the most common choice among paddlers and are ideal for those that like a traditional, simple feel. Straight paddles will save weight and cost while allowing for more variety in hand position.
