The traditional paddle style has been maintained, however, the blade tips have been flattened to give an easy, efficient entry to the water. You may wish to see notes from the paddle designer with this link.

Paddle profile

Kevlar and Carbon tip

These traditional style kayak paddles are made to a traditional shape, but it is the method of manufacture that makes it very unusual and super strong. Instead of making in a mould with pre-preg carbon or foam filled as most manufactures do, the BQ Sport paddles are made with a balsa centre.

The paddle blade is shaped in high grade Balsa wood by Arash, drawing on skills learned as a classical guitar maker. The carbon fibre and kevlar tips are then laminated over the blade using a special technique.

This technique ensures the epoxy resin infuses into the surface of the balsa wood making an incredibly strong blade. We estimate this method is up to 10 times stronger than hollow or foam filled blades.

The are a number of other processes to follow that ensure you have a beautifully smooth blade. The shaft, which is manufactured in-house, is also added during this process. If you select a 2 piece paddle an excellent joiner, which we source in Europe, will be installed.
