Ke Nalu 8.5" MALIKO 95 BLADE AND XTUF SHAFT
8.5" MALIKO BLADE AND XTUF SHAFT
While xTufs are heavier than our Elite paddles, at 495 to 565 grams, they are still among the lightest paddles available. Most paddles in this price range weigh twice as much. The xTuf Blades are reinforced, high-quality fiberglass and the shafts are unidirectional carbon fiber (63" long). Fiberglass is not as stiff and strong as carbon fiber, but it handles impacts and hard use much better. So if you're surfing in shorebreak, or rocky areas, or you're whitewater paddling, the xTuf is a great choice for you.
Maliko Blade is 8.5" x 16" and 95 sq. inches, total paddle weighs 555 grams.
