Along with the light weight and superior design, the Ke Nalu paddles feature an exclusive option found no where else:
The ability to change components with nothing other than a hair dryer! The shaft ends, handle and blade have all been engineered to be sealed into place with hot glue, not only is this strong and water-tight but allows a change to another blade size or hand grip in just a few minutes. Height adjustments and fine-tuning are now a quick, simple process.
The paddles are available in Elite & xTuf construction made from reinforced fiberglass, or full carbon, The weight difference is only a few ounces, and the xTuf is still a very lightweight paddle while carbon fiber is stronger and more rigid, high-density fiberglass withstands impact better, which can be a benefit around rocks.
