The Aqua-Bound Shred Carbon is Aqua-Bound’s top of the line whitewater paddle. 100% Carbon shaft keeps the paddle lightweight, while maintaining durability and the ovalized aerospace-grade T-700 carbon shaft provides both power and agility. The abXII blades are reinforced with fibreglass for extra durability – A great choice for mid-range whitewater paddlers. We offer the Shred Carbon in 200 cm.
Note: All of our Aqua-Bound paddles should be taken apart to dry before storage to prevent binding of the nylon ferrules with the shafts. The ferrules are designed with ridges to be lightly sanded if the fit becomes too tight.
