Having the right sized paddle is very important, personal preferences are major factors when choosing the right paddle length.
“Size is Power. The longer the paddle is, the more power it produces. The shorter the paddle is, less power it generates”
Take a Short(210cm) paddle: Paddling more relaxingly.
Take a Regular(220cm) paddle: Balance of power and ease, our recommendation to most paddlers.
Take a Long(230cm) paddle: Paddling with more power and thrust.
Every model of Gearlab Greenland style paddle propels a kayak forward. Each is designed and built to excel in unique water conditions and for specific paddling purposes. Common Features of all three models are topped with Gearlab’s signature ProTek tips and patented D-Joint carbon fiber shaft. The paddles offer low wind resistance and less rotational wrist movement. They are also great for kayak rolling.
The Kalleq, constructed with seamless carbon fiber and premium materials, is the lightest and strongest paddle in Gearlab's line. It is positioned above Akiak and Malik. For detailed information, please check our product page for comparison. We make recommendations to each paddler according to their individual preferences and paddling style.
Unfortunately, we do not offer customization yet. We hear you. We are trying our best to launch this project in the future.
Step 1: Loosen the screw with a 2.5 mm hex wrench
Step 2: Pull out the used paddle tip
Step 3: Put on the new paddle tip
Step 4: Tighten the screw
*Screw will extrude on the other side when over tightened.
We suggest using Epoxy Base Glue (AKA AB glue), to attach ferrule to blades. Keep in mind to leave at least 7cm of overlap on each side when assembling ferrule to blade.
