IPIK is the lightest paddle Gearlab Outdoors has ever designed at under 600 grams. Thanks to the unique 3D wrapping construction offering the best strength-to-weight carbon fiber Greenland paddle on the market.
IPIK boasts an all new 3D carbon construction that intertwines the full paddle with continuous strands of aero grade carbon fiber. This results in superior strength, weight reduction, and a distinctive visual pyramid pattern.
The gently sloped transition between the loom and blade draws on a classic Inuit design to ensure quick hand-positioning, increased leverage, and intuitive paddle control.
The IPIK sports Gearlab’s first oval-shaped loom, enhancing paddle control and providing an ergonomic fit.
Sharp and Protected Blade
The 1.1mm sharp blade slices the water efficiently, while Gearlab’s patented third-generation replaceable ProTek tips protect IPIK from damage.
The innovative metal-free carbon spring joint design snaps securely together to ensure a flush, firm connection between the blades. The result is a paddle offering two-piece convenience and a streamlined, one-piece paddling experience.
Aerospace grade Titanium screws are used in all Gearlab paddles, ensuring that even the smallest element of a Gearlab paddle remains strong and rustproof.
All Gearlab paddles feature a two-piece design that separates quickly for convenient transportation and storage on the kayak deck. The low-profile carbon fiber button release creates a flush joint and sleek paddle shaft.
