C1 blades strong enough to stand up to some serious abuse.
Welcome to our new expanded range of C1 and rafting paddles, now available in a range of styles, constructions and colour options.
All of our blades boast an integral dynel tip for improved abrasion resistance, and are one-part molded onto a straight skypole shaft as standard. Our standard shafts are a carbon-glass mix, or you can upgrade to one of the same bombproof shafts that we use for our guidesticks, and we have yet to see a broken one!
Our blades come complete with our hand-made maple T-grips, covered with glass and dynel reinforcement. These can be supplied pre-assembled to your choice of length.
As always at Shaggy Designs, these blades can be customised to your individual requirements with different layups, colours, etc.
Blade Construction - we have 4 options available (except for the foamcore construction), depending upon your style of paddling and preference;
- Standard - A good general purpose blade, surfaced with abrasion resistant S-glass, weighs approximately 800g.
- Heavy Duty - Additional layers give a blade that will take a bashing on shallow runs or for heavy-duty padddlers. Weight approximately 850g.
- Carbon - Upgrade one of the glass layers in the standard construction to carbon for increased stiffness, weighs approximately 800g.
- Race Carbon - A lighter version, with all the glass replaced by carbon for a very responsive light blade. Weight approximately 750g.
Colours - the Standard and Heavy Duty constructions are always supplied coloured, and the Carbon construction can be coloured upon request. Our standard range of colours are; Black, White, Red, Navy Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, Purple, Pink and we will do our best to mix any other colour to order.
Shaft Options - our standard is a skypole carbon-glass shaft. Also available is a top-of the line all-carbon skypole shaft. for those paddlers that prefer a crank, we are also offering our blades on a Galasport carbon double torque C1 shaft. The Skypole shafts can be made into breakdown paddles upon request as well.
