IDEAL FOR

Those looking for a high performance paddle with all the high-tech materials & design for the best possible value. Paddlers wanting a versatile blade shape capable in any conditions on any day.

Evo Carbon Highlights

A light and powerful 3-piece paddle with a heavy-duty travel case. Made with 12K pre-preg carbon with more than seven layers used to make the complex blade shape.

The Evolution Carbon paddle is a versatile paddle combining skilled craftsmanship, premium materials, and performance. The modern blade shape combines the control and predictability of a tear-drop-shaped paddle with the power generated by a square blade and now includes our precision Hex joint system that replaces the lower clamp.

The double dihedral blade profile is built around a high density PVC core, which creates this paddle's source of power and control. The dihedral shape on the back-side makes every blade stroke smooth and controlled without any feathering through the water—an essential feature for beginners and expert paddlers alike. The second dihedral profile on the front side provides the blades rigidity and transfers every ounce of power from the paddler to forward motion.

From our Evolution series, the Evolution Carbon paddle is constructed using aerospace grade pre-impregnated 12K carbon with a matte finish. This means that the carbon sheets include the perfect amount of resin, which is hand-pressed into the mold and cured under pressure and heat in an autoclave. This industry-leading process produces carbon structures that are ~30% lighter and stronger than standard carbon alternatives.
Blade Size 420 x 180 mm
Blade Area 555 cm²
Blade Angle 8.75°
Adjustable Length 170 to 225 cm
Blade Material HDPE core + 6 Layers Carbon + Fiberglass Stringer
Shaft Material 12k Pre-preg Carbon
Shaft Diameter 28 mm
Shaft Joint Precision Hex with Machined Pin
Weight 610 grams
Handle Shape Anti-Twist with Ergo Grip

ANTI-TWIST HANDLE

The carbon one-piece handle includes a grove and notch that keep the handle and blade aligned for quick and easy adjustments out on the water.

2 YEAR WARRANTY

Every paddle in the Honu range comes with a full replacement warranty for any manufacturing defects for two years.

PRE-PEG CARBON

Usually reserved for race cars and spacecraft, the Evolution paddle blades are crafted with pre-impregnated carbon that is then cured under pressure in an autoclave oven.

PERFECT FIT HEX-JOINT

Replacing the standard rounded connection with an engineered hexagonal joint removes the need for a clamp and any possibility of the blade twisting in the shaft.

DOUBLE DIHEDRAL

This engineered shape provides strength, stability and power. Water pulls evenly across the blade without feathering, while the front dihedral provides the strength.

Great lightweight paddle

This paddle is a must have if you're looking for a sturdy, lightweight SUP paddle.

You can paddle hard and know that the paddle will withstand the force. Being as lightweight as it is, it really makes a difference when you're out on your board for hours.

Lightweight easy handling

This paddle for my SUP is quite simply amazing.

Its light wight, very quick 3 piece assembly, extremely sturdy and you can really paddle hard and know that it will withstand the force.

Couldn't see myself going back to anything else.

I'm going to be looking to get my wife one as well.

Paddle was perfect!

I got to use the Honu paddle for the first time yesterday. It is light and sturdy. I like how they designed it. I have a perfect grip wit it and 3 parts connected paddle does not loosen while being used and does the job in getting power from the water. Great Job Honu!

Honu Evolution Paddle

It's very elegant, far exceeds my expectations build wise. The purchase experience was very unique, the price was the price, shipping, taxes/duty all included in the Cart price. Here in Canada we expect "surprises" when things are shipped to us, no surprises! Thank you so much Honu crew!
