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.
Every paddle in the Honu range comes with a full replacement warranty for any manufacturing defects for two years.
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.
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.
This engineered shape provides strength, stability and power. Water pulls evenly across the blade without feathering, while the front dihedral provides the strength.
I’ve been looking for a high quality paddle with a medium to small blade that is actually affordable. The Evolution Carbon far exceeded my expectations on my very first stroke. I had been using a paddle with a blade that was too big for me and I would typically be achy the day after a paddle, my shoulders are thanking me for this purchase. The added bonus is this paddle is beautiful and the layup is flawless. I ordered a second one for my wife I liked it so much.
I'm a beginner and this is the third paddle I have tried. It's lightweight, easy to adjust, and easy to use. I'm very happy with it. I highly recommend this paddle.
The Evolution Carbon paddle is a very lightweight and solid paddle with a high quality carry bag. The Honu Element paddle is far superior to most entry level SUP paddles. Would highly recommend the Evolution Carbon paddle for those looking for a lighter and very solid paddling experience especially during longer paddles/racing.
Mine weighed in at 634g which is really close to the advertised weight and far less than my other paddles. I haven't even seen any claiming to be this light. The grip at the top is quite large and makes for a relaxed grip and the shaft is a bit over 28mm, which is also a nice size.
The angle and blade shape make for a nice stable paddle stroke with no flutter. I'm not sure it's the most efficient shape for speed or power, but it slips in and out of the water like a knife. I'd call this my zen paddle.
My only problem with this paddle is that it's too nice to take out on the river. When you hit a rock, you will cringe!
