light and strong
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.
|420 x 180 mm
|170 to 225 cm
|HDPE core + 6 Layers Carbon + Fiberglass Stringer
|12k Pre-preg Carbon
|Precision Hex with Machined Pin
|Anti-Twist with Ergo Grip
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.
This paddle is super light and very well constructed. I can notice a tiny “click”when paddling but no flex whatsoever. Light, stiff, comfortable and get me up to speed fast
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.
