Our high performance paddles have it all. The blades are made by a hand lay-up process, with flexible yet strong epoxy resin capable of handling the most extreme whitewater. We offer 1 piece, 2 piece, carbon fiber, fiberglass, bent shaft, straight shaft, and multiple blade sizes and any degree offset. Choose between many of these options to make a custom paddle unique to you.
Our 1 piece paddle features a carbon fiber shaft combined with fiberglass blades. We combined these materials in efforts to create the ultimate strength to weight ratio in a high performance paddle. Looking for style points? We added rarely seen color in our carbon fiber shaft, giving off a stunning look.
Our full carbon fiber 2 piece bent shaft paddle promotes stability, comfort and increases leverage especially for those struggling with wrist issues. No where else will you find a paddle that combines lightweight carbon fiber, an ergonomic bent shaft and an adjustable ferrule.
Our carbon fiber shaft fiberglass blade 2 piece paddles are appropriate for a wide range of paddlers. Downturned blades provides extremely responsive directional strokes perfect for playboating. Don't think for a second these paddles are limited to just playboating. Not only are these paddles great for surfing on your local wave hole, they allow for smooth and stable forward strokes getting you downstream with style. Fiberglass blades provide a slight flex in your stroke compared to Carbon Fiber. The flex and strength provides a perfect combination of strain free paddling without compromising reliability.
The durability of our middle connector is what really makes a 2 piece Royal Paddle stand out as the best in the market. Our breakdown paddles allow you to adjust the feather to any desired degree, left or right handed. Unlike other breakdown paddles on the market who use plastic, we use a hard anodizing anti-corrosion aluminum alloy clamp to connect both pieces. We find this added strength extremely important when it comes to keeping your paddle in 1 piece when you need it the most.
Worried about durability given it's a two piece? Royal Paddles have been tested by class V paddlers in some of the most challenging runs California has to offer. Not only have these paddles proven their durability, they have become the ultimate versatile whitewater paddle.
Currently in stock at Sierra Outdoor Center in Auburn, CA.
"After my Alaska trip, I’ve had the paddle out quite a bit. I used it for racing at the Gallatin whitewater festival and it was nice (though tiring) to have a longer and bigger paddle for that. I also took it down the South Fork Salmon at about 4.5”. I am continuing to LOVE the hand position of the bent shaft, and everyone that has borrowed it has loved it too. I don’t mind the shaft diameter either. The edges of the blade are starting to shown a little wear, but I don’t think it’s an abnormal amount."
Need a paddle? Look no further! This thing is lightweight and reliable. Responsive and durable. Comfort of a bent shaft, convenience of a break down! Feeling snappy on that roll. Love this paddle.
