STARBOARD ENDURO BALSA
Flexibility and strength are tailored to each blade size and shape through the use of biaxial and unidirectional fabrics.
All 2022 blades are made with a plant-based bio-resin, maintaining high performance with less impact on the environment.
100% long grain balsa core with low density for better strength and paddle feel.
45 degree biaxial glass fabric used to increase durability.
Extended reinforcement on the blade neck for greater overall strength.
Pre-molded UD carbon linen collar for added durability.
Infusion of biaxial glass filament rails to the neck for increased durability and impact resistance.
A flexible shaft transfers energy more smoothly, which is suitable for long-distance paddlers and high cadences.
A stiffer shaft provides a more direct transfer of energy and is suitable for larger paddlers and riders who want to use full-length shafts and are looking for a lot of power over short distances.
Note that when you cut a paddle shaft to fit your size, it automatically becomes stiffer.
S35 Stiffness: Popular with taller paddlers using a longer shaft.
S40 Stiffness: A balance in performance between stiffness and flexibility.
The carbon shaft is lightweight and durable for wave and touring sessions.
Smaller diameter shaft for lighter riders who need a smaller grip.
Suitable for kids, women and riders who want a shaft
who want a shaft that is light in the hand.
The most versatile shaft.
Preferred for all-purpose paddling and waves.
