SMALL CHANGES – BIG RESULTS

Making small but significant changes means Gamma Rio keeps the best parts of the previous Gamma model.

The new range adds three new blade dimensions, with finer gaps between sizes. There’s nine size options that provide close to a custom match, for everyone from newbie kids to the strongest male paddlers.

BLADE TIPS

Paddle tips protect your blades from being knocked around while in the water. They can reduce wear and tear on the edge. 
However, they can increase the weight of your paddle. So if you paddle mainly on flat water at average distances, they may not suit your style. If you paddle in harsher environments, such as rivers, they can help extend the life of your blades immeasurably.

Metal Tips

  • Maximum protection
  • Recommended for rocky rivers
  • Higher maintenance: need filing regularly to keep them sharp
  • They should not be used in salt water environments.

Carbon Tips

  • Designed for flat water and marathon kayaking
  • Offer improved protection and wearability
  • Don’t need sharpening

SHAFT

Adjustable or fixed shaft? 

Adjustable shafts give you a range of paddling lengths - useful for different paddling conditions. Adjustable shafts are also much easier to travel with!

Fixed shafts give the paddle a firmer feel as there's no join in the middle.

NB: SHAFT COST IS INCLUDED IN THE PADDLE BLADE PRICE. 
If you would like to order an adjustable shaft, simply add the adjustable shaft to your cart and we'll include it in your order.
