Jantex BETA RIO Paddle Blade

Working with Rene Poulsen, the Jantex Team has made big improvements with small changes to the Beta Blade.

NB: SHAFT COST IS INCLUDED IN THE PADDLE BLADE PRICE. 


The Jantex Beta Rio is even more aggressive at the start, while offering better control and an excellent exit. The shape is shorter and wider, with more twist added. In the larger blade sizes, this improvement only required minor tweaks. The mid-range Beta Rio has improved trimming and the smaller sizes feature a new shape that is better centered.

The new range adds three new blade dimensions. There’s now 10 size options with each size increasing in area by 20cm3. So there’s almost a custom match available for every paddler, from newbie kids to the strongest male paddlers.

Has your child just started paddling as a TYRO or U14? Why not give them the best start with a Jantex Baby Beta. They are a on at a super sharp price!

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.

If you would like advice on whether you need Blade Tips, please give Terry a quick call on 021 074 8485.

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.
