Powerblades are a symmetrical shape, robust blade made from super tough high-impact polypropylene which is virtually indestructible. This toughness makes the Powerblade the number 1 choice of paddle for Australian rafting companies, hire operators and school and scout groups.
All Powerblade paddles are made on a shaft that is 32mm diameter.
The wall thickness of "standard" paddles is 1.1mm.
If you require a paddle to take even more abuse, "heavy duty" aluminium with a 1.6mm wall thickness is available on request.
Structural aluminium is used for maximum strength, and has a clear anodised coating to prevent the paddler's hands turning black.
All of the Powerblade paddles we sell are "double plugged" to inhibit water entering the paddle shaft. This ensures that the paddles will float if dropped into the water.
