The Aquabound Challenge is an ideal paddle for SUP touring. It features an aggressive dihedral down the spine, which delivers a smooth, powerful forward stroke. Its makeup contains a lightweight, all-carbon shaft with a 10° bend that provides a low swing weight and a slight shaft flex for a very comfortable performance. The 85-square-inch blade has enhanced stiffness and strength thanks to its carbon-fibre reinforcement. Weighing 21 oz., the Challenge is easy on your joints and muscles. It also contains a contoured palm grip made entirely of carbon, which is comfortable in your hands. The 100% carbon ferrule is light, strong and corrosion-resistant.
