Ainsworth Glass River

Ainsworth glass paddle

This is the latest paddle design form Ainsworth and is destined to be one of those classics that hang around for ever.

The blade shape and surface area are the same as Ainsworth Carbon River blades but the construction is Biaxial Glass Pre Preg with structural foam core. The orientation of the fibres give the best edge wear characteristics along wth reinforced end caps.

This super robust blade is mated to a carbon composite pre preg shaft with index grip on the control side. The result is fantastic. Apart from the stunning appearance, the average weight for a white water River paddle is about 1100g.

The best is yet to come… a retail price of £175 makes this new paddle the most competitive high end paddle on the market.

This construction format is also soon to be available in touring and SUP paddles.
