VE Paddles Offside Canoe Paddle with Carbon Aircore Blade and Carbon Shaft is a touring paddle ideally suited for all canoes but especially for paddling for longer periods where not every stroke is vertical.
Offside has a smaller blade area compared to the Pro Canoe and it’s the round edges help knifing and other control strokes. The Offside Aircore comes with VE paddles’ ergo grip as standard
We stock the uncut version so the ergo grip is supplied unattached for you to fit to your preference- although we are happy to cut to your length and attach for you as part of your purchase.
This blade is made from 100% carbon fibre which is pre-impregnated with toughened epoxy resin making it extremely strong, robust and hard-wearing.
