ve creeker glass blade straight glass shaft
The VE Creeker Glass Blade Straight Glass Shaft whitewater kayak paddle blade is designed to be a great all-round paddle that is smooth and well balanced.
The glass blades are tough and hard-wearing and are a great match for those paddling on the harsh Aussie rivers and those who are still learning.
Available here in a straight glass shaft which offers a nice flexible set up which is easy on the body and forgiving – this will suit the majority of kayakers.
The blades area is neutrally aligned either side of the dihedral with the area being well distributed along both the length and width of the blade. These come with a 30 degree right Hand offset with ovalised shafts (locator moulded into the shaft which are otherwise round )
This suits a wide range of kayak paddlers from beginners, to river runners, hardcore creek boaters and those paddling ‘day in and day out’ working in the kayak industry.
The Creeker kayak paddle blade suites longer lengths used in ‘mid to longer length’ river runners and creeker boats and those looking for a blade less powerful than the VE Pro whitewater paddle range.
Area: 700 cm2
Overall length: 485 mm
Overall width: 217 mm.
Every set of VE Paddles is made in Britain, by hand, at their factory in Clevedon. They take care at each step so you can rely on VE as your connection to the water. VE paddles are made using pre-preg carbon and fibreglass materials and compression moulded construction techniques. Blades are fitted onto proprietary carbon or glass shafts; in straight, crank and split versions. All VE Paddles are assembled to a strict process, to ensure a quality finished product. VE Paddles come in a wide range of configurations. We offer popular models in standard lengths, angles and shaft types, plus the chance to customise for your style. The product descriptions and paddle length charts will help guide your choice, but if you want advice on what will work best for you, please get in contact with us. We can often repair your paddle in the unlikely event that you break it so ask us if that happens
