With a 100% carbon shaft, contoured palm grip and epX engineered polymer blade, the Freedom 85 weighs only 23.5 oz. for high cadence paddling. This paddle is perfect for intermediate paddleboarders, its stiff, durable blade delivers more power with every stroke: no whippy, wimpy blade here. And…it looks really cool. This paddle’s ocean blue blade and grip – and its Polynesian graphics – make a real statement on the water.
