The Swede form design makes it simple (and fun and rewarding and spirit-lifting) to get from point A to point B . . . without wandering to all points in-between.
You can toss enough gear in the ample rear hatch for a serious day trip, hit a river or lake or coastal inlet, and cut a smooth steady trail across the water. As a bonus, you won’t tear a rotator cuff putting the 116 on your roof rack because it tips the scales at a svelte 38 pounds. (Spoiler alert ― the Santee 116 won’t fight you when you paddle. It’ll work with you, so you’ll end up having a blast.)
With a 6061 T6 Aluminium shaft and durable glass filled nylon blades, the VARIO Crossover delivers smooth, efficient power and excellent value. Includes MicroGrip handgrips and drip guards. All Vario paddles have a feather (offset) option. Simply open the Micro-Lock in the center of the shaft and adjust to your desired angle. The shaft is marked with +/- 45 deg. Adjusts from 210 cm to 240 cm.
Keep your paddle secure while paddling with the YakGear Paddle Leash. This 1/2-ounce, 40-inch leash features a carabiner on one end and a velcro strap on the other for maximum connection possibilities to your kayak, while maintaining unrestricted paddle movement.
