CRUISAIR – TOURING / RACE + FITNESS
This concept has proven itself over and over again to be the perfect design for touring, fitness and training. The CRUISAIR LE construction takes this design to new levels of accessibility. The parallel outline and low rocker combined with ample width and uncluttered standing area makes for one fast and stable board. This 12’6″x31″ LE is offered to suit any budget and taste. The CRUISAIR LE is perfect for your everyday paddle and can keep up with the rest if you are planning on entering that upcoming race you have been training for.
The LE stands for ‘Light Edition’ – Light weight, Light design and Light on your pocket!
The drop-stich material itself is thinner than our standard JP double-layer edition. Therefore the boards are lighter, yet they retain a very similar stiffness as JP double-layer edition inflatables. This has been achieved with a special lamination bond to Cross-Linked Space Yarn during the material production. The new material that we use for LE boards is not to be compared to the competition ‘single-skin’ inflatables which are often not 100% airtight and are much softer than our stiff LE boards.
The fact that the drop-stitch material itself is thinner carries a risk of an easier damage if the board is not handled with care. Sharp rocks and frequent abrasion on concrete or asphalt may result in damage to the surface easier than with a standard JP double-layer edition board.
The advantages of the LE edition include the facts that the boards are almost half the weight of some of the competition boards in the same size. They can be rolled tightly and therefore take almost half the space of some of the competition boards. This led us to developing a more compact bag.
To keep the boards light on your pocket we opted for a minimalist design in white color. We supply the boards with high pressure single-stroke pump and they come in single fin option.

CARBON PRO PADDLES
No compromise! 100% Carbon CNC shaped high density PVC core blade! 100% Carbon shaft! This is the only way to achieve lowest weight, quickest response and ultimate performance. The dihedral foiled blades feature a generous ABS edge for the protection of your board and the blade. The handles are made of 100% Carbon, the Cut-To-Length handle is covered with a comfortable EVA.
Blade: 100% Carbon with ABS edge Shaft: 100% Carbon with matt finish Blade Area (Size): • 85 inch2 (17.7" x 7.4", 45 x 19 cm) • 92 inch2 (17" x 8.3", 43 x 20.5 cm) 1-piece - Cut To Length: <7'4", <223 cm | Weight 450g (blade 85), 470g (blade 92) 2-piece - Length 6'0"-7'4", 183-223 cm | Weight 590g (blade 85), 600g (blade 92) 3-piece - Length 6'0"-7'4", 183-223 cm | Weight 690g (blade 92)
100% Carbon CNC shaped high density PVC core blade with a 60% Carbon shaft is a great performance paddle. We kept the 'swing weight' low by using the full carbon blade. The 60% Carbon shaft is a better option for those looking for a slightly forgiving feel at a really low weight predominantly in waves or touring. The dihedral foiled blades feature a generous ABS edge for the protection of your board and the blade.

The Venus paddles feature a light 60% carbon shaft and a CNC shaped high density PVC core blade with a fiberglass layup for the ultimate in light weight and shoulder comfort. The blades come with our stunning Venus gloss design and green ABS edge for protection.

The full composite fiberglass construction provides perfor-mance at great value. Fiberglass flexes naturally and is therefore easy on your shoulders and back. The stringer inside the blade creates stiffness while the full fiberglass pressure molded blade is leak proof. ABS handle. The shafts have a horizontally roughened surface for a good grip.

GLASS PE PADDLES
This combination of light fiberglass shaft and tough fiberglass reinforced Polyethylene (PE) blade is a great alternative to heavy alloy paddles.?Due to the longitudinal structural reinforcements, the PE blades are very light but also very stiff.
New for 2016 is the small Glass PE paddle with a 75in2 blade (40cmx17cm). The shafts have horizontally roughened surface for a good grip and they come with an ABS handle. Blade: glass PE Shaft: fiberglass with glossy rough finish Size / Blade Area: • 90 in2 (17" x 8.3", 43 x 21 cm) • 75 in2 (15.7" x 6.7", 40 x 17 cm) 2-piece - Length: 5'2"-7'0", 158-214 cm | Weight 850g 3-piece - Length: 5'7"-7'0", 170-214 cm | Weight 940g Length 2 piece: 4'5"-6'3", 135-190 cm
The compression clamps are very solid due to two connecting points secured through a FCS compatible set of screws for fine tuning.
The inner tube fit to the shaft is impeccable and there is absolutely no play. There are no holes drilled either on the extension or the shaft, so the construction is not compromised.
The nice feature to the 3 piece paddles is that the extension can be attached directly to the bottom part to work nicely as a kids paddle.
