If you’re looking for an adjustable paddle with a bit more class, then the stylish RRD Avant 30 Carbon adjustable paddle would be a good paddle to look at. Easy to use and stable in the water, it would suit a wide range of paddlers. Available in two types – the 2 piece adjustable paddle which we review here and the 3 piece paddle that would be great for the travelling iSUP paddlers.
The AVANT PADDLE series is characterized by a special 2 block clamp system. Available in 30% carbon in standard adjustable or as 3 pieces. The full glass shaft is adjustable from the length of 174 cm to 220 cm.
The paddle blade has been thoughtfully designed to maximize all four phases of the stroke, especially when the paddle is pulled at the standing area. The ergonomic handle gives the best grip possible while the small surface of the blade is great for paddling at a higher stroke rate; losing less power during long stand up paddling sessions.
