ZRE has adapted two aerospace technologies to manufacture our lightweight canoe paddles.
Reduce effort with lightweight ZRE paddles!
The lightest and strongest paddle material available. 100% high-modulus, pre-impregnated carbon fiber, otherwise known as graphite. This is the lightest and strongest material available and the very same carbon fiber they use in making Formula 1 Grand Prix racecar bodies.
All of our paddles’ shafts are made from pre-impregnated carbon fiber.
Slightly heavier than prepreg but just as durable. Most of our blades are constructed with this material.
Highly affordable and super-tough for recreational and commercial use. We also use this material for our affordable yet still super-light and strong recreational canoe paddles.
ZRE paddles are constructed as follows:
GRIP – 100% carbon fiber/epoxy. These hollow grips fit comfortably in your palm with their ergonomic dimple pattern and finger recess.
SHAFT – Every ZRE paddle shaft is hollow and crafted to custom lengths at 1/32-inch intervals. Smoother shaft-to-blade transition for cleaner entry/exit.
All our shafts are made of 100% carbon fiber prepreg and centerless wet sanded to a super-smooth, polished finish.
ZRE paddles feature a tapered oval shaft for strength, weight, comfort, and positive tracking.
BLADE – All ZRE paddles have angled, super-durable foam core blades with computer-balanced weighting.
Blades are foiled to minimize turbulence, providing the smoothest entry/exit in the industry.
Perfectly symmetrical for a smoother, more natural rhythm. Sharpened shoulders for a super-efficient, close-to-the-keel-line power stroke.
