Mangu Bent Shaft Whitewater Kayak Paddle – Hard Core Paddles

Named after the Maori word for black, the Mangu strikes a perfect balance between performance and durability. Perfect for paddlers looking for a high performance feel without compromising on reliability.

SHAFT FEATURES


Outer Carbon sleeve combined with carbon uni layers laminated within the cedar core creates the perfect balance between performance and durability                                        

Our bent shaft design allows for a narrower paddlers box and greater freedom of hand position.                                                  
The ergonomic grip profile provides intuitive blade alignment and greater control with less grip pressure. Two grip sizes available.
                         

Looking for a backup breakdown or travel paddle that feels and performs like a one piece and is just as durable?Look no further! Our unique internal locating and clamping mechanism creates a super positive joint that wont wear or loosen over time, and has no external or protruding mechanisms. A simple 180 degree turn with the supplied Allen key will set or release the clamp.
Because the joint has a built in locator you will need to choose the feather upon order.

BLADE FEATURES


Combining the unique properties of Carbon, Innegra and S-Glass creates a light, stiff and extremely durable blade skin

A combination of hard wearing Dynel cord and carbon unidirectional fibres prevents gradual wear and adds strength and rigidity to the blades edges

A progressive, double-concave, dihedral profile combined with an aggressive catch generates more power from less blade area while also providing greater balance and control 

The result is a tough, lightweight, high performance blade that has the power of a much bigger blade but is also extremely well balanced and forgiving

SPECIFICATIONS / OPTIONS


FEATHER One and two piece available in left and right, 0, 15, 30, 45, and 60 degree feathersPlease contact us if you require a left hand feather or any other length not listed here.

FLEX  The Mangu comes with a Flex rating of 9 out of 10, 1 being very flexible and 10 being very stiff. Although the Mangu feels like a very stiff responsive paddle it has different characteristics to a hollow core carbon shaft in that it will become more forgiving under heavy loads and will better absorb shock loading which makes it easier on your body

GRIP  Choose between Standard and Small grip sizes. The Standard grip has an average diaeter of 31mm and is the size of choice for most paddlers. The Small Grip has an average diameter of 29mm.
