Ainsworth River Paddle Poly Carb:

  • Ainsworth uses a super tough PolyCarbonate composite injection moulded construction. This makes for superb durability and performance, resulting in a strong, all-round paddle. The material strength is over double that of the nylon 12 used in many other nylon paddles in this price range. Ainsworth’s PolyCarbonate blade is much stiffer than other nylon paddles. The shaft is pressed into the blades with hydraulic pressure to a depth of 10cm, ensuring a watertight joint and a continuous feel from shaft to blade tip. The high strength of the material means that the blade can be made lighter than other paddles that use a Nylon construction.

One Piece Glass Straight Shaft:

  • This Ainsworth River Paddle has a Glass fibre prepreg composite shaft. This offers more flex than a carbon shaft, but still has the warm feel of composite material. This shaft is often favoured by touring paddlers to lessen the impact of a stiff shaft on longer journeys. When used in its shorter format on a whitewater paddle, the shaft still remains stiff enough to deliver power. It also provides a degree of flex that some paddlers prefer. This shaft is a paddler’s choice with its’ cost-saving appeal over the carbon shaft.


  • Ainsworth provides a one-year warranty from the date of purchase. It covers defects in materials and craftsmanship under normal use.
