The latest blade shape from Kajner is the result of many years of development work of which Laszlo Babella’s legendary aluminium paddle was the starting point.


The blade exhibits notably improved characteristics when compared to the Kajner 4. It possesses increased twist through all blade directions. A positive and fast catch without water lift at the exit.
The increased curve through the various directions of the blades increases its effectiveness. In total, fluid- dynamical measurements show a 15% improvement in performance compared to the equivalent Kajner 4 blade area. As the blade behaves neutrally in the water, it can stay close to the hull during the first half of the stroke, making it more efficient and more effective in producing force in the direction of kayak movement. If there is one blade shape that can make you rethink the paddle blade you have is the best, then this is it. In over three decades of paddling we can honestly say this blade shape is unique and the best shape we have ever used.

 

The Siklo Series adjustable paddle comes standard with our anodized aluminium adjustor (6061, hard anodized).
