The B-4 is a extra small tear drop shape that is designed for younger paddlers and paddlers looking for a smaller blade area that won't create a large load on the body. This blade is designed off most popular blade shape of the modern wing/propellor blade era. The teardrop shape provides for an efficient catch and great ability to the water; no slipping or fluttering with an excellent ability to shed water on the exit. The B-4 is fairly easily adapted to. It displays fast and meaningful work for the majority of kayak paddlers.


The ZSS B-4 is constructed from carbon fibre with a high density foam core and an epoxy resin matrix offering an amzing value paddle.


The B-4 blade is available in a single blade size with a round shaft option and the  adjustable paddle comes standard with our anodized aluminium (6061 hard anodized) adjustor.
