Product Description

JANTEX GAMMA RIO

One of Jantex’s most successful shapes (Jantex Gamma) has been fine tuned to create the Gamma Rio blade. Developed in co-operation with Max Hoff extra sizes were added  to create the Gamma Rio range with the addition of some minor changes to the larger blade sizes. This  ensures a paddler can choose the best size blade to suit their use.

This blade provides an aggressive catch, improved stability and excellent exit.

The new Rio line has 9 kayak blade sizes giving more options and finer gaps between sizes.

For a range of paddlers from kids to strongest male paddlers.

Shaft Stiffness

Research has shown that a more flexible shaft has greatly aided to offset injury with little to no loss of performance. This is particularly paramount for paddlers doing a lot of distance paddling.  The Soft shaft and  Flexi-soft shaft are now built on 95% of paddles made today.
