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.
