Jantex Gamma Kayak Paddle





The Jantex Gamma (previously known as Gamma Rio) was developed in co-operation with Max Hoff, a German sprint canoeist and former wildwater canoeist who has competed since the late 2000s, winning a total of eight medals at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships with five golds and three silvers

This is now the most popular blade shape in the Jantex range.

This blade provides an aggressive very stable catch, improved stability, excellent pull through stage and outstanding exit. It is very flexible with the frequency of strokes.

There are 12 kayak blade sizes giving more options and finer gaps between sizes.

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