ZSS Dura Series (Kayak/Ski)

A great option for surf and river racing, this paddle series has been designed for those paddlers who are seeking a low-cost paddle to fill the void between the more expensive carbon range and the basic entry level plastic composite blades. But don’t be fooled by the price. These paddles come with the same high quality carbon shafts provided on our carbon range paddles and with tried and tested Kevlar/Glass blades from Maxpaddle in South Africa.

These blades are made from a solid, no core, construction of Kevlar and Fibreglass with an epoxy matrix. This means they are great for rivers where impact and chips from rocks may occur . They are also great for those paddlers looking for a low-cost option for surf and flatwater paddling.

The Dura series comes with 5 blades choices (on a fixed or adjustable shaft):
M3xs, M3, J-tech small, J-tech medium, B4
