VE Aircore Creeker

VE Aircore Creeker Whitewater paddles have Carbon Aircore Blades which are available on either Carbon Straight or Carbon Cranked Shafts. The blade is made from 100% carbon fibre which is pre-impregnated with toughened epoxy resin making it extremely strong, robust and hard-wearing.

The VE Aircore Creeker whitewater paddles have mid-sized blades that taper towards the neck to provide a gradual transfer of power through the stroke. This has created a smooth and well balanced paddle suitable for a wide range of paddlers and river conditions. The Carbon Aircore Blades are stronger and more buoyant than the glass build. The rigidity of the blade adds noticable power and precision compared to the Creeker Glass blades.

The area of the blade is arranged to achieve a neutral balance either side of the dihedral and along the length of the blade. The predictable and well-balanced feel of this blade is suitable for paddlers from those new to white water to the very experienced.

The VE Aircore Creeker paddle has been designed to suit river runners, hardcore creek boaters and paddlesports industry workers such as coaches and guides. It is available in a range of shaft types including straight or cranked shafts.

Choosing a shaft: Glass shafts have a barely perceptible flex however are slightly heavier than the carbon shaft. If your looking for a stiffer and lighter shaft the carbon models would be a better choice. Cranked shafts provide an ergonomic moulded grip which is angled for neutral wrist alignment and neutral blade offset to put less strain on paddler's wrists. If you are looking for a larger more powerful blade then check out our VE Aircore Pro Paddles.
