Accent ‘Air’

Intel:

$199 • carbon/resin • 24 oz. • break-apart with multiple feathering setting • accentpaddles.com

Billed as the lightest kayak paddle on the market, the Air is a fantastic cruising paddle. Light in the hands, strong and stiff in the water, the dihedral blades are both quiet and efficient. The carbon shaft and resin blades account for the feathery weight, and the price is still reasonable. Standard up to 240 cm., longer by special order.
