Packraft New Zealand Whitewater Paddle Blue
  • Poudre Adventure & Whitewater Paddle (4-Piece Split)

    Following on from the positive reviews of our lightweight Hoki Paddle, our new adventure split offers the same blade shape with reinforced fibreglass tips and a stronger, thicker shaft. Although this makes it slightly heavier than the ultra-light Hoki paddle, weighing in at 830 grams, it achieves the perfect balance between durability and weight.


    Designed by Barny Young on the West Coast of New Zealand, the Poudre Adventure Paddle (4-Piece Breakdown) is our brand-new, premium ultra-light paddle. It is a perfect balance between shape, weight, and durability for use in a variety of water conditions ranging from smaller creeks and moderate whitewater (Class I-III), to long-distance touring, or use on remote alpine lake adventures.


    The Poudre’s ultra-lightweight design makes it a great adventure racing paddle for backpacking or bike packing and the 4-piece breakdown design makes it easy to carry. The carbon-fibre shaft and reinforced fibreglass high-angle blade has been designed for those who want the lightest and most responsive paddle with good power.


    This is the perfect paddle for the jack-of-all-trades adventurer who prioritizes weight and packability but doesn’t want to sacrifice performance.
