Grafik River Carbon CTF
LeverLock® Adjustable, High-Strength Carbon ShaftThis tough, high-performance paddle has been designed specifically for the river. It is the same as our popular Grafik River Carbon with a couple of changes to increase performance. Instead of the 18in utiliT we have increased the length of the shaft for a cut to fit option and include the smaller 6in lever lock handle. This increases the strength and decreases the weight of the paddle while still providing enough adjustment to allow the paddler to optimize length across surf, whitewater and flatwater disciplines. This paddle provides optimal bracing and maximum durability for high performance on whitewater descents. A slightly thicker shaft increases durability by 25% but is made with carbon for lightweight stiffness and high performance. Combine all that with our strongest blade and you’ve got the Grafik River Carbon paddle that is insanely burly and will help you have an epic run.
- LeverLock® Short adjust
- Cut to Fit High-Strength Carbon Shaft
- 10 Ply CFRT Fibrlite™ Grafik Blade
Need help sizing the paddle? We recommend extending your paddle arm straight up with a loose, relaxed shoulder (to keep it in a safe extension when paddling). We recommend cutting the paddle 3-6 inches shorter than you would for a normal cut to fit paddle. This allows you to fully benefit from the variable length of the Lever Lock system. If you prefer this paddle can also be set up with a normal glue in T-Grip for the lightest possible set up.
The River Carbon HS is the go-to for whitewater paddling. A slightly thicker high strength carbon shaft increases durability by 25% while still maintaining the extreme lightweight and durable properties of carbon. Combined with the LeverLock® adjustable handle, this paddle becomes custom to you and your needs. A 10 Ply CFRT Fibrlite™ Grafik Blade is our strongest composition to keep up with your burly expeditions. Check out the preferred river paddle by the company pushing the limits in whitewater SUP. Grab your River Carbon HS paddle for all your whitewater descents.
