Are carbon fiber kayak paddles worth buying?

         If you want to kayak quickly and steadily, a paddle is a crucial tool. The supporting paddles are divided into still water paddles and whitewater paddles. Flat water paddles are divided into racing paddles and cruising paddles. Naturally, racing paddles are used in kayak racing events. The paddle is the flat part at both ends of a paddle that comes into contact with the water and slides to generate reverse power to help the kayak move forward.

        According to the material, kayak paddles include aluminum alloy paddles, fiberglass paddles and carbon fiber paddles. The earliest ones used were aluminum alloy blades because they were the first to be invented, followed by fiberglass blades and carbon fiber blades. Aluminum alloy blades are metal, soft in texture, and prone to oxidation and corrosion, so they are gradually being replaced by composite blades.

       Advantages of Carbon Fiber Kayak Paddles

     1. Light weight:The density is only 1.7g/cm3, which is more than half that of aluminum alloy. The lighter the weight, the more physical energy is saved;

     2. High tensile strength:The tensile strength of carbon fiber composite materials is generally above 3500Mpa, which is 7 to 9 times that of steel and about 25% higher than the tensile strength of alkali-free glass fiber;

      3. High tensile elastic modulus:The tensile elastic modulus is 23000~43000Mpa, which is higher than E-glass fiber. The strength performance is much higher than that of glass fiber, the monofilament can reach more than 4800Mpa, and the elastic modulus can also reach 24000MPA;

      4. High temperature resistance:It can withstand high temperatures of 150°C, and is also suitable for summer training and competitions;

      5. Corrosion resistance:good resistance to weak acids and alkalis, creep resistance, oxidation resistance, and longer overall service life.

     Carbon fiber has been successfully used in kayak paddles. It is ultra-light and ultra-high-strength and can help athletes row at the fastest speed with the least amount of physical energy. It is a very popular material in competitive sports.
