After working with Gearlab Outdoors for years (and a number of stories about the MR340) they wanted to work on a custom design to help fundraise! This design is only available through our website or Gearlab Outdoors and is very limited with all profit being donated directly to Missouri River Relief. This custom design is only available on the standard (220 cm) length Akiak.
**We have a limited number of these currently in stock.**
The Akiak is the world’s most popular Greenland-style carbon fiber paddle.
Combining proven Inuit ingenuity and advanced carbon fiber technology, the Akiak is a versatile paddle for all conditions. Sporting a perfectly balanced hydrodynamic shape, it allows kayakers to explore new waters further with ease.
Greenland style paddle blades make contact with the water covering roughly the same surface area as Euro-blades,
but the even distribution results in a smoother stroke and more control in the water.
The narrow blade also creates less resistance in the air, allowing paddlers to explore further with less physical strain.
The Akiak is available in a shoulderless design, allowing for more flexibility in hand positioning for various strokes.
