Akiak is the world's first Greenland style paddle with replaceable ProTek tips. A perfect entry level carbon fiber paddle for optimal balance between efficiency and comfort.
Inuit Ingenuity & Modern Technology
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 two vibrant colors to match your kayak, gear or mood.
Original ProTek Tip
Gearlab’s signature ProTek tip design bolsters the ends of the Gearlab Greenland paddle with an easily replaceable tip made from a durable polyamide material. This provides confidence in rocky or shallow waters, and the option to customize a paddle with colored tips.
The innovative metal-free carbon spring joint design snaps securely together to ensure a flush, firm connection between the blades. The result is a paddle offering two-piece convenience and a streamlined, one-piece paddling experience.
Aerospace grade Titanium screws are used in all Gearlab Greenland paddles, ensuring that even the smallest element of a Gearlab paddle remains strong and rustproof.
All Gearlab Greenland paddles feature a two-piece design that separates quickly for convenient transportation and storage on the kayak deck. The low-profile carbon fiber button release creates a flush joint and sleek paddle shaft.
Size is power. The longer the paddle is, the more power it produces. The shorter the paddle is, the less power it produces. The best of both words, the Regular Size will give you enough power, while relaxing enough for your long journeys.
