Entry for PADDLE – CEKR Vango, touring paddle
The Vango is CEKR’s flagship high angle touring paddle. Smooth and light, it is ideal for a more vertical paddle style.
Blade and shaft design
CEKR’s touring paddles are all about stability in the forward stroke, and the Vango is no exception. It is flutter-free and 100% predictable. It is also super smooth in sliding strokes, and very stable when used for bracing. The voluminous blade feels light in the water, which makes a big difference when covering long distances on the water. Whether you want to do some serious training or just go for any easy jaunt, the Vango will take care of you.
The Vango blade is carefully constructed with a composite mixture of carbon fibre, different types of glass and a tough epoxy resin. This combination makes it light yet durable.
The Vango comes standard with a carbon/glass shaft, which offers relatively good stiffness, yet enough flex to prevent tendonitis from overuse. It is also available with a bent shaft option.
