This model is called Fusion because it has a bamboo shaft and a carbon fiber blade. It is designed for distances longer than 1,500m by providing the ideal weight to rigidity ratio to allow you to produce power efficiently over a longer period of time. However, the Fusion model is also extremely effective over shorter distances. This paddle weighs 450g.
To develop this paddle, Viper Va'a worked closely with the world-famous EDT Va'a team and in particular its captain Steeve Teihotahaa. This paddle has won many major long-distance races: Molokai Hoe, Hawaiki Nui, Te Aito, Super Aito, Molokai Solo, and more.
Due to the amount of customization available for Viper paddles, they are not kept in stock in Vancouver, Canada. Paddles are made to order in Tahiti and delivered as a group with others in your region to allow you to get the perfect paddle for you.
World-wide shipping is $75, but for group orders (5+ paddles), it's on us. Please contact us to set up a group order.
All Viper Paddles are hand crafted in Tahiti - the birthplace of Va'a
