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.
All Viper Paddles are hand crafted in Raiatea, French Polynesia - the birthplace of Va'a
