Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can Demo our boats and paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!

    Buyers Guide

    1 - Boat's Width.

    You must know the width of your boat. This measure is important as it is essential to determine the length of your paddle. There is a multitude of kayaks on the market, but it is nevertheless easy to determine three sizes :
     
    small : from 48 to 55 cm
    medium : from 57 to 63cm
    large : from 65 cm on
     
    Caution
    Values in the choice table (below) are for medium boat (width from 57 to 63cm). Reduce length by 5 cm for a 'Small' boat (width from 48 to 55cm) or increase length by 5cm if your boat is large (over 65 cm).
     

    2 - Your Size.

    Second Parameter : your size.
    Your height is also determining for the length of your paddle. If you are between 155 and 165 cm tall, you will have a shorter paddle than someone who's height is between 175 and 185 cm, and if your height is over 190 cm, you will neeed an even longer paddle !
    And this is true regardless of the type of boat you are using.  We have 2 adjustment systems which enable you to change the length of your paddle

     

    3 - Your Style of Paddle Stroke

    "Hi angle” > A vertical paddle stroke :
    The paddle is close to the boat's bottom, the directional stability is good. It is a dynamic paddle stroke : Rates of striking are high and the search for brace is important. Power is the goal to reach in order to do fast maneuvers, some physical conditioning or to maneuver in difficult conditions. It is the European style, which is taught in many paddle sport schools!
     
    "Low angle”> A more horizontal paddle stroke :
    The catch is softer and rates of striking are lower. 
    The movement of the paddle is rounder. Directional stability on boats with no fin nor rudder is not as good. It is less tiring 
    for muscles and joints during long trips. It is also very good for backaches ! 
    The low angle style comes from North America.

     

    4 - Size of the Blades

    It depends on the paddler's level of experience and of his physical condition :
     
    Large : for those who are powerful and in a good physical condition.
    Medium : is the most representative size, the most polyvalent one.
     
    You can compare this to a bicycle bracket : A large paddle takes in much more water and the rate of striking will be lower and will ask for more power. With a Medium paddle, the rate of striking can increase without needing to develop a strong power.

     

    5 - The Crossing Angle of the Blades

    What is its purpose?
    We owe this feather angle to the athletes who practice kayak races in lane : they noticed that blades forming a 90° angle with one another offered much less aerodynamic resistance on the aerial blade. This advantage was even more pronounced with a headwind with which a significant part of the energy of the paddle stroke was lost in pushing some air ; Not to mention the decrease of the rate of striking build-up due to this resistance. 
     
    After decades of 90° crossings, angles were decreased to
     
    60° on most of the touring paddles
    55° in lane race
    and 45° in whitewater paddles
     
    The decrease of the angle enabled a more comfortable paddle stroke. The 30° and 45° reductions helped limit the movement of the wrist (mostly the right one) responsible for pivoting. 
     
    Left or right crossing?
    90% of people do right crossings ! For left crossings, don't panic, we make these paddles on demand. The Vario S Lock System also offers the possibility of adjusting crossing angles.

     

    6 - The Shaft

    The straight shaft is the shaft that is used most often as the hand positioning is free on its whole length. 
    The ergonomic shaft enables the paddler to keep the alignment of his arm with his hand. 
    The effect of this is less joint stress on the wrist and much more contact surface with the shaft. It is a comfortable 
    hold and we recommend this  paddlers who perfectly master 
    their hand placement as the small ergonomic area imposes a very precise positioning. 
    On "white water" paddles, which are regularly under 2 meters, the hand positioning is done more out of instinct and this is where the ergo shaft can bring a comfort in use from the very first use.

     

    7 - Fixed or Adjustable Paddle Length

    Some purists only swear by fixed paddles. We used to be like this too, before we started to develop our own adjustable shafts! most of the existing systems are, as far as we are concerned, not very reliable in the rotation blocks and, moreover, the flexion of the shaft is impaired by double collars.
     
    From this fact, we developed our own adjusting systems and we designed adjustable tubes with constant flexion.
     
    Fixed or mono : This option means that you have no displaceable adjusting system on your paddle. The length is f xed.
    S-Lock : The Vario S-Lock can be adjusted over 10cm, with an infinite choice of feathers. It also enables you to adjust your paddle with more precision. This option is recommended for all the paddle-users who want to customize their paddle as much as possible.
    S-Lock 2 : The Vario S-Lock 2 is an evolution of the famous S-lock system. Light, compact, it is functional without any tool. It can be adjusted over 10 cm, with an infinite choice of feathers. It also enables you to adjust your paddle with more precision.
    Fast-Lock : The Fast-Lock can be adjusted over 9cm, by 3cm intervals. it enables you to quickly adjust the length of the paddle without altering its feather angle.

     

    8 - Ovalised tube or no!

    Some kayaking practices require index to help hands position during paddling. This index is usually called «Paddle grip»
     
    • The oval shaft is an evolution of this paddle grip. main assets for the grip: Quality and comfort handling to offer an excellent paddle control during eskimo roll, sailing in a strong current...
    • The «Racing» paddle is not equipped with a paddle grip. But you can order it as an accessory. We do not recommend to put a paddle grip on a race paddle, as it will interfere with the stroke.

     

    9 - Your Program.

    Last parameter but not least : your program choice : you have already answered this question buying your kayak or canoe.
     
    3 kayak programs :
     
    Touring ;
    White Water;
    Race.
    Three tables were established following sailing programs.
    These tables are quite precise in their recommendations. You can thus use them with confidence to choose your paddle.

     

    Choosing a 'Touring' Paddle

    Values in the below table are for medium boat (width from 57 to 63 cm). Reduce length by 5 cm for a'Small' boat (width from 48 to 55 cm) or increase length by 5cm if your boat is large (over 65 cm).[

    Choosing a 'White Water' Paddle

    The size of the PADDLE depends a lot on the type of boat that is used. The volume should be taken into account: a short PADDLE will be interesting for the beginner and the Rodeo (hard to do figures with a bulky paddle); a longer PADDLE will yield more power in difficult rivers where maneuvers must be very precise.This table is intended for help only and not as something to impose. It only reflects the global trend! 
    Important note for small volume boats: please consider the first recommended value in RED.

    Choosing a 'Canoe' Paddle

    Here is a simple way of determining the length of a canoe paddle: Sit down on a chair or on the floor, then measure the distance between your eyes and the seating. This measure will help you choose your paddle in the following table. Important: this is only a way of validating an approach. The best way of choosing a paddle, as far as possible, is to try it out!

    Hi, My name is

    My question about Select X.TR Ergo is...
    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
