1. Overmont Kayak Paddle

The Overmont is our best-value kayak paddle on the market. With that said, the “low cost” does not detract from the quality of this product.

The 2-piece paddle features an aluminum shaft that is corrosion-resistant and durable. In fact, the aluminium paddle is so lightweight that they will float in the water should you accidently drop them.

Crafted from PP and fibreglass, the blades are crafted into a duck palm arc that helps pull water with more strength. The blades also feature a double serrated teeth edge design to produce a better diversion effect.

Whether you’re on a budget or looking for a starter paddle, the Overmont gives a solid performance for an affordable price.
