Originz North West Passage

The Northwest Passage paddle from Originz is a fantastic mid-range sea kayaking and inland touring paddle. Suitable for closed cockpit touring kayaks and also sit-on-top kayakers. The blade has a mid-sized surface area, yet still generates sufficient pull through the water to accelerate well and maintain good speed with minimum effort.

Originz is a New Zealand based brand, with many years of experience, world-wide testing and development. The NW Passage is a classic design, proving popular amongst generations of paddlers, and is now available in the UK through Manchester Canoes.

A stiff, fibreglass reinforced nylon covered paddle blade is formed on a dihedral cross section reduces flutter, and allows for a smooth forwards paddling stroke- especially useful for long days out on the water. The addition of fibreglass into the blades provides greater durability, and also stiffness for more conversion of power through the stroke (rather than bending). The fibreglass shaft has moulded handgrips for additional comfort and has drip rings fitted as standard.
