PLEASE NOTE: KALLEQ 220 AND 230CM ARE CURRENTLY ON BACKORDER FROM GEARLAB DUE TO SUPPLY CHAIN PROBLEMS; WE'RE EXPECTING TO HAVE THEM AVAILABLE TO SHIP AGAIN IN MID TO LATE SEPTEMBER.
The Kalleq offers kayakers the ultimate touring experience. It is the lightest and strongest paddle in Gearlab's line, thanks to its revolutionary engineering, brilliant design, premium materials, and seamless carbon fiber construction.
Meticulously engineered, the Kalleq edge measures 1.1 mm at its thinnest point. The smoothness of this edge guarantees complete comfort while the paddle slices the water with unparalleled efficiency.
Average weight for a 220cm Kalleq is 26.5 ounces, about 8 ounces lighter than the Akiak.
For a paddler 5'6 to 6' paddling a 21 to 24" wide boat, the 220cm is probably your ride; if you're a little taller or shorter or paddling a wider boat, you might want to go up or down one size.
