The Sawyer Cross Cut IV is our 4th generation high-performance whitewater kayak paddle. The streamlined blade profile fits modern play and creek boats for advanced moves, while the full asymmetrical tapered blades work great for subtle moves. It also gives you increased power the deeper you dig in for critical finishing strokes. An open oval crankshaft maximizes comfort and minimizes fatigue. Now available with a full perimeter Dynel Tough Edge for knuckle dragging and boulder blocking.
Optional Crank Shaft
This Kayak Paddle also comes in a bent shaft (crank shaft) design that reduces the stress on wrists by placing them at a more ergonomic position.
