The Bolt and Glide Youth are perfect for getting kids started and progressing. Their shaft flex and blade size are calculated for youth paddlers. These paddles have a blend of composite materials, making them lightweight and durable. They are easy to adjust, so that the paddle can grow with the child.
The Glide Youth is 100% fiberglass for increased durability while the Bolt Youth is a mix of 65% carbon and 35% fiberglass, making the paddle firmer, lighter, and higher performance than the Glide.
SIC's 2021 collection of paddles was developed from the ground up. The ultimate goal was to create the perfect, comprehensive range to suit all paddlers from the most elite in the world, like those men and women on the SIC team, recreational fitness, beginners, and youth paddlers. From top to bottom, the SIC paddle range utilizes a wide variety of materials offering a multitude of flexes, blade shapes, and grip options. We are confident that you will find the perfect paddle for you in our extensive range.
SIC paddles are available in various blade sizes and materials to give maximum performance, function, and strength. The higher-end Carbon and fiberglass blades feature an ABS tip protection, sandwiched between the carbon layers to improve overall strength and durability. The thermoplastic blades offer an affordable and durable option for beginners, clubs, and schools.
For 2021, we introduce a newly designed standard diameter shaft that covers the majority of paddlers. This is offered in a variety of flexes, from firm to soft. New for 2021 is our all-new slim shaft, designed for women paddlers/smaller hands and anyone who prefers a thinner shaft.
Our cut-to-length (CTL) paddles come with ergonomic hollow 3K Carbon blow-molded T-grip handles, which get glued in after the rider has cut the shaft to the desired length. Our adjust-to-fit (ATF) paddles come with a 6" adjustable Lever Lock handle, which allows the rider to cut the shaft to the shortest desired length while still adjusting the length when needed. All CTL paddles are compatible with the ATF system. As long as the CTL shafts are compatible, you can cut off your glued in handle and then replace it with a Lever Lock (ATF) handle instead.
