Set of 2 GEARLAB Paddle Tips provide extra protection for the fine tips of paddles and may be purchased separate from paddles.

The difference between the round and flat tips is largely cosmetic – both function equally well in all conditions. The choice is a personal preference. Some paddlers believe that the flat tip provides greater strength when pushing off rocks in shallow water. Other paddlers prefer the way the round tip fits in their hands for extended strokes.

  • Akiak and Nukilik paddles produced before February 2016 are custom made with either flat or round tips and cannot be changed later. For example, only round tips (in any colour) may be installed on paddles produced with a round tip.
  • Akiak and Nukilik paddles produced after February 2016 allow for interchangeable tips. Round and flat tips of any color may be installed on the paddle at a later date.
  • All Kayakid and Aukaneck paddles allow for round or flat tips to be interchanged.
  • Akiak and Nukilik blades are the same width, and the tips (size : S) may be interchanged between the paddles. The Kayakid and Aukaneck paddle is wider and uses a unique size tip (size : L) that does not fit the narrower blades.
