Description

The Escape touring paddle ($99, shown at two angles) is another American made Cannon product. It's light enough for kids, though it was made for adults. These have black anodized tempered aluminum shafts, and nylon insert ferrules for a super tight, (salt water) corrosion-proof joint, and an asymetric blade design. At 2 lbs, 10 oz, it's light & has super stiff blades.

Cannon Escape 2-Piece touring Kayak Paddle Aluminum

Because this is a touring paddle, we feel the aluminum is adequate strength-wise while decreasing the cost $30 to $40 from what a glass shaft equivalent would be, but if you pull really hard like we did in Kauai trying to go upstream against the current, it is possible to bend the shafts a bit. One could argue that the CBH paddles we carry are a better value, though the CBH's do not have the warranty that the American made Cannons do. Oval grips for both hands like all Cannons, stocked in 90" and 94" sizes, with other sizes by special order. The blade color is more of a dark yellow now, not the pumpkin color shown.

Note: way back this paddle used to be called the Nokomis, and now Cannon has gone back to that name again; it is the same paddle. The "Serenity" name has also been used for Cannon's narrow tour paddles. Serenity now!

We also stock a four piece fiberglass version of the Serenity/Nokomis, and sometimes we will have four-piece aluminum shaft versions of the Escape, but not every variation of every paddle is listed on our site. You are always welcome to phone us at 925-820-BOAT to see exactly what's in our current inventory.
