The Riviera Vantage R8's blade is 8" wide... Being 1/2" narrower than the Vantage R8.5 it pulls through the water easier with less effort. With an ultra stiff shaft it allows the paddler to apply all the power he/she can to the water with none of the power being lost in the flex of the shaft. This is the lightest paddle in the Riviera Line-up with an uncut weight at 16oz. The all carbon construction gives this paddle superior strength and durability.
