Quick Links

The design and production of Gearlab’s top-quality outdoor adventure gear has been inspired by Taiwan’s incredible ocean-mountain-urban landscape trifecta. Gearlab’s headquarter is set in the vibrant urban setting of Taipei, less than an hour drive from rushing rivers, lush vegetation, craggy cliffs, an impressive set of national parks. A subtropical island in the Pacific Ocean, Taiwan also boasts miles of magnificent ocean shoreline.

Overview

Combining proven Inuit ingenuity and advanced carbon fiber technology, Akiak is a versatile paddle for all conditions. The narrow blade also creates less resistance in the air, allowing paddlers to explore further with less physical strain. Greenland style paddle blades make contact with the water covering roughly the same surface area as Euro-blades, but the even distribution results in a smoother stroke and more control in the water.
The Akiak is available in a shouldered or smooth version. Some kayakers prefer the ledge between the loom and blade to ensure optimal hand placement and enhance leverage, fostering a consistent stroke. Other paddlers prefer a shoulderless design because it allows for more flexibility in hand positioning for various strokes. The Akiak is available in three vibrant colors to match your kayak, gear or mood.
