Bonzai Zephyr Carbon Fiber-Wood SUP Paddle – Sawyer Paddles

Bonzai Zephyr Carbon Fiber-Wood SUP Paddle – Sawyer Paddles

The Bonzai Zephyr Carbon/Wood SUP Paddle is about as tough as carbon fiber stand-up paddles get. This was the first product introduced when leading canoe and kayak paddle company Sawyer first forayed into the SUP paddle market. Forty years of experience told them that a longer shaft (which attracts greater force) and potentially threatening surf environment warranted a virtually indestructible and yet lightweight paddle. The result, the Bonzai Zephyr carbon/wood stand up paddle, is an ideal marriage of form and function- it is visually stunning, lightweight, and tougher than the competition.

The carbon/wood SUP paddle achieves its strength by leveraging the best qualities of wood with composite paddle construction. The shaft of the Bonzai Zephyr stand up paddle effectively uses a wood core surrounded in a sleeve of carbon, a clever alternative to popular techniques of using a hollow carbon sleeve or a foam core. The carbon/wood fusion adds little weight while boosting the strength of the shaft significantly. The blade features fiberglass, carbon fiber, laminated wood, and a Dynel Tough Edge around the perimeter of the blade for durability. This is the go-to paddle if your chief concern is balancing toughness and a light weight.
