The all-new Vanguard Power Air Epic Pickleball Paddle from Selkirk is packed to the brim with innovative pickleball technologies to make it ideal for power players looking to enhance their pace.
This paddle is designed to generate maximum spin for controlled, aggressive drives and it also features a larger sweet spot than other similar power paddles. This classic-shaped paddle gives you a great balance of control and power, and, according to Selkirk, the Vanguard Power Air Epic is unquestionably the most aerodynamic of all Selkirk paddles due to the extra air flow provided by its Air Dynamic Throat located close to the handle.
But the technologies don't stop there! The Vanguard Power Air Epic also incorporates ThroatFlex to increase dwell time on the paddle to provide unbeatable power and maximum consistency, ProSpin+ NextGen Texture produces a reliable, long-lasting maximum spin surface, and, the QuadFlex 4 Layer Hybrid Face further increases power and control by blending two layers of Fiberflex and two layers of Quantum + carbon for, you guessed it, even more power.
This paddle sports an Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless Technology for increased durability and aerodynamics that incorporates FlexFoam in the perimeter for pace and a larger sweet spot, and, last but not least, the SuperCore Polymer Honeycomb Core delivers that consistent, familiar feel!
Selkirk Vanguard Power Air Epic Red Pickleball Paddle
A culmination of over two years of Research & Development, in partnership with top Pickleball pros such as Tyson McGuffin, the VANGUARD Power Air addresses the need for both power and spin.
As professional Pickleball became increasingly focused on power and spin over the past 2 years, the larger community discovered the benefits of power and spin, especially when it comes to dominating opponents. VANGUARD Power Air technology was developed to champion these players and provide a paddle that enables full control of the court, with performance power and maximum spin.
The first iteration of this technology was developed in Selkirk Labs and launched as Project 002. Utilizing Labs member feedback, Power Air optimizes the 002, providing additional control from the SuperCore, enhanced consistency with 360° Proto Molding, and next-level aerodynamics and edge durability with Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless technology.
