The Joker

Choose your passion and get your kayak

If you like to charge through pushy waves and across boiling eddy lines at the speed of a barracuda the Joker is for you. Turning on a dime when loading the stern is a breeze and pirouetting along eddy lines might become your new normal.

The Bliss

Choose your passion and get your kayak

The Bliss will take the fun on your favourite play run to a new level. At a length of 245cm and it’s planning hull it’s perfectly suited for playful whitewater and spicing up your runs with freestyle moves along the way.

Black Jack

Choose your passion and get your kayak

The Black Jack is a modern white water kayak that perfectly bridges the gap between a river runner and a creek boat. High volume and high rocker give it the dry line ability and buoyancy that a full on creek boat needs.

Royal Flush

Choose your passion and get your kayak

The Royal Flush is an ultra-dynamic kayak, that excels in deep waters, but doesn’t mind a low water creek run either. If you like to pull the stick and swing the hips, the Royal Flush is your weapon.

Queen of Hearts

Choose your passion and get your kayak

With a width of 62cm, a length of 250cm and a volume of approx. 245 liters, the Queen Of Hearts brings light paddlers and youngsters between 35 and 65kg the fun we love about Black Jack and Royal Flush.

Ace of Spades

Choose your passion and get your kayak

You immediately feel at home in the Ace of Spades! The boat is dependable, precise and intuitive to paddle, it has reserves and manners which we need in order to feel safe in difficult whitewater.

Where you find us

SPADE lookbook 2022

We are deeply passionate about whitewater kayaking. It’s not just a sport. It’s the people we meet, the adventures we get into along the way and the places we get to see. As a company we strive to protect these places the best we can and are aware of the challenges our business faces as a result. We feel the best way to remind us what’s at stake, is to go to these places and fall in love with them.

What the Team says

Spade Team reviews.

The first time I paddled the Black Jack I knew we were going to be friends. Forgiving of those indecisive moments but a willing ally when some extra speed or a tricky manoeuvre is needed, it’s a boat that I always look forward to paddling. [···]

Louise Capel

The Black Jack
Black Jack, Ace of Spades or Royal Flush I don’t really care, because I love them all. [···]

Pirmin Dlugosch

The Black Jack
The Black Jack is my boat of choice! No matter if I’m paddling easy white water or big waterfalls. It is playful but also gives me enough confidence when I need it. [···]

Epic Walter

The Black Jack
Though I would pair up better with Black Jack, I’m in love with the Royal Flush. My Guru’s who designed it says “Royal Flush is your „Hattori Hanzo sword“ of extreme white water weapons.” Yes they are right! It’s fast, it’s precise and most [···]

Our Rivers are changing. Are you?

Spade Kayaks is a member of 1% for the Planet. It all started when two businessmen met and bonded over their shared love for the outdoors. In 2002, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, created 1% for the Planet and started a global movement.

“The intent of 1% for the Planet is to help fund these diverse environmental organizations so that collectively they can be a more powerful source in solving the world’s problems.”

1% of Spade Kayaks yearly sales are donated to the Free Rivers Fund.

a paddler owned company

Spade Kayaks was founded »by paddlers, for paddlers«.

Good to know.

We are a young company. But we ain’t no greenhorns. Spade Kayaks has a backup of a few generations of paddlers, with an overall paddling experience of more than 125 years.

We are paddlers.

We have spent most of our life time traveling around the globe, searching for the perfect river. Paddling is a state of mind and a way of living and therefore plain essential for all of us.

The perfect boat.

But how perfect can the perfect river be without the perfect boat? We always wanted to build our own kayak, according to our ideas and conceptions.

 

Mission accomplished?

Not yet! We for sure keep on working hard to get as close as possible, as soon as possible to our objective target. Word.
