Choose your kayak

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

What the Team says

Spade Team reviews.

I love to paddle the Royal Flush because it is by far the fastest and best maneuverable boat for my weight and size (185cm and 87kg) I am proud to paddle Spade since the beginning and to use it not only for difficult Whitewater but for many [···]

Marcel Bloder

The Royal Flush
The Black Jack is my absolute favourite kayak ATM. Its incredible, how fast it skips through Rapids If you keep her on line. Fast and playful, the bj wants to be paddled actively, but If you do so, it becomes a special blend. [···]

Andi Haberländer

The Black Jack
For me, the Blackjack is the perfect choice to cover all whitewater-delicacies i need. It is fast and super responsive! With it´s edgy shape i have alot of fun cruising around in easier whitwater catching eddies and boofing around. [···]

Sanna Haibach

The Black Jack
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. [···]

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.
