Selkirk description

The culmination of more than two years of research and development in collaboration with top pickleball professionals like Tyson McGuffin the VANGUARD Power Air meets the requirements for power and spin.

As professional pickleball became more focused on power and spin over the past 2 years, the larger community discovered the benefits of power and spin. This is especially important when it comes to dominating your opponent. VANGUARD Power Air technology was developed to assist these players and provide a paddle that allows full control of the court with power and maximum spin.

Selkirk Labs

Selkirk Labs developed Project 002 as its first iteration, and the Power Air uses feedback from Labs members to optimize 002 by adding additional control through the SuperCore has. In addition, Selkirk has improved the consistency with 360° Proto Molding and improved aerodynamics. Continuing, the next level edges provide durability with Aero-DuraEdge edgeless technology.

While edgeless technology has been around for several years, Selkirk is committed to introducing many new performance innovations for edgeless paddles. The Power Air focuses on durability. It also offers a lifted feel, is built entirely with a polymer honeycomb core, and is the power paddle the pickleball community has been asking for.

Power Air technology

  • Air Dynamic Throat: To provide maximum flex, the Air Dynamic Throat is now larger and even closer to the handle, providing optimal airflow and improved ball control.
  • ThroatFlex: The new ThoatFlex open throat design, developed to provide maximum flex when you make contact with the ball. It also extends dwell time on the paddle and improves power play for unbeatable consistency.
  • ProSpin+ NextGen Texture for long-lasting, maximum spin surface: ProSpin+ NextGen Micro Texture technology is designed to generate more spin than any other technology on the market. This allows you to dominate the ball with ease on the court.
  • QuadFlex 4 Layer Hybrid Face: Initiated at Selkirk Labs with Project 002, the QuadFlex 4 Layer Hybrid Face features a unique blend of two layers of Fiberflex and two layers of Quantum+ Carbon for effortless power and control.
  • 360° proto-molding: 360° proto-molding technology is designed to provide 360-degree composite coverage, using a proprietary high-pressure manufacturing process.
  • Aero-DuraEdge edgeless technology: Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless technology was introduced to increase edge reliability along with FlexFoam edge perimeter. It consists of our special impact-resistant blend of composite and polymer.
  • FlexFoam Perimeter: FlexFoam Perimeter technology is achieved by injecting a specially formulated foam into the entire perimeter of the paddle. This increases durability, adds weight, increases the sweet spot and absorbs vibration with every stroke. This allows for a stable, reliable feel. This technology was originally developed at Selkirk Labs for Project 002.
  • SuperCore Polymer Honeycomb Core: The groundbreaking SuperCore made of polypropylene with honeycomb structure was developed for the QuadFlex hitting surface and provides maximum power while improving your ball control.
