Selkirk description

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

As professional pickleball has increasingly focused on power and spin over the past 2 years, the greater community has discovered the benefits of power and spin, especially when it comes to dominating opponents. VANGUARD Power Air technology was developed to support these players and provide a paddle that allows full control of the court with power and maximum spin.

The first iteration of this technology was developed at Selkirk Labs and launched as Project 002. Power Air uses feedback from Labs members and optimizes the 002 by adding additional control through the SuperCore, improved consistency with 360° Proto Molding and aerodynamics and next level edging provides durability with Aero-DuraEdge edgeless technology.

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