About Adventure Technology®:In 1993, an idea for the first, whitewater-specific, ergonomic paddle was born. That idea grew into Adventure Technology (AT), a paddle maker who doesn’t seek to “balance” adventure with technology, but rather seeks to push both concepts to the outer limits. AT now delivers premium whitewater, touring and fishing paddles known for excellence in design, craftsmanship and innovation. In 2009, AT joined the rest of the Confluence Outdoor family to continue its legacy of dedicated research and development, all in the name of a good adventure. www.atpaddle.com
