NEW TOWN OF TAIPEI, TAIWAN, December 15, 2021 / – Gearlab Outdoors beat strong competition last month to win the Paddling Magazine Industry Award 2022, where the rolling float was named “Best Kayak Attachment”. The blow came shortly after the Kalleq Greenland paddle was named “Best High Performance Paddle” by Paddle TV, demonstrating that the Taiwanese company continues to grow stronger and that its unique products are recognized time and time again by experts at. industry.

The Rolling Float further demonstrates Gearlab Outdoors’ commitment to providing innovative and cutting edge solutions to kayaking problems. It seeks to solve a common problem that many beginner kayakers face, learning to ride and overcome fear, while building confidence and developing good technique and habits. Described as “like training wheels for your bicycle,” the rolling float is designed to be gripped in a variety of ways when various rollers are practiced. Holding the rolling float increases the paddler’s buoyancy and makes the techniques much easier to perform, encouraging the user to activate their abdominal muscles and use their body’s natural buoyancy and balance. While learning to ride normally involves many frustrating failures leading to “wet rides” and cumbersome returns, the Rolling Float allows novices to learn a roller safely and easily, with practice.

As the experience builds and muscle memory is formed, the Rolling Float gradually becomes unnecessary as the paddler moves to roll with a paddle instead. It retains its usefulness, however, as it is also designed to be a paddle float, fitting on paddles of all shapes and sizes to aid in self-rescue techniques while on the water.
