Another level or performance is now within reach.

Driven by a love of the game, Selkirk has a singular passion: to lead the Pickleball industry in innovation, design, and performance. The game matters to us. Our community matters to us. So we pinpointed what matters most in Pickleball: speed and consistency.

Determined to deliver the unwavering speed and consistency you need to take your Pickleball game to another level, we dared to envision the future of pickleball paddles.

We believed that Carbon Fiber technology had not yet shown its true colors in our industry, so we set out to change that. We took on the largest research and development effort the industry has perhaps ever known. Our engineers developed a proprietary QuadCarbon technoligy with two layers of carbon fiber on each side, instead of just one. This unique approach delivers a paddle like no other that gives you ultimate consistency, accelerated ball velocity, an extra large sweet spot, maximum spin, and perfect feel. VANGUARD by Selkirk was born.

More than a performance paddle, the VANGUARD is the next frontier.

The Hybrid Tech

quadcarbon face

Designed to achieve a larger sweet spot and longer resonance time, the VANGUARD face features proprietary bi-directional, cross-weave carbon fiber technology in two seamless layers, on both sides of the paddle. The double layer provides twice the stiffness in all directions, flattening the ball more on each hit, to give you consistency, maximum spin, and perfect feel.

X5 HONEYCOMB THICK poly CORE

Built for consistent speed, using advanced polypropylene honeycomb technology, the VANGUARD core works in conjunction with the revolutionary QuadCarbon Face to absorb the vibration from each hit and yield unwavering speed. The thicker core of the VANGUARD Hybrid transfers more energy into the core, giving you a larger sweet spot and a softer feel.

LARGER SWEET SPOT

Handcrafted to achieve an unrivaled, well-balanced, and solid paddle, the VANGUARD’s durable edge guard technologyis low profile and lightweight.

VANGUARD GEO GRIP

Created exclusively for the VANGUARD, the geo grip offers supreme comfort, enhanced wicking capability, improved traction, and premium style.

The Power Tech (Coming Late Summer 2020)

Quadcarbon+ face

Not all carbon fiber is created equal. The highest grade carbon fiber is stiffer and lighter. Because only the best is good enough, VANGUARD Power features premium Toray carbon fiber face—the market leader in carbon fiber technology, used by aerospace companies. QuadCarbon+ technology provides unrivaled speed, a larger sweet spot, and longer resonance time for ultimate consistency, supreme spin, and flawless feel.

x6 honeycomb streamlined poly core

Engineered for persistent power, the VANGUARD core is comprised of state of the art polypropylene honeycomb technology. Performing optimally in conjunction with the proprietary QuadCarbon Face, the vibration from each hit resonates in the propylene core and delivers unmatched speed. The streamlined, aerodynamic core of the VANGUARD Power absorbs less energy, delivering maximum speed across the face of the paddle with superior sound and feel. .
