Welcome to SmartStroke

SmartStroke is a canoe paddle designed for those who are looking for a light-weight, durable, and comfortable paddle at an affordable price. Made from a carbon/epoxy composite prepreg, this paddle is sure to fit the needs for all types of canoers. Electronics within the handle will allow a canoer to check speed and GPS coordinates via Android or iOS application. This project is a part of the Composite Materials Engineering curriculum (CME 475/480: Senior Design Project I and II) at Winona State University.
