Selkirk VANGUARD Power Air Invikta Pickleball Paddle

Declared by Selkirk to be "The Ultimate Power & Spin Paddle," the VANGUARD Power Air Invikta is engineered for attacking and power. As with the other models in the Power Air line, this iteration of the top-selling Invikta shape brings innovations tested and proven via Selkirk's Labs program to their broader line of pickleball paddles. The Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless Technology and Air Dynamic Throat reduce wind resistance and increase swing speed which, along with the elongated shape, result in tons of power. Next, Selkirk's ProSpin+ NextGen Texture applied atop a hybrid face material incorporating a first-of-its-kind blend of carbon fiber (for control) and Fiberflex fiberglass (for power), you'll be able to generate top spin and cut shots like never before. Finally, the molded one-piece feel and FlexFoam injected beneath the perimeter result in consistent paddle performance...and a confidence boost for you.

The VANGUARD Power Air Invikta has a 5-1/4" handle length for one- or two-handed shots, while the handle measures 4-1/4" in circumference and arrives wrapped in Selkirk's popular Geo Grip. At 16-1/2" in overall length, by 7-3/8" wide, the Invikta provides great reach and more than sufficient surface area.

The VANGUARD Power Air Invikta from Selkirk Pickleball offers top-end power for those with the soft hands to control it up close. Experience the latest in pickleball paddle technology, developed to give you an edge.

Reviews of the VANGUARD Power Air Invikta Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:


"Power. Spin. Maneuverability. Forgiveness. Until now, pickleball players have sacrificed one or more of these attributes for a single paddle, but the research and development team at Selkirk has forged a new sweet spot with the Vanguard Power Air. On first strikes with the Power Air Invikta, I felt some serious pop off the face coupled with enough spin to make me confident in my ground strokes right away, almost like I had a tennis racket in my hand. With a thin maneuverable profile, a gritty textured surface, and the extended Invikta shape, I was not surprised with how the Power Air played from the baseline, but I loved the feeling of effortlessly bending the ball around and keeping my opponents deep in the court. What I did not expect was the confidence I felt at the net to place dinks wherever I wanted without having to hyper focus on hitting the center of the paddle every time. The Power Air has the largest sweet spot of any edgeless paddle I have tried. If you are looking to add more power to your game, are transitioning from tennis or love playing singles, the Power Air Invikta could be the paddle you have been waiting for."

4 of 5 Almost Great September 14, 2022
Reviewer: Frog Rock from Bainbridge Island, WA United States  
The VANGUARD Power Air Invikta Paddle has been a good buy. The gritty surface gives the ball plenty of spin. The paddle is responsive and feels light in the hand. The handle is long enough for two handed backhand.
I would say my biggest issue is that there is a large dead spot at the top edge of the paddle. for that price point, it should be all sweet. It's not, and that's a shame.

5 of 5 Best paddle yet September 2, 2022
Reviewer: Charles Patti from Scottsdale , AZ United States  
I like to try various paddles,  always looking for just the right one.  I love this new paddles--lots of spin potential and power. Nice grip although I prefer a longer grip.  Paddle is pushing the price limit but if you are looking for spin and power, I recommend this one.

4 of 5 Mixed feelings September 1, 2022
Reviewer: Eddie from CO United States  
The quality of this paddle is unsurpassed.  It's beautifully designed and crafted.  Even the paddle cover is top notch.  For me however, this paddle was not a good fit.  It has great power, but control and dinking were difficult to execute shots with predictable outcomes.  If you're looking for a pure power paddle, this one might be OK for you, but I need more of an all around model.  For now, I'm sticking with my Engage.

Reviewer: David Carter from Waco, TX United States  
This paddle is ideal for me as I use power and spin in my game.  I also easily adapted to it from my old paddle.
