The S2 paddle continues the tradition of a standard shape, yet it boasts the largest surface area of all of our paddles. The S2 was the brainchild of US Open Silver Medalist, Tony Tollenaar. With a shorter handle than the Epic, the S2 has a larger surface area on the face of the paddle. In fact, the S2 has the largest sweet spot in the Pickleball industry. The extra large surface area improves the overall power and control of the paddle, giving every shot more consistency.
If you are a hardcore Pickleball player that doesn’t mind a slightly shorter handle, the S2 is your paddle.

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

Selkirk took on the largest research and development effort the industry has perhaps ever known. Theirengineers developed a proprietary QuadCarbon technology with two layers of carbon fibre 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.
