Back in 2017, Selkirk introduced the first pickleball paddle to enable both power and control. The hybrid innovation, known as AMPED, quickly became a favorite among pickleball players nationwide who had previously had to choose between either a power paddle or a control paddle.


AMPED was the industry's first thick core innovation, coming in at 5/8” when all other paddles were 1/2” or less, and the first paddle to have power and control in one paddle. The original AMPED series delivered the power necessary to put away shots, alongside the control needed to dominate at the net, and, in doing so, forever changed the landscape of the sport.

In 2023, Selkirk Labs unveiled Project 005, a paddle that sought to combine what players love most about the VANGUARD Power Air and the Labs Project 003, delivering an iteration of what the future of a balanced power and control paddle could be, in an edgeless, open throat package. Following the launch of the 005, we took player feedback into great consideration and completely overhauled the paddle to improve it from all angles to deliver the AMPED Pro Air.

Fast forward to today: the AMPED Pro Air delivers a paddle that strikes a happy medium between power and control, giving players the familiar feel of an all-court paddle, while incorporating next-level technology to enhance power on groundstrokes, serves, and put-away volleys.

The next AMPED Pro Air is designed for those who refuse to compromise on their game.

Welcome to the next era of AMPED.

What’s New?

The Selkirk AMPED Pro Air introduced several technological enhancements when compared to the previous Selkirk AMPED, including:

  • A New Face: Marking a milestone in performance technology and a new benchmark for the industry, the AMPED Pro Air’s FiberFlex+ Fiberglass Face provides an ideal balance of power and consistency.
  • An Improved Core: Taking a progressive leap from the original X5 Core, the AMPED Pro Air’s Honeycomb 16mm Core offers next-level control, power, and sweet spot reliability.
  • An Upgraded Design: Incorporating advanced, proprietary design features, the AMPED Pro Air achieves enhanced power, precision, aerodynamics, and ball control.
  • An Improved Grip: Designed to enhance player control and court agility, the octagonal grip on the AMPED Pro Air offers comfort while elevating shot precision and responsiveness.
  • An Enhanced Texture: Originally developed in Selkirk Labs, the AMPED Pro Air uses the ProSpin+ Texture for a more durable spin surface that offers incredible consistency and precision in shaping the ball.

The AMPED Pro Air is the pickleball paddle for players who refuse to compromise on their game. 

Crafted to deliver balanced power and control in one uncompromising paddle, the AMPED Pro Air offers the smooth, familiar feel of an all-court paddle, alongside the next-level technology necessary to dominate on the court.

Easy to maneuver in the transition zone and boasting a manageable weight during intense rallies, the AMPED Pro Air provides solid power and good touch for resets, catering to both power players and those who appreciate finesse. The blend of power and control makes it suitable for competitive play, offering players the edge they need to dominate the game.

The Selkirk AMPED Pro Air is the paddle for players who want it all—and then some.
