The key benefit of the X5 core is that it produces more power and provides players with a larger sweet-spot to connect with winning shots. Alongside the FiberFlex paddle face and X5 core, the Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA features EdgeSentry technology, comfort grip, vibration dampening, and torque suppression.

Paddle Face & Edge Guard
The Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA Pickleball Paddle face is what helps set the AMPED INVIKTA apart. Selkirk has built the AMPED INVIKTA using their FiberFlex technology which gives you a Fiberglass paddle face that is excellent at producing spin, control, and power. Surrounding the AMPED INVIKTA paddle face is Selkirk’s EdgeSentry technology which protects the paddle face with a low-profile, lightweight edge guard that is both durable and hard-wearing. The outcome is a well-balanced paddle that is smooth and stable when striking the pickleball.
The Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA Pickleball Paddle features Selkirk’s X5 Honeycomb Core. The X5 core is made from a thick polypropylene polymer that helps to create power and elevate performance regardless of your shot choice. Built into the INVIKTA core are vibration dampening and torque suppression technologies that work together to create the steadiness that the INVIKTA has become known for. The vibration dampening reduces the frequency of vibrations in the paddle, helping to relieve the symptoms of tennis elbow, while the torque suppression helps to steady the paddle when you make off-center hits.
What usually happens when you make an off-center hit is the ball-impact twists the paddle, causing the ball to spin out of control. With the Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA, the X5 Honeycomb Core works to control the ball as if you connected with the center of the paddle, meaning you give away less unforced errors. Not only is this a result of the X5 core, but your game is further helped by the insanely good paddle grip that the INVIKTA also provides.
Dimensions & Weight
The Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA Pickleball Paddle is an elongated pickleball paddle that measures 16.5″ in length. What’s more, the paddle face is slimmer than most (7.36″ wide), providing you with more speed, and aerodynamic qualities for big-hits. The AMPED INVIKTA was designed by Selkirk with the input of top pros like Tyson McGuffin. The brief was simple, to provide a brilliant mix of power and control, without creating a heavy touch in the paddle. However, to really maximize the INVIKTA’s power Selkirk focused on creating more leverage in the paddle with the elongated design. When smashing the pickleball from the back of the court, or overhead, the AMPED INVIKTA cuts through the air with devastating force, helping you put away more winning shots.
The Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA is available in two weight options. The lightweight paddle weighs between 7.3 – 7.7 ounces, whereas the mediumweight paddle weighs between 7.8 – 8.4 ounces. Depending on your preference, you should pick a paddle weight to suit your game. If you like to play with a lightweight paddle that is built for strategic players who spend the majority of their time at the net, then opt for the lightweight option. The benefit of playing with the heavier paddle is that you will be able to generate more power in your shots.
Handle & Grip
The Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA Pickleball Paddle grip is another work of art. The grip length is longer than most paddles, measuring 5.25″ in length. This elongated grip better allows you to create more leverage in the paddle when hitting hard. Likewise, you will get a better reach around the net when dealing with dink and spin shots. Selkirk wraps the INVIKTA handle with their Comfort Grip which is designed to create a comfortable and confident hold in the paddle – combining the Comfort Grip with the Torque Suppression built into the X5 core gives you a very stable feeling when playing with the Selkirk AMPED INVIKTA pickleball paddle.
