Churchill

Listen, the river is calling. For so many canoeists the call of the river trip is an energy that burns deep inside with gear just packed away from the latest, but already planning the next. Our Churchill canoe touring paddle is built with our Premium fiberglass blades, known the world over by paddlers for their amazing combination of stiffness, light swing weight and abrasion and impact resistance. You can now stop cringing as you stare through that gorgeous, crystal clear water and see rocks going by. Both the river paddler and open water cruiser will appreciate the stable, gentle strokes of our blade shape, the light feel in your hands and the exquisite quality 50 plus years of experience brings.

  • Our longer, rectangular, slender design is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. Moving a loaded boat has never felt so good. This allows the paddler to maintain a higher cadence.
  • Our longer, rectangular, slender design allows for a higher cadence. Maintain an easy touring pace all day long or ramp it up for your fitness paddles.
  • Dihedral, the ridge down the middle of the power face, allows for smooth and stable forward paddling. A core philosophy for Werner.
  • 10 degree shaft to blade offset. Designed to keep the blade more vertical through the power phase, it benefits your forward paddling, but still allows for smooth turning and control strokes. .

  • Our palm grip is comfortable and allows the fingers to be relaxed as opposed to splayed. Made from a high impact resistant ABS plastic, it will be protected from the rigors of the outdoors.
  • Available in our Translucent Red color for our Premium fiberglass blades.
